Cashmere Was Top Choice For Casual Princess Charlotte

Cashmere Was Top Choice For Casual Princess Charlotte

The royal family have had the spotlight firmly on them over the last few weeks, taking part in numerous public events to promote, and celebrate, the King’s Coronation. 

It wasn’t just senior members of the family that were kept busy either, as the next generation of royals - Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis - all did their part to greet crowds, as the country came together for the historic event. 

Most people couldn’t help but be captivated by the youngsters, and like any member of the royal family, it wasn’t just what they were doing or saying the public were interested in, but also what they were wearing. 

Having a fashion icon as a mum, the Princess of Wales, being style conscious seems to come easily to Princess Charlotte, even as a busy eight-year-old. 

In fact, it was in her most casual moments over the Coronation weekend (May 6th to 8th) that she arguably looked her best. 

After what must have been an exhausting day at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, the princess, along with her brothers, did what kids love doing best and got her hands dirty at a local Scouts headquarters in Slough. 

Away from the fanfare of marches, golden coaches, and formalities, Princess Charlotte had fun getting involved in activities with other Scouts. 

The brunette, who looks the spitting image of her mother Kate Middleton, did some painting and had a go at archery as part of the Big Help Out scheme, which intended to encourage more people to go into volunteering. 

As the princess could not possibly wear a floor-length gown for the activities, as she had done the day before, she opted for a pair of denim shorts, a pink polo shirt, a pair of white trainers, and a berry pink cashmere jumper instead. 

She is clearly a fan of the fabric, as she wore a very similar pure cashmere jumper in blue in her seventh birthday portrait, sitting in front of a field of bluebells. 

The white spotty polo shirt she wore for the special photo seems to be from the same collection as the pink top she wore most recently, which was from high street retailer Next. 

Even though the princess is third in line to the throne, she looked incredibly comfortable in her casual ensemble, getting stuck into the physical activities with the other children. 

Of course, the day before was a different story, with Princess Charlotte having never appeared more regal. She wore a bespoke white dress and matching cape designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen for the Coronation ceremony

Not only was the designer responsible for a very similar bespoke outfit for the Princess of Wales, but she created Kate’s stunning lace gown for her wedding in 2011. 

The youngster’s ivory silk number was adorned with embroidery, matching Mary Jane shoes, and a headpiece made from silver bullion and crystals, created by Jess Collett and Alexander McQueen.
