Why not? The red will stand out in the pictures with most everyone of the guys in dark suits. We have already seen him in a lot of blue outfits.

There are so many pictures of William as a child, it would be very difficult to dress George in anything that isn't similar to something William wore at some point. George was wearing a white shirt and red shorts, pretty common for kids clothes. I will say that I avoided dressing my kids in white anything.


The shoes are a little different than most kids would wear but George was going to a formal event with the queen. I won't click on paparazzi photos but I am sure George wears play shoes most of the time.

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.

George looks adorable. Charlotte's gown is exquisite.

Absolutely adorable outfit on George. Wonderful that he was wearing similar to his father. He looks great in red, most little boys do.

The way they dress him is a little silly but the shoes are what is the real problem for me. As he's gotten older the clothes on him don't look as silly.

William and Harry wore the leather Mary Janes too. Their probably easier to get on a little kid than a lace up Oxford

Little George's clothes don't seem to fit him as well as William's did in the 1984 photos.

Is George's outfit a hand-me-down?

Fashion for the little royals Part 7: January 2015 -

I believe it's new. George's shorts are bagger than 1984 William and the George's top is more blousier. William is a couple months older than George is when Harry was born. He was 2 yrs and almost 3 months while George has a couple weeks to go for 2 yrs.

So William might be a bit bigger than George is now or George is in between sizes and they when with the bigger size so he grows into it

the outfit George was wearing, though very similar to William's, is new:

At first I thought it had been modified, but then I changed my mind...

I have to say it: I don't like this way of dressing children... too old fashioned and IMO not flattering for the kid...

I like it for the occasions where he's at formal royal events- it's almost like a costume, or a uniform. (I think the Duchess's coat dresses are also her working uniform)

Maybe it's a good way to help distinguish the role from every day life. We see him dressed in more casual clothes when he's out playing.

I have to disagree with you. George's outfit is perfect for a little boy his age. He looks very comfortable, and very sweet. Beats what kids at my preschool are wearing, that's for sure. Classy, and elegant clothing never goes out of fashion, and what George is wearing will be appropriate for his age-group ten years from now as well.

Well, different tastes and different opinions... But I have enough of old styled clothes... especially on a little boy...

The Japanese and European Royal families have always had a very distinctive manner of dressing their children. The Scandinavian and Benelux Royals are not quite as throwback as the Brits, but even so.

You will never see any Royal child dressed similar to Maddox Jolie-Pitt or Suri Cruise....never.

And thank heaven for that! Hopefully the trends for more conservative children's clothing will make a comeback soon. I'm tired of children being dressed like advertisements for this or that movie/character/superhero.

Well, baby and infant clothes were intended to be soft and comfortable. You will notice that the little red shorts button onto the shirt. No elastic to squeeze the stomach. The "old-fashioned" styles allowed the little one to be comfortable and have freedom of movement. It also was considerate of their soft skin. I love seeing little ones dressed in this way. To me, it's so much more sensible than dressing them in the latest styles...as though they are just short adults. When I was a child, we were dressed in this style and my children and grandchildren as well. I like to see them looking sweetly childlike and physically free. And, Princess Estelle is another one who is dressed like a child.

The way she dresses George is not "old-fashioned" it is "classic" and the way royals have always dressed their children for public occasions. There are many photos of George dressed in play clothes that look like other toddlers when he is in the park are at a playground. The Duchess dresses her son appropriately for the occasion, in my opinion.

And, I agree with both you and MoonMaiden. I dislike seeing children dressed like little rock stars or some Disney character. In a way, it seems disrespectful of the child. Let them be children.

I was just stating my opinion (which I'm entitled to). My post was not meant to be worded in a factual way, as I did say "for me". We all have different opinions - what's old fashioned to me may be classic for you, and what's classic for me may be old fashioned for you.

I have seen a number of photos of George in casual wear. I know that the more formal clothes he wears are not his usual, everyday outfits. It is the same with Lady Louise Windsor, her casual wear is very different to her formal wear.

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
