Prince George, getting a lift from his pops, Prince William, made a splash wearing a white swaddle from Brooklyn-based retailer aden + anais.
Prince George may already follow in his British mother’s fashionable footsteps, but his street style is all New York.
The royal baby made a huge splash when he was carried out of the hospital by glowing parents Prince William and Kate Middleton in a white cotton swaddle with little birds on it from Brooklyn-based retailer aden + anais.
Jungle Jam Swaddles like the ones which Prince George wore out of the hospital and to ride home with parents Will and Kate.
The clothing vendor’s chief executive officer, Raegan Moya-Jones, said she was having a bad day when a colleague excitedly burst into her office brandishing a photo of the little prince swathed in her swaddle.
“Not in a million years did I ever anticipate the future king of England was going to come out in an aden + anais swaddle,” Raegan Moya-Jones told the Daily News.
