Prince George’s Bathrobe Sells Out After Obama Meeting

Once again, little Prince George is a trendsetter!

A white and blue trimmed gingham bathrobe the 2-year-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton wore when he met President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama has already sold out. The little prince’s parents had hosted the U.S. leader and his wife for dinner at their at Kensington Palace home Friday.

The robe was offered for 27 pounds (almost $39) at the online British retailer My 1st Years. However, you can pre-order the same item, which comes in a variety of trim colors and can be personalized to bear a child’s name.

“We can’t believe Prince George wore our robe to meet President Obama! Doesn’t he look adorable?!” read a message posted on the store’s Facebook page early Saturday. “You guys have gone crazy for it & it’s already sold out, but you can find your very own personalized royal robe.”

George had also worn navy velvet Little Boston Plane Slippers from Trotters Childrenswear and Accessories. The shoes, which are embroidered with red biplanes, are also sold out. They were offered for 12 pounds ($17).

George was allowed to stay up 15 minutes past his bedtime to meet the president and first lady. During their visit, he rode a rocking horse they gave him for his first birthday. A plush dog toy resembling the Obama’s pets Bo and Sunny, the couple’s gift for the boy after he was born, was also seen on a coffee table.

Outfits George has worn have sold out soon after he debuted them. Among them: A swaddle blanket he was wrapped in as his parents left the hospital with him after he was born, a blue cardigan he wore when William brought him to visit Kate and his newborn sister Princess Charlotte at the hospital last year and denim overalls he wore when he was 1. Kate, known for her chic styles, has also often spurred her own outfits to sell out quickly after she debuts them.
