Princess Charlotte and Prince George might have slightly different wardrobes of clothes, but that doesn't stop mum Kate Middleton from making the most of hand-me-downs and getting good use out of the clothes she's bought for her kids - like any normal mum!

Kensington Palace released brand new pictures over the bank holiday weekend of Princess Charlotte cradling her little brother Prince Louis, much to the delight of royal fans all over the world.

Although Prince George wasn't featured in the two new images, captured by the Duchess of Cambridge at home in Kensington Palace, you might have missed the small detail that linked Prince George to the pictures all the same.

Eagle-eyed royal family fans were quick to spot the sweet detail that linked Prince George to the new Prince Louis pictures - Princess Charlotte was wearing her older brother's cardigan in the photo!

Kate is known for her thrifty fashion sense, and often re-wears whole outfits or statement items of clothing multiple times to get good use out of them, and it seems the mum-of-three is keen to pass this trait onto her children as she is re-using their clothes too.

Princess Charlotte was wearing the same blue cardigan that Prince George was pictured wearing during the official photographs with his great-grandmother the Queen for her 90th birthday.

The photo of Her Majesty with her youngest grandchildren and all of her great grandchildren was snapped by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair. In the photo, Prince George can be seen wearing a pair of smart red shorts and the sweet blue cardigan buttoned up, which Princess Charlotte is pictured wearing in the new photos of her baby brother.

This is not the first time Kate and William's children have been dressed in handy hand-me-downs, and it is unlikely to be the last with thrifty mum-of-three Kate keen to make the most of each item of clothing bought for her children - just like any normal mum!
