Prince William's Push Present for Kate Middleton Is Going to Blow Her Mind

giftAs a token of his appreciation for carrying the future King of England for nine months and then pushing him out of her royal lady parts, Prince William bought Kate Middleton a push present. A really good push present. A push present only a member of the royal family could really buy.

According to reports, the Duke has commissioned the Queen's jeweler to find a pink diamond to put in a brooch for the Duchess. A source said: "William has been giving this a lot of thought for a long time. He’s got lots of ideas from studying history of art at university and decided on a pink diamond as a centerpiece because it is pretty and feminine. It will be a thank you present to Kate."

Aw. I know some people are against them, but I personally think the notion of push presents is sweet. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate, like a perfect pink diamond, but a little token of appreciation goes a long way for a new mama. After all, after giving birth, it's all about the baby, so it's nice to do a little something for the person who did all the work.

Although "push presents" sound like a relatively new thing, they've actually been in the royal family for generations. Prince Charles gave Princess Diana a gold medallion and a gold "W" charm after she gave birth to Wills. I just don't think it was referred to as a push present then. And come to think of it, maybe that's why people find the idea so obnoxious -- because of the name. It does conjure a bit of a spoiled brat-esque image. Maybe we should start referring to them as "love tokens" instead? That seems a lot less controversial. So, guys, Prince William has gifted Kate Middleton with a love token. Isn't that sweet?

Did you get a push present?

why do American's call the U.K England? The U.K is made up of four parts, England, Wales, Scotland and part of Ireland.

Do you guys keep calling her Kate Middleton just to annoy your readers? She is not a celebrity who chose to keep her famous name. She is a Duchess who chose to go by Duchess Catherine.

I think it is a wonderful thing for a Husband to be so thoughtful . When a Woman gives birth, all the attention goes right to baby, But Mothers should be given gifts too , after all didn't she just bring a New life into the world ? But the name this is being called  "a push present " takes away from the "love " in which this is given. It should be called a Mothers gift ot a Love gift . Just saying .girl giving flower
