The Queen’s color-chart: Why blue is Her Majesty’s favourite colour. . . and why she doesn’t like beige
After 60 years on the throne the Queen’s outfits on her thousands of visits and tours have proved she is a bastion of good taste and style.
But many have wondered what Her Majesty’s favourite color is - until now. Vogue magazine has studied every outfit she has worn in the last 12 months and found that blue is called royal for a reason.
Her Majesty has worn blue on 29 per cent of all occasions in the last year - almost three times more than any other colour
Whether the shade be teal, cobalt or powder, 29 per cent of the coats, dresses, suits and hats worn by the Queen have been predominantly that color. Although not a color, Floral was next with 13 per cent, followed by green and cream - both adorned on 11 per cent of occasions.
Pink and purple - 10 per cent - red, yellow, orange - four per cent - and black - two per cent - were next.
But it appears that beige is her least favourite, wearing it on only one per cent of occasions, matched only by equally-shunned checked patterns.
‘The Queen loves clothes and is a real expert on fabrics,’ the Queen’s personal assistant Angela Kelly told the Telegraph.
‘I do think she values my opinion but she is the one who is in control. She always makes the final decision.’
