We met the littlest member of the Royal Family just 10 hours after she had been born, draped in the most exquisite little blanket as her proud parents showed her off to the world. We then were shown images of an incredibly beautiful Christening where Princess Charlotte was dressed in a Victorian inspired gown. Though now we are learning that we won’t be seeing the 4 month old in another dress anytime soon.

One of the children’s wear designers that the Duchess of Cambridge regularly consults with, Rachel Riley, has spoken with People Magazine about how we won’t be seeing a little dress fit for a princess on the tiny Royal until she turns 1 (or thereabouts).

“Because they’re a traditional family, I’m sure that she’ll wear babysuits for the first year, and then only when she’s walking will she then move into dresses,” Riley tells PEOPLE. “Even in terms of separates, I don’t think she’ll be wearing separates until much later,”

 Here is the gorgeous little Princess at her Christening.

We know that the Royal family are certainly trendsetters when it comes to fashion, anything that Princess Kate is spotted in sells out almost immediately. Her Royal Highness is also known for recycling outfits which she has been praised for, and now we feel that this new trend that Kate is setting might just take off!

Did you dress your little one in baby suits until they learned how to walk? SHARE with us in the comments below.

  • Dreses are really inappropriate from 6- 18 months because of the activities they are learning, crawling, standing, walking around.


  • Dresses are an inconvenience – they move uo when you pick up the baby and when they are toddlers it impinges on their ability to climb and play.


  • These guys are the perfect mix of personable and tradition


  • my girl pretty much lived in her onesies because they are so much easier to deal with and dresses are only for special occasions then and now that she’s walking, pants are her favourites


  • We did baby suits mostly until they are walking. Dresses are a pain when they are trying to crawl.


  • now a picture on this isn’t available anymore.


  • It makes sense and good to see they are sensible parents.


  • I did put little dresses on my daughter before she turned one, especially for special occasions.


  • Mostly babysuits but not always.


  • The kids are so cute


  • It’s lovely to see practical winning over fashion. My girls did have dresses for very special occasions, but they were a nuisance when they were trying to crawl. Much easier once they were walking.


  • had boys so did the winter all in one thing in summer tshirt and and comfy pants did put in. Soon be going into winter over there getting cool, so smart idea pants for baby and crawling wear


  • It’s sensible to dress baby girls in clothes that are comfortable & don’t ride up while they are so little. I love the frilly bloomers & playsuits when they start crawling!


  • Gorgeous photos thanks for sharing


  • What a lovely bub!
