Reports say Prince George's hands and feet were dipped into a jelly-like paste for 30 seconds for British company Wrightson and Platt to make the bespoke silver sculptures. It is not known, according to sources, when Pippa had this done.
The sculptures reportedly cost around £7, 000 according to build.
Express says, Clarence House did not deny the existence of the gift but said that "If such a gift exists it would be a private gift." Members of the Cabinet on the other hand chose a pine toy box for Prince George.
Fans of the royals are now wondering what Prince George's uncle Prince Harry got for him on his special day.
Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, works for Vanity Fair. She also wrote a book on party planning in 2012 based on her experience in the Middleton family business.
Prince George's christening was held in St James's Palace Wednesday. The occasion remained a private affair with only the godparents, Prince George's parents Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, the Middletons, senior royals, and the Archbishop of Canterbury present.
New parents Prince William and Kate Middleton opted for an intimate ceremony leaving no room for plus ones.
Despite Cressida Bonas being rumoured to have been invited Monday, Prince Harry's current squeeze was not included in the guest list. Fans of royals say that this will put rumours of an imminent engagement between Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry to rest.
Cressy and Harry have been dating for 18 months and were rumoured to tie the knot in 2014. Prince Harry did not deny or confirm the rumour and there is no word from the palace, sources say.
Although Cressida Bonas fans were "disappointed" that she was not there during Prince George's christening, the third in line to the throne's day was a big day for the three-month-old future King.
