28. Young Royal Boys Wear Shorts
There is a reason why Prince George exclusively wears shorts: Royal boys aren't allowed to wear trousers until around age 8, signaling manhood.

This tradition dated back to the 16th century, when young boys wore dresses until the age of 8. The same look has stuck, just instead of gowns, we now have shorts.
