1. Mary's beige dress and brown belt (I didn't realize that she lost so much weight until I see again her engagement pictures)

2. Lalla Salma's orange caftan and gold belt

3. Kate's blue dress

I liked also Letizia's white suit, but it looked more like working suit, than an outfit for announcement of engagement.

My worst should be Madeleine's pinkish dress - that was way too sugary and old-fashioned for my personal taste.
Quoting myself... Hm.. Having seen many more engagement pics, I have to add Mette-Marit & Mathilde's outfits to the worst, too. They're quite funny actually.
Kate's blue dress wasn't appropriate for an engagement; rather for shopping and coffee with her best friend.
Stephanie de Lannoy surprised me quite a lot with her choice. The coral dress was so fresh and lovely, IMO.
My top favourite e-outfit is still Letizia's suit, looking forward to Prince Harry's engagement now.

Yes she wore a coat on her dress and posed in the balcony and also inside, but prefer the dress without the coat.

My favourite engagement outfits:

- Princess Mary (looked great with coat on as well)
- Princess Victoria
- Princess Maxima
- Princess Grace
- Princess Letizia
- Kate Middleton (I'm not very fond of deep V-cut, but otherwise brilliant choice)

I like Stephanie's engagement outfit. Casual but yet appropriate. She looked relaxed and natural.

the monaco ladies win for me on this one: grace and charlene looked beautiful in their engagement pictures. i loved the white, well-accesorised coat of grace and the turquoise halter neck dress of charlene.
a mention also for grand duchess maria teresa. i liked how demure and classy her outfit looked.

I can not say which is the best, Kate's was lovely, Maxima and Mary also. For Letizia i can't really say. White suit was very nice, but this style was not appropriate for this occasion. It was perfect for a professional dinner, not an engagement! And bright white! Strange!

Thanks for posting. She was perfect. It is a pitty that she gained so much weight, it destroys her. 30y after her husband is still absolutely handsome.

I have to be more precise now - I mean Madeleine's first engagement Don't like her second engagement outfit that much, it's overall too dark for me (I prefer her with blonde hair anyway).
Victoria is unchallenged number 1, she was perfect from head to toe, and Kate's dress was lovely, although I would have preferred a different hairstyle.
Stéphanie's outfit wasn't so spectacular IMO.

I went through the Sartorial splendour page relateg to the emgagement outfits. For me the Queen, then Pcs Elisabeth, is one of the best, and the most ageless ever!
One of the worst, Pcs Mathilde (an outfit to go on shopping)! Speechless for Duchess of York(i would be surprised if she was well dressed!)
Pcs Grace also, despite that she had one of the better wedding dresses ever, her engagement dress was much inferior, slightly failed for her.

My favorite here is Queen Elizabeth. Her outfit is very timeless and elegant.
