Another week, another roundup of the best royal jewels we saw out and about! This was a good one, with a major diplomatic summit, a state dinner, Trooping the Colour, and Royal Ascot! (Good luck picking a favorite in this week’s poll!)
We’ll begin things again in Belgium this week, where Queen Mathilde wore her classic diamond and pearl earrings (plus bracelets on both wrists) for a visit to a circus school in Brussels on Friday.
On Sunday, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark joined Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Christian in Frederikshoej for a celebration of the 101st anniversary of the reunification with Southern Jutland. She wore diamond and ruby earrings, plus a ruby horseshoe brooch, for the event.
In Rodovre on Saturday, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark left the earrings at home (but brought along a delicate necklace, plus bracelets and rings) for a party ahead of Denmark’s first UEFA Euro 2020 match against Finland.
Queen Maxima of the Netherlands was also in a football state of mind this week. On Sunday, she wore earrings with a rainbow of gems to attend the UEFA Euro 2020 match between the Netherlands and Ukraine in Amsterdam.
Brown statement earrings completed Queen Maxima’s look on Monday, when she attended a symposium of the Money Wise platform in The Hague.
Queen Maxima chose another pair of statement earrings, this time with a large white flower design, for Wednesday’s visit to the Villa Pinedo Foundation, the winner of one of the three Appeltjes van Oranje 2020 prizes.
In Spain, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia had a very busy week. On Monday, Queen Letizia wore her Bulgari aquamarine and diamond hoop earrings as King Felipe received the first Medal of Honour of Andalucia in Seville.
On Tuesday, Queen Letizia wore floral earrings from Yanes, plus her golden oval ring, with a blush-colored lace dress to welcome the President and First Lady of South Korea, Moon Jae-in and Kim Jung-sook, to the Royal Palace in Madrid.
For Tuesday evening’s state dinner at the Royal Palace, which was a toned-down affair due to continuing pandemic restrictions, Queen Letizia wore golden floral earrings that coordinated beautifully with her Dries Van Noten dress.
Letizia reached for a favorite pair of earrings—her golden hoops with bamboo design detailing—for a visit to the ONCE Foundation Headquarters with Kim Jung-sook on Wednesday.
The British royal family had its busiest week in recent memory! Let’s start with an overview of Queen Elizabeth II’s jewels from the week. On Friday, she traveled to Cornwall for a G7 reception and a Big Lunch event. She wore the Botswana Sorghum Brooch for both engagements.
The Queen chose the Jardine Star Brooch for tea with the visiting American President and First Lady, Joe and Jill Biden, at Windsor Castle on Sunday afternoon.
The Duchess of Cornwall was also present for the G7 Summit reception and Big Lunch event in Cornwall on Friday. She wore her pavé-set beaded necklace, layered with her usual favorite pendant necklaces, and pearl drop earrings.
On Tuesday, Charles and Camilla led the royal pack at Royal Ascot. She wore pearls and diamonds, including her four-stranded necklace with the round diamond clasp, for the outing.
Charles and Camilla were at the races at Royal Ascot again on Wednesday. She repeated her pavé-set beaded necklace (again layered with others) and her favorite diamond and pearl drop earrings.
On Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge had a joint engagement with Dr. Jill Biden in Cornwall, where they visited a primary school. Kate wore gold twisted hoop earrings from ASOS for the visit.
That evening, Kate wore diamond earrings from Robinson Pelham and a pearl bracelet from the collection of the late Diana, Princess of Wales for the G7 Summit reception and Big Lunch event.
On Tuesday, the Countess of Wessex wore pavé-set diamond earrings and a necklace with a modern circle pendant at Royal Ascot.
For the second day of the races at Royal Ascot on Wednesday, Sophie wore diamond hoops and a necklace with a pearl pendant.
For Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot on Thursday, Sophie donned her multi-gem cluster earrings.
The Princess Royal was a fixture at Royal Ascot all week—no surprise there! On Tuesday, she wore pearls and her golden horse brooch for the first day of the race meeting.
On Wednesday, Princess Anne donned pearls, button-style earrings, and a gold and gemstone-set floral brooch at the races.
On Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot on Thursday, Princess Anne wore classic diamond and pearl earrings, a triple strand of pearls, and her gold, diamond, and pearl floral brooch.
Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Tindall, was also at Royal Ascot this week. On Tuesday, she wore a pair of diamond and pearl earrings with dark circle pendants.
And on Thursday, Zara chose a pair of earrings with pale gemstone pendants. We also got a glimpse here of her engagement and wedding rings.
