The Royal Wardrobe: and so into spring

A lot of this week involved the question - what will go in the Royal Wardrobe this week? And then Crown Princess Victoria rocked two spring looks in eight hours and the question became - can she go in twice? Read on to find out - here are five great looks from the royal week just gone and it all starts with Queen Mathilde of the Belgians on a boat.

Mathilde chose Armani Prive for her visit to Ostend to launch a boat and we're all glad she did. This pale grey coat is just perfect from the shaping at the top to the slight fan at the bottom of the hem. Add in a gorgeous little hat and cream gloves and you have a queen of looks for this week. Fabulous.

Crown Princess Victoria chose a pretty white floral print dress for a reception by the Royal Artistic Academies for her dad's 70th birthday and wowed while she was at it. It's very spring like with its sprigs of flowers and lace effect top and as the sun shone in Stockholm, this princess looked particularly great. A winner from Victoria.

You'd expect a stellar outfit from a royal who is patron of a fashion institution on a visit to that very place and the Countess of Wessex didn't disappoint this week. Sophie headed to the London College of Fashion - two of their sites in fact - and chose a standout white coat for the occasion. Add in a think black belt and a white polo neck and you have royal style excellence. A great look.

She'd set herself a hard act to follow with her amazing King's Day outfit of 2015 but while 2016 wasn't quite on that level, the Schiaparelli inspired look from Queen Maxima this time round was still pretty special. The skirt is a wonder all on its own while the splash of pink in the top and the shoes is just rather lovely. And while the cardigan was slightly too informal to send this one into the style stratosphere, it was freezing cold and Maxima still looks fabulous.  

Well, of course Victoria can be in the countdown twice. Her second outfit on that fashion fabulous day was a bold and brilliant bronze and black evening look. We had a T-shirt style top with statement necklace and a stunner of a skirt that channeled the Fifties vibe started by Maxima. And we had a fitted waist as the focus of the dress. Any woman showing how confident she is in her looks so soon after having a baby is a style icon and then some. Victoria's confidence takes this from gorgeous to great - she looks amazing.
