Princess Charlotte is the newborn daughter of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. She was “presented to the media” on 2 May.

In the absence of more important things to worry about, gossip magazines devoted themselves to investigate the origin of the clothes that the newborn wore. And it turns out that the clothes (cap and jersey) worn at such a solemn occasion were bought in a shop in San Sebastián: Irulea.

We are happy for this Basque shop, as it is certainly going to get a great international exposure in view of the interest generated by anything done by one of the royal families that still remain in the world. Furthermore, it is curious to note the interest raised by the fact that the cap was not on properly.

Our attention is also drawn to the selective application of “nationality” to the Basques. If they generate good news, chances are that they will be labeled as “Spanish” or “French” (depending on the “side” of the border where they were born). However, if the news is bad, especially if linked to terrorism, they are most likely to be labeled as “Basque”.

We can´t recall a single news item in which an ETA terrorist has been described as “Spanish”. A few days ago, Urbizu Hilario San Roman was arrested in Mexico. He was cataloged as a Basque member of a Basque terrorist organization. We have reflected on this curious dichotomy on previous occasions.

In any case, our congratulations to the owners of Irulea. This social event for the greater glory of the British monarchy will surely result in large sales for them.
