Royal style watch: all the best outfits of the week

Duchess Meghan and the Queen looked so chic as they returned to royal duties

It was back to work for Europe's royal families this week as they returned from their relaxing summer holidays. From award ceremonies to public engagements, church services and even accompanying little Princes and Princesses on the school run, the royals were firmly back on duty. The Duchess of Sussex wowed onlookers with another chic ensemble at the WellChild Awards, while the Queen, Prince Charles and Princess Anne donned their finest for the Braemar Gathering. We even got a sneak peek of Duchess Kate looking elegant on her way to church. 

Take a look at the photos below for the latest royal looks…

Meghan's sleek suit

Duchess Meghan looked seriously smart at London's WellChild Awards with Prince Harry on Tuesday evening. The new royal chose an Altuzarra jacket and trouser suit for the event, teaming it with a silk camisole by Swedish designer Deitas and a coordinating clutch bag and heels. The former actress can pull off any look she chooses and this elegant ensemble was ideal for the occasion.

Duchess Kate's bespoke coat

The Duchess of Cambridge has kept a low profile this summer, no doubt busy at home with her baby boy, Prince Louis, so it was a wonderful surprise to see her attending church with the Queen. Kate looked stunning in a grey coat with chic black-trimmed collar and matching buttons by Catherine Walker. The royal finished her look with a gorgeous black hat.

Her Majesty in bright blue

The Queen is a huge fan of bright colours which allow her to stand out from the crowd. The 92-year-old monarch kept to her preferred style at the annual Braemar Gathering with Prince Charles and Princess Anne. The Queen wore a lovely blue coat dress to watch the highland games, along with a matching hat featuring pretty velvet leaf detail.

Monochrome for Camilla

The Duchess of Cornwall chose a sophisticated monochrome dress for a visit to the newly refurbished 'Maiden' yacht along the River Thames with Prince Charles. Camilla looked so elegant in the navy and white dress with long white sleeves, pairing it with court shoes and a pearl necklace.

Princess Sofia goes glam

We absolutely love this dress! Princess Sofia of Sweden looked truly stunning with her husband Prince Carl Philip of Sweden at a society wedding. The beautiful royal chose a floor-length baby blue By Malina dress with boat neckline and cinched-in waist.

It's turquoise for Anne

It seems both the Queen and Princess Anne were in a turquoise mood this week, with both royals wearing the vibrant shade. Anne looked elegant in the bright coat dress and matching hat with feather detail at the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland's Annual Garden party at Hillsborough Castle.

Florals for Princess Victoria

Top style points for Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden who stepped out in a gorgeous red floral dress for a luncheon at the Stockholm City Hall.

Letizia channels Duchess Meghan

Shirt dresses are everywhere right now, partly thanks to the Duchess of Sussex being such a fan of the chic look. Queen Letizia donned a super smart navy shirt dress this week at the Salamaq 18 Agricultural Fair. We're love this in our work wardrobe!

Queen Mathilde does the school run

It's rare to see a Queen at the school gates so hurrah for Queen Mathilde of Belgium who accompanied her children, Princess Eleonore and Prince Gabriel to school this week. The monarch looked sophisticated in a bright floral jacket and cream trousers with matching heels.

Charlene is so chic!

Oh to have Princess Charlene of Monaco's wardrobe. The royal showed us all how to do casual style at the Citizens Annual Picnic in Monaco on 31 August. Charlene wore a pale grey blouse with skinny white jeans and matching heels. How cute are her children Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella!
