Did you know the one colour that Queen Elizabeth will never wear in public? Known for her brightly coloured power suit-skirt combos, one of the world's most followed style icons will never wear beige to her royal engagements.
Royal biographer Robert Hardman remembers how Queen Elizabeth once told him she can "never wear beige because nobody would know who she is." The 93-year-old royal is always seen in brightly coloured dresses during public engagements to stand out in a crowd as she is 163 cms tall, The Sun reports.
The nonagenarian royal has a wardrobe full of brightly coloured outfits that are colour-coordinated with her hats.
Hardman, in his 2011 biography "Our Queen," revealed that the royal dresses in neutral shades when she is relaxing at Sandringham or Balmoral Castle. The royal author described the Queen as "engagingly modest," despite being one of the most famous women in the world.
Meanwhile, royal author Sali Huges, in her 2019 book titled "Our Rainbow Queen," claims that the Queen's stylists choose a dress for her only after studying her itinerary carefully.
"She won't attend an engagement at a grassy venue, like a racecourse or garden party, in camouflaging green. But she will happily deploy green to stand out where it's needed," she wrote.
The Queen wears her trusted Anello & Davide handmade black patent leather slip-on shoes and carries her black luxury Launer London handbag to finish her look.
The Queen owns 200 Launer London handbags. Her favourites are the black leather Royale, the black patent Traviata and the third being a custom handbag. She also has a maid who wears the shoes before she actually wears them! This way, she ensures she doesn't get a shoe bite!
The stylish royal always accessorises with her three-strand pearl necklace, which is officially part of her uniform. She has three similar looking pearl necklaces that she interchanges. The Queen is also almost always seen wearing her brooches.
Meanwhile, in another look into the monarch's life, the Queen's former chef Darren McGrady said in his book, "Eating Royally" that Queen Elizabeth has a huge sweet tooth. She loves chocolate biscuit cake and would take a slice of it with her during her travels.
