It was quite the year of fashion for the Royal Family.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Queen Elizabeth II are often well-dressed, but 2019 proved to be a year in which their fashion also made a statement.
In May, after giving birth to her first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Meghan Markle appeared at Windsor Castle in a white, belted, sleeveless trench coat dress by U.K. designer Grace Wales Bonner.
Experts called her outfit choice a feminist moment in fashion.
“It’s empowering when we see figures like Meghan and Kate not scared to show what a woman’s body looks like after she’s given birth.”
In November, Buckingham Palace made an official announcement that Queen Elizabeth II would no longer wear new fur outfits.
“The Queen will continue to re-wear existing outfits in her wardrobe,” the palace said in a statement.
Experts confirmed the Queen stopped wearing fur in 2019 and would continue to wear faux fur during engagements.
The Lover’s Knot tiara, made with family-owned pearls and diamonds, was passed down to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
But this year, we want to embrace everything in between. From the stunning red carpet appearances to the business-ready fashion ensembles to the colourful coats fit for a queen, the royals could definitely be fashion inspirations going into the new year.
And we can’t forget about Prince William either; in fact, the Duke of Cambridge was one of our best-dressed celebrity picks of 2019.
Below are some of our favourite royal fashion moments of 2019.
