The name Egbert doesn't sound super stylish, but he is the one who established a stable and lasting rule over England and started the House of Wessex. If it weren't for him, we wouldn't have some of the biggest style inspirations throughout history. We are now in a period where England is being ruled by the House of Windsor and Queen Elizabeth and her relatives. The Windsors have been ruling the Monarchy since 1910 and there's no sign of it changing any time soon. Prince Charles is set to take the throne after Queen Elizabeth's reign has come to an end, and Prince William will take over after that.
But what about all of the eras of reign prior to where we are now? Each of them is marked in history by technological advances, advances in science and medicine and even societal and industrial revolutions. Just like anything else changes in life, so do the fashions that correspond with each of these royal eras. However, the royal family was never looked to for style inspiration and design concepts until recently thanks to social media and the updated looks the family, especially the ladies, have been sporting. Which royal era should your signature look be from? Take this quiz to find out!
