We love his outfit. The look consisted of a £10 blue and orange striped polo shirt from John Lewis and a pair of navy shorts from Boden.

Sadly the top has already sold out but a similar style in blue and lemon is still available to buy in ages two to 11, and is priced between £8 to £12.

HELLO! spoke to esteemed children's fashion designer Rachel Riley, who told us she believes the Duchess of Cambridge actually started the trend for dressing children more traditionally when Prince George was born in 2013.

Rachel revealed: "What was most wonderful about the pictures of Prince George as a toddler wearing our outfits was that it kick-started a revival in traditional children’s wear."

She added: "It’s very common these days to see children running around in smocked outfits and classic styles and I would attribute this renaissance to Prince George and in particular his mother's choices when it came to what she dressed him in when he was little."
