The Queen looked totally ready for spring as she stepped out on Tuesday morning – visiting the Royal Academy of Arts to open the new Burlington Wing. The special occasion marked the completion of a major redevelopment of the site in the Academy's 250th anniversary year. Her majesty has always been the Queen of style and wowed fashion fans everywhere with her choice of attire – a bright orange dress coat with matching hat. Her look is very fitting – 20 March marks the official first day of spring and it appeared that the monarch made a reference to the new season with her bright and colourful outfit.

The Queen has certainly been making waves in the fashion world during 2018 – she graced the 'FROW' during London Fashion Week at Richard Quinn's SS18 show and even sat next to US Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The 91-year-old monarch made her debut appearance at the event where she presented Richard with the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
