Searching for style inspiration this Christmas party season? Take a cue from your favourite members of royalty and wear velvet! Check out our ALL the best pictures of royals wearing the winter trend to spark some ideas.
Queen Letizia of Spain
Queen Letizia wowed everyone in November 2018 when she wore the Queen Maria Christina's Cartier Loop Tiara for the very first time - isn’t it incredible? Unsurprisingly, she decided to go low-key with her gown to let her tiara be the focal point of her outfit. The former journalist looked elegant in a Felipe Varela black velvet dress with long-sleeves.
Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy was the designer of choice for Meghan's look when she arrived at theRoyal Academy of Arts in 2018. She was there to open Oceania, the first-ever major survey of Oceanic art to be held in the United Kingdom.
Kate was the belle of the ball in a strapless black velvet dress as she walked the red carpet at the Sun Military Awards. She opted for Alexander McQueen and it featured a frill trim over the bust and a fishtail-style skirt.
Swit swoo! Doesn't Princess Charlene look beautiful?! She wore a floor-sweeping blue velvet gown for the annual Monaco Against Autism gala at the Monte-Carlo Sporting Club in November 2013, a look that still is on point today.
Princess Diana wore this burgundy silk-velvet evening dress, with its embroidered tail coat, to the premiere of the film Steel Magnolias in Leicester Square in 1990, and then again on a state visit to South Korea in 1992. The simple column dress has a slit at the back and she teamed it with accessories in a similar hue.
For a festive dinner with Ralph Lauren, Princess Diana’s niece Kitty Spencer opted for a crush velvet wrap dress with a plunging neckline.
Queen Rania of Jordan
What’s better than a velvet gown? A velvet power suit! Queen Rania arrived at the state opening of parliament in Amman, Jordan, wearing a beautiful black skirt suit straight from Antonio Berardi's 2016 runway.
