WATCH: Princess Charlotte's cutest moments through the years

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's five-year-old daughter is renowned for wearing hand-smocked dresses with Mary Jane shoes. We know fashion trends come around time and time again, but we wonder if Prince William and Kate took inspiration from some archive pictures?

Princess Beatrice, then aged 18 months old, was pictured outside The Portland Hospital in London (above), as she arrived to meet her newborn baby sister Princess Eugenie in March 1990. The Princess looked adorable in a blue and red hand-smocked dress with puffed sleeves and a Peter Pan collar. She also wore white tights and red Mary Jane shoes.
