We may have begrudgingly dug out the hand-knitted sweater (that was originally an older sibling’s until it shrunk in the wash) for our annual festive family photo, but it turns out it gives us more in common with the royals than we thought. The HELLO! office is cooing over the Cambridges’ adorable Christmas card – but there’s one detail that didn’t escape our (royal-ly good) eyesight.
Princess Charlotte is wearing a very cute navy cardigan over a corduroy skirt, and it’s the same knitwear that Prince George wore in April 2016 for the Queen’s birthday portrait with her grandchildren. It is a classic piece after all. In the photo George rocked the look with a neat white shirt, red shorts, and socks – looking every inch the future king as Princess Charlotte sat on her grandmother’s lap. In the latest photo, Charlotte doesn’t look resentful that she’s been given her older brother’s jumper in the slightest as she poses in between her parents. Awww!

The Queen surrounded by her two youngest grandchildren and her five great-grandchildren #Queenat90 This is the first in a series of official photographs released today to mark The Queen's 90th birthday. They were taken at Windsor Castle just after Easter by renowned portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The miniature royal is also sporting a very cheeky grin, which we can also hazard a guess has been passed down from George, too. And it looks like Louis is starting to develop the same playful side…
So perhaps in a couple of years, we can see Prince Louis in the same cardigan? Or maybe Meghan and Harry’s future child will be spotted in their cousin’s clothes? Either way, we love how the royals recycle their wardrobe. After all, we’ve seen Carole Middleton rocking some of Kate’s clothes, too. Now, how can we end up on the hand-me-down list? Could we start with Meghan’s royal tour wardrobe? Please…?
