About This Quiz

Royalty is a strange beast in today's world, where democracy and equality are the byword of the day (one hopes!). For millions of people living in constitutional monarchies where the sovereign reigns but does not rule, there is something reassuring about the stability of a monarch. After all, it means having an apolitical figurehead who doesn't have the power to mess up your life and who rises above the daily nonsense of politics. In a polarized world, such unifying figures are valuable.

However, this doesn't mean that they don't have personalities, and express them, too. Since opining on the issues of the day is considered frightfully bad form for princesses and queens, one way they convey messages is through their clothing and jewelry. The Queen of England is particularly good at standing out despite her diminutive height, and deploying her jewels and robes as needed to intimidate and command when she has to. Similarly, Meghan Markle has brought her own modern sensibility to the role of Duchess of Sussex, a royal title she received upon her marriage. Princess Kate - the Duchess of Cambridge - and Princess Grace - the movie star who married the prince of Monaco - have also shown their personalities sartorially.
