The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's daughter Lilibet Diana was spotted during 4th July celebrations

Style sisters already! Royal fans go wild for Princess Lilibet’s and Charlotte’s traditional dress and knee socks

Princess Lilibet’s traditional attire and knee socks, which are reminiscent of a young Princess Charlotte’s appearance, have delighted royal fans. Some have even noted that Princess Lilibet’s red shoes resemble some that her father, Prince Harry, used to wear.

Just hours before her grandfather King Charles III attended his second Coronation ceremony in Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s two-year-old daughter was photographed with Harry at a Montecito Fourth of July parade.

During the July 4 celebration in California, Princess Lilibet was spotted looking out at the motorcade as it passed while sporting a patterned blue dress, white socks, and red shoes.

In 2016, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, and their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales, then the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, bid Canada farewell after an eight-day tour. Princess Charlotte wore a similar classic ensemble.

Charlotte, who was 16 months old at the time, was dressed in a charming navy and white dress with a red cardigan, red shoes, and white tights.

In addition to paying homage to her father, Lilibet’s adorable outfit included red Mary Jane-style shoes that were similar to those worn by Prince Harry as a youngster in the middle of the 1980s.

The youngster is not the first member of the Royal Family to adopt the Duke of Sussex’s fashion sense. In 2017, Charlotte wore red buckle shoes that resembled the ones her uncle Harry wore as a toddler for a photo shoot at Highgrove House.

In the arms of her mother Kate, Charlotte, then two years old, looked adorable as she stepped off the plane in Warsaw. She dazzled the crowds of onlookers and reporters with her tiny royal wave.

When Prince Harry was still a young child, Prince Charles and Princess Diana put him in a pair of shoes very similar to those you see here for a family photo shoot at Highgrove.

In order to match his older brother William’s outfit, Harry, who was then a few months shy of his second birthday, wore the shoes with a blue and white striped polo shirt and blue and white shorts.

Some royal admirers noted that other young royals have frequently worn the look of a printed blue summer dress and red shoes in the past.

On July 4, as the US celebrated its independence from British rule, The Duke of Sussex appeared to emphasize his retirement from The Firm by accompanying his daughter to the celebration in California.

While preparing for one of the most significant events of his reign—a second Coronation in the nation his adored second son once called home—his father King Charles was showing two-year-old Lilibet the Montecito Association’s Village Road Show.

Senior royals attended a prestigious event at St Giles’ Cathedral where the King and Queen Camilla were honored. They were accompanied by family members, including Prince Harry’s brother Prince William. The Duke, however, was not to be found.

While Prince Harry did go to his father’s official Coronation, which was held in the UK for the first time in 70 years, he was only there for a few hours before flying back to the US to celebrate his son Archie’s birthday, which was also that day.

At their Montecito home, his American wife Meghan Markle and their two kids stayed in the country.

The decision by Meghan to stay in California, according to sources, was welcomed in some quarters after worries that her presence might have exacerbated family conflicts.

The holiday, which is celebrated across the country with countless US flags, jubilant crowds, and parties, was shown to the Duke of Sussex’s youngest child.

Harry appeared to be making an effort to blend in as he carried his beloved daughter in his arms while donning blue jeans, a green shirt, a green cap pulled over his face, and sunglasses.

The parade the royal attended featured automobiles decked out in patriotic decorations, but it took place just hours before one of his father’s most important days.

An indication of how chilly relations between the two sides of the Atlantic still are, according to a previous report by MailOnline, is that it was not anticipated that the Duke would be in the UK for the event.

Eight weeks after his coronation in London, Charles was given the Scottish crown jewels in a historical thanksgiving service yesterday.

At St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, the monarch was presented with the Crown of Scotland, the Sceptre, and the Sword of State of the Honours of Scotland.

In a nod to his coronation in London in May, large crowds gathered to support their new monarch as he participated in the religious festivities while being observed by Queen Camilla and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

A procession of about 100 people, representing all facets of Scottish society—from the arts and politics to education, civil society, and business, including charities that the King supports as patron—moved from Edinburgh Castle to the cathedral.

The younger son of the King, however, was nowhere to be found because he was spending time with his young children.

At the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, the King only once had the opportunity to meet his youngest grandchild.

Lilibet, who was born in June 2021, has lived her entire life in California, where the Sussexes relocated after leaving the royal life.

She once traveled to the UK for the jubilee, and she also had a picnic for her first birthday at Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage.

After reports of a ‘intimate’ gathering at the Sussexes’ mansion surfaced in People Magazine in March, the Sussexes confirmed Princess Lilibet had been christened in Montecito, California.

It was also confirmed that the Prince and Princess of Wales, King Charles, and Queen Camilla were all extended invitations to the event but declined them.

In the midst of a public dispute with Meghan Markle and the rest of the Royal Family in May, Prince Harry traveled to the UK for a day to witness his father’s coronation.

The Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, along with their husbands Jack Brooksbank and Edo Mapelli Mozzi, were among the guests the Duke of Sussex spoke with at Westminster Abbey. He appeared eager to put on a jovial display.

It came after months of commotion following the release of Prince Harry’s shocking autobiography Spare, which is said to have left some family members, most notably his brother William, reeling.

The Prince has asked family members to apologise for how they allegedly treated his wife.
