Style Expert Reveals That Color Blue Suits Queen Elizabeth That’s Why She Wears It To Royal Weddings

However, style expert Nasty Gal spoke to the publication to explain why the queen opted to wear blue outfits to all four royal weddings. They stressed that the color blue doesn’t cause bad luck for couples. In fact, it’s the exact opposite.


“There’s an old superstition on wearing blue to weddings - ‘Married in blue, you will always be true.’ Therefore, it’s surprising that the Queen has worn blue to so many royal weddings which have ended in divorce. Blue can often symbolize strength and authority, so it’s definitely a color that’s fit for a Queen. It’s interesting that both the Queen and the Queen Mother wore blue to Diana and Sarah Ferguson’s weddings. The similar color choices show the unity and bond the two had, showing the love the Queen has for her mother and family. They also both wore blue dresses to Prince William’s christening,” they told Express.

The style experts also claimed that the color blue is a cold shade, unlike green, purple, and yellow, which are oftentimes described as warm hues. But warmer colors reportedly match the general feeling of weddings.

Queen Elizabeth Wore Yellow, Green To Cambridges And Sussexes Weddings For A Reason

Several years later, the queen attended the royal weddings of Prince William and Kate Middleton and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But for both occasions, she did not wear a blue outfit. Instead, she wore yellow attire to the wedding of the Cambridges, and she chose green when she attended the Sussexes’ wedding.


According to the style experts, both colors represent spring, growth, and new beginnings. And these are the descriptions that can be used when talking about the new generation of royals.

Meanwhile, the queen’s daughter-in-law, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, previously revealed why her grandmother typically wears bright colors instead of dark ones. She said that Her Majesty wants to make sure that royal fans can easily spot her amid a massive crowd of people.

“She needs to stand out for people to be able to say ‘I saw the Queen.’ Don’t forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, 10, 15 deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the queen’s hat as she went past,” Sophie said in the documentary The Queen at 90 (via Reader’s Digest).
