As we ring in the New Year, our favourite royal ladies have been bringing their fashion A-game to 2022 – and we're feeling inspired for winter. 

READ: Kate Middleton's £10 ASOS earrings are finally back in stock – but hurry

The Countess of Wessex has embarked on her first overseas trip of the year - and she's packed plenty of stylish outfits for her stay in Qatar. Meanwhile, Queen Letizia of Spain has been pictured heading to a meeting at the FEDER headquarters in Madrid – and her tailored coat is oh-so-cosy! 

And of course, we couldn't get through the week without talking about Princess Sofia of Sweden's showstopping hair transformation. Attending a gala at the Avicii Arena in Stockholm, the royal showcased her new block fringe at the event, stepping out in a rich burgundy dress teamed with the same Manolo's owned by Carrie Bradshaw.  

From Pippa Middleton's ravishing red moment to Princess Eugenie's cashmere dress, here are our favourite royal fashion moments of the week...

The Countess wowed in a statement two-tone outfit in Qatar

Carrying out engagements in her role as Global Ambassador for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), the Countess looked radiant as ever as she arrived in Doha on Wednesday. The 56-year-old donned a plum-coloured pie crust blouse, tucking it into a high-rise 'Georgette' skirt from Emilia Wickstead as she visited the Qatar Fund organisation. Co-ordinating her accessories, the wife of Prince Edward completed her two-tone look with the 'Moneypenny Clutch' in Burgundy from designer Sophie Habsburg
