The mustard-hued band is made by American designer Jennifer Behr, and it is known as 'The Thada Headband'. The website description reads: "It is a classic silhouette that we can't get enough of. This padded headband has plenty of height, and is a versatile way to add polish to any look."

The parents looked overjoyed with their new arrival

Katy Perry has previously sported the teal version of Princess Eugenie's headband, so she's in good company when it comes to stylish accessories.

Over the years, royal babies have typically been introduced wearing a white blanket from Nottingham based brand, G.H.Hurt & Son, but it seems that Princess Eugenie is breaking tradition with baby August's cover-up.
