LONDON — It’s been a busy month for the British royal family — the Jubilee weekend earlier this month was a four-day celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s seven-decade reign where everyone came together, from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.The family hasn’t stopped working, and is now making up for lost time after a major pause in their working schedules due to the pandemic. On Monday, they gathered together once again at Windsor Castle for the first Garter Day celebrations since 2019.
Garter Day is the oldest Order of Chivalry in the U.K. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Sir Tony Blair and Baroness Amos were installed as members of the Order of the Garter on Monday.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a vivid ultramarine blue coat dress by Catherine Walker, a favorite designer of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, who wore Walker’s designs from 1981 until her death in 1997.

The duchess paired the ensemble with a matching fascinator from the London-based milliner Juliette Botterill that retails for 560 pounds; a scalloped clutch bag, and Aquazzura slingback heels that complemented her deep blue sapphire engagement ring, which previously belonged to Diana.
In addition, Middleton was wearing her matching set of pear-shaped sapphires — earrings and necklace — that resemble the famous engagement ring.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, was also in attendance, wearing a bubblegum pink Valentino dress with long pink sleeves. She paired it with a cream fascinator and nude pumps. Her wardrobe choice might take many by surprise as the countess has long been a consistent champion of British designers.
During the Jubilee weekend, the countess wore labels including Suzannah and Me+Em. This marks her big designer breakout, and sees her joining the ranks of Markle, who regularly wears Dior, and Middleton, whose closet is filled with Alexander McQueen.
Camilla was accompanied by her husband Prince Charles during the parade at St George’s Chapel. She wore the traditional ceremonial attire that’s made up of a velvet robe with white bows at the shoulder, a rope tassel worn around the neck and a navy slouched hat with a flat brim with feathers attached.
Queen Elizabeth was not in attendance with the rest of the royal family, but she later joined them behind-the-scenes for lunch and the investiture ceremony.

12 Pictures That Prove Queen Elizabeth II Was The Original Outfit Repeater

12 Pictures That Prove Queen Elizabeth II Was The Original Outfit Repeater

Photo: Getty
The Duchess of Cambridge is known for re-wearing pieces from her own wardrobe – but long before Kate Middleton emerged on the public stage, the Queen was already making a point of repeating past looks. Back in the 1960s, the monarch re-wore her custom-made gowns at high-profile events, including the Norman Hartnell dress that Princess Beatrice borrowed for her wedding day in 2020.
The Queen’s personal dresser, Angela Kelly, has previously explained how the royal’s repeat-wears are always carefully considered. “Typically, the lifespan of an outfit can be up to around 25 years,” Kelly wrote in her book The Other Side Of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser And The Wardrobe. “Her Majesty is always thrifty and likes her clothes to be adapted and recycled as much as possible… After two or three outings, a piece will have become familiar to the media, so we will either look for ways to modify it or it will become something that is worn on private holidays at Balmoral or Sandringham.”
On the accessories front, the Queen has carried her trusty Launer handbags since the late 1960s, with the brand’s CEO Gerald Bodmer revealing how the monarch will often get her collection repaired, rather than buying new styles. When it comes to buying investment pieces that will stand the test of time, Her Majesty has set the ultimate example.

Below, see the Queen’s best repeat outfits over the years.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have touched down at the U.K. premiere of Top Gun: Maverick.
On May 19, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a screening of the Top Gun sequel starring Tom Cruise at Leicester Square in London, England. Middleton walked the red carpet wearing a black-and-white off-shoulder gown by Roland Mouret that was perfectly complemented by her husband’s classic black tuxedo. The Duchess kept her neck bare and her loose, straight hair away from her face to showcase a par of dainty starburst diamond earrings.
While Prince William kept his look relatively simple, he snuck in one nod to the Top Gun franchise on his velvet shoes, which featured a jet plane design. Prince William previously served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force, as did his brother, Prince Harry.
The film’s star, Tom Cruise, reportedly feels he has “a lot in common” with the Duke of Sussex. “We both love England and we’re both aviators, we both love flying,” Cruise said on the red carpet, per My London.

