The Royal Wardrobe

The Easter holidays have meant a quiet week on the royal front but we've still had some treats of outfits including gala looks, full length gowns and super sharp tailoring. OK, there was still a lot of grey but it is on trend and bursts of colour are starting to break through. Here are the six outfits that make up this week's Royal Wardrobe.

Letizia first wore this grey outfit in November when Queen Rania visited Spain and it came out of the Royal Wardrobe again this week for a visit to the University of Salamance and guess what? It's still fabulous. 

The colour might be muted but this look just screams style - it is sharp, chic and only needs the minimal accessories which the Queen of Spain added. This royal style icon is picking up speed as spring gets under way.

There was more grey from Queen Mathilde this week in another repeat that is worth seeing again every time. This bright yellow and dark grey outfit is a bit of a favourite for Mathilde but she always wears it well and it looked super smart on this occassion as well. It might have been better to lose the sheer tights but overall this look is a winner.

Queen Sonja gave us some monochrome magic on her State Visit to Italy this week. For day two, the Norwegian consort chose a stylish take on black and white with a dark skirt and a two tone jacket that ended in a delicate neckline. It was royal spring fashion at its very best and perfect for a busy day of mixed engagements. Rather lovely.

  Her last big gala look wasn't the biggest success this week Charlotte Casiraghi went to New York and her dress was so good we could see it more than twice. The sparkling yellow gown worn for the Montblanc anniversary gala dinner was a stunner and then some from its super silver embellishments to the clever texturing of the fabric. The hair was great, the necklace was great, the whole thing was just, well, great. Charlotte is back on form.

Kate got a new dress in the week, in case you missed it. Full length, sheer panels, Saloni? Yep, that's the one. It's become so famous that it feels like we've known about it forever rather than three days and familiarity is probably a good thing with this one as it was a bit of a crowd divider on its debut. It's rather pretty although the collar is a bit over the top but it was the choice of long for an early evening event that got a lot of people talking. However, this dress gives us a big clue as to what has gone into the royal suitcases for India - don't expect much royal recycling this time round.

And you can catch up with the Royal Wardrobe for the whole of 2016 here.
