It’s the new princess’s first headline-making accessory.

Twenty-one months after welcoming their son, Prince George, Prince William and Princess Kate stood on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital on Saturday to introduce their second child to the world.

And as the new mama stunned in another Jenny Packham dress — the same designer she wore while leaving the hospital with her firstborn — her baby girl carried on her own tradition.

While sleeping soundly in Kate’s arms, the couple’s newborn daughter wore a sweet bonnet with a white knitted blanket draped over her.

As it turns out, the shawl, from GH Hurt and Son Ltd., has a special meaning for the couple: Not only did big brotherGeorge sport a similar one during his own debut, but the company has presented several to the royal family over the years, including one to Prince William when he was a baby.
