A very happy new year to you Royal Style Watchers! We have a feeling 2020 is going to be a fabulous year for regal fashion. Over the Christmas break, we saw the British Royals attend church at Sandringham in their usual finery - and while both Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan have enjoyed private family time over the past week, their European counterparts Crown Princess Mary and Princess Marie of Denmark donned beautiful gowns for New Year's receptions, giving us a welcome dose of royal glamour.

Princess Marie

Marie looked stunning alongside Prince Joachim in this floor-length navy satin gown at the New Year reception of the Danish royals at Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen. The royal accessorised with a glittering tiara, dazzling jewelled drop earrings and a golden clutch.

Didn't Mary look mesmerising in her scarlet red velvet long-sleeved gown on 1 January? The Crown Princess of Denmark stunned in her elegant dress which she accessorised with a jewelled belt and matching bracelet and necklace set. Fun fact - Mary's amazing tiara is the Ruby Parure Tiara that was originally made for the coronation of Empress Josephine.

Princess Mary's second look of the year so far was this chic white gown with thin lilac belt for a New Year's diplomatic reception in Copenhagen at the Christiansborg Palace. With a straight neckline and long sleeves, the 47-year-old was so glamorous in the floor-length dress, a pair of pearl drop earrings and a matching pearl necklace.
