Kate's Baby Is Due in April!

Find Out Who Designed Prince George’s Blue Jumper

04/01/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

Prince George may only be 8 months old, but he’s already stealing the royal limelight with his adorable fashions.

While posing for the recent official photograph with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and dog Lupo at Kensington Palace, the little prince sported a powder blue knit top bearing his name.

The bespoke cashmere jumper was gifted to Prince Charles by Welsh knitwear brand, Corgi and the doting grandfather was only too happy to pass it on.

“We were thrilled when we noticed that he was wearing our gift,” Chris Jones, a director at the company, said in a statement. “It was a lovely, natural family photo,” he added.

Established in 1892, Corgi is known for its luxurious handmade socks and knitwear — an adult-size jumper “could cost up to $832.” They’re also a favorite of Prince Charles, who awarded the family-run company a Royal Warrant in 1989.

“He gets his socks from us on a regular basis,” a spokesperson for the company told PEOPLE.

Handmade from the “finest cashmere” in the small town of Ammanford, in Carmarthenshire, this particular design was made especially for Prince George.

However, any parents coveting the prince’s adorable knit should continue to check the company’s site. “It’s something we might consider offering in the future,” said the spokesperson.

One thing we can be sure of — Prince George’s royal tour wardrobe will not disappoint.

I love the Royals but I think it’s ridiculous that people run out to buy their stuff. That being said, this company is missing out not offering that jumpsuit. Hurry it along, you can make millions.

That photo is adorable!

The photo is adorable.

It would only look OK on a kid named George- otherwise it would be confusing……………

Hey on

Take that Kimye!

Kate looks like she’s forcing her smile. :(

“lori” – a sweater is called a jumper in the UK. It is not a jumpsuit. And I totally agree they should produce those jumpers straightaway for the public; they’d make a bazillion pounds.

“Someone” – Kate looks relaxed, natural, and smiling with joy.

really? a whole story about a jumper…..slow day, eh people?

Jen on

That picture is all about George and Lupo. And if they make the “jumper” for the public, I think it is a given that it would be personalized for whoever purchased it. That is what makes it special.

“guest” – it is not a “slow day,” as you say. I think PEOPLE “BABIES” readers are interested to know details on that adorable sweater. That’s why we read this section, in part, for info on clothes, nurseries, baby names, celeb parenting and the babies they have.

exit82 – Loved that one!

Love the look on Lupo’s face! Prince George is gorgeous (like his parents).

Love that family.

If you don’t look close enough…it just looks like a design on his shirt. What gives…so its says his name. This isn’t newsworthy.

Oh yeah, let me just go run out and buy myself an $832 cashmere sweater. And I thought $150 for one of those was too expensive…

Melissa on

Prince George makes me smile!

Ohh adorable photo!

Canyon- I agree with you about Kate’s smile. And George is adorable (as is Lupo!)!

Deborah on

Couldn’t they have posted a photo with George looking at the camera? Why is there no color on anyone? Bad all around.

Billie Brown on

Love the photo. George is adorable. Lupo looks just a bit terrified – I just bet little George chases him all over the house now that he is crawling!
