A royal style file: Queen Elizabeth's most majestic looks through the ages

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor (aka the Queen) turns 91 today. She has reigned for 65 years, making her Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

Queen Elizabeth has been in power through some trying times – all while always looking the part in a colourful two-piece and a big hat. So we reckon it’s time we applauded her unwavering style, which may not always be on trend but is always on point.

From pearl necklaces to pristine white gloves, headscarves and plaid skirts, the Queen’s become something of a style icon throughout her decades on the throne, with the likes of Agyness Deyn and Dolce & Gabbana naming her Majesty as their fashion inspiration.

As the monarch celebrates her first birthday of the year, revisit her stylish reign.
