  • The Duchess of Cambridge is a pro at recycling clothe, and it seems like she’s already passed this on to her daughter Princess Charlotte.

    Last week, Prince William, Kate and their three children revealed their annual Christmas card, which was a family portrait taken in the grounds of Anmer Hall, by Matt Porteous.

    In the picture, the entire family is wearing casual gear, mainly jeans and chunky jumpers, and if you feel like you’ve seen Princess Charlotte’s cardigan before, that’s because you have.

    You see Prince George wore it in April 2016, for the Queen’s birthday portrait.

    What’s lovely, apart from the fact that the piece is being worn more than once, is the fact that Kate didn’t think it was too ‘boysy’ to pass on to Charlotte, and rightly so, it is a classic piece after all, and we imagine it’ll look just as nice on Prince Louis when he’s big enough to wear it.
