I love Prince George's style. William didn't wear long pants until he was 7 or 8.

I don't like the short pants any more on George than on his dad. At least in the 80s it was a bit more common. Would love to see them change it up a bit. Even if going for the old fashioned look, a bit of variety. His birthday photos we got a bit.

Love Charlotte in her little dress. She was do adorable

But seeing their smiles and delight are the best accessory on any child

Some posters will say that it is not modern or practical or fashionable for a boy to be dressed in knee socks and shorts like George is but i much prefer this look than how many of kids his age appear today. George is royalty and this is how upper class aristocrats dress their children in a traditional prep english style.

Charlotte is just so cute in her smock dress - i love the blue she suits it. Personally i don't like pink as colour and it is great to see Kate not sticking to pink colours for her girl and dressing her in blues and other colours as well.

The kids are looked great in Canada so far

I absolutely adore how George and Charlotte are dressed. Mi think the shots and long socks look very cute and proper on George. The only thing I don't like is the fact that the shorts are red. Mother stick out a bit. Beige would have been nicer, in my opinion. Charlotte looks so awfully cute in her dress. I always love seeing your no children dress like young children instead of mini-adults.

Still think it looks dumb. Especially on a play date.
Charlotte, on the other hand, looks lovely as usual.

I wonder if they did red, in honor of Canada and in order for him to stick out and be easily visible if he got to running around and slipped away.

Excellent point. I didn't even think of it that way. Makes sense though.

The reason I thought about that was because the Queen is always brightly colored (for visibility)...so I figured at a garden party full of children and other adults (vetted or not) probably easier for security to keep track of him.

I agree, I can't see why George is always dressed in shorts and knee socks.
Especially since it was a bit chilly in Canada; why put the child in shorts and then have him wear a sweater?

Tradition is all very well, but it comes to a point where it is just silly!

I think that is how boys school uniforms look for the boys until they are 11 or something. I think the shorts+socks is a rather common way to dress little boys in the UK, especially in the upper classes.

Yup, George’s whole look is basically a replica of what he’ll be wearing every day for the next 7-8 years of his schooling. Sun, rain, snow he’ll be in those shorts and knee socks.

I think it’s good that they’ve been teaching him that this is what he wears when ‘’working’’, be it royal work or school work. Sure saves on time deciding and fighting what is appropriate and what is not. It’s not like he can turn up on Buckingham palace balcony in a Batman t-shirt.

I think it's shame they don't dress them like normal children and not something from the 1930 upperclass. At first it was cute now it's like they want them to dress better than the other children at the party. Would love to see them in normal outfits just long pants for George for a start and not blue

George has worn long pants before at public outings. This was an official event.

Not sure what the point of 'this is an official event' is

A pair of long pants doesn't equate casual. In many circles, shorts would be considered the more casual option. No one is suggesting he wear jeans and a batman shirt. There are modern forms of dress clothes for kids.

It was an official outing for George and Charlotte as I understood it.

He's been snapped in long pants more than once when just out and around with his parents or nanny.


It's how the BRF chooses to dress their kids. They don't live like other people do. Not surprising they continue some of the older traditions that are still around in some circles.

Exactly! And I think this is a bit similar to how their friends dress their kids. Not when they are going to the petting zoo. But when you are having a birthday party, or taking pictures, celebrations and when you "dress up". When a man would wear a suit, this is a normal formal way of dress for upperclass british children (and not only upper class I assume). When George is taking his pictures, on the balcony or like here when he was at a formal-ish childrens party (most women in dresses etc), his version of formal dress is precisely alright. Just like the queen has a scarf when hanging around the horses but a hat and coat on the balcony, George has his jeans at the petting zoo, and his shorts and socks on the balcony.
