Long Live The Cream! Beige Is The Royal Colour Loved By Kate Middleton, The Queen & More

24 October 2013 by

So you might have heard that yesterday a little thing called the royal christening happened. Little Georgie set the theme for the day, as many of the senior royals stuck within the oyster colour palette, matching the prince's cream lace gown. Back in the days of jousting and eight course banquets purple was the colour of royalty, but now it's all about the cream.

Kate Middleton wore a cream pillbox hat by Jane Taylor and a matching dress featuring elegant ruffles by Alexander McQueen. As she carried George in her arms out of the service, we could see it was a perfect colour match with his christening gown. George wore a replica of the Honiton lace dress first worn by Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841, which was worn by senior royals including the Queen, Charles, William and Harry.

Alexander McQueen is Kate's go-to label for big royal events, such as her wedding and the diamond jubilee. But cream is also her not so secret style weapon. From those L.K. Bennett nude pumps to her elegant Jenny Packham coats, you'll find plenty of creamy delights in K Mids' wardrobe. Kate Middleton wore a cream Reiss ruffled dress in those Mario Testino engagement photos and nude lace Alexander McQueen dress to the service at St. Paul’s Cathedral for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Pippa Middleton also went matchy matchy with the christening gown in a cream wool trapeze coat with blush pink trim and oyster silk lining worn over a blush lace dress, by London boutique Suzannah. Camilla also opted for all cream everything, with an oyster hat, dress, bag and shoes.

Kate isn't the only royal with a beige wardrobe, as we've trawled through the royal archives to pick out the best creamy ensembles from the Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Diana and more. After some extensive picture research we can confirm that cream really IS the royal hue.
