If you have older siblings, chances are that you’ve been on the receiving end of a hand-me-down. It’s just part of the gig, and apparently even being a member of the royal family doesn’t change that. Royal sibs Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis have all shared before (remember their baptism gown?), but Charlotte snagged one of George’s fashion staples for their family’s Christmas card this year. The 3-year-old wore a $60 navy Fina Ejerique cardigan that definitely came from her brother’s closet.
It’s not the first time Charlotte’s worn it. After Prince Louis was born, Kensington Palace released a photo of the new big sister wearing (you guessed it) George’s cardigan. Hate to say it, George, but now that it’s been taken twice, that cardigan might be Charlotte’s…for good.
While his sister was wearing his clothes, George opted for a rare fashion change of his own—the tot ditched shorts in favor of pants. Usually George is dressed in shorts in a “very English” move that is supposed to last until he’s 8, according to People. “It is considered very suburban for a little boy to be in long trousers when he is just a little boy,” a royal commenter said.
Apparently, the times are changing.
