The Royal Baby Publicity


William and Kate’s baby finally arrived earlier this week amidst huge publicity. Only onThe Royal Baby Publicity Twitter, mentions of the royal baby reached a peak of 25,300 tweets per minute. So, it’s no wonder brands have scrambled for royal baby publicity. Publications have done their best too.

Some of the covers, pics, tweets and videos are lovely and a hit, some others might be a a bit of a miss. Many of them are simply hilarious though. I thought I’d compile some of the best below for your viewing pleasure. Which one do you like the most?