According to reports, this isn’t the first time Prince William and Kate Middleton have viewed the sequel to the 1986 classic film about a band of elite fighter pilots. In the 2022 sequel, Maverick (Cruise) makes his return to the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School to shepherd a new group of airmen, including the son of his late best friend, Goose (Anthony Edwards), played by Teller. Cruise had reportedly invited the couple to an even more private screening in March after hearing Prince William was a fan of the original film.

The Most Dazzling Jewelry Moments From Each Decade Of The Queen’s Reign

The Most Dazzling Jewelry Moments From Each Decade Of The Queen’s Reign

Photo: Getty
This year, Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee, the first British monarch in history to reach such a milestone. Seven decades have passed since the death of her father, King George VI, during which she has earned a reputation not only of devotion to the monarchy and her people, but also as one of the best dressed women of our time.
None of the Queen’s outfits would be complete without her jewelry, however – from historic gems passed down from queen to queen through the centuries to recently acquired jewels. In the daytime, she is almost never seen without a pearl necklace, glittering brooch, and pearl earrings. For formal evening events, a necklace or tiara will be pulled out from the vault.
Despite having access to an awe-inspiring number of jewels, the Queen views them casually as being part of her uniform. Her sister, Princess Margaret, once marveled that Her Majesty was the only woman she knew who could put on her own tiara while walking down the stairs to attend an event.

Here, Vogue highlights key jewelry moments from each decade of the Queen’s 70-year reign.

For the actual moment of crowning, the gold St Edward’s Crown was used, but was then switched for the Imperial State Crown for the rest of the day. The Imperial State Crown was designed by Rundell, Bridge & Rundell for Queen Victoria in 1839. It is set with several historic stones: St Edward’s sapphire, Queen Elizabeth I’s pearl earrings, The Black Prince’s ruby, the Stuart sapphire and The Cullinan II. It was remade by Garrard in 1937 to be lightened for King George VI, but still weighs 2.3 pounds.
The Queen has spoken about the weight of the crown when worn during the State Opening of Parliament. “You can’t look down to read the speech – you have to take the speech up. Because if you did, your neck would break, or it would fall off. So there are some disadvantages to crowns, but otherwise they’re quite important things.”
The necklace and earrings worn that day are appropriately known as The Coronation Necklace and Earrings. In the 1850s, Queen Victoria had to return a number of Hanoverian heirlooms to her cousin the King of Hanover, including her grandmother Queen Charlotte’s diamond necklace. As a replacement, Queen Victoria had this new necklace and earrings created by dismantling jewels from “swords and useless things” belonging to King George III.

The Lover’s Knot Tiara was made by Garrard in 1913 for Queen Mary using stones from a tiara she was given for her wedding. Queen Mary had a passion for jewels, especially those with family history, so she had Garrard copy the design from a tiara belonging to her grandmother Princess Augusta, which was inherited by her aunt. The Queen inherited the tiara from Queen Mary in 1953 and later famously gave it to Diana, Princess of Wales as a wedding present. It’s now worn by Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.
The necklace worn by the Queen was a Golden Jubilee gift to Queen Victoria from a committee called The Women’s Jubilee Offering. Originally the committee hoped to raise £10,000 to create a statue of Prince Albert, but when more than £84,000 of donations poured in, the committee set aside £5,000 to purchase this necklace from Carrington & Co. Queen Victoria designated this piece as an heirloom of the Crown.
The earrings worn by the Queen are from Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Parure, given to Queen Alexandra by King Edward VII for their wedding in 1863. The diamond bracelet on the Queen’s wrist was a wedding present from Prince Philip. Philip had used diamonds from a tiara given to him by his mother, Princess Alice of Greece, to design a bracelet and engagement ring for his future wife. The Queen has worn the bracelet frequently throughout her reign but in recent years has loaned it to the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Vladimir Tiara was made for Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, wife of Grand Duke Vladimir in the 1870s. Designed as a row of interlocking diamond circles with pearl pendants, it is believed to have been made by Bolin, and often graced the head of the Grand Duchess during her famous parties. The Grand Duchess was forced to flee Russia during the Russian Revolution, leaving her jewels behind hidden in a secret compartment in her St Petersburg palace. Eventually, on behalf of the Grand Duchess, a British officer dressed as a worker snuck into the palace, retrieved the Grand Duchess’s famous collection of jewels, and returned them to her once out of the country.
After the Grand Duchess’s death in 1920, her children sold part of her collection, this tiara being purchased by Queen Mary. Once in London, the tiara was repaired, having been damaged during the escape from Russia, and Queen Mary had the pearl drops made interchangeable with the Cambridge Emeralds: a collection of emeralds inherited from her grandmother Princess Augusta (who won them in a lottery in Frankfurt shortly after her marriage in 1818).
The Queen inherited the tiara in 1953 and enjoys wearing the drops interchangeably. On occasion, she will go for an all-diamond look and wear the tiara without any drops. The necklace and earrings were made by Garrard for Queen Mary to wear at the 1911 Delhi Durbar using some of the Cambridge Emeralds.
The Dorset Bow Brooch is pinned to the Queen’s sash. It was a wedding present to Queen Mary in 1893 from the County of Dorset. Queen Mary later gave it to the Queen as a wedding present in 1947.

