The Strict Rules Of The Royal Family Show How Tough Of A Life It Can Be

George Can’t Wear Pants

You may have noticed that Prince George is never photographed wearing a pair of full-length pants — he’s always wearing shorts. As it turns out, that’s not just a fashion preference for when his mom, Kate, gets him dressed for the day — it’s actually a sign of status. Young boys are to wear shorts, and they’re not supposed to graduate to real pants until they’re older since that’s seen as a strictly adult wardrobe choice.

We’re a little worried about him having to wear shorts in cold weather, but fortunately, this rule doesn’t apply for long. Apparently, once he turns eight years old, he’s allowed to wear full-length pants. Don’t worry, George. Warmth is coming!
