He is known for his cute shorts, but Prince George was finally allowed to wear long trousers in an official portrait for the first time.
The young royal, five, was depicted on a tree trunk in the forest near Anmer Hall, the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk, home of Cambridge, in a beautiful new family portrait that was released for Christmas.
The youngster wore a pair of blue-gray chinos that were put in the stockings for the kicking, while he leaned playfully on one leg and supported the shoulder of his father, Prince William.
It was the first time that George wore long trousers for an official portrait, or even was seen publicly, except when he acted as a Page Boy for Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie's marriages.
Prince George wore trousers in an official family portrait for the first time, in this family taken in autumn at the Norfolk house of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, which was published today
George and his fellow-pages wore miniature versions of the blue coats of Blues and Royals, similar to the uniforms Harry and William wore on the big day, complete with long trousers.
Because he is old enough to walk, George has worn shorts in all official portraits taken to mark milestones such as his birthday or the queen's 90th birthday.
He also wears shorts on photo 's taken in his school uniform, and when he accompanies his parents on foreign trips to Poland, Germany and Canada.
Previously, MailOnline & # 39; s etiquette William Hanson told Femail that Kate had only put her son in shorts, because it is an aristocratic way of dressing.
In the portrait that was used in 2017 for the Christmas card of the Cambridge family, taken during the royal tour through Poland and Germany earlier that same year, Prince George wore the shorts we are used to seeing him in
In this image, released in December 2015, taken at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, Prince George wore his characteristic shorts again in the autumn.
He claimed that shorts for young boys are basically a silent British class mark and that trousers like & # 39; suburban & # 39; be considered, which would not be a self-respecting royal will.
The Cambridge Duchess must dress her own children and find a balance between royal tradition and heritage and more proletarian practices, such as the & # 39; suburban custom to wear young boys' trousers & # 39 ;, he explained.
& # 39; Although I do not really think the tailoring scheme for young boys would be a new one for Catherine.
Back in his shorts! Prince George proposed to give an ice cube to the family dog Lupo in an official portrait made in Sandringham in 2016 and published in July that year on the occasion of his third birthday
I suspect that her own mother and mother's friends knew this – as more affluent middle class mothers do – and dressed their own boys accordingly. & # 39;
Princess Charlotte, three, also made a fashion statement in the newly released image, dressed in a navy blue vest that belonged to her five-year-old brother, Prince George.
The £ 48 knitted number of the royal favorite Fina Ejerique was on display at George in the family portrait that was released to celebrate his grandmother, the Queen's 90th birthday in 2016.
Tomboy Charlotte also wore the vest in a sweet picture of her kissing newborn prince Louis, shortly after his birth this year.

The button-downtop has a white Nordic pattern around the neckline.
On the photo of Cambridge is the Duchess of Cambridge, who is holding baby Louis, who is now almost eight months old, resting against a tree trunk in the forest at their Anmer Hall in Norfolk with the Duke of Cambridge.
The three-year-old Charlotte stands with her arms around the shoulders of her parents on the trunk, while five-year-old George playfully holds on to his father while he stands with his legs in the pipes on the trunk.
