Best Royal Tour Style Moments

On the 24th of September the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, joined by their two children George and Charlotte, will embark on a one week visit to British Columbia and Yukon, Canada. This much anticipated visit will mark their second official tour of Canada, with the Royal couple having visited the nation shortly after their wedding in 2011.

While there are many reasons to love Royal tours, there is one thing that stands out for us in particular… the clothes! Whether its the bright colours of an Indian excursion, the woolly hats of a trip to Canada, or the timeless gloves that know no borders, some of the most exciting Royal fashion has come from these trips abroad. So, in light of the Royals’ upcoming trip, we thought we’d take a look back at some of our favourite fashion moments from these Royal excursions.

Luckily, we recently had the opportunity to see one of these gorgeous outfits in person during the Fashioning a Reign exhibition at Buckingham Palace. Designed by Norman Hartnell, this blue and gold number was worn by her Majesty the Queen during a visit to the Netherlands in 1958 and is on display at Buckingham Palace until the 2nd October. It’s true to say that the pictures really do this outfit no justice and, if you can, we’d advise popping to the palace to sneak a peak at the real thing!

It’s true, it’s not all glitz and glamour, Royal Tours are meticulously planned and extremely busy. Frankly we don’t know how they’re going to manage to fit this all into one week. On one day alone they can have up to 6 or 7 engagements- not quite the relaxing holiday the Royals had in mind!

To name a few- the pair will be unveiling a new plaque paying tribute to the veterans of Canada’s involvement in the Afghanistan conflict, they will meet with the team at Sheway, a charity that has achieved remarkable things for vulnerable mothers who are battling substance abuse, and will also visit the Immigration Services Society of British Columbia- discussing issues such as housing, education and medical care in light of the Syrian refugee crisis. Nevertheless, it is sure to be a challenging and yet highly rewarding trip!

We hope the young Royal family have the most wonderful time abroad and here’s wishing them a safe and happy journey (particularly to Princess Charlotte who will be joining her family abroad for the first time!)

Bon Voyage!
