Kate, Princess of Wales was the first to step out in an all-red outfit this week, then Queen Consort Camilla chose a red dress the day after. According to a royal expert, there is a good reason why the two senior female royals chose such a bold colour to wear, less than 24 hours apart.
On Monday evening in London, Kate Middleton chose a red suit; it comprised of an asymmetric Alexander McQueen blazer, wide-leg suit trousers and a small v-neck slip cami underneath.
She accessorised her outfit with her Mui Mui bow bag in red suede, her trust Gianvito Rossi Gianvito 105 pumps in red sued and a pair of Chalk Florence earrings in regency.
Then on Tuesday morning, Camilla chose a striking red dress for her first official engagement with the British Army.

She told The Post how “royal fashion, in general, is very intentional”, referencing how Queen Elizabeth II used bright colours as a way to make herself stand out.
In colour psychology, the colour red “is often used to send messages of confidence to the public”.
The intensity of red, compared to more soothing tones of green or blue, has “more psychological and emotional connections than any other colour in the spectrum”.
“Red is associated with passion, love, power, confidence, and anger,” Forbes explained.

Meghan said she didn’t want to “stand out” with her outfit or colour choices, so chose tones that would let her “blend in”, hence why the public always saw her wearing beige, camel and pale pink.
It seems Kate and Camilla don’t have the same “understanding” as Meghan, since they both chose red outfits this week, and for the Together at Christmas carol service, Kate, alongside Princess Charlotte, Zara Tindall and Pippa Middleton, all chose burgandy coats.
