Prince Louis dressed as father William’s childhood sailor

The royalty kept quite a fashion archive. Cambridge and Sussex often borrowed jewelry and clothing items worn by family members, and in Trooping the Color on June 2, Prince Louis sought inspiration from the past. In honor of her first car parade during the annual military parade, which marks the beginning of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this year, her four-year-old father, Prince William, wore a sailor suit worn in Trooping the Color in 1985, when he was just two years old.

In the sweet photos of the event, Louis, the youngest child of William and Kate Middleton, shook hands with his siblings as the car drove back and forth from Buckingham Palace to the Horse Guards Parade. The 1985 parade, where William was seen in the same sailor suit, was a significant one for the family as it was Prince Harry’s first trooping the color. Funny enough, for his first Trooping the Color appearance in 2019, Louis wore a blue-and-white dress that Prince Harry wore to the 1986 parade.

For her siblings, Princess Charlotte wore a periwinkle patachau dress and Prince George wore a navy suit. William, meanwhile, was in his red military reign, and Middleton wore a white Alexander McQueen coat pulled from his closet, which he paired with a navy Philip Tracy hat and Diana’s sapphire earrings. Prince Harry and Megan Merkel also arrived in London on the occasion. Harry wore a navy suit and Merkel, a navy off the shoulder dress, and a wide-brimmed Stephen Jones millionaire hat.
