Nimble Turns Royal
A few months ago, I received an anonymous phone call with no caller ID, the type that you’d either ignore entirely or pick up immediately because you never know what the call is about and, more importantly, who it is from.
At the time, something inside of me told me to answer, and to my pleasant surprise, it was a call asking to feature Nimble in a royal book. It was all hush-hush and secretive, so I wasn’t sure if it was for real until I received the official email explaining what it was all about.
On that call, I learned that Nimble was one of only 12 UK brands that they are featuring in the book that celebrates the birth of the first baby of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, titled Our Royal Baby. I was chuffed! I knew Nimble was doing something right, but who knew that it would be royal family worthy?! Our Nimble ethos resonated very well with the book’s values and what Harry and Meghan stand for regarding consciousness around ethical living.
A few weeks later, I then had a call from the Royal Correspondent, Robert Jobson, who has a fantastic CV of writing several royal family books, including The Queen’s Jubilee and Prince Charles’s Seventieth Birthday. I don’t remember speaking to anyone who’s got a pedigree like his in my entire life. Before the phone call, I had to collect myself to ensure my voice didn’t give away how nervous I was. But Robert was charming and down to earth. He was very calm and genuinely interested in my story and how Nimble started. After 45 minutes, we said our goodbyes, and it felt like the interview was a natural conversation.
Shortly after that call, we received the first draft of the interview and our product page in the book. I had a few correspondences with the publishers to perfect the feature, and I think we are on to a winner! I couldn’t believe how well the author communicated the story of Nimble. It’s amazing how a very talented writer and journalist could tell our story in such a captivating but genuine way—no wonder why he is where he is
The book will finally be launched at the Ritz Hotel on the 4th of September. I’m incredibly excited as I’ve never been to this place, and it will also be my first time to be surrounded by many important people in the circle of the royals. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes on the day itself, so please watch our social media feeds.
In the meantime, I need to get started looking dapper for this event! Check out Our Royal Baby once it hits the shelves for a fantastic read!
