Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s Clothes

One of Kate’s favorite children’s clothing designers is Rachel Riley. Since George’s birth, we have seen him and little Charlotte dressed in Rachel Riley’s traditional British clothing. And because I love looking at baby clothes, I wanted to put this post together with some examples of the favorite royal children’s clothing designer.

First off, here are some really sweet pajamas and nighttime onesies. Some of the pajamas are on sale right now to make way for Spring clothes.

At 18 months old, I bet Charlotte wears something like this to bed. I think it is really sweet and feminine.

I like the Scotty dogs on this onesie.

When Kate dressed George as a baby he wore a sweater by Rachel Riley that had this British soldiers pattern on it. Never too early to get George interested in the military, right? 🙂

When George met President and First Lady Obama he wore traditional gingham pajamas. These pajamas are stripes but they are a very similar style.

And they come in pink, too!

Rachel Riley also makes some plaid pajamas which would be perfect if George went to Balmoral and visited his great-Granny in Scotland. 🙂

Now, for a baby shower gift, I think one of these onesies with the matching blanket would make a really sweet gift.

And these dresses are the style that Kate prefers when she dresses Charlotte. Usually Kate would put a white cardigan over a dress like this.

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=340417515&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

This dress reminds me of the ones that the queen and her sister wore when they were little girls during King George’s reign.

This is a nice little sweater that is unisex. Charlotte has actually been seen wearing sweaters that are hand me downs from when George was a baby.

I think this may be one of my favorite dresses by Rachel Riley. It is just so sweet.

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=511234316&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Kate likes to dress George the way Diana dressed William when he was a little boy which typically means a shirt, sweater, and shorts. Much has been said lately about how George always wears shorts, even on Christmas day during the winter. What I have read is that this is a traditional, upper class way of dressing boys. I think Kate wants to keep George in shorts until he is 8 years old or so. However, I have also seen pictures of William and Harry as small boys wearing long trousers so I am not entirely convinced this is the concrete rule that some people have made it out to be. I have known boys who just prefer wearing shorts. Maybe George likes wearing shorts?

Here are some of the simple shorts that Kate likes to dress George in.

Christmas Gift Ideas Part 3: Royal Children and Their Favorite Things

In celebration of the holiday season, I have put together a little list of some of the favorite clothes and toys of royal children from around the world to help inspire any of my readers who may be shopping for little princes and princesses themselves. I don’t have children of my own yet, but who doesn’t love to look at little kids’ clothes and toys? They’re adorable! 🙂 Enjoy!

  1. Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge’s Clothes

Since Prince George was just an infant, his mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, has made it clear that Rachel Riley’s clothes are her favorite choice in children’s fashion. Here is a collection of some Rachel Riley clothes that are available right now that are either exactly what George and Charlotte have worn or similar.

Prince George Sailor

Prince George wore a cute pair of Rachel Riley sailor dungarees on his very first royal tour to Australia with his parents. The dungarees are currently available in two colors in limited sizes. This light blue:

large

Which can be found here:

And the same dark blue pair that George wore.

When George was a little baby he would often wear onesies like this one:

Anchor infant

Which can be found here:

Princess Charlotte white

Unfortunately, we have only seen two official portraits of Princess Charlotte. One was the day of her christening, and the other was when she was first brought home from the hospital. Here is a similar all white baby outfit that I think is really cute.

George has been photographed wearing lots of cardigans like this one which I love. The little dogs on it are really cute and the red color would be great for the holidays.

Obviously we do not know what Charlotte will be wearing for her very first Christmas but if I can make a prediction I would say that something like this little sweater would be a safe bet. It has been reported that Kate will not dress Charlotte in a dress until she is one year old, which is a royal tradition. I like the little deer on this sweater. They are not specifically Santa’s reindeer but I think it kind of looks that way.

However, if Kate changes her mind there are lots of really cute Rachel Riley dresses available. And if you wanted to get your little princess one here is a nice selection. This pretty blue dress has cute smocking on the front.

I like this navy blue dress as well. It would look cute with white bows in a little girl’s hair.

This velvet trim tweed skating coat is for older little girls but I can imagine Charlotte wearing this in the next year or two. Princess Estelle of Sweden wears pretty little coats like this all the time. It has a bit of a classic, Victorian feel to it. Very pretty.

I also love this blue dress and little white hearts.

This is another pretty little outfit I would love to see Charlotte wear. It has a cute bunny pattern and small polka dots.

