18 Gorgeous Photos of Royals at the Met Gala Over the Years

From state dinners to coronations and royal weddings, there are many events where we can expect to see the world’s royals show off their million-dollar smiles, impeccably coiffed hair, and incredible fashion looks. Some other events, like awards shows and movie premieres, might have an occasional headline-making royal appearance but nothing’s ever guaranteed. At the Met Gala, for example, it’s somewhat of a rare occurrence. (Although we’ll continue dreaming about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry strutting up the stairs this year!)

Over the years, only a few royals have graced the step of the Met in its annual gala. In 2016, for example, Queen Rania of Jordan took everyone’s breath away in a black and silver feathered Valentino gown. In that same year, Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco, Grace Kelly’s granddaughter, also walked the carpet in a layered Gucci multi-colored dress and posed to cameras with 30 Seconds to Mars vocalist Jared Leto.

Most famously, Princess Diana attended the star-studded event back in 1996. At the event, Diana turned heads in a figure-hugging navy dress with black lace trim. Talk about a statement dress!
