From creating headlines across the world at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding with their eccentric hats to more understated styles in the late 2010s and early 2020s, Express.co.uk exclusively spoke to fashion experts about the style evolution of the two princesses. Fashion designer Melita Latham from Melita Latham London, spoke to Express.co.uk about Beatrice and Eugenie’s fashion growth. Melita said: “Eugenie and Beatrice have certainly had the most privileged of upbringings.
“As young Princesses, they certainly pushed the boundaries of their royal ‘guidelines’.
“Short skirts, above the knee dresses, but never really straying outside of respectable.
“Yes, they sported outrageous headwear on occasion, as younger ladies, possibly struggling to find some way of demonstrating their ability to be simply ‘teenagers’ but without the flexibility that ‘normal’ youngsters sometimes are allowed.
“An outrageous hat is about as daring as you can get as a young royal.
“As they have matured, their dress has certainly become more akin to their mum’s style.
“Eugenie recently becoming a mum herself, has both the royal demeanour, coupled with a real down to earth approach.
“In a recent Instagram post (to thank frontline workers), wearing an open-necked military-style blouse, perfectly complimenting her red hair, she looked amazing, stylish and approachable. Motherhood rarely looks as good.
“Beatrice, while the older sister, still loves to ‘wow’ her audience. She is still, very much ‘young at heart’.
“Her current dress sense, designed to demonstrate her personality, as much as her social media.
“’When life gives you melons, make lemons or something’, Beatrice wrote in an Instagram post, and her dress style is just as lively.
“It’s certainly lovely to see her in a figure-hugging lace piece at the races, or less formal bikini covering summer dress while on holiday with her partner.”
Abbey Booth is a personal stylist and creator of ‘Stories With Clothes’, and spoke to Express.co.uk about Beatrice and Eugenie’s drastic fashion changes.
Abbey said: “Princess Beatrice, Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York’s eldest daughter made fashion headlines for her choice of wedding dress last year, showing how re-using and repurposing old clothes is for everyone, including royalty.
“She chose to wear a vintage Norman Hartnell gown on loan from Her Majesty which suited her quirky style and interest in British designers in particular.
“With a burgeoning interest in fashion, she has sat front row at Fashion Week as well as being a guest at the Met Ball in 2018 where she wore a stunning royal blue high-necked maxi dress by Alberta Ferretti, Royal Blue being one of her favourite colours.
“Her style, much like her sisters, has evolved from an experimental phase of dramatic over-sized hats and more voluminous styles in her youth to more refined and elegant shapes and designs which suit her slender frame.
“Slated in the press for their choice of hats and in the case of Princess Eugenie, her crumpled and shapeless Vivienne Westwood outfit at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, the sisters since then have opted for more polished outfits.
“Though, Eugenie does still love to wear an A-line skirt and adores bright colours too, often seen in red and bold prints.
“Princess Eugenie’s style has really evolved since her engagement in 2018 to Jack Brooksbank’s where it seems her confidence grew and she began to wear more form-fitting, elegant styles yet still with personality and a youthful nod, such as her 1960’s inspired outfit to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May 2018.
“Fast forward to October 2018 and her stunning low-backed, long-sleeve Peter Pilotto wedding dress which celebrated her scoliosis scar, saying ‘I wanted my wedding dress to show my scar, it’s a way of getting rid of the taboo’ – was a pivotal moment for her as she was suddenly relatable and had done something brave and beautiful, which enabled conversations about embracing ourselves as we are.
“Then she topped the memorable day off with that stunning Zac Posen rose gown she slipped into for the evening reception!
“Both women enjoy experimenting with their fashion choices and why not, style is an evolution after all.
“They both appear to love print, colour and embroidery too, though often look most at ease in more simply styled looks such as the chic rust-coloured silk skirt and black blazer outfit Princess Beatrice wore to the Lenny Kravitz & Dom Perignon Assemblage exhibition in 2019.
“Also for Princess Eugenie of York when attending the Misha Nonoo Pop-Up Launch Event in New York City, 2019.”
