Times Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis outfit-repeated

When it comes to children’s clothing, the Cambridges like to stick to tradition.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are known for their cute, timeless children’s clothing, but eagle-eyed royal fans may notice that many of their adorable looks are hand-me-downs.

From sporting styles once seen on Father Prince William (or Uncle Prince Harry) to passing on pieces from siblings, the Cambridge kids have often seen their clothes replicated over the years.

The two princes have also been seen in outfits similar to those once worn by their father, keeping royal traditions alive even if the exact garments didn’t stick.

Below, we look back at 10 royal outfits that were so much fun that the smallest Cambridges wore them twice.
