Meghan Meghan wants to “break with tradition” and “reflect the modern woman” and it has to do with the way she raises her son or daughter. The Sun’s sources claim that Meghan will continue breaking royal protocol when her child is born. A source said: “She’s determined her child won’t be paraded around in little shorts like Prince George.”

Etiquette expert William Hanson, says that when it comes to little boys pants are seen as “suburban”, whereas shorts are a sign of class. He clarifies, though, that he doubts that there “would have been a memo sent around Kensington Palace telling George to wear shorts”, but Kate is very aware of the tradition and the protocol.

He adds: “I don’t think that the sartorial rule of shorts for young boys would be a new one for Catherine. Not only does The Duchess of Cambridge have to worry about dressing herself but she has to dress her own children appropriately. She has to find a balance between royal tradition, heritage and more proletariat customs, such as the ‘suburban’ habit of making young boys wear trousers.”
