When it comes to royal style, Queen Rania is often cited among the most chic.

The Jordanian royal, who was born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents, married King Abdullah II in 1993 and has been queen since 1999 — which means she's been stepping out for red carpets, forums, public appearances and galas for close to 30 years.

While Queen Rania has always dressed with an innate elegance, her style has naturally evolved over those decades, as she takes in some of each year's passing trends.

From embracing co-ordinating two-pieces and formal suiting to welcoming more colour, flowing fabrics and directional cuts into her wardrobe, Queen Rania has long managed to fuse high fashion with an event-appropriate slant.

She often sports pieces by regional designers, including Lebanese atelier Elie Saab; Jordanian-Palestinian label Hama Fashion; Lebanese-Mexican designer Darin Hachem; and Saudi brand Ashi Studio. Internationally, she has worn pieces by Givenchy, Valentino and Ralph & Russo.

During a visit to Abu Dhabi in February, where she and her husband jointly received the Zayed Award for Human Fraternity, she wore two vibrant outfits for the public events, sporting looks by international designers including Erdem, Emilia Wickstead, Chloe, Tom Ford and Gucci.

In November, when welcoming Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to Jordan, she wore a V-neck Dior midi coat, finished with a gold belt, also by Dior, and matching Louis Vuitton handbag.

Here, we take a look back at the royal's sartorial evolution, from her earliest years after King Abdullah II ascended the throne right up until the modern day.
