Now that she has died at the age of 96, people around the world are paying tribute to Queen Elizabeth II and her legacy as a memorable cultural icon. Throughout her reign, she especially used fashion as a way to identify other members of the royal family. Over the years, passing down heirlooms like jewelry, brooches, and tiaras has been a tradition. This, of course, is just one significant way in which you honor the King.
Most recently, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee was celebrated with the annual Trooping the Color Parade, where Kate Middleton, Prince William and their children George, Charlotte and Louis wore different shades of blue for Elizabeth’s favorite color.
Of course, the tiaras Middleton and Markle wore on their respective wedding days also carried great history and marked the lineage of the crown – both were borrowed by the Queen as temporary gifts to finish off their Alexander McQueen and Givenchy wedding gowns. Princess Diana, too, had some notable fashion moments in Queen Elizabeth II’s wardrobe. So here we have compiled a list of 10 memorable sartorial connections among the most talked-about British wardrobes.
From Markle’s first solo engagement without Prince Harry in 2018 (which allowed for a heartwarming matching moment between her and the Queen) to the 4-strand choker worn by the Princess of Wales and Duchess of Cambridge on very special occasions, the Royal Family is a nod to Queen Elizabeth II’s style. Read on to see when they chose their outfit – or the details of their outfit.
