Kate Middleton and Prince William are currently on a royal tour of Sweden and Norway meeting Scandinavian communities and spending time with the royal family.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – who are expecting their third child – have been delighting royal fans with their outfit choices during the trip, including snow boots and bobble hats.

However, one of Prince William’s fashion choices actually has a very important and emotional meaning behind it.

The 35 year old wore a bobble hat while visiting an ice-hockey rink with the Duchess of Cambridge.

The burgundy knitted hat featured a big fluffy pom-pom and a white star pattern.

William’s unlikely style decision was actually paying tribute to the charity Orphans for Orphans.

His Royal Highness got the hat from Gandys London, which raises funds to enable the building of children’s homes around the world.

It’s a very special story as the fashion brand was founded by survivors of the 2004 tsunami, who sadly lost both of their parents.
