The weather got colder and brisker this week which seemed to press a button somewhere in the Royal Wardrobe which removed sleeves, coats and any semblance of warmth from this week's style choices. And there wasn't a sign of a shiver anywhere. Here are five style statements from this week's Royal Wardrobe - don't expect any coats.

Felipe and his two queens

They are among the most high profile prizes handed out in Spain and a regular point in the royal calendar. The Princess of Asturias Awards recognise excellence in the arts, sciences and humanities and are presented every year at a glittering ceremony in Oviedo. And while the royal whose name they carry, Leonor of Asturias, is too young to do the honours, there is still plenty of regal presence at the big event. For King Felipe took the two queens in his life, Letizia and Sofia, along as always for this royal highlight of the year.
