这不是什么秘密 lots of thought goes into the British royal family’s style choices, but what part does color play?

凯特·米德尔顿 acted as host on Thursday evening for her second annual Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey. The Princess of Wales, 40, wore a bespoke burgundy coat dress by Epinone London — a shade that proved to be popular with other guests at the event as well. In addition to matching with daughter 夏洛特公主, the royal sported a similar shade to sister Pippa Matthews and Prince William’s cousin Zara Tindall.

威廉王子 and Mike Tindall appeared to match their wives, both wearing ties to match.

伊丽莎白女王‘s trusted aide and friend Angela Kelly wrote about how the royal family approaches colors in her book, The Other Side Of The Coin: 皇后, the Dresser and the Wardrobe. Kelly said that when the late monarch needed an evening dress, she would lay out sketches for the Queen to pick from.

Once Her Majesty has chosen her dress for dinner, a handwritten notice is pinned up in the DressersCorridor detailing what she will be wearing, so that The Queen’s ladiesmaids can select an appropriate dress for the lady they are looking after,” 她写了. “When it comes to the Royal Family, it doesn’t matter if they wear the same colour as The Queen because they are family, and sometimes the ladies will wear cocktail dresses even though The Queen might be wearing a long one.

她继续, “Other guests, 尽管, feel they shouldn’t be in the same colour as Her Majesty, although The Queen would not mind if this did happen.

伊丽莎白女王 also thought about the shade of her outfits, often wearing bright colors for royal engagements to stand out.

在纪录片中 女王在 90, the Queen’s daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex said: “她需要脱颖而出,让人们能够说‘我看到了女王。’ 别忘了当她出现在某个地方时, 人群是两个, 三, 四, 10, 15 深的, 有人希望能够说他们在女王经过时看到了一点女王的帽子。”

Kate’s Christmas concert wasn’t the first time the royals have color-coordinated their ensembles. At June’s Trooping the Colour, the annual celebration of the monarch’s birthday, the royal women mainly stuck to blue hues. 英石. Patrick’s blue is a nod to the original symbolic color of Ireland which can also be representative of sovereignty.

伊丽莎白女王 wore a light blue ensemble embellished with pearl and diamante trim by Kelly with one of her signature wide-brimmed hats that perfectly coordinated with her dress.

Following the Queen’s blue attire, Camilla styled a blue striped dress by Bruce Oldfield with a hat by Philip Treacy, while Kate opted for a white dress and a white and blue Philip Treacy hat, while her three children coordinated in blue.

哈里王子梅根马克尔的 2018 婚礼, green was the color of the day. Not only were their official portraits taken in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle, but it was the shade sported by 伊丽莎白女王, mother of the bride Doria Ragland and Pippa.

It’s not surprising to see the royals coordinate for family portraits either, like Kate and 威廉王子‘s most recent Christmas card photo or the snaps taken to celebrate King Charles’ 70th birthday in 2018 — both of which when with white and blue themes.

In the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new Netflix show 哈利 & 梅根, she shared the thought that went into choosing her outfit colors as a member of the royal family.

Most of the time that I was in the U.K., I rarely wore color. There was thought in that,” 她说. “To my understanding, you could never wear the same color as Her Majesty [伊丽莎白女王] if there’s a group event, but then you also shouldn’t be wearing the same color as one of the other more senior members of the family.

“所以我就像, '好, what’s a color that they’ll probably never wear?’ Camel, beige, white,” 她继续, as photos flashed of her in a tan wrap coat during her first Sandringham Christmas. “So I wore a lot of muted tones, but it was also so I could just blend in. I’m not trying to stand out here. There was no version of me joining this family and me not doing everything I could to fit in. I don’t want to embarrass the family.
