Kate Middleton has always had a real knack for dressing her kids. She’s a big
fan of hand-me-downs, which means that 8-year-old Prince George, 6-year-old Princess Charlotte, and 3-year-old Prince Louis tend to have excellent clothes that stand the test of time. Which is especially helpful when trying to dress kids for the winter season. Princess Charlotte, much like her mother, has some of the cutest sweaters and coats to keep her warm in those cold months.
As the only daughter of the Duchess of Cambridge and, let’s never forget, the oldest granddaughter of the late Princess Diana, little Princess Charlotte certainly has fashion in her bloodstream. That being said, Princess Charlotte’s wardrobe is all about function as well as form. I mean, she’s a small child after all. So her winter outfits need to work for the life of a little girl who wants to run and play, potentially in the snow if the UK gets a bit of the white stuff. Or if the family
heads out for a ski holiday in the French Alps as they’ve been known to do.
Regardless of what Princess Charlotte might be doing, she always has some amazing little outfit to wear for the occasion. And we love to see it.
Just Like The Queen

What does a little girl wear to a Christmas luncheon at Buckingham Palace? When she’s Princess Charlotte, she goes for a ruffled blouse under a festive red cardigan. And a look of sleepy annoyance from the back seat of her parents’ car.
First Day Of School Chic
Those tights. Those red Mary Janes. That red swing coat topped with a cream scarf. Everything about
Princess Charlotte’s first day of nursery school photo, taken by mom Kate Middleton in January 2018, is adorable. Especially her proud smile. Family Sweater Weather
Princess Charlotte joined her family at Anmer Hall, their country home in Norfolk County, for their annual

Sure, this outfit was not really her choice. Thomas’s Battersea School in London has a set uniform, a version of which is also worn by her older brother Prince George. But Princess Charlotte’s version had a cardigan, of course, and she wore a cute little ponytail. And it just... works.

celebrate Mother’s Day in 2020, Princess Charlotte jumped on her mom’s back for a piggy-back race against Prince William and Prince George. I don’t know who won but if it was a fashion race, Princess Charlotte’s sweater won for sure. Roasting Marshmallows
