Why Kate Middleton doesn\'t dress Prince George in trousers
Prince George and Princess Charlotte play with balloons and pet animals in Canada.
We can all agree that Prince George is pretty adorable. Even putting aside his royal status, he\'s a gorgeous kid.
What we hadn\'t really noticed before though, is that he\'s pretty much always wearing shorts. It turns out there\'s a reason for that.
that trousers on young boys are seen as "suburban" in upper-class British circles.
Shorts and knee socks is a classic look, Prince George.
That\'s right, showing your knees is a marker of class in the United Kingdom, if you\'re a boy under the age of 12 or so.

"Not only does The Duchess of Cambridge have to worry about what she is wearing in public but she has to dress her own children and find a balance between royal tradition and heritage and more proletariat customs, such as the \'suburban\' habit of making young boys wear trousers," Manson told the
Prince George, pictured with his parents and sister, is rarely seen with long trousers on.
"Although I don\'t really think that the sartorial rule of shorts for young boys would be a new one for Catherine. I would suspect that her own mother and mother\'s friends knew this – as more well-heeled middle class mothers do – and dressed their own boys accordingly."
Looking at the family\'s photos from their tour of Canada, it\'s all shorts for George. The
quotes a few Twitter users who think the look is a bit dated.
"Why are the royal children always dressed in such an old fashion style? Or do they only wear trainers and jeans when chilling at home?" asked one.
"They royal kids look like they were dressed in the 1950s," said another.
We think he looks cute, but there\'s no denying it\'s a slightly more classic look than you see on a lot of kids.
Considering how much George is in the public eye, that\'s understandable.
