There were Royals aplenty at Milan Fashion Week, as Lady Amelia Windsor and Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece modelled on the catwalk for Dolce & Gabbana.
Pictures of the Royals appeared on Instagram of the two ladies modelling various pieces for the fashion show. Lady Amelia tweeted a picture of a portfolio photograph of her outfit, and Princess Maria-Olympia put up an image of herself walking down the catwalk.
Zenouska Mowatt (Princess Alexandra’s granddaughter and Amelia’s cousin) tweeted a catwalk image with the tagline ‘Congratulations my little cherry!!! SO proud of you @amelwindsor’ with a heart emoji.
Amelia, 21, is the granddaughter of Prince Edward and Katharine, Duke and Duchess of Kent, through their son, George, Earl of St Andrews. As a member of the extended Royal Family, Lady Amelia lives a relatively low-key lifestyle, attending only Trooping the Colour and the Christmas Lunch at Buckingham Palace. Tatler called her the ‘most beautiful member of the Royal Family’ in their April 2016 issue.
She is currently 36th in line to the British throne, and studies French and Italian at Edinburgh University, for which she will be spending a year split between Paris and Rome to help learn the languages. Her mother, Sylvana, is a historian at Cambridge University.
Amelia took time out of her university schedule to model for the Italian label in a black dress with pink rose pattern – and a tiara! It seems she is set for a career in the fashion industry, having done an internship with Chanel.
Princess Maria Olympia, 20, is the oldest child and only daughter of Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece and his wife, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal.
In her D&G ensemble was a high-waisted black skirt, bralet and shrug jacket, with a jaunty headpiece.
The Princess studies photography in New York, at Parsons School of Design. Maria-Olympia has already had a number of modelling stints for various publications, including Teen Vogue, Tatler, Hola!, and Town & Country, and even interned in Dior’s couture department when she was 17.
Since the Greek Royal Family were exiled in 1973, the family have retained their titles but worked for a living elsewhere. Maria-Olympia grew up in London, where her father works as an investment consultant and her mother as the director of her own children’s fashion brand.
