In the third episode of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s docuseries, Meghan said she purposely opted not to wear bright colours during her time in the Firm, explaining her usual colour palette was “camel, beige and white”.
She said this was a deliberate choice to avoid clashing with the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Meghan said: “There was thought in that, to my understanding, you can’t ever wear the same colour as Her Majesty if there’s a group event. I wore a lot of muted tones but it also was so I could just blend in. Like I’m not trying to stand out here.”
But just a week after the episode dropped on the streaming platform, Kate hosted her annual Christmas Carol concert at Westminster Abbey which was attended by numerous members of the Royal Family.
For the event, she opted for a burgundy coat from Eponine in London, which was paired with a matching clutch bag and shoes.
And other royals also wore the bright colour, including Zara Tindall, who is the daughter of Princess Anne and the niece of King Charles, as well as Kate’s daughter Princess Charlotte.
Meanwhile, Prince William sported a burgundy tie, as did Mike Tindall for the occasion.
Kate is expected to host the annual Christmas carol service again this year, where midwives and nursery teachers will be amongst the guests in celebration of those supporting young children and families.
