THE world watched as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot at the weekend - but some royal fans spotted a surprising detail about Prince George’s page boy outfit. The four-year-old royal broke with tradition for the first time, wearing trousers instead of his signature shorts. For the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the little prince donned a custom-made uniform by Saville Row tailors Dege & Skinner. His outfit was the miniature version of the uniform worn by dad Prince William and his uncle Prince Harry, which were inspired by their former regiment Blues and Royals.

He told The Sun Online: “Not only does The Duchess of Cambridge have to worry about dressing herself but she has to dress … [Read more...] about Prince George broke with tradition at the Royal Wedding… did you spot what was different about the future king?

IF you thought Prince George and Princess Charlotte couldn’t get any cuter, be prepared to be wrong. The adorable royal kids have a sweet nickname for the Duchess of Cornwall – and it’s not grandma. Camilla told singer Lady Gaga at the 2016 Royal Variety Performance that her grandkids call her “GaGa”. And while the kids have grown up with Carole Middleton on their mum’s side and Camilla, they do hear about their maternal grandma from their dad’s side, Princess Diana. Prince William revealed in the documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy that he’s sad his two kids will never know Princess Diana. To the kids, he refers to his mum as “Granny Diana” and joked she would have been a “nightmare grandmother” as she wouldn’t have left them alone.

MEMBERS of the Royal Family have to abide by a very strict dress code - it’s unlikely we’ll ever see the Duchess of Cambridge in an old pair of leggings or The Queen strolling about in a pair of trainers. From Prince George’s shorts to Prince William’s beige chinos, here we explain the dress code the royals have to follow. Why does Prince George always wear shorts? William Hanson claims that shorts on young boys are a silent British class marker and trousers are deemed “suburban” – something no self-respecting royal would want to be considered. He told The Sun Online: “Not only does The Duchess of Cambridge have to worry about dressing herself but she has to dress her own children appropriately. "She has to find a balance between royal tradition, heritage and more proletariat customs, such as the ‘suburban’ habit of making young boys wear trousers."
