We’ve noticed a few examples of royal ladies matching their kids clothing and thought we’d round them up here. Sometimes it goes a little overboard and other times it’s just plain cute.
Princess Diana & Prince William
Princess Diana had Catherine Walker create matching jackets for her and Princes William and Harry. Here she is pictured with William dressed for Easter services in 1987. Prince Charles looks a little left out in his suit; maybe that is what Diana was going for.
This is a more subtle example, but clearly Diana knew this would be a good photo op and wanted to be colour co-ordinated when dropping off William at school.
Sarah, Duchess of York & Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie
Sarah colour co-ordinated her outfit with Princess Beatrice in the early ’90’s. It looks like Beatrice was a flower girl on this particular occasion.
Now this photo below is a little different; Prince Andrew got in on things, too. These photographs were taken when the York family was all dressed up for Beatrice’s 18th birthday at Windsor Castle. They celebrated with a 1898 themed costume ball to commemorate the fact that Beatrice was born at 8:18 pm on the 8th of August, 1988. The Victorian theme was also a nod to Princess Beatrice’s great-great-great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria. Princes William and Harry and cousin Zara did not attend though they were spotted in London that day; perhaps they thought it was a bit much??
Not surprisingly, Princess Euqenie did not have as lavish an 18th birthday as her older sister. Instead, she celebrated with a small get together at Windsor Castle and a night out at a club with friends.
Sophie, Countess of Wessex & Lady Louise
And to end, we have Sophie and Lady Louise. Sophie wore this pink ensemble for Trooping the Colour in June 2011. Her daughter Lady Louise wore a very sweet matching pink coat. How cute are they?
