Bira member dresses Princess Charlotte for birthday photo shoot

Bira member Rachel Riley dressed Princess Charlotte for the photo shoot to mark her sixth birthday.

The pictures of the young Princess dressed in the navy and pink floral ditsy print frock were released on Saturday, May 2 to coincide with the celebrations.

Rachel, who launched her Rachel Riley brand in 1998, is no stranger to dressing royal babies and children. Most famously Prince George wore red shorts and a white & red shirt by the brand as a toddler.

Rachel told Bira: "It was such a treat to see Princess Charlotte wearing our button front floral dress to mark her sixth birthday! She looks so happy in the picture. 

"Princess Charlotte wore a similar button-front dress of ours when she visited the garden her mother designed at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2019. It's fun to see that this dress is a style which is as pretty on a four year old as it is for a six year old. 

"The dress she wore when she was four featured a delicate, ditsy print in pastel pink, blue and yellow, whereas the style she wore in her most recent picture, she chose a larger print in stronger colours. This print has bigger pink flowers on a navy background, which is in keeping with the choice of older girls who tend to migrate towards bolder fashion choices.

"We look forward to seeing Princess Charlotte's style develop as she continues to grow and mature and we have no doubt she will become as much of a style icon as her mother is."
