The royal baby, who is just a few days old, is already a trend-setter-in-training, thanks to his mamma’s fashion choices.

According to the Telegraph, in his first public appearance, he wore a 100 percent cotton muslin swaddle from brand aden + anais, and the mini-garb has already sold out in the U.K. “We are truly grateful and so delighted that the couple chose to debut the prince in aden + anais. It is such an honor,” said aden + anais founder Raegan Moya-Jones. (Word on the street is that although the blanket is sold out in the U.K., it’s still available in the U.S.)

But wait, there’s more. The baby actually wore two outfits during his debut, the second being a merino wool shawl designed by G.H. Hurt and Co., which is apparently still available as well.

  answer to Nancy,

    I don't see where from my comment you think I am angry... I am a very practical person and confident in myself and my choices that I don't feel I need to emulate someone else to be vain or trendy.

I was not a Lady Di fan,  I had a different opinion of her than most, but I have been so interested in Princess Kate and baby Prince George this past month.

 

It has been an interesting bright spot in our dismal world in this country that is being wrecked by congress and trashed by big business.

 

Most of us who have had a baby born in our family can relate to the ups and downs the couple have experienced.

 

It was a lot more interesting than watching the 'same old, same old' of our government.  Sometimes it seems as if Boehner and Obama could just do a replay of the the first disagreement they had over the budget because nothing happens that is new or that changes anything..  It is sadly ridiculous.

I think like most kind of normal American male people, I cant get all giddy over royal babies.  But that doesn't mean I don't like royal babies.  Just means I don't get what the hoopla is.  Glad it is healthy.  I do know one thing from my kinda point of view.  I hope these Prince people wont be so stuffed up as that old Queen bag and that big eared old Prince dude.  I can see getting tightened up for all the Royal functions and traditions and stuff, but then you should be able to just live life like people and not have to be 'on' 24/7.  Maybe laugh and hold hands or cram a hot dog in your mouth once and a while.  I don't know.  But the money and servants would be cool.

Amen to the comment that William cannot help who is grandmother and or the priviledges he was born to anymore then his new little boy.

 

William and his younger brother are hard working young men and do not go

out and seek the spot light.  Clearly, if William had his way he would live in

the country side and continue his passion flying helicopters and where he saves

peoples' lives.

 

He and his wife cannot help if people are going ga, ga and goo, goo over their baby.

I think seer is salivating a little too much over the visions of real and imagined atrocities he or she is gleefully writing about. In any event, the baby is innocent of all wrongdoing, and to wish harm to an innocent child is no better than those atrocities. For that matter, William is innocent too. He can't help that he is the Queen's grandson, and he has made no foreign policy. I think people who are so busy hating that they can't allow anyone else to be happy about the birth of a new baby are just too hateful and miserable to even waste air. If they aren't hurting you, who cares what you think? If you don't like them, don't read about them. Simple as that.

Why venerate the "royal family" whose lineage is connected to atrocities committed by the British Empire in their colonies in Africa, Asia, Middle East, South America, well everywhere. For one, imagine waves upon waves of pervert British pedophiles feasting on children in these colonies year after year after year... The British never apologized for these horrific crimes against humanity. I have not even mentioned the many massacres, pillaging... etc., etc., etc.

So sad there are so many haters here.  I think that Wills and Kate are adorable and I am so happy and excited for their new little prince.  Only wish Princess Di had lived to see it.  I love it all and if I still had little ones I would try to buy copies if I could.  It's healthy to dream.  They are good role models for young and old alike.  My blessings to them for a wonderful and happy life.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
