Royal family and fashion are always the talk of the town. But Queen Elizabeth's dresses, sense of style, and fashion have remained traditional and personal. Her hats and her umbrella are almost always color-coordinated with her outfits which are mostly bold and bright shades. These colors pop out amidst a crowd of people. And like everything about royal style, even the choice of bright colors is intentional.
According to Town and Country Magazine, Sophie, Countess of Wessex explained her mother-in-law's penchant for rainbow shades in the documentary, The Queen at 90.
"She needs to stand out for people to be able to say 'I saw the Queen,'" she said. "Don't forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, ten, 15 deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen's hat as she went past."
If she wore muted colors, the chances of her blending in with the crowd are too high. Per Telegraph, Robert Hardman, the Queen's biographer, even quoted her once as saying, "I can never wear beige because nobody will know who I am."
Here are some of her most colorful and iconic outfits:
The queen can really carry off any color under the sun, can't she?
