Princess Charlotte and Prince George stole the limelight as they served as pageboy and bridesmaid for their Uncle Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding.
The royal tots were two of 10 children in the bridal party.
Charlotte looked angelic in her pretty bridesmaid dress. Meghan commissioned her bridal dress designer Clare Waight Keller to also design the six young Bridesmaids’ dresses in the Givenchy Haute Couture Atelier in Paris. The dresses were created to have the same timeless purity as Meghan's dress. Each dress is sculpted in Ivory silk Radzimir, and is high-waisted with short puff sleeves and hand finished with a double silk ribbon detail tied at the back in a bow. The Bridesmaids’ dresses include pockets and pleated skirts to create a relaxed and luxurious silhouette.
The Bridesmaids wore white leather Aquazurra shoes; each pair monogrammed with the Bridesmaids initials, and the wedding date. The shoes were a gift from Ms. Markle to the young ladies as a keepsake of the special day.
The bridesmaids each had flower crowns selected by Prince Harry and Meghan, which have been designed by florist Philippa Craddock. The Bridesmaids' flowers replicated the flowers used in the bridal bouquet.
The four Pages wore a miniature version of the Blues and Royals frockcoat. The uniform draws its insignia from the Blues and Royals, which is an old Regiment of The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Both were also wearing Blues and Royals frockcoats for the Wedding Day.
Charlotte appeared to enjoy the day.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!
Royal recycle! Princess Charlotte wears a hand-me-down from big brother George for first photo with Prince Louis
Kensington Palace spoiled us today with a couple of official photos of Prince Louis. The first was a portrait of the little royal tot taken by his mother, The Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace on 26th April, 3 days after his birth.
The second photo shows the infant prince with big sister Charlotte in a photo taken on the princess' third birthday on 2nd May. The lovely images were accompanied by the following statement from proud patarents William and Kate:
The Duke and Duchess would like to thank members of the public for their kind messages following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.
Prince George did not feature in the photos however Princess Charlotte was in one of his hand-me-downs. Charlotte wore a navy cardigan as seen on George in the Queen’s 90th Birthday portrait taken by Annie Leibovitz in April 2016.
The piece is by Spanish brand, Fina Ejerique.
It's difficult to say for certain but it appears that Charlotte also wore a taupe corduroy pinafore dress and a collared liberty print top. Tiegen from The Cambridges blog kindly let me know it is an old season piece by Amaia Kids.
The outfit was finished with a pair of Amaia Kids navy ribbed tights.
Princess Charlotte meets baby brother for the first time and charms the crowd with royal wave and blue floral dress
It was an exciting day for Princess Charlotte and her older brother Prince George today as they arrived at St. Mary's Hospital with their dad to meet their new baby brother.
The young princess charmed the crowds with her adorable royal wave and her smocked blue floral dress, while Prince George looked pensive in his school uniform.
Princess Charlotte wore a Little Alice London 'Periwinkle' dress that cost ₤45 and was designed by an old school friend of the Duchess of Cambridge. The brand is owned by Alice Avenel, a friend of Kate Middleton's from Marlborough College. Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as Pippa Middleton, attended Alice's wedding in 2012.
The short sleeved smocked dress with Peter Pan collar is made in a beautiful blue periwinkle fabric with blue daisy smocking. The piece is detailed with contrast piping on the collar and sleeves and finished with a button back and sash tie. The dress comes in a range of sizes from 6 months up to 6 years, but has unfortunately sold-out.
The adorable frock was teamed with a navy 'Rose' cardigan by Amaia Kids (£45). The Spanish made knit top is made from 100% cotton and features a square neck and mother of pearl button-fastening at the front.
The look was complemented with navy leather Mary Jane shoes and white Condor 'Perle' Socks with Openwork Cuff. The shoes are are currently unidentified.
A Princess Charlotte outfit would not be complete without a signature Amaia hair bow!
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 chestnut 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, white CondorPerle Socks with Openwork Cuff, 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.
She again wore the white Condor Perle Socks with Openwork Cuff.
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. She wore them with her white Condor Perle Socks with Openwork Cuff.
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 Condor 'Perle' Socks with Openwork Cuff.
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.
