Prince George Debuts in Wool Shawl
July 26, 2013
The future king, George Alexander Louis, was wrapped in a white shawl made from wool when Prince William and Catherine first showed him off to the world.
The shawl was made by a small family run company, GH Hurt and Son in Nottingham, Australia. It is a blend of two wools in a fleur-de-lis pattern with hand-finished scalloped edges and patterned border.
The company experienced a rush of orders for the wool christening shawl, which costs STG45 ($A75), within 20 minutes of the first sighting of the future king.
