Just like his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, and grandmother, the late Princess Diana, the new royal baby seems to be a style setter. When Catherine and Prince Willliam brought little George Alexander Louis, the Prince of Cambridge, home from the hospital Tuesday, he was swaddled in two blankets, setting off a rush of copycats, apparently. The cute Aden & Anais bird-print blanket has reportedly sold out, while the merino wool christening blanket by G.H. Hurt & Co. seems to be on back order. [The Cut]
