A sentence from the original novel, in French, has been laser engraved into the crown of the cap which when translated -reads “ to establish ties, to me, you will be unique in the entire world” Before returning to his planet, the little prince tells the pilot he will be able to hear his laughter anytime simply by looking at the stars and remembering - and as a reminder of that laughter in the stars, a golden star adorns the clip.
