Summer is upon us which means the royal ladies have been out in force in some mesmerising seasonal looks. The Duchess of Cambridge opted for pastels as she attended a roundtable talk at the Royal Institution in a pink power suit, having previously sported a cream dress earlier in the week and a tailored sky blue number at the Order of the Garter Service.

The Countess of Wessex dazzled beside her in a pink fluted-sleeve dress – no doubt one of her prettiest looks to date.

Royal Ascot ensured that we were inundated with much-needed race day style inspiration. Princess Beatrice and Zara Tindall stepped out in florals while back in London, Lady Amelia Windsor stole the show in archival Vivienne Westwood.

Queen Letizia of Spain and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands stepped away from the feminine hues by rocking earth tones – meaning there is something for everyone in this week’s royal round-up. Keep scrolling to discover more…
