Royalty Costume Ideas


We have found an increase with the amount of Royalty costume themed fancy dress parties over the last few years mainly due to Prince Williams’ marriage to Kate Middleton and of course, The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

You can use a general Royalty theme, or you can split it into:

  • Kings & Queens
  • Prince & Princesses

There are obvious overlaps between these two themes, but each do give an interesting array of costumes to choose from.

Our costume suggestions for each of these themes are found to the left of this post, whether you group them as one theme is entirely up to you.
