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?

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.
