Princess Charlotte, the daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales, may only be seven years old, but she already has a better wardrobe than most.
In the most recent family photo shared by Prince William and Princess Kate in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth II, the royal tot showed off her status as a mini style icon by donning the cutest floral dress. The royal family shared a portrait of the late monarch with her great-grandchildren to commemorate what would have been Her Majesty’s 97th birthday; little Charlotte stood out in the picture in the cutest tea dress.
The J.Crew floral dress worn by the Princess, 8, featured a smocked bodice, elegant long sleeves, and a pretty square neckline. The statement print was adorned with red, white, and blue flowers, and the twirl-worthy skirt created a stunning summer ensemble. The young royal’s sleek, straight golden-blonde hair fell to her shoulders, prompting royal fans to remark on how quickly the Princess is emulating her mother’s natural beauty.
If you’ve heard of the “Kate effect,” then the “Charlotte effect” is soon to follow. The Princess’ lovely smocked dress has already sold out on the J. Crew website, demonstrating her sartorial influence.
While Charlotte is undoubtedly continuing her mother’s fashion-forward legacy, her most recent appearance actually has the cutest resemblance to her aunt Meghan Markle’s distinctive sense of style. The Duchess of Sussex has worn J.Crew clothing on numerous occasions and has long been a fan of the brand.
The high-end casual clothing preference of Duchess Meghan has come to be associated with J.Crew creations. Meghan has an extensive collection of J.Crew clothing, ranging from her tailored-fit navy and white coat to her “Striped Sweater Flare” midi skirt.
The Princess of Wales has also been seen sporting the high-end US retailer. The royal’s easy-to-wear yet functional “Colette Suede Pumps” were a summertime staple for her tour of Pakistan. What’s not to love?
