Meghan Markle's Baby Shower Guests Received This Cozy Sweater — Does It Hint at Boy or Girl?
"Baby, baby, baby"
Sustainably-sourced, fair trade brand Lingua Franca, founded in 2015 by Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, shared a photo featuring one of their cashmere sweaters via Instagram on Friday, a blue piece with orange stitching that reads, “baby, baby, baby.”
“Any guesses whose baby shower we sent dozens of these to? 😊 🍼🤰🏽” the clothing line teased in the caption.
Lingua Franca confirms to PEOPLE that the custom sweaters were made specifically for Meghan and her baby shower guests, adding that they sent the pieces over to The Mark Hotel, where the party was held on Feb. 20.
“We hope she received them, and we hope she loved them,” a spokesperson for the company tells PEOPLE.
The royal blue hue has royal fans speculating as to whether it means Meghan and Prince Harry will be welcoming a baby boy. However, Meghan revealed in January that she and Harry have decided not to find out the sex of their baby ahead of time.
“We don’t know whether it’s a boy or girl, we are keeping it as a surprise,” she said.
For those who were hoping to add the piece to their own wardrobe, the piece was custom made, so this exact sweater is not available to purchase.
Lingua Franca’s hand-stitched sweaters have quickly become the chicest way for celebrities to send a message. Connie Britton wore one of their tops reading “Poverty is Sexist” in cursive lettering on the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet as a way to show their support of the Time’s Up movement – a decision which her stylist Erica Cloud told PeopleStyle was all Britton’s idea.
“I don’t want to take credit for that,” Cloud said. “I fully support that move because I think that’s what this is about, right? The more I thought I about it, I thought it was genius and brilliant and I thought, this is the conversation we’re supposed to be having. It’s not really about the clothing, it’s really about the message.”
Britton also owns more of the brand’s powerful pieces, including one that reads “Until we’re all equal,” which she wore to the 2019 Women’s March in Los Angeles.
The statement-making brand also released a number of Ruth Bader Ginsburg-inspired products, including a sweater that reads, “All rise,” in conjunction with the film On The Basis of Sex.
Other celebrity fans include Chelsea Handler, Debra Messing, Tim McGraw and Melissa McCarthy.
Lingua Franca’s sweaters, hand-stitched by women in New York City, retail for $380.
Attendees to Meghan’s baby shower, including Serena Williams and Amal Clooney, also walked away with Cuyana totes filled with some of the royal mom-to-be’s favorite brands, including Jo Malone’s “tangy” Green Tomato Leaf scented candle, Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder and Susanne Kaufmann Body Butter. Also in the “thank you” bags were products from Honest Beauty and Rodin.
