Pantone Colour of the Year 2020: Royals wearing Classic Blue, from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle, Princess Diana & More


The Pantone Color of the Year 2020 has been announced, and it's Pantone 19-4502 Classic Blue! Classic Blue symbolises protection, stability, peace, and confidence, as well as encouraging deep thinking, open mindfulness, and communication. We think there's a regal look about the hue as well, which is why we've delved through the archives to find our favourite royals wearing a 'Classic Blue'. Keep scrolling to see Kate Middleton, Meghan Marke, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and a stunning retro photo of Princess Diana, who also stepped out in the shade.

For the first time ever, Pantone has debuted a unique multisensory approach that includes not just the sight of the Color of the Year, but also the taste, texture, scent and sound of the Colour of the Year - how very modern. To bring the colour of Classic Blue to life, Pantone partnered with Firmenich, AudioUX, LANDR, and The Inside to provide a multi-sensory experience that describes the Colour of the Year.

According to the findings, the sight of the Colour of the Year 2020 is in our psyches as a restful colour; Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit, offering refuge.
