It’s been a busy year for the British royal family. Between the flurry of royal babies and royal weddings, it’s about time the famous relatives got together for a good old family day out – and Trooping the Colour 2018 is fixing up to be the perfect setting. The annual event is hosted in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II ‘s birthday, where Her Majesty has a chance to inspect her troops before joining the senior members of the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
From Prince George's first birthday to Prince Louis' debut photograph, take a look inside the Cambridge's official family photo album.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been spotted together in public for the first time – and they’re feeling festive too, it seems, as the couple were buying a Christmas tree. According to Christmas tree growers and retailers Pines and Needles, the pair visited their stall located inside Battersea Park on Monday. The store’s finance and IT manager Dominic Wilkus told Yahoo! Style UK that the couple bought a Nordmann Fir – a variety known for its soft, non-drop needles – and that once the staff recognised who they were gave them a bunch of mistletoe and holly too.
The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge arrived in Canada just a day ago for their royal tour, and the couple have already been busy with day two of their many public engagements. Upon the royal couple’s arrival just after 4pm in Vancouver (midnight over here in the UK), the Duchess went for an elegant outfit in a blue Jenny Packham dress teamed with a Locke and Co hat - finishing off the look with the Queen’s own sparkling maple leaf diamond.
Or perhaps not, because as the rest of us melt in whatever clothes we’ve mustered together, the Duchess of Cambridge has managed to look both elegant and summery for her visit to Luton today. The dress is from the Duchess’ long-time favourite high street store L.K. Bennett, and cost £245 at the time. Kate originally wore the dress at an Air Force base in Amberley on the royal tour of Australia in 2014.
From power shoulders to princess-perfect gowns, the female members of the British royal family have sported some unforgettable ensembles in the last fifty years or so. Who could forget Princess Diana’s collaborative wedding dress? Or Kate’s near-naked catwalk appearance? We’ve taken a fond look back over the most memorable royal fashion moments - see if you remember them all.
Firstly, let’s acknowledge that the Queen’s birthday garb was fantastic. Or you can at least say, if you weren’t such a fan, that it was eye-catching. The internet certainly thought the latter, but not for reasons you might have thought. Think about it - what does that near-blinding green glow remind you of?
Last night, the British royal family - and some very lucky guests - donned their finest gear for an evening of schmoozing in the garden at Buckingham Palace, in celebrate of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
When news broke last month that dresses worn by Princess Diana, the Queen and Princess Margaret were set to be displayed in an iconic exhibition at Kensington Palace, we were ever-so-slightly [read: ridiculously thrilled] by the prospect of drooling all over the exquisite frocks donned by some of Britain’s most fashion-forward royals. After all, Princess Diana was known for her enviable wardrobe, the Queen has always dressed impeccably for every occasion and Princess Margaret was quite possibly the most style-savvy royal of all time. And after perusing the items on display, we weren’t disappointed. Not one bit.
