The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate recently received a maternity package from Finland. The gift included some condoms.
Usually condoms are given to couples prior to any pregnancies. But apparently the Finnish government believes it’s never too late to practice safe sex.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate recently received one of Finland’s traditional baby boxes. On top of containing the standard mother and baby goodies like diaper cream, onesies and bra pads, the gift also included some condoms.
As usual, the box also held a picture book, snowsuit and a hooded towel. A spokesperson for Kensington Palace stated “It was a very thoughtful gesture and we’re very grateful for it. I’m sure the Duke and Duchess will be very interested to see the contents.”
The condoms might be interpreted as a less-than-subtle hint for the royal couple to take their time conceiving a second child. In actuality, they’re a standard inclusion in the box which is given to all new Finnish mothers by the country’s social security service.
William and Kate’s firstborn child is due later this month.
The Duchess will give birth in a private suite at St Mary’s Hospital.