Prince George Soldiers Sweater

For a photo shoot last year, Prince George wore a sweater vest by Rachel Riley with a cute little soldier pattern on it. That sweater does not seem to be available anymore. However, Rachel Riley did make a pair of dungarees with a similar pattern.

Soldier

You can find them here:

Rachel Riley has a beautiful red tartan dress available this season. This is the type of dress I hope to see on Charlotte as she grows older. I think all little girls have worn a tartan dress during the holidays at some point in their lives so it seems to be a fashion right of passage.

And finally, although there is no way for us to know what kind of pajamas George will be wearing on Christmas morning I like these British soldier patterned Rachel Riley pjs. It seems like something Kate would dress George in.

2. Queen Elizabeth’s Doll Pram

When it comes to toys, I have found some inspiration in museum exhibits, since Royals tend to use the same types of toys for generations within their family. Royalty is all about maintaining tradition, after all. In particular, I discovered some heartwarming pictures of a little display of Queen Elizabeth II’s dolls. You can see a curator arranging the display in the picture below.

Queen Elizabeth's Dolls and Pram

The dolls are beautiful. But I especially love the little traditional English pram that Elizabeth used for her dolls. You can see the little Princess Elizabeth using the tiny wicker doll pram in the picture below.

Queen Elizabeth with Pram

Considering how traditional Prince William and Kate seem to be I have no doubt that when it comes the time to purchase big kid toys for Princess Charlotte the will probably buy her a pram to go with her dolls. Doll prams can be in the thousands of dollars, almost as much as real baby prams as a matter of fact, but I have managed to find some really sweet and affordable doll prams for under $100 each. Starting with this sweet pink doll pram from Pottery Barn website.

I also love this pink pram that is a 3 in 1 doll pram, carrier, and stroller for $59.99. Really cute and fun.

And although a lot of little girls will probably love the pink options I found, the most traditional or ‘authentic’ choice would probably be this navy blue version since most royal prams have been navy blue for many generations.

For Princess Charlotte’s christening the little princess was strolled to the christening in the same pram that Queen Elizabeth used for two of her sons. You can see it is a dark navy blue like the toy I linked to above.

Princess Charlotte's Christening

And here is another cute dark blue options. But this one is a nice compromise because it has pink trim and what looks like a little diaper bag. I really like the swirly handles on this one. It looks like fun! And the best part is it’s just $49.99, making it the least expensive one I found.

I kept help but finish this section of the article with one of my favorite pictures of Diana, Princess of Wales as a child in her pram. It was probably used in the Spencer family for years. It looks like an antique. I can’t think of anything more representative of British royal childhood than this.

Princess Diana Pram

3. Danish Julekalender ( Yule Calendar) and gavekalender (Gift Calendar)

The Danish royal family-and Danish people in general- have picked up on the German tradition of advent calendars, or Yule Calendars as they are called in Denmark. The most popular being Gift Calendars, advent calendars with little drawers or boxes with room for 24 little presents. The presents are normally little candies or chocolate but some boxes are big enough for a tiny yo-yo or, ball, or really little stuffed animal. If you buy a good quality advent calendar they can be used for many years and many are so pretty they became an essential element in your Christmas decorations. I just bought a brand new wooden German advent calendar this year and I plan on putting it out every year as a new tradition.

Here are some really pretty gift calendars that I like. Some of the really collectible ones by places like Erzgbirge Palace can be $700 be these are much more affordable. The first one is in the shape of a Christmas tree and the individual boxes are deep enough for a nice sized treat each day.

This wooden advent calendar has a really pretty fireside scene on it. I like the fact that it has little boxes inside that are long enough for candy canes.

And last but not least, this advent calendar is special because it’s actually musical so each day when you open a new door it plays a song. What kid wouldn’t love that?

4. Norwegian Sweaters

Like other Scandinavian royal families, the Norwegian royals know a thing or two about keeping warm during the winter. But more than any other realm, Norway has a reputation for having iconic knitwear. The Norwegian royals have often been seen wearing “Dale of Norway” sweaters and hats and I found a few nifty examples.

Norwegian Christmas

This pink child’s sweater has the traditional Norwegian pattern knitted on the front. It is by Dale of Norway, which is a company that specializes in authentic hand knitted Norwegian designs. It can be really expensive but I found a few kids’ sweaters on Zappos.com that are more affordable. This one also comes in a few other colors like red and black.

