The Royal Wardrobe: State Visit Style belongs to Mathilde

The Queen of the Belgians strikes again. In a poll to find the favourite Spring State Visit Style of 2017, it was Mathilde who came out top.

The wardrobe that took her to the top of the poll was worn in Denmark over two days during the State Visit she made there with her husband, King Philippe, at the end of March. Her selections - pale blue and pale pink for the day with orange and scarlet for the evening - saw her just pip Queen Letizia and Crown Princess Mary and take the State Visit poll.

Mathilde's outfits are now on the main Royal Wardrobe page which features all the poll winners in 2017 so far.

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.
