Jordan's Queen Rania and The Netherlands' Queen Máxima put on united stylish display
Royal fascination is at fever pitch.
While the allure of Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle, and Prince William and wife Kate Middleton continues to steadily captivate the world, royal families outside the UK are enjoying a renewed interest in their lives - and their outfits.
The Netherlands' Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander are hosting one of the world's most impeccably dressed royals, Queen Rania of Jordan, who is on a two-day tour of The Hague with her husband King Abduallah.
And both have been incorporating their signature style into their 48 hour retreat, beginning with yesterday's introduction, where Máxima wore an ankle length camel cape coat by Claes Iversen and her signature accessory, an oversized hat, this time made of gold straw. Rania, similarly, took inspiration from vintage wear, opting for a mint blue button down coat by Salvatore Ferragamo and a white neck scarf that appears to be more than a little inspired by Jackie O.
On Tuesday night, at a dinner at The Hague's Noodeinde Palace, Máxima's ruffled yellow Claes Iversen gown stole the show, as the 46-year-old famously prefers colour and the brighter, the better. Rania preferred a more understated look with a structured velvet gown, with embroidered floral detail.
It was back to business again today as the pair coordinated their grey looks, with Máxima returning to ruffles in her dress (and another statement hat) and Rania choosing a polo neck and Ferragamo blazer.
It's been a busy week for European royals - over in France, French president Emmanuel Macron and wife Brigitte have been hosting Luxembourg's Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Terese at the the Élysée Palace.
On Tuesday night, the French first lady stunned in a white gown with dramatic shoulder sequin detail in a design custom made by Louis Vuitton, her preferred designer.