And here is another sweater in black and white. I like that it has a traditional, folk pattern and color neckline. Very stylish.

Dale of Norway also makes some really neat hats. Here are a few examples. This one comes in black with a white pattern (as you can see in the picture) but you can also choose to buy one that is white with the pattern in black.

This example is navy blue and white. It’s a traditional knitted pattern that Dale of Norway has been making since the 1950s.

And one final example. I like that the hats are unisex designs. Princess Mette-Marit loves hats like these.

I hope that all of my fellow American have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow and that everyone travels safely!

Royal Children’s Back to School Fashion-Part Two

Today is the Sunday of tax free weekend where I live in Tennessee. Every year this is when hoards of people flock to the mall to buy back to school clothes, so I thought this would be a good time to take a look back at how royal kids from around the world dress on their first day at school. In part one, I talked about the royal children of Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, and the Netherlands. Now I will take a look at some other royal kids starting with the Swedish royal family.

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel brought their pretty little girl, Princess Estelle, to her first day of preschool last year. Here’s the picture:

Embed from Getty Images

Princess Estelle always looks so happy in all of the pictures I see of her and her parents obviously adore her. I think she is probably one of the most confident and happy royal children. I love seeing pictures of her.

As a side note, do you guys see how similar Princess Victoria’s blazer is to the beloved blazer by Zara the Duchess of Cambridge loves to wear? Take a look:

Embed from Getty Images

They’re both dark blue blazers with large gold buttons. They have a nautical/military look to them and both royal women paired their blazers with jeans and wore their hair pulled back. It must be a popular royal look. 🙂 I am not sure if Victoria’s blazer is Zara as well, but Kate’s definitely is so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was. Kate really loves Zara and has worn the brand many times before and after her marriage. Here is a similar Zara blazer. It is not the same one Kate wears because it sold out (anything Kate wears sells out within 24 hours!). But it has the same structure, navy blue color, and large gold buttons on the backs of the sleeves. Moms deserve to treat themselves to a nice outfit to bring their kids to their first day of school, too. Right ladies? 😉

The royal family of Japan (like the Spanish royals) send their children to private schools where they have to wear uniforms. Here are some pictures of Japanese royal children on their first day of school.I can’t believe how grown up Princess Aiko is. And I feel like Prince Hisahito was born just yesterday!

Not every royal family has a tradition of taking pictures of their kids’ first day of school but the British royal family has some great pictures of these events. Most of the current generation of royal children are too young to be in school (like the Cambridge’s kids and Zara Tindall’s children) but here is a look back on British royals and their first day from the previous generation.
This is a sweet picture of Prince William on his first day of nursery school. He reminds me so much of Prince George! I imagine this is what George will look like on his first day in a year or two.

I cannot get over how adorable Harry is in this picture from 1989. He always had such a mischievous personality. I bet he kept Diana on her toes. Love the way Diana is looking at her boys. She seems so proud.
Embed from Getty Images
Here is a picture of Princess Eugenie with her mom and dad, the Duke and Duchess of York. I never realized how much Eugenie looks like her dad but boy she does take after him.
Embed from Getty Images
And then there is this picture of Prince William on his first day at St. Andrews University in 2001. I had such a crush on him during this time, you guys. I was 11 years old. 🙂 William’s casual style really hasn’t changed all that much since this picture was taken. This is pretty much the way he dresses when he is not participating in royal events or official functions. He’s a laid back guy.
Embed from Getty Images
And it looks like Ralph Lauren is still making this same style of pullover to this very day, too:

 

UPDATE! January 6th, 2016

Today is the day that little Prince George of Cambridge began his school career at a small Montessori school near the Duke and Duchess’s home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk. Instead of inviting photographers to watch George enter the preschool, William and Kate opted to share two pictures of George’s first day via social media. Here they are!

Prince George first day 1

George is pictured standing in front of a large mural that is painted on the side of the tiny school. There are only about 30 students who attend in total.

Prince George first day 2

I think he looks like a mix of both William and Kate. Adorable! 🙂

I hope that you enjoyed these posts as a look back on how royal kids dress on their first day of school. If you have kids or are getting ready to go back to school yourself, good luck and have fun!
Cheers,

Royal Children’s Back to School Fashion-Part One

Have you ever wondered how royal children from around the world dress for the first day of school? Right about now stores will be full of busy parents and kids shopping for back to school clothes. In honor of the hustle and bustle of the new school year, I wanted to write a post that showed off royal back to school fashion from various European royal houses. Enjoy!

