17 Most Outrageous Fashion Choices made by Royals Around the World
Posted in Humor on Dec 12th, 2018
Given their high ranking status and royal titles, we often expect royals to have the most sophisticated sense of style. Due to a slew of restrictive royal rules, not many royals are able to creatively express themselves through their fashion choices. Unfortunately, when these royals were given an opportunity, they royally bombed it.

17. Queen Margrethe of Denmark
If there is one fabric that screams luxury and wealth, it’s silk. Queen Margethe of Denmark took her love of silk to a very unnecessary extreme when she stepped out in this lavender silk gown. To give her the benefit of the doubt, this ensemble debuted at her 60th birthday celebration in Copenhagen. If there’s an occasion to go all out, it’s got to be a birthday!
16. Prince William's feathered cap
Alright, we know there’s definitely a traditional ceremony attached to this funky outfit, but that doesn’t excuse it from being absolutely absurd. From the oversized beret fit for a giant, to the forest green floor-length cape straight out of Harry Potter, William should be glad this outfit only sees the light of day once in a blue moon.
15. Kate Middleton's Luau frock
The often very fashionable Kate Middleton shocked the world when she donned this pink tea-length dress that looks it was purchased because her son threw up on her original outfit. While it’s difficult for Kate to look anything but fabulous in just about anything, this is definitely bottom 5 KM looks.
14. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden's outdated prom dress
If you ever find yourself invited to attend a dinner hosted by Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands at Rijksmuseum, make sure you don't show up in your 9th grade formal dress. Take away that fancy shoulder bow and we’re pretty sure every high school has some version of this dress in their closet!
13. Lady Amerlia Windsor's poorly constructed mess
Lady Amelia is one of few royals who used to wealth, power, and stunning good looks to thrive on the runway. High fashion as she may be, this black mesh gown is everything but stylish. While the skirt had serious potential to be cute, the bust of the dress ruins it with one swift look.
12. Queen Maxima of The Netherlands' ridiculous ruffles
When standing next to Queen Rania of Jordan, Queen Maxima of The Netherlands looks quite out of place. The two were out for lunch when this photo was taken, but it appears as though Queen Maxima never got the memo that the meal was totally dress-down.
11. Princess Eugenie's emo makeup
Within the British royal palace, it’s pretty uncommon to see the royal women caking on makeup. Since it’s against royal protocol, you’ll never catch Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle stepping out with any heavy makeup. Since she stands a comfortable distance away from the throne, Princess Eugenie’s heavy eyeliner doesn’t receive as much scrutiny as it deserves.
10. Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Of Thailand
Don’t get us wrong, Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Of Thailand knows how to dress. For some reason when Paris’ Fashion Week rolled around, she lost all sense of style and went for this cowboy-esque ensemble that turned heads fof the wrong reasons. This outfit could have been salvaged if only she had chose a different pair of shoes!
9. Crown Princess Mary Of Denmark's frumpy fit
When you’ve got enough power and money to call yourself the Crown Princess of Denmark, we expect you to dress the part. Unfortunately, Princess Mary looks as though she stopped into Target for a quick pickup and chose this blush pink mom-dress in a hurry. The chunky belt doesn’t distract from the mess of the dress or do much to flatter her figure.
8. Princess Charlene of Monaco's laser-cut bodycon
If Princess Charlene of Monaco was anywhere other than the Versace show during Milan’s Fashion Week wearing this silver cut-out bodycon dress, we would probably still be having a meltdown. More reminiscent of something Pamela Anderson would wear to an award show, this silver number is a royal no-no.
7. Charlotte Casiraghi
Heiress apparent of Monaco, Charlotte Casiraghi walked the red carpet to the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology Gala in this gown that looks as though a rainbow vomitted on her. Some may call it high fashion, we say pass.
6. Queen Mathilde Of Belgium
Instead of focusing on decking the halls and spreading holiday cheer, Queen Mathile of Belgium decided to dress herself in holiday spirit! This gold and black ensemble perfectly blends in with the fireplace, Christmas tree, and bronzed decor in the backdrop. Hopefully this year, to save us some tears, she’ll wear something more appropriate.
5. Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missned's New Groove
Now hear us out. Jog your memory back to your cartoon-watching days and picture in your mind (or just Google it) Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove. This head to toe purple look is giving us serious Yzma vibes, even down to the dangling earrings.
4. Meghan Markle's short-sighted suit
Becoming a Duchess has worked wonders for Meghan Markle. Back in 2016, the former actress could be seen wearing eyesores of outfits like this to pretty high-profile events. She’s lucky her toned legs and cute footwear choice make up for this tragic two piece set!
3. Princess Benedikte Of Denmark
Princess Benedikte of Denmark must not have too excited to attend the 70th Birthday Of Hm King Constantine since she showed up in this flagrant gown. We wouldn’t be surprised if news broke that Princess Benedikte’s dress was actually fashioned with old pairs of silk pajamas! She’s not fooling us for a second.
2. Princess Deena Al Juhani Abdulaziz's artful smock
Saudi Princess Deena Al Juhani Abdulaziz is a big fan of fashion week shows and the high fashion industry. While avant garde-wear has a subjective feel for everyone, we can’t find any flattering angle to this purple and pink smock.
1. Princess Diana's choker choice
Describing Princess Diana as a rule follower would be a complete lie. Known for twisting a couple royal rules here and there, the late Lady Diana once decided to wear a diamond and emerald necklace given to her as a gift strapped across her forehead like a poorly constructed tiara. The look was undoubtedly iconic, but definitely not one to replicate!
