The Cambridge children delighted royals watchers as they stepped out on the red carpet last night with their parents Kate Middleton and Prince William at The London Palladium in the West End to watch performance of Pantoland.
And while The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, cut a glamorous figure in £1358 dress from one of her go-to brands Alessandra Rich, the young royals stole the show in sweet festive looks.
The Cambridge children delighted royals watchers as they stepped out on the red carpet last night with their parents Kate Middleton and Prince William. Prince George, seven, and Prince Louis, two, both sported cosy Christmas jumpers while Princess Charlotte, five, wore a tartan dress with woollen tights and Mary Janes
The ruffled collar on the young princess’s dress subtly echoed the frills on her mother’s outfit, and the ensemble echoed her previous looks with a more grown up subtlety.
Gone was the toddler-like bows in her hair, and instead were dark tights and shoes , which appear to be from children’s shoe brand PèPè at a cost of £145.
Meanwhile, her brothers George and Louis both paid tribute to Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper day in festive attire.
George sported a stripy £105 jumper from US giant Ralph Lauren.
The cable-wool and cashmere jumper, which features bold red and green rugby stripes, was worn over a blue collared shirt with smart black trousers and shiny black leather shoes.

The youngest of the group, Prince Louis, opted for his brother’s hand-me-down coat, a navy blue felt jacket from Amaiakids,which costs £85.
Eagle-eyed fans of the royals may remember the jacket’s first appearance, worn by Prince George in 2017 to the Queen’s Christmas Lunch.
Once inside in the royal box, the two-year-old Prince, removed his coat to show a red jumper – matching the one worn by his father Prince William.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had their first experience of a royal box, chatting excitedly (with the Duchess of Cambridge) as they waited for the start of the performance of ‘Pantoland’, starring Julian Clary and Elaine Page. Once inside in the royal box, the two-year-old Prince Louis removed his coat to show a red jumper – matching the one worn by his father Prince William.
The £48 jumper is from upmarket kids brand Trotters, a favourite of the young royals.
The wool mix crew neck ‘Jamie jumper’ is available in six colours, and is described as a ‘year-round staple’ by the British brand.
It features an all-over classic cable knit design with ribbing on the cuffs and hem and with the brand’s signature Thomas Brown elephant embroidered on the left chest.

Joining her children for the outing, The Duchess of Cambridge turned heads in a stunning petal-print navy style with a frilled neckline and balloon sleeves, which she paired with her ‘Maya Torque’ gold plated bracelet by Halcyon Days, Simone Rocha faux-pearl earrings and Prada heels.
Prince William wore a relaxed smart-casual look for the outing, wearing a navy blazer and jacket with a red jumper over a white collared shirt.
All three Cambridge children appeared to enjoy the performance of Pantoland this evening – staring Julian Clary, Elaine Paige and a host of stars – as they sat on the laps of their parents, William and Kate, in the royal box.

It was the Cambridges’ first red carpet engagement as a family of five.
On arrival, the youngsters had stopped briefly to watch actors dressed as elves entertaining the guests on the red carpet.
The children, who appeared apprehensive when they arrived, soon relaxed and looked on with glee as they took their seats and saw their father making a speech before the performance.
Prince William delivered a thoughtful and fitting tribute to the ‘national treasure’ Dame Barbara Windsor by taking the stage at a Christmas pantomime ahead of the show.
