Of course the first big Royal tour of 2018 has to happen smack in the middle of awards season. Time stops for neither royals, nor peasant fashion bloggers. Let’s dive into an exciting journey to the land of reindeer, IKEA, and gravlax!

Royals: Meghan Markle at the Endeavour Awards

When I covered Meghan’s January engagements I said “she’s shown a tendency towards pants and messy hair, so I look forward to hopefully seeing her try her hand at cocktail wear and an updo next month”….

It may still be the beginning of the month, but Meghan’s latest outing fulfills neither of my wishes. Won’t she think of all the poor fashion wonks across the pond!?

Awards Season is a real bitch. And then the royals have to go and leave the house. Not to mention, I am completely ignoring Paris Fashion Week at the moment! Don’t bring out your tiny violins for my just yet, I’m holding my own – although dreadfully behind on the comings and goings of Meghan and Harry. Consider this your official January update on these crazy kids.

Royals: Princess Eugenie Gets Engaged!

2018 will be a rare “two royal wedding” year, and personally, I could not be more excited!

On January 22, Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of Princess Eugenie of York to her longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank. They will marry this fall at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – the same location Harry and Meghan have chosen. Eugenie is one of Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren, and the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, Duchess of York. She is eighth in the line of succession to the throne.

It doesn’t get much more official for Meghan than the annual Christmas day walk to church at Sandringham.

Royals: Meghan and Harry’s Engagement Phohtos

Yesterday, Kensington Palace released Meghan and Harry’s official engagement portraits as a holiday gift to us all. They were shot by Alexi Lubomirski who’s done a lot of celebrity and fashion photography, at Frogmore House, Windsor. They look so happy, particularly in the third picture which was an outtake they released.

These are gorgeous and intimate, and definitely a departure from past royal engagement portraits. But then again, Harry has always done things differently – as the “spare” he has more latitude to put his stamp on things, rather than take directive from The Firm.

I like Meghan’s dress a lot, although they look like they’re dressed for two different parties, and I am also very over the sheer trend. The gown is Ralph and Russo Winter 2016, costs $75,000, and was likely lined before she wore it if the Palace had anything to say about it.

Any good royal watcher worth their salt is of course wondering who Meghan will enlist to design her wedding dress, and Ralph and Russo is the first designer she’s worn who actually dabbles in bridal wear. They actually might be a good bet – it’s a British line, they know their way around a wedding gown, and they’re beloved by the fashion elite. If Meghan’s sending us a sign, It’s one I could definitely get on board with!

Royals: Kate Middleton Leaves The House

This is the Kate Uniform. Just, the most Kate-iest outfit. She has been wearing those same Penelope Chilvers boots since she first met William, and the Barbour jacket is a classic. She was visiting the Robin Hood Primary school to celebrate their work with the Royal Horticultural Society.
