Coincidentally, the wife of Prince Edward also shares her birthday with another royal – Queen Mathilde of Belgium – who commemorated her special day with a newly released photo on Instagram. 

Continuing to cement their status as some of Europe’s best-dressed royals, Queen Letizia of Spain and Queen Rania of Jordan have also provided winter fashion inspiration. Modelling everything from statement coats and leather leggings to pastel shackets on their outings, the pair are clearly pros at nailing business chic.

And of course, in a standout moment, Letizia paid a sweet tribute to her mother-in-law Queen Sofia as she stepped out in a rarely seen, vintage Valentino gown from her predecessor’s collection. Get the lowdown on our favourite royal looks of the week…

The monarch wowed in a two-tone Valentino gown on loan from Queen Sofia

Attending a diplomatic reception at the Royal Palace in Madrid on Monday, Queen Letizia had fans swooning over her vintage two-tone gown – and it has a sweet story behind it. 

Paying tribute to her mother-in-law and royal predecessor, the monarch’s dress was first worn by Queen Sofia in 1977 at Gymnich castle, during a state visit to Germany. Adding a few flourishes of her own, Letizia customised the floral Valentino dress, which featured a floral bodice and a vibrant green skirt, with a slightly different belt, swapping Sofia’s tie-up bow design for a more minimalist style.

Queen Rania of Jordan
