The World’s Most Stylish Royals Ranked
The world has been completely enamored by Royal style for decades, and for good reason! The Royal women are the ultimate style muses with their sophisticated and polished way of dressing and sense of fashion. Follow along as we rank the 15 most stylish royals ever and find out who we placed as the number one most well-dressed Royal fashionista:
15. Princess Charlene of Monaco
Statuesque, glamorous and polished — all aspects of Royal style that Princess Charlene of Monaco has mastered! She has a classic yet modern take on style and favors classic brands such as Dior, Ralph Lauren, and Armani. One of her most iconic and memorable style moments is this sparkling silver jumpsuit that she wore at the 69th Monaco Red Cross Ball Gala at Sporting Monte-Carlo.
14. Zara Tindall
Zara Tindall is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth and the daughter of Princess Anne. Her style isn’t overly bold or attention-seeking like some of her cousins, but it still deserves some praise. Her style is pragmatic, classic and always tailored. If she is going to add something to her look that makes a statement, it’s likely a fascinator or accessory of some sort like this oversized slanted hat and beaded clutch.
13. Queen Maxima of the Netherlands
Queen Maxima is an Argentinian-born Dutch icon and her style is seriously swoon-worthy. She has a penchant for bright colors and sparkles and is always sure to dazzle when she makes a public appearance or steps onto a red carpet. One of our favorite looks from Queen Maxima is this fuschia colored lace tier dress. The dainty off-the-shoulder neckline looks super elegant and her diamond necklace and tiara add the perfect ounce of glamor.
12. Princess Beatrice Of York
Typically Royals are quite modest and understated with their style, but Princess Beatrice most definitely is not! The Princess isn’t afraid to make heads turn with her style and has a quirky sense of fashion that’s landed her as the target of quite a few headlines over the years. One of her most memorable looks by far is the butterfly fascinator she wore to the marriage ceremony of Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly.
11. Princess Eugenie of York
Like her sister, Princess Eugenie of York also has quite the eccentric sense of fashion. The two are quite similar in terms of appearances, but also clearly share the same taste in clothing. Princess Eugenie has a similar fondness for bold fascinators, statement-making dresses and A-line full skirts.
10. Princess Sofia of Sweden
Sweden’s Princess Sofia, the Duchess of Värmland, is undeniably one of the best-dressed women in Europe! Her wardrobe consists of pretty pastel dresses and her brunette locks are consistently glossy and bouncy, which in combination have become her signature look. As a former television personality, the beauty has a natural ease in front of cameras, similar to Meghan Markle, and seems to radiate in every photo taken of her.
10. Lady Amelia Windsor
Lady Amelia Windsor once made headlines as the “The Most Beautiful Member of the Royal Family” and has proceeded to grace runways and the cover of magazines ever since. When she’s not front-and-center, she also works in fashion behind-the-scenes and has amassed quite the Instagram following by sharing photos of her outfits and travels.
9. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is definitely a Royal to keep an eye on for outfit inspiration. The Princess is set to inherit the throne and has already proven she has the Royal wardrobe to match her future role as a public figure with power and grace. Glamorous full-skirted gowns, regal sparkling tiaras, and sophisticated tailoring are all signature pieces in her wardrobe.
7. Queen Elizabeth
It wouldn’t be a Royal fashion ranking without including the infamous Queen Elizabeth! Throughout her royal reign, the Queen has worn a matching set in every color and shade of the rainbow and that fashion milestone is well-deserving of some praise. She accessorizes with elegant fascinators, strings of pearls and satin gloves on almost every occasion, which she has proven to be the timeless staple items in her wardrobe.
6. Queen Rania of Jordan
While some Royals opt to be timeless and classic, others opt to be chic and on-trend. Queen Rania of Jordan is definitely one Royal who tends to lean on the trendier and modern side of fashion, which we applaud her for in a fashion space that tends to be quite conservative. The Queen has amassed a notable Instagram following of 4.7 million followers where she shares the striking outfits she wears during Royal public appearances.
5. Queen Letizia of Spain
Queen Letizia of Spain is renowned worldwide for her classy yet modern approach to regal dressing. She definitely falls on the trendier side of the fashion spectrum like Queen Rania, but she always remains polished and modest to stay appropriate in her Royal role. We love that she doesn’t fall victim to the stuffy, outdated fashion that some Royals still tend to wear and remains true to her own personal style despite her title as Queen.
4. Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has revolutionized Royal style already during her short time as a Duchess. The British royal family is quite particular with how they dress and she’s slowly but surely been learning the rules as she goes. Her laid-back California style has transformed to that suitable for a polished princess, yet she still wears pieces that are trendy and young which is something we love about her.
3. Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco
Grace Kelly was another Hollywood starlet who made the glamorous transition from actress to Royal figure when she married Prince Rainer of Monaco. Her style consisted of flouncy skirts, sparkly diamond jewelry, and midi-length pencil skirts. Aside from her iconic wedding dress, one of her most memorable fashion moments is the time she wore this silky, pleated mint green slip dress to the Oscar awards in 1955.
2. Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton is perhaps the most fashionable women in the world right now! Her perfectly polished and classy outfits always create fashion frenzies of Royal fans hoping to cultivate her looks themselves. She’s always modest, sleek and sophisticated, which is all a part of her charm. Her locks are always blown out in perfectly quaffed glossy curls and her makeup is natural yet inherently glowing.
1. Princess Diana of Wales
Of all the stylish royal figures, we have to give the number one spot to the late Princess Diana! She arguably brought Royal fashion into the forefront of the public eye even before Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle. She was the first royal rule-breaker when it came to fashion and wore risky, statement-making outfits on more than one occasion that are still fondly remembered today.
