Kate Middleton, 36, and Prince William, 36 joined their three children Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, seven months in their annual Christmas photograph. It was one of the few pictures of Prince Louis who has rarely been seen in public since his birth earlier this year. His outfit choice of tights conflicted many royal fans, while others loved Prince George’s first appearance in trousers. But, the Cambridge’s have failed to do something which Princess Diana often did with her two sons.
The royal chose to dress Prince William and Prince George in matching outfits when out at events during their childhood.
William and Harry were often spotted together in matching shorts and jumpers, as well as matching pea coats and smart outfits.
Kate and William, however, have avoided dressing their children in matching outfits, allowing them to dress differently.
However, as Prince Louis gets older, we could see some of his outfits begin to resemble his brother’s.
During the royal tours, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were spotted in similar coloured outfits to match their parents, both being clad in blue in Canada, or both in pink and purple hues in Germany.
Prince Harry referenced the matching outfits during the ITV documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.
“I genuinely think she got satisfaction out of dressing myself and William up in the most bizarre outfits – normally matching,” he said.
Harry, who is expecting his first child with his wife Meghan Markle, also joked: “I’m sure as hell am going to dress my kids up the same way”.
