One question, one clear answer. This week's Royal Wardrobe poll asked which outfit best summed up the idea of regal dressing in 2017 and the winner was the Countess of Wessex.

Sophie was the clear victor in this week's survey. The outfit was the red and black print dress with statement hat worn to the service for the unveiling of the Iraq and Afghanistan Memorial in London on March 9th 2017.

We've seen this before from Sophie but what really made it stand out this time round was how well it matched the sense of occasion. When image means so much and social media sends photos of royalty around the world in seconds, getting it right has never been more important. Sophie's poll win shows she's got it off to a tee.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
