Prince George wears same outfit as his father 32 years ago

Prince George wore the same outfit to the Queen's official birthday celebration as his father William wore nearly 32 years ago to Prince Harry's christening in 1984.

The short sleeved white shirt with peter pan collar, edged in a blue trim around the collar and cuffs, and blue shorts will have been preserved by those who care for the royal wardrobes.

The last time George appeared on the balcony he also wore one of the Duke's childhood outfits - a pale blue romper suit which William appeared in after Trooping the Colour as a toddler.
