New royal family photos were released in time for the celebration of Princess Charlotte’s third birthday. While the images are the first of the new family member, Prince Louis, there’s one more part of the photos that got fans’ attention. Princess Charlotte is wearing a hand-me-down from older brother, Prince George. 

Members of the royal family are humans too. They may differ from us mere mortals in a ton of ways, there are things we have in common. One would be using hand-me-downs. 

In one photo released yesterday, Princess Charlotte was seen cradling her new baby brother, Prince Louis. Eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that the navy blue cardigan the little royal was wearing in the photo was first worn by her big brother.

The piece of clothing was first seen on the four-year-old in a 2016 photo with Queen Elizabeth to celebrate her highness’ 90th birthday. The royal successors were seen together with their cousins and other members of the royal family. According to People, the sweater is from Spanish brand Fine Ejerique and retails for $52. 

“We couldn’t be happier to see little Princess Charlotte wearing the same cardigan Prince George once wore,” designer Ana Pérez told People. “It is a huge pleasure to be among the brands in their wardrobe.”

Interestingly, the solo photo of Prince Louis showed him wearing a white jumper that was first worn by Charlotte as well. Their photo also resembles that of Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s first portrait together.

The three-year-old royal will be the first British princess to keep her position in the royal line of succession even after having a younger brother. Previous laws suggest a son would overtake an older sister in the thrown. According to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, “In determining the succession to the Crown, the gender of a person born after 28 October 2011 does not give that person, or that person’s descendants, precedence over any other person (whenever born).”
