BAZAAR.com is a leading authority on all things royals-and we're ready to spill the tea. Our host, comedian and social media sensation Rickey Thompson, is breaking down the latest and greatest happenings inside and out of Buckingham Palace in our new series, Royal Tea.

In the latest episode of Royal Tea, host Rickey Thompson takes the throne to detail the style evolution of the royal family.

He starts-where else?-with Princess Diana's incomparable style, taking a tour of her ladylike shift dresses and suits, fashion risks, and-of course-that iconic revenge dress. And don't forget her legendary athleisure lewks that currently inspire It girl of the moment Emily Ratajkowski.

"Here's what I have to say about these royal ladies: They can work!"


From there, it's a trip to the past with the "OG" Princess Margaret, who Thompson says brought "fashun to the palace." Margaret favored museum-worthy Dior gowns and fur coats and shy away from rocking risqué ensembles. Queen Elizabeth's regal rainbow style also gets a shout-out.

Our host then turns to the younger royals and their penchant for fashion. The Duchess of Cambridge embraces printed A-line dresses, tailored coats, and often nods to Princess Diana's style. Thompson calls the Duchess of Sussex's looks "very chic, contemporary, and very streamlined." And finally, he throws it back to the early- and mid-200s for a critique of royal style before they were royal. Don't miss a moment.
