SMT Live: HRH Launch Party

Date: November 17

Time: 8 PM ET, 7 PM CT


There’s always more than what meets the eye, especially when it comes to royal style.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are global style icons, their every fashion choice chronicled and celebrated. Knowing they stand in this sartorial spotlight, the duchesses select clothes that send a message about their values, interests, and priorities. Their thoughtful strategies follow in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales, two towering figures known for using their personal style to great acclaim.

Take a closer look at the fascinating stories behind these incredible women with a not-to-be-missed event to celebrate the release of HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style by Elizabeth Holmes.

  • A behind-the-scenes look at HRH, moderated by Hitha Palepucreator of #5SmartReads (@hithapalepu)

  • A signed and shipped copy of HRH (the perfect holiday gift!)
