If you were hoping that Princess Charlotte's next appearances involved a slew of pretty dresses, you're going to have to wait a little longer. Well, a lot longer, actually. Because it's highly unlikely that Kate Middleton will put Charlotte in a dress (you know, except for that gorgeous christening gown) for the next few years.
While you recover from this fashion blow, let us tell you why—or at least give you the why according to Rachel Riley, who just so happens to be Kate's go-to children's wear designer. She recently told PEOPLE that, at the very least, Charlotte probably won't don another frock until her first birthday, and maybe even longer.
'Because they're a traditional family, I'm sure that she'll wear babysuits for the first year, and then only when she's walking will she then move into dresses," she said. "Even in terms of separates, I don't think she'll be wearing [them] until much later.'
While normally we'd balk at the idea of no dresses for far too long, we're kind of okay with the whole idea of babysuits all day every day. Because if Kate is, in fact, going to Rachel to select Charlotte's wardrobe, we can still expect a whole lotta cute for the next few years.
And after little Charlotte starts chasing George around, well, let's just say we're keeping our fingers crossed for a few mommy-and-me matching outfits. Because if George looks this much like William, we can only imagine the #twinning overload we'll get from Charlotte.
