It may be a while before we get a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newborn, Lilibet Diana, who’s been holed up with her parents in Los Angeles in the week or so she’s been on planet Earth. But if she’s anything like her late grandmother and namesake, Princess Diana, the lil’ royal will soon enough be looking chic. In fact, many of the world’s royal tots and tweens seem to possess a precocious sense of fashion. After all, being photogenic is practically part of their parents’ job description (and they have the budget to fulfill it). That’s been the case for at least decades, as Harry himself can attest. “I genuinely think [Diana] got satisfaction in dressing William and myself up in the most bizarre outfits,” he said in a 2017 HBO documentary. And while he didn’t always agree with her decisions, he plans to uphold the tradition: “I sure as hell am going to dress my kids up the same way.” Royal parents across the world seem to feel similarly. Here, a guide to the competition, from Japan’s Prince Hisahito to a Norwegian royal-turned-model.

For as long as Monaco’s crowned twins, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, have been in existence, the six-year-old twins have been color-coordinating. (Or at least their parents, Prince Jacques and Princess Charlene, have been doing so for them.)

But Princess Gabriella is already starting to stand out on her own.

Prince Hisahito of Japan tends to stay under the radar, but the young teen has stood out in both traditional and everyday wear.

Last but not least among the Swedes, Prince Alexander started wearing cardigans around the age of two.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is only two, but if he’s anything like his mom, Meghan Markle, his wardrobe will no doubt soon be on the map.
