7. Girls Wear Dresses
While royal boys are required to wear shorts, young royal girls are required to wear dresses. That's why you only exclusively see Princess Charlotte wearing smock dresses with peter pan collars. While this might sound overly gendered, childrenswear designer Rachel Riley, who's dressed Prince George, told Telegraphit was so the royal could avoid looking out of date.

"We have been doing very similar things for 18 years in that our collection is classic. The reason why I design clothes that way is because if they wear very simple things, it’s about the child, and it’s timeless in that you can’t really date a specific photo or put them in something that seems out of date. I think they are going for clothing that is classic and timeless, rather than clothes that draw attention to them," she said. But the princess does wear shorts while in private.
