It’s an interesting time to be a fan of the British Royal Family.
Perhaps the world’s most famous monarchy, they’ve found themselves in an almost unprecedented amount of headlines over the past two years.
At a time where the question has to be begged as to the point of royal families even existing anymore, it would appear that Queen Elizabeth and her extensive brood are more newsworthy than ever.
The passing of Prince Philip last year, coupled with the whole debacle involving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, has meant that a lot of eyes have been firmly glued to Buckingham Palace. And that’s before we even broach the subject of Queen Elizabeth’s health, and the sex assault case recently settled by Prince Andrew.
In amongst the chaos of it all, the members of the British royal household are tasked with the immeasurable job of trying to continue their normal lives.
For senior members – like Prince Charles, for example – it might just be another day in the age-old media storm that comes with being a royal. But spare a thought for new generation, including the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are perhaps beginning to fathom just how different their lives are, and will be, from those of their subjects.
It turns out that even amidst the whirlwind of scandal, the young princelings and princesses are more than capable of making their own sorts of headlines.
This time, it’s Princess Charlotte, eldest daughter of the aforementioned Prince William and Kate Middleton, who has found herself in the spotlight, thanks in no small part to the outfit she was wearing on Easter weekend.
A little bit of digging has turned up a fascinating fact about an item of clothing she had on, and one that directly links her to her father in the most adorable way.
If you’re a fan of the British royals, as I am, you’ll likely have seen the photos from the Easter Sunday church service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor last weekend.
Though the Queen did not attend the event – she’s taken a prolonged break from duties to focus on her health – the royals were out in force.
As per Hello Magazine!, it was the young Princess Charlotte who stole the show in a gorgeous baby blue fitted coat dress from Emilia Wickstead.
The designer of the Princess’s outfit said: “It was such a pleasure to see Princess Charlotte looking so pretty in our Forget-Me-Not smocked dress as she attended the Easter Sunday Church service.
“With its classic hand-smocking design and smart Peter-pan collar, the dress has been in our collections for over 10 years, and with the sweet forget-me-not print symbolising remembrance and love, it is the perfect Easter outfit for any little girl to feel Spring-ready!”
