It's highly unlikely that I will see young Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge become King. That isn't a political observation, merely that I'm a couple of years older than his parents, and his father comes from a long-lived family (when they lay off the cigarettes, champagne and French cooking, at any rate).
The young Prince already has at least two shawls - a spectacular handspun and handknitted one from New Zealand, and the one he was wrapped in for his very first appearance. That wasn't handknitted, but framework knitted in Nottingham, by a company founded in 1912, using techniques that are far older. Another little piece of textile history.
