The queen, who died Thursday at the age of 96, was renowned for sending messages through her outfits. A roundabout way, often, to express himself on certain subjects which required his impartiality.
Colorful suits, extravagant hats, sumptuous jewelry… Queen Elizabeth, who died on Thursday at the age of 96, was renowned for her remarkable outfits. But did you know that some of them, through the choice of a color, an accessory or a detail, were a roundabout way for the sovereign to express herself? To express his opinion on certain subjects which required his impartiality, or to reinforce his remarks, even to reveal his feelings, but with modesty? Back in pictures on the looks of the queen which contain, a priori, a hidden message.
• The Brexit hat
Queen Elizabeth II held an opening speech in Parliament in June 2017. For the occasion, she is wearing a blue hat with flowers, the center of which is yellow. Colors and formatting reminiscent of the European flag. Many observers have assumed a nod to Brexit. Queen Elizabeth II is however subject to a constitutional duty of neutrality on political issues, her role being purely symbolic.
• For Trump, a recycled outfit
July 13, 2018, Windsor. The Queen meets Donald Trump and wears the same lavender blue suit that day as during her opening speech to Parliament quoted above. A rare fact, Elizabeth II only “recycling” her outfits very rarely. Has this ensemble become a protest outfit, and is the Queen using it to mark her disagreement with Trump’s policies? Is this blue coat a nod to the Democrats, whose color it is?
• A tiara against “evil”
The House of Garrard jewelery house has created a diamond and ruby tiara for the Queen, given to the sovereign by the people of Burma as a wedding gift. The jeweler indicated that this tiara was “intended to be a symbol of protection against disease and evil”. Ironic, therefore, that it was this jewel that the queen chose to wear for her meeting with Trump in June 2019.
• The green dress of hope against the pandemic
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Queen Elizabeth II addresses the nation during a rare television intervention. For the occasion, she wears an emerald green dress and a diamond and turquoise brooch. The shade of green symbolizes growth and renewal, as if to give hope to the population. His brooch is a family heirloom: a gift from Queen Mary upon her death in 1953. Historically, this brooch is said to represent protection and empowerment of leadership powers.
• Her brooch for Philip’s funeral
During the funeral of her husband Prince Philip, on April 17, 2021, the sovereign appears dressed in black, a brooch on her coat. The jewel is a “Richmond Brooch”, which belonged to Queen Mary, grandmother of Queen Elizabeth. This object, Elizabeth II wore it during her honeymoon with Prince Philip. A beautiful way to pay tribute to her late husband, with a room full of nostalgia.
