Queen Elizabeth never met a candy-colored coat option she didn't like. But for an appearance at today's Royal Maundy Service in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, she kicked things up a notch with a simple pivot: She wore marigold.
The distinction is subtle, mind you, but while her majesty typically prefers more of a banana yellow, her elegant (and color-coordinated) hat and coat skewed a bit more trendy this time. (Hello, did you see the hue of choice for influencers and fashionistas at spring fashion week in New York?)
It's proof the queen—who's ruled for close to 70 years at this point—still keeps her finger on the pulse of what's modern. (Brava.)
As for today's ceremony, it's actually one that's steeped in tradition. Per the royal family's Instagram: “Royal Maundy is one of the most ancient ceremonies retained in the Church of England.” It also consistently takes place on the Thursday before Easter.
Queen Elizabeth attended with her granddaughter Princess Eugenie, who was also dressed to impress.
A festive occasion? For sure. One that calls for a bright and trendy pop of color? Heck, yes.
