Who doesn’t love Kate Middleton? The Duchess of Cambridge’s Cinderella-like love story is every little girl’s dream, she has the cutest kids, and her outfits are always on point. Not only are her looks always polished without looking too matronly, she’s never afraid to wear high-end fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and match with affordable brands such as Zara. However, the Duchess isn’t the only impeccably dressed royal out there. To advance your knowledge in global affairs, sartorially speaking — and to add a few more fashion role models to your Pinterest board — here are some of our favorite fashion-forward royals.
1. Princess Charlene of Monaco
As the late Grace Kelly’s daughter-in-law, the Princess of Monaco certainly deserves a place on our list. But while the movie star-turned-royal favored voluminous evening gowns and preppy cropped pants, Princess Charlene takes a more modern approach. She has a very particular look — strong, sleek, and sometimes sexy — but her outfits are never boring. She experiments with masculine pantsuits, chic asymmetrical column dresses, and even pairs casual jeans with a cute top. It’s aspirational, but attainable — as every royal should be.
