As far as royal news goes, it’s been a week. *Cough, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, cough.* But as anyone who follows royal enthusiast Elizabeth Holmes on Instagram can attest, there’s never NOT significance to the items the royal family chooses to wear. Per Holmes: “Color is the most important thing in a royal woman’s wardrobe—it’s the most obvious thing about their clothing. So they choose it very carefully!” Case in point: the camel hue, worn in coat-form, not just by Meghan this week, but by the queen and Kate Middleton, too.
Sure, Meghan donned one when she stepped out at Canada House, her first—and possibly last, at least for a while—2020 appearance in the U.K. But, immediately after, both Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth followed suit. Kate? She wore a camel coat during school drop-off for Prince George and Princess Char. The queen (who almost always wears candy colors) chose camel for a church visit in Sandringham.
A show of solidarity? Maybe. But since camel is also the best-ever winter neutral, here’s where to get the (royal) look.
