Thank you for following What Prince George Wore along with us, we can’t say how much we appreciate you being a part of the community enjoying the young man’s style the past 18 months. But, with Princess Charlotte joining George in the royal nursery we thought it made sense to have one blog following both styles, all in one place. Thus, we created….

What Kate’s Kids Wore is up and running, with all of George’s most recent engagements covered, as well as Charlotte’s; we’ll be migrating all of the content here to that site. We’ll leave this site ‘live’ for the time being, but eventually What Kate’s Kids Wore will be the only active site for our coverage of what the Cambridge children are wearing and related topics.

Follow the general posts with us, and/or visit The Very Latest page, with the most up-to-date info on all things related to George and Charlotte’s wardrobes. We also hope you’ll join us on the What Kate’s Kids Wore Facebook page, and on our WKKW Twitter feed as well.

So please, come and join the fun at What Kate’s Kids Wore!

Today’s Trooping the Colour event brought a special treat: Prince George’s first appearance on the balcony at a Buckingham Palace.

As the day’s parade unfolded Prince George was seen reveling in the pageantry. Chris Jackson of Getty Images captured the moment and shared it on Twitter.

The toddler is in Nanny Maria Borrallo’s arms, obviously wowed by the ceremony.

When it came time to watch the flyover George was a bit more subdued, probably taken aback by the immense crowds and accompanying noise.

He seemed particularly enchanted by the dramatic fly past.

For the historic appearance at Trooping the Colour Prince George wore the same blue ensemble his father wore to the event in 1984. Kensington Palace noted the significance in this tweet.

The outfit featured a short-sleeved top adorned by a delicate ruffle at the cuff and collar.

A better look.

We saw a new pair of t-strap walkers, very similar to the young royal’s Start-Rite ‘Jo’ shoes.

Please forgive the lack of detailed information and photos (I am traveling and challenged by composing and posting on the I-Pad.) Tomorrow night the post will be updated. For now, we leave you with Prince George’s wave goodbye to the crowds gathered at Buckingham Palace.

We are back with a quick post about what Prince George wore for a playdate with his mum some months ago, when the two spent time at a public park near their Anmer Hall country home. Australia’s New Idea magazine has the photos in its April 20 issue.

The pictures are from the winter, and they show the Duchess and Prince having what looks like a delightful time at Snettisham Park, a working farm that also has oodles of fun activities and attractions, including a petting zoo. There are unconfirmed reports the photos were taken with Kate’s permission; that the person selling them to the Australian magazine donated the money to charity. I really don’t know if that is the case or not.

We’re not publishing the pictures here on the blog. If interested in looking at them, this link takes you to Lulu’s Facebook page, with scans of the images.

George appears to have been in a Columbia snowsuit, the brand’s Snuggly Bunny Bunting in “collegiate navy,” originally selling in the US at $95. The piece is down filled, with a wind- and water-repellant outer layer and fleece-lined interior. There is a full-length diagonal zipper for ease in getting the garment on and off, there are also fold-over hands and feet. It is sold out at most retailers, but we found it significantly discounted ($38) at flash sale site Gilt.com.

It is also still in stock in different colors and motifs at 6pm.com (prices run from $37.99 to $52.99), and at Little Trekkers ( £22.49).

It looked like the young Prince was wearing a hat by Jojo Maman Bébé, the brand’s Cable Knit Hat.

The piece is 100% cotton on the outside, lined with a snuggly warm fleece material. It retails at Jojo Maman Bébé for £12, and is also available at Amazon from various vendors, including JoJo Maman Bébé, where it is priced at $24. The piece is also offered in pink and ivory.

Our thanks to the lovely ladies at Prince George Pieces who located the snowsuit and hat!

George was in a pair of Aigle boots, a new brand for us. The word actually means “eagle,” it is pronounced “eh-gleu.” The boots are made by hand at Ingrandes, France near Chatellerault. Not dissimilar from the boots worn by George’s mother, Le Chameau; they are also made in France.

George’s model is Aigle’s unisex Child Baby Flac  for Infants/Toddlers. The boots are rubber, not PVC as many are these days, and lined in cotton. They are offered by Aigle on Amazon for $59. The boots are also carried at Diapers.com in the US (at $59), at John Lewis in the UK (£25) and at Smallable (€ 16.83, about $18). They come in a variety of colors and even some patterns, the motif isn’t limited to just navy blue.

Our thanks to World of Windsor on Twitter for the ID on the George’s boots.

Aigle is a heritage brand worth knowing. The company has been around since 1853, started by American émigré. Aigle is credited with actually inventing and making the first rubber boot. The company also offers a broad mix of apparel and accessories. Below, some of the s/s 2015 children’s styles at Aigle.

As it turns out, the company also offers an almost-identical style of boots for adults, we show them at Amazon ($125). Among the celebrities seen wearing the brand: Alexa Chung, Courtney Cox, Natalie Portman, and Liv Tyler.

Many may have recognized a Liberty print shirt, above right. Below we share several other pieces from Aigle. None overly exciting, no party frocks or sequins, just basics that can go a long way in a wardrobe. From left to right: a classic chambray shirt in blue cotton, a women’s parka, and an oversized boyfriend sweater.

We’re just tickled you stopped by, it has been a little while (cough-cough) since we posted. Some of our time and energy has been going into a new site that will cover everything worn by both Cambridge kids! Thank you for being so patient!
