Chic princesses used to be called Jasmine or Belle. But now we're older and wiser, it's clear that real-life royals are infinitely more stylish (sorry, Disney). While in the UK we look to icons such as Diana and now Kate Middleton (yes, a duchess, but we allow her to make the cut), all over the world there are royals who have wardrobes full of incredible outfits. Whether it's Princess Grace of Monaco's stunning gowns or the modern Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz, who's often spotted front row at fashion week, there are many monarchs whose closets surpass Cinderella's. Behold, your guide to the chicest royal princesses.
Style Notes: Princess Margaret always brought the glam to the Royal family.
Style Notes: The purple! The black roll-neck! All things we would wear right now, to be honest.
Style Notes: This iconic black dress designed by Christina Stambolian caused shockwaves when Princess Diana first wore it. It was the most daring dress worn by the royal, who usually went for more demure styles.
Style Notes: Actress Grace Kelly looked stunning on her wedding day when she wed the Prince of Monaco. But it was her everyday looks that also stood out. From her Hermès bag to a chic little hat, there's nothing we don't love about this outfit.
Style Notes: In Giorgio Armani at Milan Fashion Week in 2013. Need we say more?
Style Notes: Princess Madeleine of Sweden gets top fashion marks for wearing a Roksanda dress.
Style Notes: The blue velvet coat dress might be almost mumsy on some, but Princess Charlene avoids that with her snappy peroxide haircut and sleek hat.
Style Notes: Princess Deena became the editor in chief of Vogue Arabia in 2016 and was dubbed the Anna Wintour of Saudi Arabia. What could be more fashion than that?
Style Notes: Beatrice looks exceptionally cool in this short black mini and heels. The red clutch just perfects the whole outfit.
Style Notes: A frilly floral frock is right up our street. This one from Whistles is still available.
Style Notes: Although now a queen, Letizia became a princess in 2004. Her classic style often involves a pair of amazing high heels and a ladylike dress or high-waisted trousers to cinch in the waist.
