On May 2, 2015, a new member joined the royal family, and the world was instantly smitten. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge has been a celebrity since the day she was born, and today, is one of the coolest toddlers around.
Following after her mom, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, Charlotte has fabulous style. And as a pair, this mother and daughter are unstoppable. So let’s take a look at the last two years of best style moments from the royal mother and daughter.
Fashionable since the first day
Being royalty, Princess Charlotte was introduced to the public right away. Middleton and her husband, Prince William, showed off their newborn daughter to world just 10 hours after she was born, according to E! News. Middleton stunned in a Jenny Packham yellow print dress, and (impressively!) nude heels, not showing any signs of just having given birth. She held her new baby girl, dressed in white, for the big reveal.
It was a happy day for the whole family, as a statement was released from Kensington Palace (via People). It read, "The Duke and Duchess are hugely grateful for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world…It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter."
In their Sunday best
In July of 2015, the world was able to see Princess Charlotte again for a very big day: her christening. Both she and her mom were dressed in white for the big moment, which took place at St. Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham. According to The Huffington Post, many members from the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II, were in attendance.
Middleton shined in an Alexander McQueen coat dress, topped with an elegant hat by Jane Taylor. Mom and daughter looked perfect for the celebration.
Living that snow bunny life
The royal family managed to find some time for a family trip in early 2016. In March of that year, they unveiled pictures from their time away skiing in the French Alps. Managing to keep the news away from the press, Prince William and Middleton were able to take their 2-year-old son Prince George and 10-month-old Princess Charlotte on vacation. During the trip, the family dressed for the weather, staying warm in their ski gear.
Middleton looked fabulous as always, wearing a white E+O ski jacket, adding a pop of color with red ski pants. Middleton has been known for recycling her looks over time, and that is just the case with this outfit. According to The Telegraph, the Duchess of Cambridge rocked this same look on ski trips in 2008 and 2010.
Princess Charlotte had a similar look, in a John Lewis snowsuit and perfectly pink hat and boots. As a spokesman from Kensington Palace shared (via The Telegraph), "This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow…It was a very special and fun short holiday for the family."
Mother daughter matching at its finest
June of 2016 included another big celebration for the royal family. They all came together to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, which included the British tradition of a parade and the Royal Airforce flyover, as reported by Today. Both Middleton and Princess Charlotte looked ready for summer, both wearing white and light pinks.
Yet again, Middleton showed that re-wearing is the way to go. According to People, Middleton wore the same Alexander McQueen white coat dress that she did at Princess Charlotte’s christening. This time she swapped out hats, choosing a light pink Philip Treacy option and pearl earrings, transforming it into a brand new outfit. Princess Charlotte followed suit, adorably dressed in a light pink dress, with matching shoes and hair barrette.
Traveling in style
This mother-daughter duo have equally fabulous style abroad, too.
During their royal tour of Canada in September 2016, the family of four visited for eight days. The royals made quite the entrance when they first arrived in Victoria, British Columbia. As reported by ABC News, Middleton stunned in a bright blue Jenny Packham dress. Princess Charlotte made an excellent impression on her first royal tour, opting for a lighter blue dress, with matching blue bow for her hair.
Prince William shared (via ABC News), "The warm welcome that you gave us at that important moment in our lives meant a lot to us — and we have never forgotten it. That is why we are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us in Canada this time round, beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country."
Still classy while playing around
The royal tour of Canada included a variety of experiences for the little ones. During a tea party, Princess Charlotte enjoyed balloons, petting animals, and other activities. She wore another light blue dress, but this one included bright pink accessories, from the buttons to the bow. As Vanity Fair reported, the Duchess went for a See by Chloé eyelet white dress.
Charlotte shined during her debut trip
To end the royal tour, both Middleton and Princess Charlotte pulled out all the stops with their stylish looks, as reported by Vanity Fair. While Middleton went with a simple, classic look, wearing a Catherine Walker white coat and nude LK Bennett shoes, Princess Charlotte added a pop of color with a crimson cardigan and shoes to go with her dress.
Ready for a wedding
Now 2 years old, Princess Charlotte had a big part in her aunt’s wedding. Pippa Middleton was married at St. Mark’s Chapel in Englefield, England in May 2017, as reported by People. The princess had a big role as one of Pippa’s flower girls. She looked the part, with white dress, dusty rose-colored ribbon, and complete with the perfect flower crown.
The Duchess of Cambridge took a note from her daughter’s look, wearing the same dusty rose color for her ensemble. For the make of her dress, Middleton showed off her favorite designers’ looks yet again. As shared by Glamour, her dress was Alexander McQueen while her fascinator was designed by Jane Taylor. She topped off the elegant look with earrings by Kiki McDonough.
Pretty in pink
Middleton and Princess Charlotte looked positively pretty in pink in June of 2017 for another year of celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday with the Trooping the Colour parade, as reported by The Telegraph.
With another appearance on the famed balcony, the mother-daughter duo showed how impressively they can coordinate. As Elle reported, Princess Charlotte wore a pink print dress with matching hair barrette. Her mother kept with her fabulous style, sporting an Alexander McQueen dress for the occasion, with matching fascinator. Both mother and daughter stood out, wearing fun summer colors for the big celebration.
A perfect fashion duo
If there’s one thing that is for certain, it’s that this mother and daughter have their fashion choices down. Middleton has long been praised for her style, and it’s clear her daughter is following in her footsteps.
Still just a toddler, Princess Charlotte will have many events and looks to come. And when the Princess is around, there is a good chance that Middleton isn’t far behind. Here’s to many more years of fabulous looks from the mother-daughter duo.
