My favorite little royals' fashion goes to Estelle too. But they can put little Charlotte in a plastic, mud-covered sack and stupid tabloids will be on their knees. I already see big problems ahead for the poor child, due to the press. But I am digressing.

All these little royals are dressed so well, this is one of my favorite threads.

Erm, I think the reference is to the way Princess Caroline dressed her daughter Charlotte Casiraghi, rather than the way the Duchess of Cambridge may dress her baby, Princess Charlotte.

That being said, I think Victoria is following that trend (execept for Estelle's little rose coloured boots), and Estelle looks great and Madeleine is following suit with Lenore.

I agree with this. Sophie Wessex take note - this is how Lady Louise should be dressing.

Charlotte will be similarly dressed the same way Louise was dressed as a toddler: Lady Louise 2006 - the traditional dresses and black Mary-Jane's. Designer Rachel Riley makes dresses like this which Lady Louise wore a lot and Kate used Rachel Riley for George. I have no doubt that Kate will dress her daughter in more modern clothes, just as we have see with George, but I would imagine she would spend a lot of her time in dresses and smart shoes. Lady Louise was seen in "modern" clothes as a toddler but was seen in dresses and black shoes/white socks and tights a lot (and sadly still is, but we will get over that.) Lady Louise at the Windsor Horse Show 2006

'Made in Spain' is popular amongst the little royals.

Eleonore looks very nice. The outfit is appropriate for the event, and I love the muted shade of pink.

Eleonore looks lovely. It's nice to see her accompany her mother to an engagement. I love the colours she's wearing - I can imagine her mother in an adult version of her dress, actually.

I agree with Molly, I think Charlotte will be dressed more like Lady Louise when she's younger, but in a bit more of an "updated" way. It seems to be the traditional way of dressing little royals in the BRF. Viscount Linley's daughter Margarita Armstrong-Jones was also dressed in a similar way when she was younger (2).

I would have thought the family would have a traditional gown like the other Royal houses do.

Perhaps they made it easier as the babies were two?

And they are exquisite IMO. While a family gown passed through the generations would be lovely, it might have been easier to just have the twins use their own.

I thought the same at first, but as Marty91charmed has said, perhaps they bought the gowns from Dior because it would be "fairer" as one would've had to have had a bought christening gown in the first place. But, it would've been nice if the Monegasque christening gown could've been used for one of the twins, and the Wittstock christening gown (if they have one) for the other. What is the Monegasque Princely Family's traditional christening gown like?

I like the gowns a lot, they're nice and simple and the twins look comfortable in them. Their little bonnets are adorable.

Maybe they don't have a Wittstock christening gown?

I agree it's good to make things as fair as possible, esp for twins where one is heir and the other is not.

Maybe they do, but like with the Windsors it has grown so fragile that they had to retire it. Prince George was christened in a replica of the one that William, Harry, Beatrice, Eugenie and their generation all used, not the original 1842 gown.

Besides, with twins they needed two. In any case the new white silk-cotton Baby Dior robes were exquisite!

Poor Louise. At Easter she was dressed like a 6 year old, and now at the horse show she is dressed like a 60 year old. Can they not get her some fun age appropriate clothing!?!?

She was dressed perfectly for a horse show in my opinion. That is the style of clothes I see worn by girls of all ages - 6 - 60+ at equestrian events and shows, particularly if there is a chance they will be around horses in person.

I agree, her clothes seem perfectly normal to me for both her age and the occasion. The only thing I could see as seeming a bit "grown up" for her is the jacket that she's wearing in some of the pictures, but then I've spent most of my life in warmer climates (and any time I've spent around horses has been at the height of summer), so I probably wouldn't be the best judge on that one. But, for being at a casual equestrian event, the overall look just seems quite normal to me.

I don't see what the problem is. Louise is always dressed in a more conservative manner, and her attire at The Royal Windsor Horse Show is appropriate for the occasion, and for her age. I have a feeling that she chooses her clothing, and may prefer to be dressed more modestly. I loved the blazer she had in too. It gave the look a little bit of sophisticated touch.
