Princess Charlotte has once again caught the attention of royal fans, sparking a running commentary online about her “adorable dress”. To mark the occasion of His Majesty’s official birthday, Princess Charlotte decided to pay a sweet tribute to her younger brother, Prince Louis, who wore a very similar outfit at last year’s Trooping the Colour.
The eight-year-old wore a traditional red and white dress with a Peter Pan collar and red embroidery and bow to attend the Trooping the Colour 2023 celebrations and she co-ordinated with her brothers who were wearing scarlet ties as they rode in the carriage procession along the Horse Guards Parade.
To eagle-eyed royal fans, the outfit is a similar replica of Prince Louis’s adorable blue and white sailor’s outfit, complete with a tie that was worn at Trooping the Colour 2022.

Princess Charlotte’s dress was teamed up with her trademark hairstyle with her dark blonde hair pulled back into a chic style.
Royal fans have taken to Twitter to express their admiration for Princess Charlotte’s style at the royal celebration.
One user, @isaguor commented: “Awww Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis look so cute!”
@ChristinZ added: “Happy Prince Louis and fab outfit from Princess Charlotte.”
@BellesWaves also wrote: “Love Princess Charlotte’s dress.”
Also riding in the carriage was the Princess of Wales, wearing a vibrant green Andrew Gn dress and Queen Camilla in a red silk coat dress, taking inspiration from the Grenadier Guards uniform.
King Charles took the royal salute earlier as Colonel in Chief of the Household Division’s seven regiments as his family and thousands of spectators watch on. The King himself is taking part in today’s ceremony, becoming the first monarch in more than 30 years to do so.
Alongside her two brothers and her mother and father, Princess Charlotte will be making an appearance on the Buckingham Palace Balcony after the procession.
The prestigious parade harks back to the early 18th century when the colours (flags) of the battalion were carried (or “trooped”) down the ranks in order to be seen and recognised by the soldiers.
