When it comes to the royal family, blue is a pretty important color, right? It's not called royal blue for no reason, and even though it's said that purple is the color of royalty, we're going to go ahead and say that it's blue all the way. Because of this, it seems that the lovely duchess Meghan Markle has incorporated a whole lot of blue into her royal wardrobe. Whether she did this on purpose or not, we don't know for sure, but the Duchess of Sussex has been wearing a lot of blue ensembles for it to not be on purpose. Plus, we're pretty sure Meghan wanted to do whatever she could to get in good with her royal in-laws.

While the Duchess of Sussex was pregnant, some speculated that she was wearing blue to hint at the sex of her baby. We could see this being potentially true, because it would be a pretty sneaky way for the Sussexes to give clues about little Archie since they were otherwise tight-lipped about all of the details.

No matter the reason for Meghan's blue-heavy wardrobe, she's certainly adopted it as one of her official go-to colors. That, along with forbidden businesswear. We have to remember that Meghan has only been an official member of the royal family for just over a year, so if she's been sporting a lot of blue, it's pretty easy to notice. We're all about finding trends in royal fashion, and we think we should definitely start paying attention to the duchess's color choices. Not convinced? Here are 18 times the Duchess of Sussex completely stopped the show in blue.

  • Classic Navy
