A thrifty princess! Kate dresses eight-year-old Charlotte in a £39 recycled Rachel Riley outfit and a £48 Reiss cardigan she’s worn to previous royal events to visit the RAF base
The Princess of Wales is known for upcycling her outfits, and it looks like her daughter is following in her footsteps.
Eight-year-old Princess Charlotte joined her family for the Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford today, where they explored a C17 aircraft along with her siblings and parents, Kate and Prince William.
The little royal was dressed in a £39 black and white striped Rachel Riley gown that she last wore at the 2022 Commonwealth games.
The dress was such a hit with fans that it sold out in less than 24 hours.
Meanwhile, she was also wearing a chic £48 white Reiss cardigan that she has been seen wearing on a number of occasions.

During today’s engagement, Princess Charlotte listened carefully during the engagement and stayed close to her parents.
However, she was led astray by her little brother, who was perplexed by something he had seen on the roof of the plane.
Prince George was dressed in green chinos and a short-sleeved shirt for the tour, while his younger brother looked adorable in a navy sweater and matching shorts.
Princess Charlotte wore a black and white striped dress with a Peter Pan-style collar and a white cardigan to protect her from the rain.
Both Charlotte and Louis looked adorable in their matching navy blue sneakers as they braved the rain.
Looking typically chic, Kate, 41, opted for a striking beige Blaze Milano blazer with a white blouse and adapted blue pants while scouting a plane.
