Yesterday the world celebrated when Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed the arrival of their baby boy.
The infant, who doesn't have a name yet, is already receiving congratulations from world leaders, multigun salutes near Buckingham Palace, blue water running in the fountains of London, and a video from the Muppets. But the sweetest tribute has to be from Dunkin' Donuts.
The coffee and doughnut chain has announced the arrival of the Royal Munchkin, an old-fashioned Munchkin doughnut hole dipped in pink, blue, and white sprinkles.
Royal Munchkins will be available for one week, beginning Wednesday, July 24, at all Dunkin' Donuts locations nationwide.
If you're looking to celebrate the royal birth in a "cooler" way, Baskin-Robbins is offering a baby shower cake, decorated with baby booties, for $31.99. The nine-inch round cake can be customized with any flavor ice cream and cake and can be personalized with the baby's name (or in this case, "Your Royal Babiness").
If you're flying across the pond for the royal festivities, Baskin-Robbins in the United
Kingdom is offering a new Royal Baby signature ice-cream cake, with a price to match the royal baby's weight: £8.60 (about $13.25). Available for a limited time, the Royal Baby cake features caramel chocolate crunch ice cream and chocolate cake and is decorated with a chocolate frosting ribbon, a white chocolate bow, and gold chocolate candies.
Here's Kermit and Miss Piggy wishing the royals the best of luck with their new bundle of joy:
