The Royal Baby is already impacting charities before birth


While Britain and the Commonwealth waits with bated breath for the birth of the future monarch, the middle of the US is not to be left out. From celebrations at the London Tea Room, to expert commentary on whether the baby is a boy or girl, the centre of the US has its eyes set firmly on London.

And it goes beyond simple celebration.

Inspired by the philanthropic focus of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the London Tea Room, located in downtown St. Louis, is making sure that the Royal birth has impacts beyond the immediate global celebration.

In partnership with Nurses for Newborns, the London Tea Room is hosting a Royal Baby Shower, and is encouraging people to come by the Tea Room and bring gifts. Instead of sending these gifts to London, they will be given to low-income mothers with newborns, to help them with their new arrivals.

“It’s just a really great way to celebrate,” Jackie James, co-owner of the London Tea Room, said. “It will bring some help to charities that are really in need.”

James is also aware of many other examples in the St. Louis area where people have been holding Royal Baby showers for charity.  Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis is also getting into the spirit of things, and plans on serving tea and biscuits to all the mothers in their maternity ward on the day of the Royal baby’s birth. So, many a pinkie will be raised in tribute to the future monarch.
