Why doesn’t Princess Charlotte ever wear trousers? Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s fashion decision explored
KATE Middleton always ensures Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis look immaculate.
When Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton always ensures Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis are dressed well when out in public.
The mum of three has a certain type of preference when it comes to what they wear, with Prince George always wearing shorts, and Princess Charlotte always wearing dresses, with cute socks or tights.
But while there are no royal rules about what she wears, why isn’t Princess Charlotte ever seen wearing comfy leggings or casual trousers?
Childrenswear designer Rachel Riley, who has dressed Prince George, has a theory that the Duchess chooses to put Charlotte in traditional dresses so that 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about the child, and it’s timeless in that you can’t really date a specific photo or put them in something that seems out of date.”
Woman and Home reports Kate – birth name Catherine – puts Charlotte in traditional ‘old-fashioned’ outfits for official occasions because it marks the formality of the event.
George and Charlotte also have their own wardrobe of clothes for royal events, separate from their day-to-day outfits.
This means perhaps Charlotte does wear casual wear like leggings, but only during family time and not out in public.
