Silver Jubilee: The glamorous royals ageing gracefully

  • Princess Caroline of Hanover

    As the eldest daughter of Princess Grace of Monaco, it is unsurprising that Princess Caroline has inherited her style icon mother’s chic approach to ageing. The 64-year-old has fully embraced getting older, refusing to dye her newly silver locks back to their brunette roots, and rocking a chic age-appropriate bob.

  • Sophie, Countess of Wessex

    The 56-year-old wife of Prince Edward is chicness personified, with her elegant blonde locks, natural make-up and smart wardrobe. Her go-to brands include the likes of Emilia Wickstead and Suzannah, while she has a knack for accessorising with panache – her collection of hats and fascinators are something to behold.

  • Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned of Qatar

    One of the most put-together and glamorous women in the world, no one does colour coordination or wears a turban as well as Sheikha Mozah. The wife of the former Emir of Qatar and one of the richest women in the world, the 62-year-old has the skin of a woman decades young, thanks in large part no doubt to her access to impeccable skincare and make-up.

  • Princess Astrid of Belgium

    King Philippe of Belgium’s younger sister has always been elegant, having inherited the looks of her namesake grandmother and famous beauty, Queen Astrid of Sweden. At 59, Princess Astrid is still active on the international social scene, often dispatched to royal events on behalf of her brother. With a fondness for Chanel and an excellent cache of jewels and pearls on standby, she always oozes grace – something that is complimented by her minimal make-up and no-fuss bob.

  • Crown Princess Marie-Chantal

    Once one third of the famous Miller sisters – a trio of New York society beauties who dominated the social scene of the 1990s and who all married wealthy, powerful men – Marie-Chantal joined the Greek royal family when she wed Prince Pavlos in 1995. As she has gotten older, her wardrobe and beauty look have both evolved, with the 51-year-old favouring tailored looks, midi-lengths and glossy highlights, with red lipstick being her secret weapon.

  • Empress Masako of Japan

    Refined beauty Empress Masako is known for her poise, having been educated at Harvard and Oxford, and working as a diplomat before ascending to the Chrysanthemum Throne in 2019 as the consort of Emperor Naruhito. The 57-year-old has a sophisticated and timeless style and approach to ageing, preferring demure dresses, tasteful accessories and minimal make-up, keeping her thick dark hair neat in a low bun most of the time.
