Princess Charlotte and Prince George joined their father today for the start of a half-marathon on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk. Brian, a gentleman running in the race, tweeted a photo of the children and their father.

We also saw a new photo of the Duke with his three children as part of a Father’s Day message posted on social media (new image is in the lower-left corner).

Multiple reports say the Duchess of Cambridge took the previously unreleased photo at Trooping the Colour in 2019.
Today was the first annual Run Sandringham, with a Half-Marathon, 5K, and Community Mile Fun Run. The races are fundraisers for a number of charities, including East Anglian Air Ambulance, where Prince William was a pilot, and EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices), of which Kate is patron.
More from this Eastern Daily Press story:
William, George and Charlotte arrived just before the half marathon got under way. They walked to the stage holding hands, before sending runners on their way.
They Royals’ arrival was a secret known only to race organisers beforehand. The trio are believed to be staying at nearby Anmer Hall.
Surprised participants took selfies of William, George and Charlotte, who waved, clapped and shouted encouragement as runners set off from the starting line on three different routes through the pine woods and the lanes.

Now for a look at what Prince George and Princess Charlotte wore. It looks like Prince George was in a Checked Cotton Shirt ($66) by Il Gufo. The shirt is 100% cotton with a classic button-down collar and long sleeves with vented button cuffs. Thank you to Pauline for her shirt ID! In a Tattler story, Il Gufo is described as “An Italian family-run business founded in 1980, with family values and a passion for not just beautifully made children’s clothing, but an ethos to ‘dress children like children.’”
Pauline also identified the shorts Prince George appeared to be wearing, a pair from a Duchess favorite, Boden.
The Chino Shorts ($40) in College Navy are 98% cotton with 2% elastane for stretch. Below, closeups of the front pocket, the contrast stitching on the center back belt loop, a back pocket and Boden button, and the ribbon detail at the waistband. The short is offered in six other colors.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were both wearing the Nike Revolution 5 Flyease sneaker, with thanks to Laura for her ID of Charlotte’s shoes and Pauline for suggesting George was wearing the same style.
The Princess wore the Cotton-Blend Fleece Sweatshirt ($27.83 with promo code DAD) a sweatshirt by Ralph Lauren. The piece has puffed sleeves and ribbing at the neckline, hem, and cuffs.
There is a similar style in the same color ($25.31 with promo code DAD), but it has buttons on the left shoulder, which I did not see on Charlotte’s sweatshirt. Beneath the sweatshirt, Princess Charlotte wore a blouse or top that is not yet identified; it looks like it has small polka dots and a delicately bordered collar. UPDATE JUNE 27: With thanks to Bojana for a fab find, the Princess was wearing a polo shirt by Next, one of a 3-Pack Polo Tops ($28, now sold out).
The tops are 100% cotton, and in addition to the bordered collar, they have short, puffed sleeves and a three-button front placket.
The style has distinctive front pockets shaped like hearts, standard back pockets, and an elastic waist.
Both children wore navy blue socks, but I don’t want to guess what brand they are. If I learn anything more about Charlotte’s top, I will update the post.
