The new limited edition cream bear, which costs £125, has been handmade by traditional teddy bear makers Merrythought especially for the Royal Collection.

Only 100 of the 19cm-tall toys – made using alpaca fleece with 100 per cent cotton back and pure silk – are available to buy.

The bear, finished with a cream bow around its neck, has an embroidered golden crown and “2019” on one of its feet.

According to the Royal Collection shop website: “Featuring a hand-embroidered nose and smile, each bear has a truly individual personality and is simply finished with a luxurious satin ribbon.”

The bear comes in a cream presentation “Limited Edition Royal Baby Teddy Bear” box.

Merrythought has handmade traditional teddy bears in Ironbridge since 1930.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already received a number of teddy bears for their baby on their travels.

The child, who will be a great-grandchild of the Queen, is expected to arrive in the coming days.
