Queen Rania to Princess Diana: 34 Times Fashion-Forward Royals Made a Case for Stripes

Queen Rania to Princess Diana: 34 Times Fashion-Forward Royals Made a Case for Stripes

The trusted stripe has long been a style staple. Coco Chanel’s early confections of nautical chic often favored the effortless elegance of a Breton stripe, Jean Paul Gaultier continues to be inspired by the striped uniforms of sailors which serve as an emblem of his label, and American designer Tommy Hilfiger still pledges patriotic allegiance in his collections adorned with stars and stripes each season.
It’s no surprise then, that our favorite European royals have been known to don the tried-and-tested print on glamorous outings and VIP events. From Diana, Princess of Wales’s impeccable 1980s skirt suits, to Princess Alexandra of Hanover resplendent in Giambattista Valli haute couture at this year’s Rose Ball in Monaco, these sovereign superstars make a strong case for looking fine in straight lines.

The Duchess of Sussex is known for her polished style with a personable edge. From waving the flag for sustainable fashion in brands like Stella McCartney and Gabriela Hearst, to doubling down on glamour in Givenchy and Emilia Wickstead, Meghan Markle knows how to make a statement with her sartorial choices. Her summer style is just as unforgettable.
Whether wearing a lightweight Veronica Beard shirt dress while on a royal tour in Cape Town, or a tailored jacket with straight-leg blue jeans for a more casual day, the Duchess’s warm-weather ensembles prove that her style credentials are as versatile as they come.
Below, the best summer outfits the Duchess of Sussex has worn to date.

The Duchess of Sussex kicked off her week the right way in chic summer workwear. Walking arm in arm with Prince Harry at the UN General Assembly in New York, she dressed for the occasion in a figure-hugging pocketed midi-skirt, a crew-neck top, black Manolo Blanhik BB pumps, a gold Cartier Tank Française watch – the same timepiece beloved by Princess Diana – and a Mulberry Bayswater tote.
Hours later, for lunch with feminist leader Gloria Steinem at the Crosby Street Hotel in SoHo, she continued her smart streak in tailored navy Bermuda shorts from Dior, which she cinched at the waist with a tan Ralph Lauren belt. She teamed her city shorts with a white blouse and another pair of her beloved Manolo BBs – this time in a tan shade. The Duchess swapped her does-it-all Mulberry Bayswater bag for a beaded pouch from Cult Gaia.
The Duchess and Steinem recently took part in a conversation with award-winning journalist and founder of News Not Noise, Jessica Yellin, to speak about the terrifying overturn of Roe v Wade. In the discussion, published by British Vogue, the three women considered the impact of the ruling and the future implications of what this could mean for the rights to same-sex marriage, same-sex relationships and contraception.
When asked by Yellin what this moment requires, the Duchess responded: “Unity – really listening to people, understanding the Constitution was written at a time when women were second-class citizens. We’re not. Certain things need to change.”

The Duchess of Sussex has had a whirlwind trip to New York so far, beginning with an appearance at the United Nations, then a meeting with Gloria Steinem, and lastly, dinner with friends at Italian restaurant Locanda Verde, accompanied by Prince Harry.
For her evening look, Meghan Markle opted for a monochrome jumpsuit by Gabriela Hearst, featuring a strapless neckline and cut-out detailing at the back. Finishing off the sleek look, she accessorized with a Bottega Veneta pouch bag and strappy Aquazzura heels, while wearing her hair in a low ponytail.

It’s not the first time Meghan has championed eco-minded designer Gabriela Hearst. The Duchess often sported the designer’s cult Demi bag during her first official engagements as a royal. She also opted for a custom navy dress by the Uruguayan-born designer during a royal tour of New Zealand back in 2018, and she chose a tailored blazer by Chloé – which installed Hearst as the brand’s creative director in 2020 – for a visit to a non-profit in Amsterdam in April this year.
Meghan’s latest Gabriela Hearst look is in keeping with her wardrobe of elevated staples – her Dior city shorts, worn earlier in the day, are another example of that. All the better if they come with the sustainability credentials to match, too.

Meghan Markle broke out her casual summer wardrobe to support Prince Harry at a recent polo match.
On June 17, the Duchess of Sussex was photographed watching her husband play polo in Santa Monica, California, wearing an oversized denim button-down top over a pair of loose-fitting denim shorts that one fan account has attributed to the brand DÔEN. According to their website, the “Lane” short retail for $148 and are currently sold out in all sizes.

Markle styled the summer take on a Canadian tuxedo with a pair of black sunnies and brown sandals, keeping her hair in a half-up-half-down style with loose face-framing strands.

