  • That one-shouldered dress tho.

    The royals have had a very busy week recently, what with Princess Diana’s niece getting married, the Order of the Garter procession and Royal Ascot kicking off their first races just yesterday. There’s a couple of royals who have been particularly busy though, namely Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice who have nailed the art of the day to night outfit change. Mainly out of necessity, as they had a lot to do yesterday.

    The sisters attended Royal Ascot in the morning, where they were a pastel perfect pair as they strolled around the royal enclosure. Princess Beatrice chose a powder blue Claire Mischevani dress with eye-catching shoulders, paired with a white clutch and a total high heel classic: nude Kurt Geiger pointed heels.

    On the other hand, bride-to-be Princess Eugenie very much kept in line with Meghan Markle’s all-white ensemble in a chic, minimal outfit. She wore a white Osman wraparound dress with structured kimono sleeves, along with silver heels and a millennial pink clutch.

    The Ascot veterans completely nailed the occasion, as the races are notoriously strict on dress code. Their compulsory hats were also gorgeous, with Beatrice’s more dramatic style designed by Juliette Millinery while Eugenie’s chic oversized hat was by Emily-London.

    The royals then changed the game for their evening event, namely the super cool Serpentine Summer Party back in London. Channeling a much more rock and roll vibe, Princess Beatrice bust out a leather jacket and a peacock Mary Katrantzou dress – which we’re still convinced is in some way an optical illusion. She paired it with silver embellished heeled sandals and very on-trend box clutch.

    Although Meghan Markle may have gotten some heat for her off-the-shoulder look at Trooping the Colour, Eugenie dared to flash hers regardless with a striking one-shoulder piece by Roland Mouret. Detailed with electric blue and purple florals, she gave it an edgier vibe with a pair of leggings and dramatic black heels. Her husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank also joined her, though he didn’t go for as bold a look.

    We can’t wait to see what Princess Eugenie wears to her wedding.

    Given that she’s given a bit more leeway as a royal without a direct connection to the throne, she’ll be able to buck tradition and do what she wants hopefully. Fingers crossed she goes bold.
