Bad news for fans of Prince George’s style: The bathrobe the young British prince wore to meet President Obama Friday has already sold out.
The prince stole the show with the dapper bathrobe he wore to his post-bedtime meeting with President Obama and the First Lady. Ardent followers of the prince’s wardrobe have already taken note: U.K.-based company My 1st Years, which designed the prince’s luxury white bathrobe with blue patterned trim, said its £27 ($39) bathrobes are no longer in stock, CNN Money reported.
The company, which makes personalized baby gifts, will only accept pre-orders following a flood of interest in the accessory. A Princess Robe similar to Prince George’s only with pink trim is currently also available only on a pre-order basis. “We can’t believe Prince George wore our robe to meet President Obama,” My 1st Years said on Instagram. “Doesn’t he look adorable!?”
Co-founder Daniel Price said the company tries to make its products affordable so that “everyone can dress their little one like a Prince or Princess.” It describes the robes on its website as “Fit for a prince!”
Prince George’s fashion choice may not have been an accident; the company has previously sent him cashmere blankets and high-tech trainers to the prince as part of a celebrity outreach program. Read more
