Princess Charlotte and Mia Tindall: The one huge fashion difference between the young royal cousins

Princess Charlotte and Mia Tindall often steal the spotlight when out with their royal relatives.

Princess Charlotte, three, and Mia Tindall, four, have vastly different lives, despite both being grandchildren to Her Majesty the Queen.

The two youngsters are second cousins, as Princess Charlotte’s father Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, is the cousin of Mia’s mum Zara Tindall – who has just welcomed her second baby with her rugby player husband Mike Tindall.

Although all of the royal youngsters share a close bond – Prince George and cousin Savannah Phillips stole the limelight with their cheeky antics at Trooping the Colour this year, there are some vast differences between the children’s lives.

While Princess Charlotte and Mia, who doesn’t have a royal title, are both important members of the young royal family, there is one big difference between the two tots – the way their mothers dress them.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, only dresses her daughter in floral dresses and Zara chooses to dress her little girl in more comfortable outfits such as leggings.

Mia is frequently spotted wearing leggings and jeans when she is spotted out with her mother and father, usually at horse events.

Although this could be because she likes to run around playing on the lawn, it may also be due to the fact Mia isn’t an attendee of important royal engagements like her cousin Charlotte.

Meanwhile, childrenswear designer Rachel Riley, who has dressed Prince George, has a theory Catherine puts Charlotte in traditional dresses so the look stays classic.

Speaking to The Telegraph she said the choice of wardrobe is aimed at looking ‘timeless’ in official photographs.

Rachel said: “The reason why I design clothes that way is because if they wear very simple things, it’s about the child, and it’s timeless in that you can’t really date a specific photo or put them in something that seems out of date.”

Mia doesn’t have to appear in as many royal photographs as her cousin Charlotte, as the four year old doesn’t have a royal ranking.

Princess Charlotte is more frequently in the spotlight, due to the fact her father is second in line to the throne.

When the Cambridges attended the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy, Kate knew all eyes would be on her family so decided to dress her brood in very smart ensembles, despite the fact they were running around the grass playing all day.
