Princess Charlotte Might Have Worn Prince Harry’s Shoes From 1986

Princess Charlotte is following in the footsteps of her mother by rewearing old closet items — and on Monday, the 2-year-old took the clothing recycling principle to the next level when she appeared to be wearing a pair of shoes that Prince Harry had worn as a child in 1986.

The stylish toddler wore a red flowered dress and a bow in her hair, finishing off the look with a pair of red shoes.

The princess’ stylish look immediately drew the attention of social media users, who pointed out the shoe’s striking similarity to a pair Prince Harry had worn in 1986. Prince Harry had styled his pair a little differently, wearing a striped collared shirt and shorts, but both royals styled the shoes with white socks.

While it’s likely that Princess Charlotte’s shoes were purchased just for her more recently — she wears similar shoe styles from traditional English brands regularly — it would not be the first time that Princess Charlotte or her brother, Prince George, stepped out in items previously worn by their father or uncle.
