While Kate Middleton might be the royal we think of when it comes to regal style, Queen Elizabeth II has quite the wardrobe herself. 

From wearing her classic white gloves to the only nail polish shade you’ll ever see the monarch sporting, the 91 year old follows some very stern fashion and beauty rules. 

But finer details aside, there’s one major fashion secret the Queen nearly always follows. 

Have you ever noticed how she sports bold, block colours?

She often wears one bright colour, from pinks and purples to greens and blues, from head to toe.

On the other hand, pale or printed garments are rarely seen on the royal. 

This conscious choice is said to ensure to royal is the main attraction at every occasion. You can’t miss the Queenie in the number above, can you?

In a 2016 documentary The Queen at 90, this topic was touched upon.

Countess Sophie of Wessex opened up on the vivd wardrobe of Prince Charles’s mother. 

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. 

“She needs to stand out for people to be able to say ‘I saw the Queen’.” 

And of course that’s not the only notable thing about her dress sense.

Have you ever noticed that Queen Elizabeth II is nearly always wearing a pair of gloves? She’s either rocking Michael Jackon-esque white gloves or a dark leather pair, depending on the rest of her attire.

The longest serving British monarch is required to wear them for practical reasons, as she’s expected to shake so many people’s hands at events.
