I agree, but he's not our son so we don't have a say. But imo on George the clothes look particularly silly. You don't have to dress him in Superman t shirts and Iron man shorts, but the 19th century look is just

Has it ever occured to you that these children like these characters and wearing clothes with Hulk or Elsa on them makes them happy? I highly doubt they or their parents care about advertising anything.

Just stating my opinion. No need to jump on me. If dressing like that makes them happy, then more power to them. I'm not their parent, but as an observer, I'm allowed to make a statement, just like you. I also know that when I become a parent, I will not have any character-themed clothing in my children's closets. They can have them as toys, but not as designs on clothing, backpacks, etc.

But it's not really a "19th century look" if late 20th century William and Harry were dressed that way too. Princess Caroline of Monaco dressed Andrea that way when he was a toddler. (check out Charlotte Casiraghi's christening photos)

First Lady Jackie Kennedy dressed Caroline and John Jr. in the 1960's White House exactly the way George Cambridge and Estelle Bernadotte dress today.

It's a timeless, very distinctive upper-class look for children. It will never truly go out of style.

Ha! Good luck with that :) I know a lot of people who intended to set hardline rules like that, and then realized arguing with a toddler over trivial things isn't worth the time.

I agree. In fact, while I wouldn't consider myself upper class like that at all, I tended to be dressed quite traditionally as a child, particularly for special occasions. My everyday clothes may have been a bit more modern, but not in a trendy way.

Personally, I love to see children dressed in more traditional/conservative clothes, because to me children look more like children when dressed that way. So many of the trendier clothes that children wear today look like miniature versions of trendy adult clothes. I just don't like seeing little kids dressed up like they're supposed to be "cool."

All I will say, is that it's up to the parent to set an example for what is appropriate, and acceptable. They can tantrum over a t-shirt, but it's my choice to simply remove the child from the situation. I run my classroom like a tight ship, and kids listen. I'm not worried about being outsmarted by a toddler.

And I would never expect to. However, it does seem odd that the style from 30 years ago is being used today. I suppose it is indicative of the class or Royal status in the U.K. But as someone who is from Midwest United States, it does look a little prissy to me.

Exactly. You don't argue with young children because you are not going win. say you are going to do something, do it and most certainly never give in to tantrums.

Eventually That way the child will realize a melt down over being told no about the Elsa or transformers shirt or shoes will only have negative consequences.

Anyhow, George is growing up in a family that is still very conservative and traditional and all his life he will be wearing suits or uniforms Like his father and grand father and great grandfather and...He will never be a fashion plate or a trendsetter and will almost certainly not have a thought about.

I did the same for mine when they were younger and we had a special event to attend ie: Christmas or Easter Mass, baptisms, their First Communions etc...My then 30 month old daughter daughter wore a robin's egg blue smocked romper which looked very similar to the ones seen on royal children to her brother's baptism. She only wore it once but it was just perfect for that special occasion.

Now at 15 and 13 they're good at choosing appropriate outfits for special events, but they make their own selections.

It's the style from much longer than 30 years ago. Google childhood photos of Prince Charles from the 1950's or the late King Baudouin and his siblings from the 40's.

They were all at some point dressed pretty much the same way George is today.

Again, it's a "look"-and not only from the UK and Europe. It's a way upper class moneyed parents and even some who are not like to dress their children.

My ex comes from a family as middle-class as it gets and most of his childhood photos have him looking like a sort of Midwestern version of Little Lord Fauntleroy.

I'm not a fan of this outfit as it's a bit too old fashioned for me and the shoes are a bit girly, I had shoes similar to George's when I was a toddler. But that seems to be the traditional way of dressing children in the BRF.

Princess Charlotte in a replica of the British royal christening gown:

George and Charlotte both look adorable. I especially like George's outfit.

In another 20 years, when Prince George is wearing his dad's old navy blue suits and red ties, we'll long for the days when he wore red Mickey Mouse shorts and frilly little smocked blouses!

And, I think we would all have been disappointed if Prince George had appeared yesterday in a pair of jeans, t-shirt and sneakers. Great for the backyard. Smile...

My kids were dressed up for special events...past that it was casual wear. They were pretty rough and tumble on a day to day basis no sense getting nice clothes destroyed.

I’ve said before the way George (or any child in the BRF) is dressed is just not my thing. You could transport him to the ’50 and he wouldn’t stand out. There are plenty of ways to dress a child that’s semi-formal (a little less formal than a suit and tie) that’s not this old-fashioned but more modern.
Bonpoint comes to mind, but there a many other brands.

In the 19th century royal little boys George's age wore lacy dresses They didn't wear trousers until they were five or so - it became a rite of passage to graduate from their skirts.

I don't know why, but I really like little boys dressed with old styled clothes, however, I absolutely dislike girls with old-fashioned clothes.

I'm not pointing out for the clothing style the celebrity kids wear which is sometimes silly. But little girls have dresses fashionable that don't look hideous, but "clean" and appropriate, for example, some clothes and style that Princess Elisabeth of Belgium and her brothers and sister wore, or also Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia clothes. I still remenber those baby and toddler clothes Leonor and Sofia wore when they were younger and I love them so much. I hope for Charlotte, Catherine has a similar style.

Thank you. It's not like there aren't other options but the old style look in order to appear elegant. This: the part in bold is my thought too but I thought I would never say this: George is a boy... and I am not a fan of some frills which would look more appropriate on a girl...
