Princess Anne championed a more natural colour palette, allowing for Princess Charlene of Monaco and Queen Rania of Jordan to follow suit. Smashing all colour boundaries was left to Zara Tindall, who tapped into the hottest trend of them all – Barbiecore.

Simply sit back and scroll on for more fashion news thanks to these royals this week…

The Princess of Wales looked poised and elegant as she brought the sunshine on Easter Sunday, cutting an elegant figure in a sapphire-hued coat dress to attend the Easter Mattins Service at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.

Princess Kate, 41, was joined by her husband Prince William, 40, and their three children Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and little Prince Louis, four. The royal looked radiant as ever in her figure-skimming 'Mayfair' number, dressing for the spring sunshine in one of her favourite designers, Catherine Walker.

The royal mother-of-three styled her chocolate brown tresses in elegant tumbling curls beneath an electric blue pillbox hat from Lock & Co., elevating her natural beauty with a rosy blush, bronze eye shadow and a soft pink lip.

Princess Charlotte stepped into the royal spotlight on Easter Sunday, joining her family to attend the first Easter Mattins Service of King Charles' reign at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

The seven-year-old royal looked immaculate in a smart navy coat as she arrived hand-in-hand with her parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and her two brothers, Prince George and Prince Louis. The Princess later removed her coat, revealing a super sweet floral tea dress designed by Rachel Riley and pastel blue tights.

Princess Beatrice looked pretty-in-pink to attend the Easter Mattins Service at St. George's Chapel on Easter Sunday, donning one of her most-worn Emilia Wickstead dresses.

The royal mother-of-one, 34, arrived at Windsor Castle beside her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 39. She looked elegant in a pastel pink crepe dress by Emilia Wickstead previously worn by Duchess Sophie. The romantic garment featured an elegant crew neckline, a retro bell skirt and black lace embellishing the sleeves. The royal cinched her waist with a slick black belt adorned with an oversized bow, complementing the ebony accents of her feminine frock with a coordinating black fascinator.

Zara Tindall was a modern-day Barbie in a hot-pink silk dress from Jane Atelier to attend the annual Easter Mattins Service at St George's Chapel on Sunday. The wife of Mike Tindall, who was glowing beside her two daughters Mia and Lena, stepped out in the bold and beautiful ensemble to unite with her royal family for the first Easter service of King Charles' reign.

Complete with elegant bishop's sleeves, a playful thigh-slit and glamorous button-down detailing across the bodice, Zara's funky fuchsia moment, which also happened to be custom-made, highlighted her glossy platinum blonde hair and flawless complexion.

Princess Anne

The sister of King Charles III looked immaculate in a crisp bouclé pinafore-style coat, complete with a flattering front panel adorned with oversized cream buttons and a romantic puffed collar. The royal mother-of-two added a set of perfectly coordinated navy accessories, including slick leather gloves, elegant navy heels, a suede clutch bag and a striking boater hat complete with fabulously feathered detailing.

The Duchess of Edinburgh is enjoying a busy week of royal engagements and made another appearance to one of her long-standing patronages on Wednesday.

Looking chic as ever, Sophie chose one of her favourite statement prints for her meeting, wearing her Emilia Wickstead snake print skirt with a pretty pink blouse and a leather Western belt. To finish her neutral look, she added her collarless Loewe coat and beloved Sophie Habsburg 'Moneypenny' clutch bag.

Princess Charlene of Monaco AKA style extraordinaire just revamped her eveningwear wardrobe, adding the most exquisite piece to her collection. On Wednesday, the former Olympian joined her husband Prince Albert to attend a gala celebrating the 160th anniversary of the Monegasque Consulate of Monaco. As for her latest look, we are totally hooked.

The 45-year-old made an entrance in a glistening Akris gown coined the 'Tulle & Sequin Long Sleeve A-Line Gown.' Featuring a divine mesh of materials, long sleeves, an iridescent ebony sequined finish and an operatic cut, the luxurious garment proved a hit among fans. Just look at the dress' £6k price tag for an indication of quite how lavish the piece is…

Queen Rania of Jordan

Queen Rania of Jordan's royal visit to Japan has brought with it plenty of stylish fashion moments, unsurprisingl The monarch looked beautiful in a pastel outfit from Australian designer Zimmermann during her meeting with Yuko Kishida, wife of the Prime Minister of Japan, on Tuesday – but she did make one alteration to her outfit.

Rania chose the elegant 'High Tide Flower Skirt', £995, and 'High Tide Flower Body Shirt', £650, for the important engagement – but made the decision to remove the ultra-feminine floral details from the neckline of the top, instead keeping it clean and simple.

It is also thought that the royal added another layer beneath her top, in order to avoid the sheer look as seen on the original design. The Jordanian Queen is well-known and admired for her fashion-forward approach to modest dressing, of course.

During her trip, the 52-year-old also attended an exhibition at The National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, called the '70th Anniversary Exhibition: Secrets of Important Cultural Properties' at the National Museum of Modern Art in Kitanomaru Park.

Part of her royal tour, the cultural trip made for an ideal dress-up opportunity, which Queen Rania took full advantage of. The ever-radiant royal looked divine in a black pantsuit from Alexandre Vaultier's Autumn/Winter 2022 couture collection. Featuring a sculptural fit, a waist-cinching silhouette, classic tailoring, short sleeves and classic button-detailing, the magnificent set looked mesmerising when paired with some cherry red Gianvito Pumps in a pristine satin.
