Sisters Amelia and Magenta keep royal baby spirit in full flow with kind gift to Prince
TWO girls from Broadmayne are royally delighted after receiving a thank you note for a very special gift.
As royal baby fever swept the nation, sisters Magenta and Amelia Beavis went for the personal touch as they sent Prince George a ‘snuggle bear’ to mark his arrival.
Prince George was born on July 22 and both girls celebrated their birthdays in the same week, with Magenta turning seven and Amelia, 11.
Mum Linda Beavis said her daughters were surprised and delighted when they received the royal thank you card through the post.
She said: “The girls were excited when Prince George was born and they wanted to send something.
“It’s a really nice card with a photo of Kate and William and Prince George. In the letter we explained that the gifts were bought locally.
“The girls are really pleased, we didn’t expect to get a thank you note.
“We just wondered if anyone else from the area had received one.”
The congratulations card they sent to the prince was bought from Top Drawer and the bear from Baby Birds in Dorchester and the girls are hoping their gift has pride of place in Prince George’s nursery. An excited Amelia, who attends St Mary’s Middle School in Puddletown, said: “It might be in his pram right now or even in his cot.”
Broadmayne First School pupil Magenta and her sister Amelia spent a long time browsing the toys on offer at Baby Birds before making their selection and director Emma Charlesworth, pictured left, said they had chosen well with the snuggle bear as their royal gift.
She said: “It’s a really popular toy that we do.”
Asked why they had chosen the toy, Amelia replied: “It’s so soft.”
