Louise's outfit is wonderful and I love her hat too. It's very reminiscent of the cloche hats worn in the 1920s, and overall her outfit gives off a 20's vibe as the coat reminds me of the "Princess Coats" little girls used to wear then. Granted, this was in the 30's, but it reminds me a lot of the coats Elizabeth II and her sister Princess Margaret used to wear as children. Princes Nicolas and Aymeric looked very smart in their suits, as did Princes Gabriel and Emmanuel. Princess Astrid's children also looked nice.

Could somebody post a photo of Princesses Elisabeth and Eleonore at the funeral? I couldn't find any photos of them in the article posted.

Prince George, looking very cute, on one of the Christmas photos taken last month wearing a collared shirt, a jumper with a soldier guardsman design and blue shorts.

According to the dailymail "the jumper is believed to be from Cath Kidston – and cost £20. The young Prince's outfit is completed by Rachel Riley blue shorts (£49) and his favourite navy Early Days shoes (£29)".

Little George is so adorable and his outfit is quite sweet, but it is a little on the old fashioned side for me. It reminds me of little boy's outifts from WWII, I think it's the shorts that do it for me. Little boys nowadays generally don't wear these particular style of shorts (the more fashionable look for boys of George's age in England is rugby shirts and jeans) so I guess they are just unfamiliar for me.

George's jumper is from Cath Kidston and it's already sold out, though they are planning to make more of them, meaning that it might be in stores again: Prince George's sold-out Christmas tank top 'could go on sale again' - Telegraph

Thanks a lot for the links. Princesses Elisabeth and Eleonore looked wonderful, I love Eleonore's coat in particular.

George looks absolutely adorable in his outfit. The old-fashioned aspect appeals to me, because I'm a conservative dresser, and feel that a classic look beats trendy look on any accession. When I have my own kids, I'll be taking a leaf out of Catherine's and Sophie's books in terms of attire styles.

LOL Little boy attire in the UK and the US isn't that different after all. With warmer temps in California though I'd have used a polo shirt for my son.

As for George's traditional outfit, I'm not surprised that he's dressed that way. The BRF children have been wearing outfits like his for decades. Even James and Louise wear outfits today that their older cousins would have worn in the 1980's.


The Belgian royal children are usually dressed in similar looking outfits for these occasions so I wasn't surprised to see what Phillipe, Astrid, and Laurent's children were wearing for the funeral.

Well you are 100% correct in reference to little boy's outfits, but not necessary for formal photos. I thought it was a great outfit on George as it is quite the ticket to now dress in vintage clothes. All upscale stores in Chicago, New York and Dallas are reverting to styles of the 40, 50 and 60s. Women are once again very classy and men the suit/sweater vests and top coats in winter. Everything old is certainly new again. Just wish they were the same prices as years ago. I guess some TV shows have made there mark in clothes.

You are right about the BRF wearing those outfits. It's a upper class/aristocracy thing - all the boys wear clothes like that. As you said we still see James wearing similar clothes as his cousins from the 80's and he is a child of the 2000's. James in a vest jumper and shirt + James in shorts and buckle shoes

I am sure George will wear something similar but it's the norm for the upper class.

I liked George's jumper and shirt but not a fan of the knee high socks but if it works for them then why not.

I like the coats on the Belgian royal children - Gabriel and Emmanuel's coats were lovely and very appropriate.

I love the way George is dressed. Boys in shorts and knee high socks are just amazing.

Royals-They don't need no stinkin' fads and trends for the children :)....If it worked for great grandpa or grandma it works for baby :) practical and serviceable clothes that wear well to just be kids in; When they grow up they can have the pretty gowns and nice suits with bling.

This photo was taken at the ned of November... isn't it a bit too cold to wear shorts? But then again, I'm quite used to Kate wearing light frocks with no coat at all

You're all correct about the fashion for children when it comes to the BRF. I've also noticed that especially the Wessex children wear a lot of old fashioned things. Viscount Linley's daughter Margarita also wears old fashioned outfits, but with a modern touch IMO. I largely love old fashioned clothes, but I like them when worn like Princess Estelle of Sweden does, as in more vintage. I also agree that it's a general aristocratic and upper class thing to dress children in old fashioned outfits. In Europe, especially in Portugal, I've also noticed that upper class children wear more old fashioned outfits. The Portuguese children's shop Papo d'Anjo (I do believe that the AAA's have worn some of their clothes before) sells outfits that are quite old fashioned but with a modern twist.

I was just mentioning the latest trends as a sort of comparison.

That's an interesting thought, but as others have said it's the general upper class way of dressing children, so I can imagine that George does wear similar outfits at home.

In November it was mild in London so it would be warm enough to wear shorts. We did have some rainy and cold days towards the end of the month however. Having said that, I live in Greater London so the weather could be a bit different. Greater London is quite a big area but it doesn't take very long to get to Central London by train.

Pointless observation but no little royal girls have short hair do they? to be cliché, they all have beautiful thickish looking princess locks, Esp the Dutch girls...That is some great hair! It must be in keeping with the whole traditional style.

I know it used to be the custom in England for boys to wear short pants til they were somewhere around 8-10 years old. Is it still that way? I've noticed boys public (private) school uniforms are still shorts to a certain age.
