Prince George's christening outfit a big hit, sells out

London: Prince George may be just about two years old but he is proving to be quite a style icon with the outfit he wore to his sister Princess Charlotte's christening being sold out on Monday.
The Prince, who will be 2-years-old on July 22, was wearing a smocked set of red shorts and embroidered shirt by the British designer Rachel Riley, a favourite choice of his mother Kate Middleton for her children's clothes.
This morning the company's website had sold out of the 85 pounds-outfit in 12 month and 18 month sizes, The Telegraph reported.
For the second time in a matter of weeks, Prince George wore an almost exact replica of an outfit worn by his father the Duke of Cambridge on a similar occasion.
His red ensemble was the nearest modern equivalent to an outfit worn by Prince William when he was first taken to see his newborn brother Prince Harry in hospital in 1984.
After the Trooping the Colour ceremony last month, George appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace wearing a near-identical sky blue outfit to the one worn by Prince William on his own balcony debut in 1984.
The red 100 per cent cotton outfit worn by Prince George at Sunday's christening is described on the Rachel Riley website as "hand smocked across the chest with a vintage inspired design". The shorts can be buttoned onto the shirt for a formal look.
Prince William, Kate, George and Charlotte appeared together for the first time as a family of four yesterday as two-month-old Charlotte was baptised at St Mary Magdalene Church on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate.
Prince George wowed the crowds of around 3,500 gathered to watch from the paddock with his royal wave and antics as his great grandmother, the Queen, bent over to speak to him.
