Luxury candle makers Heir & Grace have marked the birth of the Royal Baby with a limited edition piece called Charlotte.
The princess bought a flurry of Royal fever when she was born on May 2, to become the second child of William and Kate and fourth in line to the throne.
Anna Evans, owner of the luxury brand based in Windsor, released the limited edition candle to mark the occasion.
There have been just 100 made and each is hand signed and numbered.
Anna said: ‘We essentially wanted to create a modern, fresher take on the classic cotton fragrance to represent the fresh, white cotton we imagine Charlotte will be wrapped in.’
The Charlotte scent is described as having a rose and freesia-based scent as having a distinctly ‘warm, milky aroma of sandalwood’ with ‘a fresh, floral fragrance running through it’.
‘You will also be able to detect “fruity notes of crisp apple, watermelon and cassis,’ Anna added.
All proceeds from the ‘Charlotte’ candle will be donated to the Sebastian’s Action Trust, a cause which support families of seriously-ill children and works to ensure that they get quality time together to relax, recharge and rebuild, never having to face life alone.
Sebastian’s Action Trust has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
CEO Jane Gates, OBE, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted that Heir & Grace has chosen our charity to benefit from the sales of their exclusive candles.
‘As a charity that supports families of seriously-ill children we understand that each birth is precious and proceeds raised will go a long way to provide emotional, practical and social support for those who need it the most.’
The Duchess of Cambridge, herself a patron of charities that support terminally-ill children, would not doubt be pleased about this partnership.
Anna added: ‘In a time when lots of big brands are using the Royal Baby as a profit making exercise, we wanted to use it as a chance to do something good, to help those less fortunate than us, even with this small gesture.’
Heir & Grace sent a candle to William and Catherine, as well as one to Charlotte’s great grandmother, the Queen, at Windsor Castle.
