Young, Fab
& Royal
Q+A rounds up of the most stylish
royalty from across the globe
Imagine from birth you're besieged by designers begging to dress you in their designs so you can take your place on the best-dressed list of glossies like Vogue and Vanity Fair. Anything
and everything you wear can either be slated as a new trend or scrutinized by the public and media alike. Welcome to the world of being a royal princess and/or queen. From
Princess
Mabel of Orange-Nassau
to Queen Rania of Jordan, Q+A celebrates the royal nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton with a roundup of the most stylish royal fashion icons from
across the globe.
By Isabella Redmond Styles
Princess Charlotte Casiraghi
We’d be a little disappointed if this Princess of Monaco wasn’t a fashion maven. After all, she has style engrained in her genes - her grandmother is style icon Grace Kelly and her mother,
Princess Caroline was said to be the belle of her generation. Knockout beauty Charlotte is a sucker for Chanel and Alberta Ferretti but has been spotted in more daring, colorful creations
including blood red body con that left very little to the imagination. A stalwart of
Vanity Fair’s "Best Dressed," you can find her at Paris Fashion Week kicking back with Kaiser Karl.

Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau
Definitely not your ordinary princess. No sturdy tweeds and suede knee-high boots for this Dutch royal. Princess Mabel has a serious penchant for Dutch design duo Viktor & Rolf, so
much so that she asked them to create her wedding dress. A pretty creation, made even prettier by the dazzling tiara atop her head, adorned with bows that gradually increased in size
towards the train of the dress. Avant-garde, bold and humorous, words not often used to describe a royal’s style, but totally applicable to this princess. We like.
Queen Rania of Jordan
An Arabian glamazon, Queen Rania has royal
poise and grace by the bucket load as well as
a knack for the latest trend. She has couture
nailed, favoring Armani Prive, Elie Saab and
Stephane Rolland as well as young upstarts
like Project Runway’s Rami Kashou. If that's
not enough she was recently voted the second
most beautiful royal ever, only losing out on first
place to Princess Casiraghi's grandmomma,
Grace Kelly. Ms. Middleton should sit up and
take note.

Princess Elisabeth Von Thurn Und Taxis
Quite possibly the first royal blogger thanks to
her 'Princess Diaries,’ which feature posts that
are witty, intelligent and surprisingly humble.
Princess Thurn Und Taxis of Regensburg,
Germany, is a writer and contributor by
profession, which goes some way to
explaining her bohemian style.  She would
rather be seen in cool but effortless pieces by
Vanessa Bruno or Duru Olowu than bespoke
ruffles.


Princess Reema Bint Bandar Al Saud
(Not Pictured)
A princess, humanitarian and businesswoman
all in one. Princess Reema is CEO of ALFA
International and AL HAMA LLC, the luxury
retailers who are responsible for the Middle
Eastern outputs of Donna Karan and British
luxury department store, Harvey Nichols. She's
also found time to become involved with the
Zahra Breast Cancer Association which helps
raise awareness about the disease in her
native Saudi Arabia. And she runs a spa on the
side. We doubt this princess has time to look
for peas under her mattress.
