Kate Middleton shows her thrifty side as she dresses Prince Louis in Princess Charlotte's hand-me-downs
For his first official portrait, Kate dressed Prince Louis in a matching cream jumper and trouser set which was earlier worn by his older sister
We all have witnessed how the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of recycling her past favorite looks, and it seems she is grooming Prince Louis to follow in her footsteps. For his first official portrait, Kate dressed Prince Louis in a matching cream jumper and trouser set which was earlier worn by his older sister Princess Charlotte.

The photographs of Prince Louis were clicked by Kate herself and show Prince Louis in the arms of Charlotte who is dressed in a blue cardigan, which in turn was once worn by Prince George for a Vanity Fair photo shoot.

The cream jumper and matching trousers are likely to be one of the many hand-me-downs which Prince Louis will receive.
The Daily Mail quoted designer Rachel Riley, whose clothes have been worn by George and Charlotte, as saying, "We often see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing her favorite pieces over again, and her children have worn the same outfit for different occasions too".
"Children’s clothes are often handed down from one sibling to the next and traditional clothes, in particular, can also be handed down from generation to generation. In fact, we have seen Prince George wearing the same outfit that Prince William wore, and of course, both children have been christened in the same christening gown," she continued.
Kate Middleton and Prince William presented Prince Louis to the world wrapped in a shawl from GH Hurt and Son Ltd which is similar to the ones that Prince George and Princess Charlotte were seen in.
Prince George has been spotted in outfits which are hand-me-downs from his father and include a blue colored romper suit which he wore at the color ceremony in 2015 just before he celebrated his second birthday. Prince William wore the same baby blue romper suit which his father had worn at the same ceremony at Buckingham Palace in 1984.
