Why are Queen, Royal family members wearing green for Prince Phillip's memorial?
- The Queen was seen in a forest green gown at Westminster Abbey for a memorial ceremony for Prince Philip
- Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Anne, and Princess Letizia of Spain were all seen wearing the same colour
- The official colour of the father-of-four was dark green
The Queen, along with other senior members of the Royal Family, wore green on Tuesday as a memorial to her late husband Prince Philip.
Her Majesty was seen in a forest green gown at Westminster Abbey for a memorial ceremony for Prince Philip, over a year after his death.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Anne, and Princess Letizia of Spain were all seen wearing the same colour.
While the costume selections may appear to be coincidental at first, they were most likely part of a well-planned tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh.
The official colour of the father-of-four was dark green.
It was known as 'Edinburgh Green,' and it was utilised for items like his staff liveries and private automobiles over the years.
Last April, the driving carriage that brought his hat and gloves to his burial was dark green.
The four-wheeled carriage, designed by Philip himself, was pulled into Windsor Castle by his rare Fell horses.
Today's event marks the Queen's first big formal engagement outside of one of her residences in six months.
Her Majesty has lately cancelled a number of engagements due to mobility issues and a fight with COVID.
She was believed to be 'determined' to make it today in order to honour the guy she had been married to for 73 years.
