Prince George is wearing an outfit that is probably part of most British upperclass boys wardrobe. To have different taste in clothes is just fine but the derogatory comments about different cultures way of dressing their children is just ignorant. The outfit can be ordered online and even shipped to the US if needed.

Well, I love how they (with emphasis on they) dress George. He looks so dapper, the little man, and I wish the classic style of dressing children was more trendy here in Denmark. For quite some years hippieish sort of colourful clothing has been very popular here and I'm a bit with it. Having a cousin who is absolutely enamoured with everything Frozen and adores her Elsa tees, I'm not against character-themed clothing per se but I just think most of it looks terribly cheap and poor quality.

As for Charlotte, I reckon one only has to glance at e.g. Rachel Riley's section for girls to see how she will be dressed in the coming couple of years (and to me, it looks lovely)

Yes, its an upper class outfit for special occasions. As long as they don't take George to the playground or polo in such an outfit its ok. Its not my cup of tea, but then, I dont move in similar social circles.

If realistically most of his peers come from the same landed gentry set they will have the same style of dressing more or less so he will not know he dresses a bit differently than regular kids or get picked on for those Mary janes and rouched shirts. That is something anyway.

Was the blue trooping the colour outfit also by Rachel Riley? If so, I suspect her to design lookalike William outfits on purpose so Kate and William can't resist.

The Trooping the Colour outfit was the one worn by Charles in 1949 and William in 1984.

Maybe William couldn't find his 1984 red outfit and purchased one similar.

For Princess Anne's christening Charles wore several outfits including the blue and white outfit George wore to the Trooping the Colours. If Charles' baby pictures were in color we can see how often George and William copied or wore Charles' clothes.

FYI, there are pictures of Charles in dresses.

Charlotte may wear these if they are still available, along with the rompers and the short and blouse suits.

Fashion for the little royals Part 7: January 2015 -

George in not formal occasions has been dressed in overalls with polo shirts underneath, shorts with collared shirts with a sweater. All normal little boys outfits.

People would look at teenage boys wearing a tails to high school as weird in America. But that is totally normal and required when going to Eton.

I don't think the 2nd photo is from Anne's christening. The christening gown that we just saw in quite longer than what Anne is wearing. Also Princess Elizabeth is not wearing a hat. Philip wore a morning suit to Charles's so probably not wearing a uniform to Anne's. I think it's just a posed family photo. Or they had a change of outfits.

It's the same here, in the States. I was intrigued by 'Frozen', but after my preschoolers started showing up to school with all things related to that movie, I got over my initial curiosity. It seems like you can't step outside without seeing a child wearing one character or another. If it makes them happy, that's great, but like you, I think it looks cheap. I did check out Rachel Riley's section for girls, and I thought the outfits were gorgeous. It's too bad that they're way out of my price range. I would love to dress my kids in her clothing.

I bet Kate can not wait to doll her baby girl up in the precious little frocks :) for both her and Charlotte sake then I hope Charlotte is a little lady and not a tomboy as White tights and ruffled dresses will not fair very well.

Rachel Riley's girls dresses are lovely and particularly traditional. Lady Louise wore A LOT of Rachel Riley dresses as a toddler and recently.

This dress and cardigan are Rachel Riley as confirmed by the designer herself. This flag dress is Rachel Riley too. I am sure Charlotte will be dressed very similarly to Lady Louise. I can see Charlotte wearing dresses similar to this in public occasions.

One of my granddaughters is dress crazy...she has so many dresses from casual to fancy. She does wear pants/jeans/shorts but most often she's in a dress. So of course everyone knowing this buys her dresses lol

If she were into Elsa shirts ...we'd be buying her Elsa shirts for everyday at home wear.

That's how I see things done...kids have the everyday play wear which is the type you can run down to the grocery store in (as long as it's clean and has no holes)...and then there is the nicer going to town shopping wear...then the next step is the Church/formal event type wear.

I would not be suprised if some hand me downing occurred in that case... Sophie would have kept some out grown dresses as mothers do and since Louise is not rough on clothes probably they would still be perfectly wearable.

I think the British Royals keep everything by evidenced by the stuff put on display at the palaces. They pulled out Charles's outfit from the coronation a couple of years ago.

I liked this Lady Louise outfit so Charlotte could get this as a hand me down!

I can see Charlotte in a coat similar to Louise's here as well Trooping the Colour 2011. It's VERY tradtional and VERY British Royal Family! I can see Charlotte in something similar to this in the future.

Baby cue balls! Squee! Gabriella is going to be a blonde beauty and have very delicate features I can tell.. I wish an early photo of Grace existed so we can see a resemblance maybe.
