The little royals on tour: Shop their style

Prince George and Princess Charlotte could not be any more adorable with their knee socks and trad smocks, right?! If you’re a bit keen to dress your wee ones in crisp-yet-cute royal style before they’re old enough to laugh in the face of socks and shorts, then we’ve got the perfect style-stealing cheat sheet to get you started.

Tradition meets mischief

Let’s face it, when the Royals were in Canada, there was as much talk about little George’s high-five denial with PM Justin Trudeau and Princess Charlotte’s first public utterance as there was about the super cute mini-royals classic looks.

Perhaps you were following along marvelling at George’s amazing sock action? Maybe Kate and Will’s tiny peeps had you pondering dressing your own kids Royal style?

We’ve done the legwork for you, hunting down the often sold-out original pieces AND coming up with some great local/more frugal alternatives (because royal budget/international shipping = gasp!)
