Princess Charlotte Will Not Wear a Dress Before Her First Birthday

kate middleton princess charlotteWhen you think of princesses, you think of crowns, tulle, and dresses -- long, fairy-tale gowns. But along comes Will and Kate's first daughter to make some changes there. Princess Charlotte isn't going to wear dresses (just yet). We are just four months into her sweet life and she's already breaking all the stereotypes, which makes sense since she is Kate Middleton's daughter. But this no-dress situation is some sort of tradition.


Hear ye! Hear ye! Princess Charlotte's dress wearing will commence once the little lady turns 1, and not a moment before. We're not counting the fancy frock she wore to her Christening because that was a hand-me-down from previous royals. And by hand-me-down, I mean of the finest variety.

Rachel Riley, the princess's favorite children's designer, said that it is family tradition to wear onesies and not dresses. They will wait until Charlotte is walking to put her in a dress. In very British fashion, instead of calling them onesies, they are referred to as babysuits.

Fancy a babysuit, Princess Charlotte? Oh yes!

How sweet. I can just imagine her sweet little baby leg rolls crawling around. Maybe she even wears some babylegs -- baby legwarmers, of course. I have to say that I love a onesie, too. Those snaps on the babysuit make it so much easier to change a nappy.

Meanwhile, Kate must be stockpiling dresses size 12 months and up because it's really hard to resist the frills, the eyelet, the pale yellow ruffles -- the baby gowns.
