When royals colour co-ordinate! Matching looks from Prince Harry and Meghan, Prince William and Kate and more

These rainbow royals know how to make a statement…

Remember when the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall, Queen Letizia and Queen Maxima attended 2019's Order of the Garter ceremony in varying tones of blush and white? The result was some mighty gorgeous pictures, and proof that royals can really make a style statement when they co-ordinate their looks.

Was it done on purpose? We'll never really know, but that doesn't stop us looking back at all the times our favourite royal ladies (and gents) have come over all matchy-matchy for their public engagements.