According to The Daily Mail, the Duke of Sussex plays for the Los Padres polo team under the name Harry Wales. Unfortunately, his team lost their semi-finals match on Friday and will not play in the upcoming Pacific Coast Circuit Intra-Circuit Cup finals.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently returned to The States from their first family visit to the U.K. since stepping back from their royal duties in March 2020. In early June, the Sussexes brought their three-year-old son Archie and one-year-old daughter Lilibet Diana to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. This marked Lilibet’s first-time meeting her great-grandmother and coincided with her first birthday.
The royal couple kept a low profile during their visit and were only briefly spotted behind the scenes at the Trooping the Colour before attending the National Service of Thanksgiving. Based on photographs from the festivities and reports from royal experts, the couple did not spend time  with Kate Middleton and Prince William.
In lieu of attending Platinum Jubilee festivities on June 4, the Sussex family celebrated Lilibet’s first birthday at Frogmore Cottage with friend and photographer Misan Harriman, who shared photos from the intimate gathering on Instagram. Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveled to Wales with eight-year-old Prince George and seven-year-old Princess Charlotte. They sent their regards to their niece on Twitter, writing, “Wishing a very happy birthday to Lilibet, turning one today!”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s visit to the Queen wasn’t the only secret trip the Duchess of Sussex took during the couple’s April voyage to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.
In a new post shared on June 13, the Amsterdam organization Project Fearless revealed that Markle stopped by in April to act as a guest coach for one of their after-school programs for girls and nonbinary children from the ages of 9 to 14. For the occasion, Meghan Markle wore a nude blazer over a black shirt and pants. Though the designer of the blazer is unconfirmed, one Markle fan account believes it to be by Chloé. Markle’s hair was let down in loose waves.
“Earlier this year, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, joined our first Entrepreneurship course as a guest coach,” Project Fearless shared on Instagram. “During her visit, she gave the girls inspiring and encouraging feedback on their sustainable business pitches, and enthusiastically joined in with a group exercise on facing fears.” (See the photos below.)

Meghan Markle praised the after-school programs in a statement shared by the organization. “Safe, supportive spaces like Project Fearless allow girls the opportunity to express themselves, build each other up, gain resilience, and tackle new challenges,” the Duchess said.
Following the couple’s private visit with Queen Elizabeth in April, which happened to mark Meghan Markle’s first time in the U.K. since their move to the states in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex brought their children to London to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

Though the couple reportedly introduced their one-year-old daughter, Lilibet Diana, to her great-grandmother, the family mostly remained out of the spotlight. Based on photographs from the festivities and reports from royal experts, the couple did not spend time with Kate Middleton and Prince William.
“For [Meghan and Harry], being here is all about honoring and celebrating the life and legacy of the queen, someone they have continued a close relationship with,” royal expert Omid Scobie said during an appearance on BBC Breakfast. “We know that is not the same with the other royal family members.”

Meghan Markle Revived Pretty Woman Style in Polka Dots For Prince Harry’s Polo Match

Meghan Markle Revived Pretty Woman Style in Polka Dots For Prince Harry’s Polo Match

As Julia Roberts famously said in Pretty Woman, “I want the fairytale.” It’s a sentiment a young Meghan Markle – the California girl who went from small-screen star to royal bride when an English prince swept her off her feet – no doubt related to. And an outing for the Duchess of Sussex in Santa Barbara over the weekend suggests Vivian Ward’s post-makeover wardrobe made quite an impression on her, too.
The Duchess turned out to support her husband Prince Harry, a keen polo player, at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, where his Los Padres team took home the Lisle Nixon Memorial trophy on Sunday, and her chosen outfit had more than a dash of Pretty Woman about it. Her breezy blouse with tie-front detail featured a polka-dot print – just like the dress Vivian wears to stomp the divots in the classic rom-com.

Meghan added high-waisted tailored shorts like those that were central to Julia’s ’90s power wardrobe in the film, once she’d relieved the boutiques of Rodeo Drive of much of their stock. Black Aquazzura heels, the requisite hat, and movie-star Valentino shades completed the Duchess’s retro look.

Meghan’s crisp white shorts, cinched with a black belt for added polish, are by Khaite, a New York brand that keeps cropping up in her wardrobe. She paired founder Cate Holstein’s off-the-shoulder bodysuit with tailored black trousers to join Prince Harry on stage at the Invictus Games in The Hague earlier this year. Khaite is typical of the labels that Meghan – who relied on Emilia Wickstead dresses and Givenchy formalwear as a working royal living in the UK – now gravitates towards as a mum-of-two living a private (though no less high-profile) life with her young family in Montecito.
These days, her style leans easy, minimalist and neutral, with a luxe touch. Think: cashmere separates by The Row and Loro Piana suiting for business trips to New York, Chanel ballet flats to pose for a relaxed family portrait, and swathes of taupe Ralph Lauren for a visit to the British Embassy in the Netherlands.

