And for a bargain price, too

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

This weekend the royal family were attending the annual Trooping the Colour event to celebrate the Queen's official birthday. Her Majesty addressed the 'sombre national mood' following a string of terrorist attacks across the country, as well as the heartbreaking tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire, and paid tribute to the victims with a minute's silence.

She was joined by her family, as well as thousands of people who turned up at The Mall to watch the monarch pass, all hoping to get a glimpse of her. Prince Harry didn't ride on horseback like his brother, William, and father, Charles, instead taking a carriage with Kate Middleton and Camilla for this reason.

But, as always, all eyes were on Prince George and Princess Charlotte when they appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony to wave at the crowds and watch the flypast.

In particular, many were taken with Princess Charlotte's adorable pink and white smock dress. The gorgeous Peter Pan collar and puffy sleeves make it a summer must-have for babies and toddlers alike.

And the best part about it? There is an absolutely brilliant copycat on the high street, meaning you can get hold of one for your little girl for next to nothing.
