Surprise, surprise! No one (not even royals) are immune to the frigid air that rolls around once November hits. The royal family spends most of their time across the pond, and the gloomy weather over there can sometimes be a little too much to handle, but luckily there are no royal protocols against bundling up for the weather. In fact, the royals have sported some of the best winter outfits we've ever seen (we're looking at you miss Kate Middleton), and although there are unfortunately no pictures of Queen Elizabeth in a parka, this family is not afraid to block out the chilly air with some top-notch outerwear.

Even though we're pretty sure Kate's famous coat-dresses could withstand most things, there are some weather conditions that not even the Duchess of Cambridge's trusty style can handle. We all know that Kate and her duchess counterpart, Meghan Markle, know how to put together the perfect winter outfit, but it's really special when we get to see Prince William or Prince Harry all bundled up. Normally, these men like to stick it out and just wear their suits or a light outer coat. 

But sometimes even they have to cave in and get bundled up. It doesn't happen very often, but now that we are reaching the season for coats and scarves, it's time to take a look back and see all the instances where the royals had to ditch fashion (somewhat) in exchange for warmth. So, because the cold weather is quickly approaching, here are 20 times the royals looked completely bundled up for winter.

  • All Coordinated

    Look ... we love a perfectly coordinated ensemble, and no one knows how to give us exactly what we want more than Kate Middleton. The duchess somehow managed to match her hat, gloves, and clutch purse perfectly, and we just want to know how she does it.

  • Classic Family Photos

    Honestly, the Cambridges could look like any normal family out on wintery vacation together. If we didn't know any better, we definitely wouldn't guess that everyone in this photo is in line for the British throne (except for Kate, of course).

  • The Fab Four

    We don't know for sure just how close the Fab Four actually are together, but we do know that they all brought their best holiday fashion to the table for last year's Christmas walk. We especially love Kate's on-theme ensemble!

  • Perfectly Coordinated

    We know they didn't plan this, but Prince Harry's gray and black winter outfit perfectly matches Meghan's all-black coat ensemble. Looking all bundled up as never looked so cute, right? We also want to know how Meghan managed to keep her scarf perfectly wrapped the entire time.

  • Matching Accessories

    If there's one thing that Kate excels at, it's matching her accessories to her outfit seamlessly. I mean ... seriously. How did she manage to find a scarf and a handbag that matched the green in her coat so perfectly??

    Meghan is certainly no stranger to winters in the Big Apple, so she knew to go dark with her ensembles. The duchess fit in with the city perfectly, and the sharp winter air didn't seem to faze her one bit. 

  • Seriously All Bundled Up

    We rarely get to see Prince William this bundled up for the winter weather, and we can honestly say that one of the many joys in life is seeing the duke in a pom-pom winter hat. Kate looked fabulous as always. 

  • Christmas Debut

    Meghan went fairly subtle for her royal Christmas walk debut with a super chic camel-colored coat and a matching hat. Harry, of course, didn't stray far from what he knows best and went with his classic gray coat look.

  • William's Chic Scarf

    Seriously, we rarely see Will in anything other than his usual suit, but there's just something about seeing him all bundled up in a scarf that we just can't help but love. He certainly can look chic just like his beautiful wife!

  • Beaming in Burgundy

    We just love when Kate breaks out new outerwear, and we particular dig this burgundy ensemble from the duchess. Will, of course, went with his usual black coat and navy scarf, but Kate likes to keep things fresh.

  • Staying Warm To Greet Fans

    Even in Meghan's preroyal days, she was attracting quite the crowd at royal events, so it was pretty important that she stay warm while greeting all of her fans. Luckily, she had chic and stylish coats like this wrap coat to help her get the job done.

  • The Perfect Christmas Look

    Well ... we found it folks. OK, Kate found it -- the perfect Christmas look. The duchess was moving along in her pregnancy with Prince Louis during the 2017 Christmas walk, but that didn't stop her from breaking out this adorable holiday ensemble.

  • An Ode to England

    Meghan really started walking on the British side of things when she began attending official royal events with Prince Harry, and this plaid coat was certainly one of them. It's something we definitely wish we had hanging in our closet.

  • Saying Farewell

    Sorry, Will, but like with most of her outfits, Kate has completely trumped your look. Kate looks like a perfect winter vision in her fur-lined emerald coat and matching furry hat. Kate sure does like this style of hat, and we have to say it works for her.

  • Chilly for St. Patrick's Day

    In England, it can still be pretty brisk and chilly on St. Patrick's Day, but luckily for Kate, she has the perfect collection of dark green and emerald green coats that fit the occasion seamlessly. Even when she rewears a coat, she always makes it look fresh and new.

  • Straight Up Beaming

    We don't know what was making Meghan blush like that, but it certainly wasn't just the chilly weather. We also don't know why Meghan hasn't broken out this coat again, because it's definitely one of our favorite pre-duchess looks.

  • A Russian Doll

    Kate looks like a perfect Russian doll in this huge furry hat and her light blue coat. Seriously ... only Kate Middleton could make a hat like that look like something straight off of a runway. Although, knowing the duchess, it probably was.

  • Ready for the Slopes

    Kate and Will are known to be big fans of skiing, so they are no strangers to the frigid snow air, and it looks as if they really came prepared for this royal engagement. We never thought two people could look this good in parkas, but well, that's the Cambridges for you.

  • Chic in the Rain

    We really don't know how Kate managed to look this perfect and chic in the middle of a rainstorm. Fans were also quick to notice her new emerald green coat that she broke out for this event, and her matching scarf and gloves were the perfect touch.

  • Matching Dark Shades

    Both Meghan and Harry went with darker shades during one of Miss Markle's preroyal engagements. The soon-to-be duchess was still trying out her royal style, and we think this black wrap dress with a matching scarf is a look she should certainly bring back.
