Lotty Bunbury tells why Royals are drawn to the Island paradise that inspires her beachwear.

The Duchess of Cambridge could rest assured that Prince George was well prepared for any days on the beach during his recent first overseas tour. As the proud owner of his very own bespoke pair of Lotty B trunks, he is following in a long line of stylish devotees of the exclusive Mustique brand, including his mother and his aunt Pippa Middleton, as well as Elizabeth Hurley and Jerry Hall.

"We don't do baby sizes, so I made him a one-off navy pair in the Passion Fruit design from the new collection, which he wore on Macaroni Beach," says designer Lotty Bunbury, who presented the Prince with his shorts while he was on Mustique with his mum and her family earlier this year.

It was no surprise to Lotty, whose husband Michael is the island's doctor, that Kate chose Mustique for her son's first foreign holiday, where she joined her family for its annual break on the island in one of its 74 luxury villas.
