Hailed by Vogue as a bona fide style icon, the Queen is world-renowned for her timeless elegance as well as her zest for colour. Whether she's hosting a glittering banquet at the palace or conducting a walkabout in the rain, Her Majesty is the picture of royal style thanks to her right-hand woman Angela Kelly. Not only does the Queen's personal wardrobe adviser help select her outfits, she also designs many of them!
Angela, who started out as the Queen's personal assistant, says she has a "close" relationship with her boss. "We are two typical women," she told the Telegraph. "We discuss clothes, makeup, jewelry."
Every outfit the Queen wears is mapped out with military precision. Not only must it suit her, it must also suit the occasion - which is why you'll rarely, if ever, see Her Majesty wearing green at a tree-planting ceremony. The fabric must not crease easily (no linen suits!). Sleeves are usually three-quarter length, while gloves are cotton for daytime and nylon by night. As for her famously practical footwear, shoemaker David Hyatt told Hello!: "Her court shoes are leather, usually black, beige or navy with a two-and-a-quarter-inch heel and the option of another quarter-inch on the sole for use on grass or when it's wet."
Here, we've gathered the ultimate guide to the Queen's impeccable wardrobe with individual galleries dedicated to her hues and prints.
