Kate Middleton just touched down in Copenhagen, Denmark for her first solo tour since 2017. The Duchess of Cambridge began her two day visit with a trip to the University of Copenhagen to learn of the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project, which promotes positive relationships between children and their parents. For the engagement, the royal opted for a polished look that was both professional yet stylish (What else would you expect from Middleton?). Her red and white ensemble also gave a nod to the colors of the Denmark flag—a classy touch—and her blazer was a surprisingly affordable pick as well.

Middleton’s double-breasted blazer is by Zara, one of her most-worn fast fashion labels. Though her textured jacket—which she also wore to an England versus Germany game at Wembley last year—is currently sold out, there is a similar style on Zara’s website that currently retails for AED 330. She played into its dressiness by pairing it with a ruffled white blouse, black flared trousers, a sleek Aspinal of London handbag, and black stiletto pumps. The jacket, though, was a true Middleton signature: She’s no stranger to making the case for affordable style, having also worn budget-friendly pieces like Vejas sneakers in the past. She often re-wears pieces in her wardrobe too. And when it looks this regal, why shouldn’t she?

HM Queen Rania of Jordan recently paid a visit to the Tal Al Rumman Women’s Cooperative, which provides local women with skill-based employment opportunities. A long-time champion of women’s empowerment, especially within her country, the royal’s trip marked her show of support, as she stopped by various training sessions and areas of the organization to learn more about its economic and social programs.

The ensembles Queen Rania picks for royal engagements are always noteworthy, and spotlight her multifaceted, carefully curated wardrobe of luxury international designers, local and traditional craftsmanship, as well as high-street brands. This time, she opted for an affordable number from Zara, coincidentally in the same week as her fellow royal Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, who was spotted in a black turtleneck sweater from the Spanish retailer.

Not one to shy away from color, Queen Rania wore a wool shirt jacket in mauve, nearly channeling the Pantone Color of the Year, ‘Very Peri’. The structured jacket was worn buttoned up and lightly cinched at the waist with a belt. Offering her take on high-low dressing, the royal paired the Zara piece with black straight trousers from Alexander McQueen, and Nike sneakers. With minimally styled hair, Queen Rania’s wavy tresses were parted sideways and pinned behind her ears in a faux half-up-half-down way.

Videos and images shared on the royal’s Instagram account showed her taking a tour of the organization and interacting with the craftswomen. “Enjoying Tal Al Rumman’s beautiful nature and the company of its amazing people,” she captioned a photo of her holding a wooden piece presumably created by one of the women at Tal Al Rumman. Founded in 2017 and located in Balqa Governorate, it is the sole community-based organization in the village and offers women skill-specific training sessions in cooking, embroidery, sewing, baking, and dairy production.