Here, the Queen is wearing the oldest set of jewelry in her collection, the Kent Amethyst Parure. The parure belonged to Princess Victoria, Queen Victoria’s mother. Consisting of a necklace, earrings, three brooches, and a pair of side combs, the parure was made an heirloom of the Crown by Queen Victoria. The parure is vary rarely worn, but the Queen enjoys wearing the brooches. On one occasion in 1902, Queen Alexandra wore the necklace cascading down the skirt of her dress.
The tiara worn here is the Queen’s favorite, referred to affectionately as Granny’s Tiara. The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland presented this to Queen Mary in 1893 as a wedding present. The tiara is designed with diamond festoons and scrolls on a detachable diamond base. It was originally topped with pearls, but these were removed and used to create the Lover’s Knot Tiara. The Queen has worn this tiara most frequently, and it is probably her most recognizable piece, being featured on currency around the world.

The necklace and earrings worn here are some of the Queen’s most cherished jewels. Her father King George VI purchased them from Carrington & Co in 1947 and gave them to her as a wedding present. In the 1960s, the Queen found she was without a sapphire tiara, and in 1963, she purchased this one at auction. Her diamond and sapphire bracelet was acquired the same year, completing the parure.
The brooch pinned to the Queen’s sash is the Albert Sapphire Brooch and was given to Queen Victoria by Prince Albert on the eve of their wedding in 1840. Queen Victoria recorded in her diary, “My precious Albert gave me a splendid and lovely brooch of an immense sapphire, set round with diamonds; it is quite beautiful.” Queen Victoria designated this piece as an heirloom of the Crown, and it has been worn by every Queen since.

Prince Philip was stationed with the Royal Navy in Malta between 1949 and 1951, and on her visits there, the Queen was able to briefly experience life as any other newlywed wife. Prince Philip’s cousin Lady Pamela Hicks recalled, “The Queen really loved living in Malta because she was able to lead a normal life, wander through the towns and go shopping. It was the only place that she was able to live the life of a naval officer’s wife, just like all the other wives.”
Prince Albert designed the Oriental Circlet Tiara, which was made in 1853 for Queen Victoria, who designated it as an heirloom of the Crown. Originally, the tiara was set with opals but Queen Alexandra believed opals to be unlucky and had them replaced with rubies. The tiara was a favorite of the Queen Mother, so much so that the Queen allowed her to retain it after ascending the throne when it should have been passed on.
The Queen’s necklace is known as the Baring Ruby Necklace, as it was acquired from the Baring Collection in 1964. She paired this set of jewels with Queen Mary’s Ruby Earrings. The earrings, which consist of large rubies surrounded by nine diamonds, were a birthday present to Queen Mary from King George V in 1926.

The Burmese Ruby Tiara was created by Garrard for the Queen in 1973. The rubies used in the tiara were from a necklace presented to the Queen as a wedding present from the Burmese people. The necklace consisted of 96 rubies, which by Burmese custom would protect the wearer from the 96 diseases that can afflict a human. The diamonds used in the tiara were taken from another wedding gift, a tiara from the Nizam of Hyderabad. The new tiara is designed as a wreath of ruby roses, inspired by the Tudor rose, connected by diamond and ruby sprays.
The necklace and earrings worn by the Queen were made for Queen Victoria and originally set with opals instead of rubies. They were left as heirlooms of the Crown by Queen Victoria. Queen Alexandra had the opals replaced with rubies in 1902.
Her outfit is completed with the diamond-studded insignia of the Order of the Garter and the Family Orders of King George V and King George VI. Royal Family Orders are given to female family members by the monarch and feature their miniature portrait in a diamond frame on a silk ribbon.

