Prince Louis was spotted wearing his big brother's hand-me-downs on Friday night as he joined his family for a night at the theatre.

The two-year-old looked adorable as he strolled along the red carpet outside The London Palladium in the West End, wearing a smart blue jacket that used to be worn by Prince George.

George was first spotted in the £85 coat back in 2017 when he wore it to the Queen's Christmas Lunch.

The 'Austrian wool' jacket is still available to buy from Amaiakids, and is described as a "stylish Dutch blue with navy piping details. Very warm yet very elegant and lightweight".

All three of the Cambridge children – Louis, George and Princess Charlotte – joined their parents, Prince William and Catherine Middleton, for a special performance of Pantoland hosted by The National Lottery for key workers and their families.

The outing marked the first red carpet engagement for the family of five.

George looked very smart in his red and navy striped jumper, while Charlotte, five, wore a sweet tartan dress and black tights.

As the family took their seats inside the theatre, all three children watched their father address the audience as he made a speech ahead of the performance.

William paid a touching tribute to "national treasure" Dame Barbara Windsor, who died "peacefully" on Thursday night at the age of 83 following a long battle with Alzheimer's.

"Before I go on, I want to pause and pay tribute to a true national treasure, Dame Barbara Windsor, who so sadly passed away last night," William said.

"She was a giant of the entertainment world, and of course a legend on pantomime stages across the country including here at the London Palladium. And I know we'll all miss her hugely."
