Belgium National Day 2012: Royals Celebrate In Style (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

As July continues on, we not only get more days of national pride, but also more events where state figures can show off their sense of style. After a fashion-filled July 4th in America and Bastille Day in France, Belgium celebrated their national day yesterday -- and the royal style didn't disappoint.

All of the Belgian royals gathered for Belgium National Day to watch a series of parades and commemorate the oath of the first king of Belgium Leopold I. Princess Mathilde looked elegant as she watched the military parade wearing a cream boatneck top, printed pencil skirt and black-rimmed hat. Princess Claire went the more avant-garde route in an orange-striped dress and wide-brimmed hat.

No national day of pride would be complete without a fantastic show of traditional uniforms, so the men of the family made sure to don their smartest Belgian hats and swords. Click through to see more of the royal style -- including that of two queens -- on Belgium National Day. What are your favorite looks?
