He’s known for his adorable trademark shorts, but Prince George finally got to wear long trousers today for the first time in an official portrait.

The young royal, five, was pictured perched on a tree trunk in woodland at Anmer Hall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Norfolk home in a gorgeous new family portrait released for Christmas.

The youngster wore a pair of blue-grey chinos tucked into wellies for the snap, as he playfully leaned on one leg, holding his father Prince William’s shoulder’s for support.

It was the first time George has worn long trousers for an official portrait, or even been seen in them publicly, aside from when he acted as a Page Boy for Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie’s weddings.

George and his fellow pageboys wore miniature versions of the Blues and Royals frockcoat, similar to the uniforms worn by Harry and William on the big day, complete with long trousers.

Since he’s been old enough to walk, George has worn shorts in all the official portraits taken to mark milestones such as his birthday or the Queen’s 90th birthday.

He’s also been wearing shorts in pictures taken in his school uniform, and when he’s accompanied his parents on overseas tours to Poland, Germany and Canada.

Previously, MailOnline’s etiquette William Hanson told Femail that Kate put her son exclusively in shorts as it’s an aristocratic way to dress.

He claimed that shorts on young boys are, in fact, a silent British class marker and trousers are deemed ‘suburban’, which no self-respecting royal would want to be considered.

The first time he was seen publicly in long trousers was when he wore a miniature version of the Blues and Royals uniform for Prince Harry and Meghan Markles wedding in May

‘The Duchess of Cambridge has to dress her own children and find a balance between royal tradition and heritage and more proletariat customs, such as the “suburban” habit of making young boys wear trousers,’ he explained.

‘Although I don’t really think that the sartorial rule of shorts for young boys would be a new one for Catherine.

‘I would suspect that her own mother and mother’s friends knew this – as more well-heeled middle class mothers do – and dressed their own boys accordingly.’

Princess Charlotte, three, also made a fashion statement in the newly released image, wearing a navy blue cardigan that belonged to her five-year-old brother Prince George.

The £48 knitted number by royal favourite Fina Ejerique was seen on George in the family portrait released to celebrate his grandmother the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016.

Tomboy Charlotte also wore the cardigan in a sweet photo of her kissing newborn Prince Louis shortly after his birth this year.

The button down top features a white nordic pattern around the neckline.

The Cambridge photo shows the Duchess of Cambridge cradling baby Louis – who is now almost eight months old – as she rests against a tree trunk in woodland at their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk with the Duke of Cambridge.
