It was a lovely surprise to see the Duchess of Sussex's fun new video for her 40th birthday on Wednesday, in which the royal launched a new women's work initiative.

Mother-of-two Meghan appeared with actress Melissa McCarthy in the video, while the family's pet dog, Guy, slept in the background and Prince Harry made a cameo juggling outside the window.

Along with the Duchess' beautiful home décor, we also noticed a stunning designer baby blanket draped over the chair next to her, which we presume is used for the couple's newborn daughter Lilibet.

The cream and beige blanket features a large 'H' and is by designer brand Hermes. The 'Avalon' blanket is made from 90% merino wool and 10% cashmere – a dreamy combination!

This particular blanket is available to buy in-store at Hermes and Harrods for £770, although the same blanket in a rose shade is in stock online right now. US shoppers can buy Meghan's baby blanket from hermes.com.

We can just imagine little Lilibet all wrapped up in her soft luxury blanket while mum or dad sing her a lullaby and brother Archie chats to her.
