Princess Charlotte's first day at school has been marked by the release of two pictures. The images were taken at Kensington Palace by her proud mother, the Duchess of Cambridge shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of kindergarten at the Willcocks Nursery School.
The young princess wore a classic boiled wool coat in a lovely rich burgundy by Amaia. The label's 'Razorbil coat' is from the current Autumn/Winter 2017 collection and retails for £120.00.
This was over a matching burgundy dress, and offset with oat hued ribbed tights also by Amaia (£12).
The ensemble was harmonized with colour coordinated accessories - Princess Charlotte wore her maroon Doña Carmen Mary Jane Shoes and a signature Amaia hair bow in a matching hue.
The look was enhanced with a lovely pink cable knit cashmere scarf from Marie Chantel.
The scarf is part of a gift set offered by the luxury children’s brand.
Princess Charlotte completed her first-day-of-school look with a pretty pink rucksack with a pony pattern. The design is by Cath Kidston and features a front pocket, two-way zipper, and adjustable padded shoulder straps in a polka dot pattern. The pony backpack appears to be sold out everywhere but the designer does offer a similar style on their website.
The Cambridge clan gathered with extended Royal family members today for the Queen's (Gan Gan) annual pre-Christmas luncheon at Buckingham Palace.
The lunch was a private family affair but photographers managed to get some snaps of the guests as they entered the gates of the Palace. Princess Charlotte was spotted en route to the Palace in the back seat of her parents' Range Rover accompanied by Nanny Maria and Prince George.
The young princess wore a traditional liberty print dress with burgundy trim around the collar and a coordinating cardigan. The set looks very similar but not identical to the one she wore as the family was leaving Canada last year, and repeated on Christmas Day 2016.
It's highly likely the two dresses are by the same designer which still remains unknown. Today the frock was teamed with a burgundy 'Starfruit' cardigan by Amaia (£42.00).
A Princess Charlotte outfit would not be complete without a signature Amaia hair bow!
Kensington Palace released a new portrait of the Cambridge family this morning which will serve as their official 2017 Christmas card. The photo was taken by Chris Jackson at Kensington Palace earlier this year.
The family of four sported coordinated blue outfits for the photo. Charlotte wore the same ensemble for the Royal tour of Germany, when the family landed in Berlin.
It consists of a floral-printed frock (designer unknown), Dona Carmen Granate 'Mercedita Suela' shoes and Amaia Kids Hair Bow.
The Cambridges' five-day royal visit to Poland and Germany came to a close on Friday afternoon when the family of four arrived at the tarmac of the Airbus facility in Hamburg following William & Kate's tour of the facility.
Princess Charlotte was in a repeat of the outfit she wore for Trooping the Colour in June.
To refresh your memories, the outfit consists of a pink spotted frock, offset with burgundy accessories which include her Amaia Kids Hair Bow and Dona Carmen Granate 'Mercedita Suela' shoes.
Here's some adorable footage of the young princess not happy that things didn't go her way.
But she did manage a final wave before boarding the plane bound for home.
The Cambridge family bade farewell to Poland this morning, and boarded a private plane bound for Berlin to begin the German leg of their five-day royal tour.
The two-year-old princess clambered up the plane steps.
On arrival in Berlin, Princess Charlotte received her first official posy - a mini version of her mother's bouquet. Charlotte looked delighted with her flowers.
The family of four were dressed in coordinating blue outfits for their arrival in the German capital. Duchess Kate wore a beautiful Catherine Walker coat in cornflower blue - a nod to the national flower of Germany.
The little princess wore a new blue floral print dress in a signature silhouette. The frock featured a white lace band across the chest, a peter pan collar and short puffball sleeves. We suspect this is another bespoke piece.
We saw the return of her Dona Carmen Granate 'Mercedita Suela' shoes which Charlotte wore twice during the Canadian royal tour last Fall. We assume she now wears the shoes in a larger size.
Charlotte's fringe was pulled back with her usual Amaia Kids Hair Bow, this one a size medium in blue.
The Royal Tour is underway! The Cambridge family touched down in Warsaw this afternoon to embark on a five-day visit to Poland and Germany.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte peeked through the jet window prior to disembarking.
It is their second tour abroad as a family of four following their visit to Canada last September.
