What’s that you say? You want more stories about royals? Well, ask and you shall receive. While Meghan Markle has been shying away from press while on maternity leave—and rightfully so—I’ve been chomping at the bit to see some great royal outfits. Kate Middleton has definitely been delivering lately, but I’ve also taken the opportunity to walk down memory lane. I’ve broken down Princess Grace’s favorite wardrobe basics and Princess Diana’s best vacation looks, and now I decided to set off to discover what royals consistently wear while traveling to NYC.
Princess Charlene of Monaco and Meghan Markle, for instance, are on the same page about packing their best black slouchy boots for NYC. (Markle memorably wore hers to celebrate her highly publicized baby shower in New York.) Princess Diana and Queen Silvia of Sweden both were photographed in New York wearing cap-toe pumps, while black skinny jeans have also been a requirement for royals in the Big Apple. Scroll down to see the four items princesses and queens have loved to wear in New York City.
Royals love sleek, sophisticated, pointy-toe pumps, but when traveling to NYC, they love switching things up and wearing slouchy boots—with head-to-toe dark outfits per NYC’s unwritten fashion rule, of course.
A trip to the Big Apple would not be complete without arguably the most versatile wardrobe staple: black skinny jeans. In the past, both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have styled them similarly in NYC, teaming them with knee-length coats and simple pumps.
It’s no wonder why royals love cap-toe pumps, as they’re a perennial classic. The late Princess Diana and the current Queen of Sweden both wore the timeless shoes in NYC, so you can be sure we’re taking notes.
It’s no secret that New York girls love head-to-toe black—something royals like Princess Beatrice of York and Princess Madeleine of Sweden definitely are aware of while making appearances in the city.
