Prince William rarely steps out in casual attire, and when he does it's typically a baby blue button-down and khakistopped with a belt. On a recent trip to Japan, the father of trendsetting baby George attended a traditional Japanese Ryokan with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. For the event, the royal posed in a Yukata, dining in the customary garb right after. Finally, the royal feet get some fresh air. The future King of England also took a Japanese King's costume for a spin.
