No official merchandise is going to be released in celebration of the birth of the royal baby, it has been revealed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have turned away from royal convention on several occasions, recently announcing that the arrival of their baby will be kept a secret so that they can "celebrate privately as a new family".
In another departure from tradition, it has been confirmed that a range of official royal baby paraphernalia will not be sold by the Royal Collection Trust following the birth of the Prince Harry and Meghan's baby.
"We have no new ranges to announce," a spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust told The Independent.
Several items which were released to mark the birth of the youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2018 are still available on the website.
The most expensive item still available is a commemorative pillbox, which is on sale for £35.
The lid of the china pillbox is decorated with a design of a lion and a unicorn, and features the statement: "Welcome to our new royal baby."
An official commemorative plate featuring the same design and message is also on sale for £24.50, reduced from £49.
While no merchandise will be sold when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby arrives, there are several items still available on the Royal Collection Trust which pay tribute to their wedding in May 2018.
