What do you get for a baby who already has everything?

The gospel choir who performed at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding may have just found the perfect gift.

To congratulate the new parents following the birth of Archie, the Kingdom Choir have performed a special lullaby dedicated to the baby boy.

The group – who performed a rendition of Ben E. King's 'Stand By Me' in front of an estimated global TV audience of 1.9 billion people at the nuptials – said they wanted the lullaby to be "personal and connect with mother and child".

Choir leader Karen Gibson said she hopes Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get to hear the original lullaby and that it will bring them joy.

"To congratulate Harry and Meghan we recorded them a little lullaby some time ago," she said.

 "I feel so linked to Harry and Meghan after the wedding. I don’t know if we would get a chance to sing at the christening. Put it this way, we’ve not had the call."

On Tuesday, Karen tweeted on behalf of The Kingdom Choir expressing their happiness at the royal baby's arrival.

She wrote: "Congratulations to their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of their baby boy. Love from all of us in the choir. We are so happy for you. God bless."

To mark the royal couple's first anniversary, the Kingdom Choir will perform their much-loved hits at London's Royal Albert Hall on May 19.
