For the special occasion, the Royal Family opted for blue ensembles. The Queen was seen wearing a light blue ensemble embellished with pearl and diamante trim. Notably, it is the same dress she wore in her newly released portrait for the Platinum Jubilee.

It is believed the Queen, who was seen wearing St. Patrick’s blue, gave a nod to Ireland’s original symbolic colour, which is also a representative of sovereignty.

Karen Haller, behavioural colour psychologist and author of The Little Book of Colour, had earlier told MyLondon, “When it comes to colour psychology, darker blues communicate you are in a position of authority, trustworthy, reliable and can be depended on. You have a sense of duty and take that seriously with committed focus.”

Noting the Cambridge Family‘s often colour-coordinated outfits, she had added, “Wearing the same hue, the Cambridges are showing they are coming together as a family, representing themselves as a cohesive unit.”

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, also wore a blue striped dress with a light blue hat and a layered pearl necklace.

While Kate Middleton opted for a white dress, her three children – George, Charlotte and Louis – colour coordinated in blue. Looking suave, George opted for a navy blue suit and Louis wore a white and blue sailor-inspired outfit that many believe was worn by his father Prince William when he was a child. Charlotte looked lovely in a blue chiffon dress.
