Wouldn't you love to sit in a carriage, wear a fancy crown and lock arms with Prince Charming? Why not, right? In reality, the modern day royal woman is nothing like Cinderella. Sure there is the glitz and glamour, but these days we see so-called princesses (who are usually duchesses) at charity events, playing sports and acting as ambassadors for important causes.

Recently, it was reported by the Daily Mail that Prince Harry and singer Mollie King, of The Saturdays, were seen on several "secret dates" in London.

Which got us thinking, what does it take to land and date a royal? What does one's fashion sense have to be?

Here are seven stylish gals who, at some point, have won the hearts of a royal (we'd like to think it's because of their smart sartorial sense).

  • Kate Middleton

    Kate Middleton's style has always been dubbed as the classic lady. The Duchess of Cambridge is often seen in bright pinks, wrap dresses and who can forget her classic and one-of-a-kind wedding gown.

  • Pippa Middleton

    Pippa's style however is more laid back. We like her black blazers, over-sized sunglasses and, when she wants to, her body hugging gowns.
