Regal in red: Why the royals couldn't get enough of this colour in 2021

Forget pretty in pink, these fashionistas are ravishing in rouge.

By Faye Couros
The colour red has many romantic meanings and commonly signifies passion and love. However, its influence over history has manifested in many different shades.
For monarchs, it has implied power, regality, superiority, and a pre-coronated portrait of Princess Elizabeth I was painted in the hue before she was crowned queen to depict her moral and political strength.
However, after the monarchy fell, revolutionaries used the colour as a message of freedom.
Time has never squandered the shade's impact as it still has a daring reputation, and it's made even more special because not everyone can pull it off. It certainly requires a sense of ease and confidence to carry it well, especially when donning red from head to toe.
Luckily, our favourite royal women like Duchess Catherine, Duchess Meghan, and Queen Letizia possess the compulsory qualities needed to wear red.
From statement coats, pants, monochromatic styling, and gowns, these distinguished women held an undying flame for the hue throughout 2021.
For royal watchers, it's a thrill when a fashion moment is elevated by a startling bright colour, as it's a welcome break from the subdued beiges, whites, and navy adored by monarchs.
As the year prepares to give its final vow, let's revel in this aptly merry colour that royals couldn't get enough of in the gallery below.
