This Week in Royal Fashion: European Edition



It’s been a relatively quiet fashion period for the British royals, especially with the Duchess of Sussex on maternity leave. But this week we’ve decided to spotlight two of the most stylish European royals: Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and Queen Letizia of Spain.

Crown Princess Mary at the Rainbow Awards

The Crown Princess looked lovely at the Danish Rainbow Awards, an annual event that celebrates those who have made a difference in the country’s LGBT community.

Per Heaven LeeMiller of UFO No More, Mary wore a Max Mara jumpsuit to the event. The outfit features a shimmery pink top with a darker, dusty rose-coloured wide leg trouser and a thin belt.

The jumpsuit, which is still available online for £471 at Giglio.com, is shown online with a pussy bow removable tie at the neck, and Mary seems to have removed hers instead. We discussed a few weeks ago here in a prior This Week in Royal Fashion – the Duchess of Cambridge made a somewhat similar move with her Gucci tie-neck blouse, styling it with the buttons in the front instead of the back.

Crown Princess Mary paired her jumpsuit with a matching pair of pointed heels that just barely peek out from under her trousers, a simple bracelet, and dangling earrings.

Queen Letizia at Google

On Thursday, Queen Letizia mixed diamonds with high street as she attended an event for the (In)Formate project at Madrid’s Google Campus. (In)Formate is an educational digital programme aimed at getting adolescents to think critically in terms of the Internet.

Rocking a trendy – and crazy affordable – snakeskin skirt, Letizia proved that queens can have just as much fun with fashion as she met with teens at the engagement. Her belted, pleated midi skirt is a now sold-out item from Zara that retailed for a mere £9.99. The queen wore the same outfit to an audience at the palace earlier this year.

She paired it with an unidentified black sweater, tall black boots, and a favourite pair of earrings – the Gold & Roses double dagger earrings, per the Queen Letizia Style Blog. The criss-cross style white gold and diamond earrings retail for 2,125 Euros and according to the designer’s website are “inspired by the daggers of the Arab warriors.”

We’ll be back with more royal style next week.
