Royals leave nothing to chance, and that extends to their wardrobe. Everything is strategically picked out so it sends the right message or provides a certain opportunity to communicate non-verbally. It has always been this way, and here are some meanings behind the royal family wardrobe you may not know.
Queen Elizabeth & Her Purses
The most logical of questions one would ask is, “What’s a Queen to do with a purse?” After all, she has people carrying everything she might need. Well, it turns out, it’s a strategic move.
If, for example, the Queen is to move her purse from her left to her right arm during a conversation with someone, it’s a signal to her staff to cut off that conversation. If she puts her handbag on the table during an event, this means the Queen wants to end it within the next couple of minutes.
Baby Archie’s Royal Family Shawl
To no surprise, all royal babies get a royally-approved shawl, and Archie, the son of Meghan and Prince Harry, was no exception.
Queen Elizabeth’s Bright-Colored Wardrobe
You never would have guessed the reason Queen Elizabeth is often seen in neon, bright-colored outfits. Since most places she attends are packed with people, and there are just as many trying to catch a glimpse of her, she wears pinks, yellows, and other neons, so she stands out, and her subjects are able to see her. Sweet, isn’t it?
Princess Diana’s Revenge Dress
Many remember the day Charles went on television to admit his infidelity, – and more specifically, the dress Princess Diana wore on the same day. It would seem she wanted to “punish” him with her stunning looks.
Kate’s Blue Polka-Dot Dress
You can say, many of the hidden meanings have sweet messages, but this one is probably the sweetest. The blue polka-dot dress that Kate wore when she and Prince William introduced baby George to the public was very similar to the dress Princess Diana wore 30 years earlier when she first showed baby William to the world.
