Move over Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge: If there’s one royal to watch when it comes to fashion, it’s Princess Beatrice.

The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson has seriously stepped up her fashion game over the past 18 months, transforming her into a style icon for the masses.

Recently, the Princess of York has championed luxury labels Emilia Wickstead and Roksanda as well as high street favourites such as Whistles - and she’s not afraid to make a statement, either.

We all remember when the then 22-year-old stepped out in that toilet-seat Philip Treacy hat at Kate and William’s wedding back in 2011.

From the Blair Waldorf-inspired headbands to whimsical floral dresses, Princess Beatrice manages to look elegant in everything she wears.

While her birthday celebrations are expected to stay private, she will no doubt be spending it with her friends, family and her new beau, having made her first public appearance with him in March at the National Portrait Gallery gala and later at Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston’s wedding in May.

Could we be getting a royal engagement announcement soon? Who knows. But for now, let’s have a look back at the young royal’s most stylish moments and you’ve guessed it: we’ve either found the exact item or hunted down something near identical so you can channel your inner Bea.
