Stylish sun protection = sorted.

best kids' sunglasses

Of course we're happy that it's summer, but you have to admit there's quite a bit of admin involved, especially when you throw kids into the mix. From children-friendly sun cream to hot-weather clothes that won't break the bank, there always seems to be something missing from the bottom of your (Mary Poppins) bag.

And on Sunday, we were reminded of another one courtesy of the Cambridges. For Father's Day, the family dug up an old snap from last year's trip to Jordan - and eagle-eyed followers have spotted a pair of sunglasses clasped in the hand of Princess Charlotte. Sunglasses! An absolute essential when it comes to summer outings with the kids, but where to find the best ones?

Babiators are the gold-standard when it comes to the best kids' sunglasses (I mean, the name is enough to make anyone want a pair for the cute-factor alone). John Lewis & Partners' win for affordability at just £6, while J.Crew's, with their flower-shaped lenses in rather chic tortoiseshell, are sure to start a new trend at the playground.
