As we celebrate the life of Queen Elizabeth, who passed away on September 8, 2022, at the age of 96, leaving the crown to King Charles III, it's clear what a life of service and, of course, style England's longest-serving monarch had. Before Princess Diana made puffy sleeves happen and Kate Middleton was perfecting the art of tiara-wearing, Princess Margaret and Queen Elizabeth were undeniable fashionistas. And while Netflix's The Crown (opens in new tab) has given British monarchy nerds a glimpse into just how gorgeous Margaret and Elizabeth's clothing was, nothing beats the real royal deal. Here, a tribute to Princess Margaret and the late Queen in their youth.
