Maxima wears the trousers
When it comes to royal style, Queen Maxima wears the trousers. This week's Royal Wardrobe asked why we don't see queens and princesses in trousers more often - it's one area where they're usually out of step with what's on trend. There was a poll, too, on the best royal pick of the week and that was won by Maxima.
The outfit that took her to the top of the poll was a trouser based combo chosen for King's Play Day, encouraging children to take up sport and exercise.
The grey, wide legged trousers are the stars here and quite right too. Not only are they rather chic, they're totally on trend. Bringing us back to the same question. When so many women wear trousers so often they're a wardrobe staple, why don't royals do the same?
