Duchess Sophie has kicked the month off strong with two looks during her recent trip to Edinburgh with her husband Prince Edward, as well as King Charles and Queen Camilla.

Meanwhile, over in Europe Queen Mary, Queen Maxima, and Queen Letizia have been styling up a storm and we are only a week into the month.

The Danish royal, 52, has served look upon look during her trip to Greenland this week. The most elegant of all was this bespoke floor-grazing gown from Teri Jon By Rickie Freeman she wore to an official dinner at Kulturhuset Katuaq in Nuuk.

The gilded gold number with a cinched waist and collared neckline was teamed with gold heels, the 18-carat gold 'Winter Frost' earrings from Ole Lynggaard and the diamond-adorned 'Glory' tennis bracelet from Dulong Fine Jewelery.
