A GIFT OF A ROYAL PRINCE

Our warmest and sincere congratulations to TRH the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the safe arrival of Prince Louis Arthur Charles on Monday 23rd April 2018.

All the staff here at G. H Hurt & Son were delighted to see the Royal couple emerge from St Mary’s Hospital today, with their newborn son wrapped in our ‘Nottingham Lace Knitted Baby Shawl’.

We feel honoured that William and Kate have again chosen our beautiful merino wool lacy knit baby shawls, knitted here in Nottingham, and in doing so have continued a tradition for the next generation of Royals.
