With a baby on the way, you would think the Duchess of Cambridge would be well on her way to collecting cute baby clothes for herself.

In fact, Kate, 31, actually just gave away a package of baby clothes to one of her favorite causes. Just a few weeks before the palace announced she was expecting, the charitable mom-to-be donated a hamper of new baby products to East Anglia Children's Hospices (EACH), and now they have put it up for sale in a special auction.

The hamper, which had the reserve price of around $160, has already clocked up bids of up to $410 as of Monday afternoon.

Russell Baker, Lord of Little Moulton, from Bracon Ash, Norfolk, decided to start the auction to help the charity raise money towards its $24,000 a day operating costs.



Laura Shearing, Norfolk Fundraiser for EACH, said, "The vital funds that Russell continues to raise really will go a long way in supporting local life-threatened children and their families."
