Five-Year-Old Boy Banned From Playgroup For Wearing A Princess Dress

Should little boys be able to dress up as a princess? One playgroup seems to think not…

Georgina Clarke from Rugby, Warwickshire, has revealed that her five-year-old son Romeo has been banned from his church playgroup.

But he wasn’t being difficult or disruptive – he was wearing a princess dress.


The tot was allegedly asked to leave the group because he upsets and confuses the other children, reports the Mail Online. We wonder if the same would have happened if it a girl wore a pirate costume…

Romeo has a wardrobe most would be envious of – boasting a collection of over 100 dresses and pink clothing items, in addition to eight pairs of high heel shoes that he loves wearing.

‘He’s just a boy who loves dresses,’ says Georgina. ‘I’m used to it now, it’s just him.’

And, as we all know, it’s pretty tricky to convince your tot not to wear ust what he thinks best.

Do you let you little one wear whatever they want? Let us know in the comments box below.
