The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge have a daughter – and her gift from New Zealand is wool:
. . . New Zealand’s official gift to the Royal couple will be a selection of woollen baby items from Hutt Valley company, Stansborough, including a pelt teddy bear.
“I wish Prince William, Catherine, Prince George and the Royal Family all the very best,” says Mr Key.
A 21 gun salute will be fired from Point Jerningham, Wellington to celebrate the birth.
Note to Editors:

The company produces a range of accessories, home interiors, and baby wear. The Stansborough yarn was also used to costume many of the main characters appearing in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies.
