New royal princess Charlottes' bonnet was gifted by nanny

ANI  |  London 

The off-white bonnet Princess Charlotte donned when she was introduced to the world, was a present from her nanny, bought in Spain.

The mother of the Duchess of Cambridge's live-in Spanish nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrello, had bought the clothing from a shop in the northern Spanish city of San Sebastian, it has emerged, the Mirror reported.

Susana Villar, Owner of the 82-year-old city centre clothes shop, Irulea, said that they were clueless that bonnet was intended for the new Princess and were "delighted" with the revelation.

She added though the bonnet was bought with matching little coat and shoes, since the baby was under a blanket they weren't sure if she was wearing those too.

Villar said they had received call from the unnamed woman five or six times a few months ago who enquired about clothes for a new-born baby, before she actually came down to buy the outfit.

Since she didn't know if it would be a boy or girl, she didn't go for anything pink or blue, and purchased white or beige garments.

The shop's owners took to Facebook to boast their royal connections and wrote, " You all know the new royal baby, a princess called Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. What you don't know is that for her debut in society her parents chose an off-white little outfit made by hand by Irulea. From San Sebastian direct to the Royal Court."

On their Facebook page, they added: "Dress the princes and princesses of your house in Irulea....just like the Royal Households do.