The Invictus Games 2022 have seen a number of noteworthy looks from Meghan Markle. While the most talked-about ones have been her white slouchy power suit, and a mini cut-out dress from Valentino, there are a couple that flew under the radar but are just as remarkable. Before the Duchess of Sussex took blue denim out for a spin with a Brandon Maxwell belted jacket, she wore another version of the same wardrobe staple on Day 1 of the Games.
This time, the mother-of-two was seen in what was her most casual look of the weekend, featuring a lighter blue pair of jeans with rolled-up cuffs. She paired the Moussy jeans with a plain white T-shirt from Ralph Lauren, and to elevate the outfit, topped it off with a chic boucle jacket from Celine. The collarless piece came in a deep shade of navy blue and with gold buttons, which Markle complemented with her gold bangle and the Celine Cuir Triomphe bag with a metallic strap. She also swapped her heels for the day, with two-tone ballerina flats from Chanel, in the colors taupe and black, and wore a pair of Linda Farrow aviators.

Later, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met with the members of Team UK and Team Canada, and for the occasion, Markle opted for a monochromatic look in one of her favorite colors. A fan of neutrals, particularly beige hues, Markle often wore the understated colors during royal duties back in the UK, and this look was reminiscent of that. The Duchess was seen in a camel-colored cashmere coat from Ralph Lauren, which she had draped over a fitted turtleneck and trousers in the same shade. Markle completed the look with a sleek hairstyle and a stack of dainty gold bracelets.

Another day at the Invictus Games, another great look from Meghan Markle.
On April 17, the Duchess of Sussex was photographed chatting with members of the Canadian team during the IGF reception, wearing a beautiful white Valentino dress with thin floral cutouts across the shoulders and neckline. She paired the look with a bold red lip and wore her hair down and parted to one side. Prince Harry attended the event in a tan suit.
Over the weekend Markle reportedly spoke with one competitor’s wife about their children’s similar names. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have two children: two-year-old Archie and 10-month-old Lilibet Diana. Archie’s full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Sherry McBain, a nursing officer in the Royal Air Force, told the P.A. news agency that Markle bonded with her wife, Mandy, who attended a book reading at the Invictus Games with their son, Harrison. The Duchess reportedly confided that she and Prince Harry had trouble choosing which name should come first, but ultimately opted to make Harrison their son’s middle name.

White seems to be an ongoing theme for Meghan Markle this week. For her first appearance in The Hague on April 15, the Duchess nailed the oversized suit look in an all-white Valentino ensemble. She then opted for a white off-the-shoulder top to attend the event’s opening ceremony on April 16. For the trifecta, Markle donned a belted Brandon Maxwell coat while watching a volleyball match with Prince Harry on April 17.

Ahead of the Invictus Games, an international sporting event founded by the Duke of Sussex for wounded service members, the couple paid a visit to Queen Elizabeth, marking their first joint trip to the U.K. since moving to California in 2020. A spokesperson for the couple confirmed that the couple saw the queen at Windsor Castle, where she’s been staying since her COVID-19 diagnosis in February. The Invictus Games began on April 16 and will run until April 22.

Meghan Markle put her best foot forward at this year’s Invictus Games — particularly when it came to her outfits.The Duchess of Sussex accompanied Prince Harry for the fifth annual international sporting event held at The Hague in the Netherlands, wearing the likes of Valentino, Celine, Khaite, Brandon Maxwell and more to attend events.
The opening ceremony kicked off on April 16, and the games will conclude on April 22. Though they were originally scheduled to be held in May 2020, the games were postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then they were postponed again to the spring of 2022.
Markle started off strong, wearing an all-white power suit by Valentino at the welcome reception on Friday. She topped off the look with a white stud bag also by the Italian luxury fashion house and white pumps from Aquazzura to match.

On Saturday, during the Land Rover challenge, the duchess and duke had a matching moment in black, with Markle wearing a chasseur jacket in black tweed and black bag by Celine over a plain white top, Moussy denim jeans and two-toned beige and black flats by Chanel. She wore sunglasses by Linda Farrow and styled her hair in a ponytail.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry wore a black polo with the Invictus Games logo and navy blue slacks.

During the opening ceremony later that evening, Markle dazzled in a black and white outfit by Khaite that featured a white ruched off-the-shoulder top and black flared trousers, with heels by Manolo Blahnik.

“For each team, my husband and I both recognize it’s been a lot to get here, both physically and emotionally, not least of which for the Ukraine team, whom we are all standing with,” she said. “One thing I know for sure is that every single moment it has taken to get here will be worth it, because it is here, at the Invictus Games, that we honor your years of active duty on the field and your continued service to your country, to your family and your community off the field.”
On Easter Sunday, Markle wore a white jacket by Brandon Maxwell over a pair of dark wash denim jeans and pumps by Manolo Blahnik.
