Kate Middleton being the fashion icon she is has rocked every color of the rainbow wonderfully. However recently Kate, as well as the rest of the Cambridge family have been going with blue when choosing their outfits. This began around the same time that the global pandemic started affecting the whole world and we entered a global health crisis.
We know that much like the Queen, Kate also puts a lot of thought in what she wears, so this choice of her and her family’s to wear blue during the global pandemic has been seen as a important tribute to all the frontline workers that are working tirelessly to combat the virus. Kate and Prince William, as well as their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, have been seen wearing blue on multiple occasions, be it for public appearances or royal engagements, throughout the lockdown and beyond.
Royal fans were quick to make the connection between the Cambridge’s decision to wear blue as a tribute to the NHS and other frontline workers in the UK as their uniforms are often times various shades of blue, the same shades that the family have been choosing for their outings and appearances.
Another meaning that the color might be is that the color is often associated with stability, peace, wisdom and serenity, something that we all sorely need in these troubling times.
In their first appearances since the virus outbreak, the family appeared all in sync with their clothing choices. The family-of-five made a surprise appearance on April 23 on the BBC Children In Need and Comic Relief’s Big Night In special to raise funds for the battle against the virus. The Cambridge family looked wonderful all in blue. Kate went with a floral printed dress from Ghost. William went simple yet elegant with a blue sweater and a plaid shirt.
The Cambridge children also looked wonderful, with Prince George wearing a blue plaid shirt, his brother Prince Louis going for a navy sweater with a lighter collared shirt, looking a lot like his father, while Princess Charlotte matched her mother with a blue floral dress.
The blue outfits didn’t stop there, as Kate and Prince William wore them on multiple other occasions as well. For their video call in which they paid tribute to the nurses across the Commonwealth the couple were again seen in blue. This time they were joined in this by Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, who also wore blue.
Be it at the NHS birthday celebration or getting her hands dirty with the Scout group, Kate once again went with gorgeous combinations of blue shirts and dresses.
Even for official royal engagements, like when she and her husband met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and First Lady Olena Zelenska at Buckingham Palace, the Duchess once again showed just how good blue looks on her, wearing an elegant blue dress matched with blue jewelry.
These are just a few examples of the Duchess sending a message with her outfits, as there is much more. Time and time again Kate has shown just how good of a royal she is; be it for official business or just talking and meeting with the regular folk, her choice of outfits never seems to disappoint.
