14Dressing Prince George In Trousers
Once Kate and Will had children, they didn’t need to worry about just their own clothes, but those of their children to ensure that they follow royal tradition and protocol. Kate needs to make sure that Prince George is wearing tailored shorts, and not trousers, at all times.

why? Etiquette expert William Hanson says, “It's a very English thing to dress a young boy in shorts. Trousers are for older boys and men, whereas shorts on young boys is one of those silent class markers that we have in England. Although times are (slowly) changing, a pair of trousers on a young boy is considered quite middle class – quite suburban. And no self-respecting aristo or royal would want to be considered suburban. Even the Duchess of Cambridge."
While Kate needs to make sure George is in short pants, she, nor anyone else can show too much leg, and must always remain dressed modestly when in public - that also means no low-cut tops of any kind.
Kate must wear hats at formal events, and then trade the hat in for crown jewels once the clock strikes 6PM. Even when playing with her kids in public, Kate would never dare putting Princess Charlotte in a crown, since tiaras are reserved for married women.
