Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, the brand said: “We were so excited and astonished to see the cute bow on Lili. It looks great and is one of our most popular styles...

They continued: “We are big fans of the royal family and love staying up to date on all things about them. It is truly an honor to be associated with them, particularly as the tastemakers and style icons that they are. We were completely surprised and delighted to see the bow on Lili and we hope to see her in it again!”

The bow is hand-made in Utah and with its delicate design, we’re not surprised that the brand has seen an increase in orders of the pretty accessory.

Duchess Meghan is a big fan of supporting small, independent brands with meaningful backstories, and Village Baby - owned by mothers Meggie, Kelli, and Alexis, who have eight children between them - is no exception.

The ladies explained: "Our brand reflects our attitude that it takes a village to raise a baby and mothers should work together to support one another. We were inspired to start our own brand after each having kids and searching for baby products we could trust to be amazing and affordable at the same time."