Firstly, let’s look at this sweet picture of Princess Leonor giving her daddy a kiss on her first day of school in 2008. Her mom and dad are King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain, so that means that this cute little girl is going to grow up to be the queen of Spain.

She may be a little princess, but Leonor is just like any other little girl on her first day of school. Take a look at her bright pink backpack. I imagine that she probably picked it out herself.

Like many royal children, the royal princesses of Spain have to wear uniforms to school so the only way they can express their style is through their backpacks. One year later, Leonor’s little sister, Princess Sofia, chose a bright blue Hello Kitty rolling backpack/mini suitcase. Sofia’s a girl after my own heart. I always loved Hello Kitty when I was little. Too cute!

I know they are for kids but I am tempted to get one for myself. 🙂 This one has a matching lunchbox!


Then, we have the Belgian royal children. And there are quite a few of them to talk about. Here is a picture of Prince Gabriel, Prince Emmanuel, and Princess Elisabeth (left to right) on their first day of school in 2008:

I like how they coordinated the kids’ outfits to match one each other. Here is the family on another first day of school in 2011, this time Princess Eleonore joined them as well:

I have a feeling that Princess Elisabeth is going to grow up to be a very fashionable princess. As the years go by she seems to be taking more interest in her clothing. She has inherited her mom’s love of bright colors like pink, orange, and mint green. She is 13 years old now, and by the time she is 16 I think she will really blossom. Take a look at her first day of school in 2013:

After searching for a while I found the same shoes she is wearing in the picture, they are Kenneth Cole Reaction and can be found here:

And here is a picture of her from her first day of school last year. I really think this outfit is such a sweet and age appropriate way for a 12 year old to dress. I especially love the scarf. I wish all 12 year old girls dressed like this:

I am not sure who designed Princess Elisabeth’s scarf, but there is a cool company called Krisp (based in London, England) that makes pretty accessories for girls and women. They have scarves in bright colors in a style that is similar to what Elisabeth wears. This scarf that I am sharing a link for is my favorite. I really like the tie dye look it has plus the tassels, and the pastel colors remind me of Elisabeth’s scarf:

Then, we have the Norwegian royal children. Princess Ingrid Alexandra in 2010:

And with her brother, Prince Sverre Magnus, on his first day of school in 2011:

As you can see Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway tends to favor a minimalist style of dress and neutral colors. I think that she also prefers to dress her children in this way. Out of all of the royal brides, she had the most simple and understated wedding gown with no lace, beads, or embellishments. So Mette-Marit has decided to dress her children simply as well in keeping with her taste. It looks to me like she probably dresses her kids in something similar to Gap Kids. Take a look at some of these ideas as an example:

And maybe Tommy Hilfiger for kids too:

I think that Mette-Marit probably likes Nautica as well:

Next we have the Danish royal family. Here is Prince Christian on his first day of nursery school in 2007:

He is so adorable and looks so little in this picture. You can also see that Princess Mary is pregnant with Christian’s little sister. I think his shoes are very cute. They look like leather Oxfords. Here is a pair similar to what Christian wore. Again, these are Kenneth Cole Reaction, just like Princess Elisabeth of Belgium:

Here is a more recent picture of Christian from his first day of school in 2011:

And here is a picture of his little sister, Princess Isabella, on her first day in 2013:

Christian and Isabella have younger siblings as well, the twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine seen here in a photocall this year on July 25:

Judging from Princess Isabella’s mischievous face in the picture above it looks to me like Princess Mary and Prince Frederick have their hands full. 🙂

All little princesses should have cute Mary Janes like these, also by Kenneth Cole Reaction:

And a pretty dress like the one Princess Josephine is wearing to go with it, This dress is by Nautica:

And prince Vincent looks adorable in his plaid shirt kind of like this one from Gap kids:

Finally, I would like to end this post with some pictures of the Dutch royal family. Take a look at Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander’s adorable kids in 2009. I love Princess Alexia’s denim dress:

I like this denim dress with white embroidery on the bottom by Bonnie Jean:

And here they are again in 2011. It is so sweet how the girls hold hands. And their bow head bands are adorable, too:

I don’t have kids myself yet. But if I ever have a girl I am going to get her a million bows, one for every outfit. Kind of like these whimsical interchangeable headbands. They look like fun! 🙂
