2020 has without a doubt been pretty eventful for the royal family. With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle giving up their royal titles and moving to LA, Princess Beatrice’s quaint wedding amidst a pandemic, and Kate Middleton and Prince William continuing their (socially distanced) royal engagements…the royals have surely (and graciously) served us with quite a few looks thus far.
So, without further ado, and to celebrate THE CROWN Returning to our screens today, here they are!
Kate Middleton recycled a stunning 2-piece suit from Dolce & Gabbana
Middleton was first seen wearing this timeless set to a mental health conference last year. In January, she re-wore it to a workshop run by the National Portrait Gallery’s in Hospital Programme.
Meghan Markle wore a camel-coloured ensemble
For her first royal engagement of the year, Meghan paired a brown silk skirt with a gorgeous camel coat and brown velvet Jimmy Choos.
The Duchess also wore a skirt from Zara in January!
On her trip to Wales, to visit Ely and Careau Children’s Centre, Kate wore a dazzling yet stylish leopard-print skirt from Zara.
Middleton also repurposed an Alexander McQueen gown from 2012
Keeping in check with the “sustainable fashion” theme for this year’s BAFTAs, attendees were asked to either buy a vintage piece, rent clothes, or to re-wear an item – and Kate chose a STUNNING white and gold gown.
Markle co-ordinated with Prince Harry
For the Mountbatten Festival of Music last March, the couple matched in bright red ensembles.
Kate’s Emerald Moment at the Guinness Storehouse
On a trip to Ireland last March, Middleton wore an elegant shimmering green dress, paired with matching velvet heels, and vintage-inspired gold accessories – and we’re OBSESSED!
Middleton re-wore yet another dress to a charity gala…
The duchess had previously worn this sparkly blue Jenny Packham number during her tour of India in 2016.
Meghan and Prince Harry coordinated (again) for The Endeavour Fund Awards
The couple matched blue outfits in their appearance in London last March…and Meghan wore a dress from Victoria Beckham’s clothing line!
Princess Sofia wore scrubs to volunteer at Sopihahemmet Hospital
Arguably the most memorable royal moment of the year, Princess Sofia of Sweden completed a short medical emergency training-course in April to be able to volunteer. She carried out supporting duties like disinfecting equipment… what a star!
Princess Beatrice repurposed one of Queen Elizabeth’s gowns as her wedding dress
Due to the pandemic, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi held a small, private wedding in July (after postponing their original plans for a May wedding).
And in order to make the royal occasion even more special, Beatrice borrowed a gown that the Queen had worn to the London movie premiere of ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ in 1962, and again at the State Opening of Parliament in 1967.
Kate served some serious Princess Diana vibes
The duchess channelled Princess Diana with a collared print dress in July. Middleton wore this blue and white ensemble, in the traditional colours of the NHS, when her and Prince William visited Queen Elizabeth Hospital to celebrate the 72nd birthday of the NHS, and to thank the healthcare frontlines.
The dress was reminiscent of a navy collared gown princess Diana wore at Kensington Palace in 1985.
Middleton was photographed for the first time with a face mask in August…
…and looked absolutely chic! She re-wore yet another number – a GORGEOUS designer, crisp-white dress which she wore to Wimbledon last year.
And then again with the sweetest dress!
Kate wore the extremely stylish floral dress while visiting Shire Hall Care Home.
And finally, Queen Letizia gave us a true power suit moment!
The female power suit is still having a major moment (and we are TOTALLY here for it) …especially for this all-red suit that Queen Letizia of Spain looked phenomenal in!
