Who could forget Meghan's beautiful Brandon Maxwell pencil dress that she wore back in July 2018? This stunning outfit is still a fan favourite, and we're patiently waiting for her to bring it out of her wardrobe once again.

During the recent royal tour of the Caribbean, The Duchess of Cambridge was careful to pay tribute to the Jamaican flag by wearing yellow and green for her arrival to and departure from the island. She touched down in a brilliant yellow gown designed by Roksanda.

Featuring short sleeves and subtle wrap detailing, the dress accentuated Kate's natural beauty. She slipped on some white heels and clasped a Salvatore Ferragamo white clutch to complete her mesmerising island aesthetic.

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands attended the state banquet in the Grand Ducal Palace back in 2018, looking glorious in marigold yellow. The royal wore a sumptuous satin one-shoulder gown with pleat detail and a sequin sash, adding hint of sparkle to her heavenly look.

Her husband King Willem-Alexander also sported a gold sash which he wore across a blue shirt, creating a striking tonal contrast.
