Why Princess Kate Dresses Her Kids in Spanish Designers

Hot demand for dress worn by Charlotte.

Six-month-old Charlotte, Queen Elizabeth’s newest great-grandchild, was pictured wearing the pink smocked dress with ruffled neck in photos taken by her mother Catherine. With her sweep of dark hair and sparkling eyes, Princess Charlotte won admirers across the globe when she was pictured in two new photographs released last week.It’s hard to imagine a more enviable position for a children’s dress designer than having your frock featured in an official portrait of a royal baby.

A family-run children’s clothes shop in Spain has been inundated with orders from around the world for dresses identical to the one worn by Britain’s Princess Charlotte in the latest official photos — but has enough cloth to make only 20 of them. Charlotte, the second child of Prince William and his wife Kate turned six months old on Nov. 2 and Kensington Palace has issued fresh photographs of the youngster, taken in early November, to mark the occasion. “We don’t know how she got the dress,” said Margarita Pato Cid, the owner of M&H, a family boutique brand which has been running for six years and has five outlets in Spain. “We found out that Princess Charlotte was wearing it at the same time as the public, through the photos. “We think it’s possible, but we’re not sure, that it’s thanks to the nanny of William and Kate’s children,” she said, referring to Maria Teresa Turrion, who is Spanish and looks after Charlotte and her two-year-old brother Prince George. But parents hoping to dress their own little girls in the same floral frock as the fourth in line to the throne have been left disappointed – because the designer has run out of material. We have some dresses in the making but we don’t have enough material to meet all the demands,” she said, without revealing the volume of requests.

However, the shop is not going to crank up production in response to the overwhelming demand because there are only 10 metres left of the pink floral fabric used in the princess’s outfit — enough to make just 20 more dresses. Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge was born on May 2, only the fourth baby born with the title of British princess since the start of World War II. She’s the Duchess’ mini-me now that she’s reached six months and she and Prince George must be two of the cutest kiddies on the block (along with Harper and North of course!) Kate took two gorgeous photos of the little princess inside their home and we couldn’t help but coo over the little darling in her floral print dress by Spanish retailer M&H, pink tights and cashmere cardigan. The first 22 people to have placed their orders will receive the only remaining dresses that were in stock, Pato Cid said—so do not be surprised, now that these future dress owners know the rareness of “The Charlotte,” if we see a whole bunch of these cropping up on eBay within weeks.

Initially the pictures weren’t intended for public view but the duchess was so pleased with them – and the positive response her last photographs of George and Charlotte received – that she decided to release them. It is something they intend to continue to do.’ Although the couple are keen for their children to enjoy as normal a childhood as possible away from the public glare, William enjoys talking about his daughter.
