Red, blue and black

It's been a day of bright colours and bold choices for Europe's royal women. From the formality of a state event to the first day of school, there have been plenty of royal appearances. And all of them involved red, blue and lots of black.

Maxima of the Netherlands was the most eye catching, choosing bright red Valentino and adding a matching hat and shoes.

Queen Letizia was also in bold colours as she chose navy for a visit to a school in Pereiro de Aguiar.

Queen Mathilde of the Belgians went for blue and black in a striking geometric design as she visited a social project in Liege.

But it was Princess Marie of Denmark who really set the fashion pace as she chose an on trend leather look pleated skirt with geometric top for her visit to a UNESCO project in Copenhagen.

Crown Princess Victoria mixed bold and pastel when she opened a new exhibition about Pompeii at the Millesgarden Art Gallery.

More pale than bold but the outfit chosen by Victoria of Sweden mixed plenty of colours

And it was like daughter, like mother as Queen Silvia went for a similar colour combination when she helped King Carl XVI Gustaf host a diplomatic reception at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.  Her pale mauve suit featured bold maroon embroidered designs in a colour mix very similar to the one chosen by Victoria.
