1. It’s Spanish, from a shop called Irulea in the beach town of San Sebastian.

2. It is one of a kind. The bonnet was handmade—no two in the store are alike.

3. Princess Charlotte was wearing it backwards. Perhaps the commotion around styling Kate distracted from styling Charlotte!

4. It was a gift from Prince George’s nanny’s mother, who bought several sets in different colors, as she didn’t know if the baby was going to be a boy or a girl.

5. The color is called bone. The gift-giver also bought a matching jersey and slippers.

6. One thing we still don’t know: the price. The owner wouldn’t disclose the cost of the bonnet to People, saying, “It seems to me very ill-mannered to say that about a gift that someone might have given the royal family.”

7. The store owner was as surprised as anyone that Princess Charlotte was sporting her goods. She told People, “It was a huge surprise for us when we found out that the Princesita Carlota was wearing our goods!”
