Pippa, the sister of Duchess Kate, was one of the 22 people who witnessed the christening of the 3-month old son of Prince William and Duchess Kate. She is not one of the seven godparents, but she sure does think so much of the royal baby that she had a special gift made for him.
So what was the special gift?
Pippa gave Prince George a gift that is like no other. She had his hands and feet cast in silver that was created by Wrightson and Platt, a company that makes "lifecast sculptures" in London.
There are some lifelike sculptures on Wrightson and Platt's website, including a similar silver cast of a newborn's feet. The cast takes only 30 seconds to make. A baby's feet are placed in a jelly-like mixture of water and a seaweed-based powder. Each sculpture comes with personalized engravings.
Paying $11,000 for a christening gift might sound like a lot of money for a baby, but the keepsake will be for a lifetime.
It might be the perfect gift, but it is not an original one. Queen Victoria commissioned Mary Thornycroft to sculpt all of her nine children's hands and feet in alabaster over a century ago, according to the Daily Mail.
