When Prince William and Princess Kate’s newborn made his debut outside a London hospital, he did so in a shawl steeped in royal history. The baby, whose name has not yet been announced, was swaddled in a shawl made by G.H. Hurt & Son, a Nottingham, England-based maker of lace knitwear that was founded in 1912.

 

The company has a “long-standing connection with The Royal Family,” Kensington Palace said in a statement. The newborn’s father, Prince William, and siblings, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 next week, all had shawls made by G.H. Hurt & Son when they were babies, according to Kensington Palace.