The Cambridge clan exhibited perfect royal style in their coordinating outfits. Like her mother, Princess Charlotte engaged in fashion diplomacy, wearing Poland’s national colors of red and white.
She wore a red/white liberty print dress fashioned with buttons down the top half of the back and a inset waistband trimmed with white piping. It also has a peter pan collar and short puffed sleeves. The piece gets added to the expanding list of Charlotte's unidentified dresses. We infer the Duchess of Cambridge commissions a dressmaker for all of these, as they've each featured very similar silhouettes and details.
On her feet she wore a pair of red shoes with her Condor Purl Cuff Anklet Socks.
According People magazine. the shoes are vintage and were seen on Prince Harry when he was a toddler.
As usual, Charlotte's fringe was pulled back with an Amaia Kids Hair Bow, this one in red.
Following the brief welcome at the airport, the young royals where escorted to Belweder Palace in Warsaw, where they will stay with their parents and Spanish nanny Maria Borrallo.
Charlotte and George are not scheduled to participate in any events during the tour, however we can expect to see them at all public airport arrivals and departures.
Princess Charlotte joined her extended royal family today on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s official birthday celebration.
This was her second appearance on the iconic frontage of the London landmark, following last year's debut.
The whole family had gathered to watch the traditional Trooping the Color military fly-past.
Princess Charlotte wore a spot print dress in a signature smock style, which was the same colour as her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate's outfit.
The pink spotted frock featured puff sleeves and a frilly collar. The brand/designer of Charlotte's dress is currently unknown.
The dress was complemented with familiar burgundy accessories. She sported her Amaia Kids Small Hair Bow and Dona Carmen Granate 'Mercedita Suela' shoes with white scallop-trim socks (unidentified).
You may recall Charlotte wore these accessories with her "Farewell Canada" outfit in October 2016 but we assume she now wears the shoes in a larger size.
There are simply too many adorable photos to share on this blog! I recommend you check out Zimbio's collection of images from today's outing.
Princess Charlotte and Prince George stole the limelight as they served as pageboy and flower girl for their Aunt Pippa's wedding.
The bridesmaids and pageboys were dressed in bespoke commissions from Pepe & Co. - a Spanish clothing company specializing in childrenswear. Charlotte looked angelic in a cream ruffled cap-sleeved flower girl dress featuring a blush bow sash over cream tights with beige buckled shoes.
The design was based on this £280 frock from the brand's "Celebration" collection.
On the site you can also find the cream Ceremony Pantyhose (£10).
The dress was coordinated with nude Mary Jane shoes by Papouelli. The British company specializes in children's footwear, and the bridesmaid's wore the 'Angelica' style. The pretty strap shoe has a grosgrain trim and a popper button fastener. Price starts from £69.00.
Prince George's pageboy outfit (£374) is also available to purchase from the Pepe & Co boutique:
The Duchess of Cambridge was on hand to guide the young bridal party into the church ahead of the ceremony.
She also gave them a gentle reminder to be on their best behavior.

And finally, congratulations to Mr and Mrs Matthews!
In celebration of her 2nd birthday tomorrow, Kensington Palace released this photo of Princess Charlotte taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge at Anmer Hall.
The birthday girl is wearing a yellow knit cardigan from UK department store John Lewis. The John Lewis Baby Luxury Sheep Cardigan has now completely sold out on the retailer’s website, but a coordinating dress, currently reduced to £10, is still available in some sizes.
The bright knit cardigan was coupled with a JoJo Maman Bebe Peter Pan Long sleeve top in the 'Denim Ditsy Floral' print (£12.00). The top is also available as a bodysuit in smaller sizes (up to 3 years), but we believe she's wearing the top.
Charlotte has her fringe clipped back with a navy blue Amaia Kids grosgrain hair bow.
The royal tot has grown significantly since we last saw her over 5 months ago on Christmas Day! The photo of HRH is also the first of 2017. Our next chance to see Princess Charlotte will come in May when she attends her Aunt Pippa's wedding.
Kensington Palace released an official statement regarding the wedding of Princess Charlotte's aunt, Pippa Middleton, who will be marrying James Matthews on 20 May at St Mark's Church, Englefield.
They revealed Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be part of the wedding party before confirming William, Kate and Harry's attendance on the day.
