Bethan is fashion news and features director at The Telegraph.

Royal style is a personal and professional obsession. She has written hundreds of articles dissecting the messages behind what the royal family wear and has interviewed many of the designers and stylists behind some of the most memorable looks worn by the Queen, Princess Diana, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex.

Her fascination with the royal family goes back to 1996/ 1997 when, as a nine/ ten-year-old, she would devour her mother’s Hello! magazines. She remembers being captivated by Princess Diana’s glamour and that her death was a defining moment of her childhood. Only later, as a fashion journalist, did she realise that behind the gloss of royal clothing was meaning and soft power.

She has appeared on BBC, Sky, Channel 4 and ITV speaking about royal fashion and featured in ITV’s Royal Wives of Windsor documentary in 2018. She was shortlisted for Fashion Journalist of the Year at the 2018 and 2019 Press Awards.

Bethan’s first book, The Duchess of Cambridge: A Decade of Modern Royal Style, will be published by Ryland, Peters & Small in February 2021.
