We’re in the thick of summer now, and while many of us can’t go anywhere to show off our cute summery outfits, we can live vicariously through the best royal summer fashion of years past. Since they’re always in the public eye, they know how to dress to impress — especially Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. (No one is surprised that they can rock a stunning summertime look.)
On the flip side, usually, Prince William and Prince Harry’s outfits don’t differ much any time of the year. They wear full suits in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. But there have been a couple of times over the years where they’ve taken a fashion risk for the warmer months. Every time they shake things up, it’s a breath of fresh air.
And when it comes to the royal kids’ fashion, they’re pretty much always prepared for hot weather.
Royal boys are supposed to wear shorts until they’re around 7 or 8 years old. Knee socks keep their legs warm in the winter, and then in the summer, they’re ready to go. With the Duchess of Sussex almost always putting Princess Charlotte in dresses, she’s pretty much prepared for summertime. She just ditches the tights her mom makes her wear in the colder months.
There are two summer events for royals that always makes them turn their wardrobe up to 10. Royal Ascot, a horse racing event, brings out stunning royal looks, as does the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament. Plus, with summer weddings and various other events to attend, the royals’ warm weather looks are almost always on point.
