Valentine's Day is the one day a year when girls can dress in red hot rags and no other girls can say anything about it. Mean Girls quotes aside, our favourite royals came out in force to mark Valentine's Day, donning a host of romantic red outfits for us to coo over.

Queen Letizia of Spain rocked some red leather trousers, with the Countess of Wessex following suit in a patent trench coat. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden served up date-night vibes in an orange-red ensemble, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands charmed in a crimson cape and Queen Mathilde of Belgium radiated confidence in rose. Topping off the list is Queen Rania of Jordan, who sported an adorable candy-pink coat that exuded feminine fun.

At the end of last week, the Countess of Wessex made an appearance at the Chartered Management Institute Conference and looked undeniably composed. The mother-of-two donned a new dress from ME+EM, one of her favourite labels, layered under a patent black lambskin trench coat by Prada. She clasped her trusty Sophie Habsburg Black 'Lunatic Caviar' for her outing essentials.
