Prince George Recreated a Prince William Look From 33 Years Ago

Prince George recently wore an outfit that was very similar to one Prince William wore in 1985. Prince George has dressed like his dad on multiple occasions.

Like father, like son. At Prince Louis' christening (opens in new tab) at the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace, in London, Prince George (opens in new tab) stepped out in a white shirt with blue piping and adorable blue shorts.

The outfit is a classic little prince look, as evidenced by the fact that George's dad, Prince William (opens in new tab), wore an almost-identical ensemble in April 1985. William was photographed in a similar look while leaving Italy on the royal yacht Brittania with his brother, Prince Harry, and his parents, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

This isn't the first time George has emulated his dad's childhood style. In 2015, George wore a red and white outfit to meet his baby sister, Princess Charlotte, for the first time. The look was very reminiscent of the outfit William wore to visit Harry as a newborn.
