It was a whirlwind week for the European royals, especially the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, nee Kate Middleton, who welcomed a new daughter to their family. Just hours after giving birth, Kate’s hairstylist Amanda Cook was on hand to prepare the duchess for photos with her baby girl outside the Lindo Wing while Prince George made a scene-stealing appearance outside the hospital in a smart blue ensemble. Emerging in a cream-and-yellow Jenny Packham dress, a perfectly sunny selection for such a joyous occasion, Kate dazzled the world (and even managed to wear heels!)
Princess Madeleine of Sweden looked radiant as she gave royal enthusiasts a glimpse of her chic maternity style in a cream button-up coat as she joined her family to celebrate King Carl XVI Gustaf’s birthday celebrations at the Royal Palace in Stockholm, with little daughter Leonore stood by her mother’s side in an adorable blue outfit.
Meanwhile, Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece showed off her high fashion credentials as she mingled with the industry’s elite at a book launch party hosted by Ralph Lauren. Princess Marie-Chantal was the epitome of elegance in a sleek top and cropped trousers, keeping her accessories to a minimum save for tan strappy heeled sandals and a golden clutch bag.
Elsewhere in the world, Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg paid a visit to the Economic Mission of Morocco, in a chic pale pink chiffon floor-length skirt paired with a cream blazer and top. She wore her blonde hair down in a half-up half-down style and accessorised with a pale pink quilted bag and white ballet pumps.
Princess Marie of Denmark also wowed fans when she arrived for the ‘Sikon’ National Association for Autism Conference in Odense, Denmark. The mother-of-two chose a colourful pink top paired with black cropped trousers and matching stilettos for a laidback chic style.
Pink was also the colour of choice for Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, who dazzled fans with a sleek fuschia dress and a matching hat. Queen Maxima often favours colourful ensembles and this week was no exception as she later stepped out looking a ray of sunshine in a yellow ensemble during a visit at Bonaire.