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?

Middleton’s trip also honors Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee year. The duchess’ trip comes just a few days after it was revealed that the queen has contracted COVID-19 and is experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms. On Tuesday, the queen canceled her virtual meetings due to her symptoms.

The queen’s diagnosis came days after it was announced that her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, also tested positive for COVID-19.
Middleton, known for recycling her outfits, has previously worn the red tweed Zara jacket on other recent occasions, including in June at the Euro 2020 Game with Prince William and Prince George.
During her trip to Denmark, Middleton will also meet with Queen Margrethe II, who is celebrating her own Jubilee this year to mark 50 years on the throne.

20 Pictures That Celebrate HRH Princess Margaret’s Incredible Style on the 20th Anniversary of Her Death

20 Pictures That Celebrate HRH Princess Margaret’s Incredible Style on the 20th Anniversary of Her Death

HRH Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon’s pioneering style paved the way for Diana, Princess of Wales to don the candy-colored confections of tweed twin sets we know and love. The perfect recipe of elegance, grace and high octane glamour has allowed the younger generation of royals rules to follow in her footsteps of fashion. The ‘Margaret look’ has always been on-the-nose of modern design.
It was Margaret who bought couturier Christian Dior into the forefront of the press, thanks to the decadent dress she wore on her 21st birthday, carefully selected from a private show for the Queen Mother and sister, the then Princess Elizabeth. Captured by Cecil Beaton in his signature lavish elan, the frothy layered tulle cream ballgown has since become an emblem of Dior, couture and sovereign style worldwide with countless references still rife on the runways decades later.
Her petite frame lent perfectly to the mod riffs of the swinging Sixties as mini skirts and A-line dresses became all the rage. In the Seventies, her penchant for swirling prints became a masterclass in how to wear patterns, and the frou-frou fabulousness of puffed shoulders and scintillating satins during the Eighties had never looked so good as when the princess presented them. This keen attention to current trends led many to laud her as the most fashion-intellectual royal of all time.
While being the younger sister may have meant she missed out on becoming Queen, Margaret certainly ruled the social scene. Always impeccably dressed alongside the likes of Sophia Loren, The Beatles and society’s most stunning starlets, Margaret’s discerning and trend-focused tastes always celebrated the finest fashions of the moment. Even into her later years, suffering from multiple health issues, the Princess donned informed and inspiring style choices.
An angel of Ascot, a red carpet maven, and a style icon in the highest regard; long live the fashion reign of Princess Margaret.

Kate Middleton Just Rewore Another Iconic Dress for an Outing With Her In-Laws

Kate Middleton might be the Duchess of Cambridge, but she’s just like us in that she loves to shop her own closet. On Thursday, February 3, the royal rewore a recycled tweed dress for a public outing with her in-laws Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. In a rare occurrence, Prince William was not in attendance.

Kate Middleton rewore the Catherine Walker gray tweed dress for a visit on of behalf of The Prince’s Foundation—Prince Charles’ foundation which supports the arts—in London. The dress falls to her knees, has long sleeves, and is fitted in the bodice with an A-line skirt that expands below the waist. The dress also has a few key details that make it memorable: a bold, black collar, and a belt at the waist with a black square buckle. The Duchess paired the look with a small black handbag, opaque black tights, and black pointed-toe heels. She wore her hair in a halfway updo with circular silver and black drop earrings and a ring.

And below, you can see the last time Kate Middleton wore the Catherine Walker dress, back in 2019 at the Foundling Museum:

In 2019, Middleton styled the dress similarly with black tights, a black bag, and black pointed-toe heels, but the outfit has a different vibe due to her hair, which she wore down with a side part and curls.
Back in November 2021, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Royal Variety Performance in London. For the event, Middleton rewore an iconic emerald green Jenny Packham gown that she originally wore during a tour of Pakistan back in 2019. The striking green glittery column dress with long sleeves is definitely something even the Duchess of Cambridge wants to wear again and again.
