Queen Elizabeth II is known for wearing bright colors during royal events and occasions. But, a royal biographer and author claims Her Majesty confessed she will never wear one particular color and gave a valid reason as to why she didn't want to wear it.

Queen Elizabeth's brightly-colored garments, power suits, and color-coded outfits all have flawless designs and tailored to perfection. Robert Hardman claims the monarch intentionally wears eye-catching colors to standout during royal events and occasions.

The royal biographer and author described Her Majesty as engagingly modest even though she's one of the famous women around the world. Hardman then revealed his favorite remark from the monarch, wherein Queen Elizabeth reportedly confessed she would never wear beige because nobody will know who she is.

Her Majesty wears neutral colors when she's off duty at Balmoral or Sandringham, but the monarch requires a smart dress code during royal ceremonies and other events. Queen Elizabeth reportedly does not hold back when choosing what color she will wear so that people will easily spot her on the crown.

Also, the monarch's outfits are tailored accordingly and take consideration which nation she'll be visiting. During a royal tour in Australia, for instance, Queen Elizabeth has worn a yellow gold outfit since it is reportedly one of the national colors of the country.e

Journalist and royal author Sali Hughes similarly claimed in her 2019 book Our Rainbow Queen that the Queen and her dressers take wardrobe itinerary in careful consideration before choosing an outfit. One of the monarch's designer said he kept a spreadsheet of Her Majesty's wardrobe once, where he detailed the date, time, and the specifics of the event to avoid wearing the same outfit more than once.

According to Hughes, the monarch will not attend an engagement at a grassy venue - like a garden party or racecourse - wearing camouflaging green. But, the Queen will happily wear green to places where it would stand out.

When Her Majesty celebrated her 90th birthday in 2016, she wore a green outfit. At that time, the monarch sported a striking shade of lime, while members of the royal family wore neutral colors - which is reportedly a mark of respect.

Moreover, when she traveled with her granddaughter-in-law Meghan Markle last year, Queen Elizabeth sported the vivid lime green look. This occasion is also said remarkable since it was the first royal trip of the monarch and the Duchess of Sussex together following Prince Harry and Markle's royal wedding.
