Royal Baby, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge


While pregnant Kate Middleton gets most of the fashion attention, her husband Prince William has had major style moments too.

The couple is currently awaiting the birth of their first child, although Prince William has participated in a busy summer party season. The royal was spotted in June at the wedding of good friend Thomas van Straubenzee (to Lady Melissa Percy), joined by younger brother Prince Harry and sister-in-law Pippa Middleton. The wedding festivities also marked William's birthday weekend—the Prince turned 31.

More recently, the Duke of Cambridge has been hard at work: putting in extra shifts as a search-and-rescue pilot at RAF Valley in Anglesey. With Kate due to give birth this weekend, it has been reported that the helicopter for William's arrival to London left the Anglesey farmhouse where it has been on standby since last Friday.  

William's formal style is very stately: the royal prefers simple suits, often in shades of blue, with formal or military attire for ceremonial events. In his downtime, the prince goes for jeans, button-downs or collared tees and sneakers. We can imagine that he may be even more casual once the baby arrives (because spit up and three-piece suits don't quite go).

And William was also a fashionable tot—often dressed in coordinating suits with Prince Harry. He was already a cute child, but his dandy get-ups make his baby photos that much more adorable! It stands to say that if William and Kate dress their little one as dapper as William was when he was a boy (or as chic as Kate, if they have a girl), the royal baby will be one stylish newborn.

As an adult, the prince's style grew more streamlined, with well-tailored suits, tuxedos and the occasional polo uniform. We love his double-breasted tuxedo look from the "Our Greatest Team Rises" Olympic Concert in May, as well as a fitted navy suit and tie combo at Queen Elizabeth II's coronation anniversary ceremony at Westminster Abbey on June 4.

And who could forget William's wedding look? His Irish Guards colonel's uniform was made by military tailors Kashket and Partners, who ensured the Prince's majestic crimson coat would be chic and sweat-proof. The Prince has dressed notably sharper since marrying Kate—and we can't complain!

What do you think of Prince William's style?
