For the royal family, wearing clothes means much more than simply putting on an outfit. When Kate Middleton decided to wear an outfit more than once, she shows her thrift side and moderation, which could be vital qualities in a future Queen. When Meghan Markle is wearing a brand like Outland Denim, she is not only promoting the brand, but she is also benefiting victims of sex trafficking.
When Prince George wears outfits similar to ones Prince William wore when he was young, it tells us a story of the British royal family, and it is taking us back to some prior happy moments.
Here are 15 outfits of young Prince George looking like his father, Prince William’s outfits when he was a young baby royal himself.
