There are few things more British than the birth of a royal baby. As the world awaits the arrival of the latest member of the English Royal Family, Perfocal.com is offering free newborn photography for UK babies born on the same day.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are expecting their baby any day now. And as with previous occasions such as the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, the official royal photographs of the occasion are almost as eagerly anticipated.
To commemorate the occasion of two of the nation’s most popular royals, online photography marketplace Perfocal.com is giving expectant parents in the UK a unique way to celebrate with newborn photography.
For babies born on the same day as Harry and Meghan’s royal bundle, Perfocal.com will offer parents a free replica royal photoshoot. This will be done in the same style as that of the official royal photographs, released after the event, and is likely to feature the baby and both parents.
However, the site is going one step further; for babies born in the same hour as the royal newborn, parents can receive free birthday photography for their children up until the age of 18 (According to the site, “This includes birthday parties, portraits, etc”).
“Many will be focussed on the Royal baby, but we’d like to celebrate every baby born on this special day,” said Tony Xu, founder of Perfocal.com. “We’re delighted to offer the free photoshoot for expectant parents and hope that the service we provide makes them feel like royalty!”
Eligible parents will have a month to apply for the offer, which can be done by uploading a photo of their baby’s (or babies’) birth certificate. Applications will be accepted up to one month from the royal birth.
