The gifts will come pouring in soon enough. But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's unborn child has already received one very special present indeed – a lullaby specially written for the baby by a respected British composer and recorded by a New Zealand soprano.
Paul Mealor, who wrote music for Prince William and Kate's royal wedding, has penned a tune called "Sleep On" as a gift to the baby, due in July. It will appear on Hayley Westenra's upcoming lullaby album Hushabye, set for release in the U.K. on June 17.

He was wide-eyed and all smiles as he took Kate as his wife at Westminster Abbey last April. But, like royal watchers around the world, the Duke of Cambridge hardly slept a wink the night before his big day a year ago.
The crowds gathered on The Mall, the London thoroughfare in front of Buckingham Palace, and the excitement of his impending wedding watched by the world made him restless, he tells interviewer Alan Titchmarsh for an upcoming ITV1 documentary on his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
"I hadn't slept at all that night because obviously all the crowds were on The Mall," he says in Elizabeth: Queen, Wife, Mother, which airs in the U.K. June 1.

As Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge wrap their first year of marriage, Penny Thornton – former astrologer to Princess Diana – says the couple's stars are perfectly aligned for another happy year ahead.
"You couldn't have put the astrological symbols in a better place, " says Thornton on the pairing of Kate, a Capricorn (born January 9, 1982) and William, a Cancer (born June 21, 1982). "They even have the sun/moon tie up. It's classic symmetry."
Looking to the stars to see what the year ahead will hold for the royal couple, Thornton says: "It's all about re-establishing the popularity of the monarchy and they will continue with that."

The world watched with bated breath as Kate Middleton took her first steps out of the car and into Westminster Abbey on her wedding day, one year ago Sunday.
As hundreds of thousands of people in the crowd greeted her arrival with cheers and gasps, hairdresser Richard Ward also found himself speechless – despite having spent the whole morning with the bride-to-be, creating that famous and much-emulated demi-chignon with his colleague James Pryce.
"When she got out of the car and I saw her properly in the dress, the whole thing. I couldn't even speak, she looked so unbelievable," Ward tells PEOPLE.

Meet the Peeple's Princess!

Featuring a fascinator-wearing Princess Beatrice and a train-holding Pippa (Peepa?) Middleton, the diorama is one of the finalists in the Washington Post's sixth annual Peeps Diorama Contest (the first-place winner's creation was a take on the Occupy Movement).

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Queen Elizabeth at church for two services on Christmas morning – and they drew quite the crowd eager to see them.
With many watching, the couple walked to and from church with much of their family. The Queen, however, took a car to the services – just a short drive from her home at Sandringham, Norfolk. Key in her family's thoughts and prayers: Prince Philip, who is still in the hospital after undergoing emergency surgery on Friday.
William and Kate were joined on the walk to the 16th century St. Mary Magdalene Church by Prince Charles; William's cousins Princess Beatrice and Eugenie; and newlyweds Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall. Kate, in an aubergine-colored coat by an unnamed British designer and hat by Jane Corbett, was flanked by husband William, 29, and her brother-in-law Prince Harry, 27.
