‘Trustworthy’ Kate Middleton favours specific colour when stepping out with family
The royal couple, both 39, never disappoint when gracing red carpets as well as stepping out for casual strolls. However, while their wardrobes may be full with various colours, an expert has noticed the royal couple favour the colour blue when stepping out for royal engagements and dressing their three children – Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.
Karen Haller, Behavioural Colour Psychologist and author of The Little Book of Colour, revealed, despite the royal family stepping out in a vast array of colours, there is a special meaning to the repetitive blue coordinated looks.
“Wearing the same hue when the Cambridges are showing they are coming together as a family, representing themselves as a cohesive unit,” Ms Haller told MyLondon.
“When it comes to colour psychology darker blues communicates you are in a position of authority, trustworthy, reliable and can be depended on.
“You have a sense of duty and take that seriously with committed focus.
“There is also an adverse side to blue and that is you can come across as aloof and distant so they don’t want to inadvertently create the feeling that they are unapproachable.”
Most recently, Kate Middleton was seen wearing a blue blue blazer-style dress to a reception for members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative and the Winners and Finalists of Prince Willam’s environmental prize – the Earthshot Prize.
Meanwhile, William matched his wife in a deeper shade of blue and was pictured wearing a navy suit.
An expert described the blue gown as a “confident” choice as the Cambridges have been taking on more responsibilities following the Queen’s health scare.
Momtaz Begum-Hossain, a Modern colour theorist, told OK! magazine the colour was a deliberate choice.
