Although it seems she still got something of a shoutout from other royal women. Green was the color of the day for many, and as it turns out, the hue has a sweet connection to the Princess of Wales. Not to mention what green symbolizes holds extra significance in the wake of <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/william-kate-dealing-tremendous-anxiety-nothing-cancer-diagnosis.html/”>Kate’s cancer diagnosis</a>. </p>

<h2 class=”wp-block-heading” id=”h-green-symbolizes-new-life-optimism-and-new-beginnings”>Green symbolizes ‘new life,’ optimism, and ‘new beginnings’</h2>

<p id=”par-5_42″>Anne, Camilla, and Ferguson’s shades of green on Easter have a special significance following Kate’s cancer diagnosis on March 22, 2024. (The 42-year-old is currently in the early stages of preventative chemotherapy after tests from a January 2024 abdominal surgery found cancer.) </p>

<p id=”par-6_31″>The color, according to <a href=”https://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/516557/why-royals-wore-green-easter-service-with-king-charles/” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”><em>Hello! Magazine</em></a>, is “traditionally associated with nature, spring, and new life.” Speaking to <a href=”https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/1883456/royal-style-green-king-charles-princess-kate-cancer” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”><em>Express</em></a>, personal stylist Francesca Cairns shared what else the hue has come to denote. </p>

<p id=”par-7_23″>“Green represents growth,” she said. “Symbolism that is especially apt during the Easter season, when themes of sacrifice, resurrection, and new beginnings abound.” </p>

<p id=”par-8_20″>Furthermore, green “represents optimism.” Not only that but “it evokes feelings of hopefulness” and is “associated with renewal and hope.” </p>

<p id=”par-9_24″>“I have noticed that the royals do match colors at certain events when they come together and want to make a statement,” Cairns added.</p>

<p id=”par-10_26″>The royal family’s 2024 Easter church service wasn’t the first time Camilla, Anne, Sophie, and other women have stepped out in a fashion show of support. </p>

<p id=”par-11_37″>Perhaps the most memorable display came in December 2022 at <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/kate-middletons-christmas-carol-concert-invitation-subtle-nod-queen-elizabeth.html/”>Kate’s Christmas carol concert</a>. Royal women — as well as Kate and William’s daughter <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/princess-charlotte/”>Princess Charlotte</a> — arrived for the occasion in a festive shade of burgundy. </p>

<p id=”par-12_33″>The fashion statement made headlines at the time due to a comment made by <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/meghan-markle/”>Meghan Markle</a> in her and <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/prince-harry/”>Prince Harry</a>’s Netflix docuseries. (Part II premiered the same day as the carol concert.) </p>

<p id=”par-13_42″>In it, the Duchess of Sussex <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/meghan-markle-strategically-wore-three-muted-colors-prince-harry-not-trying-to-stand-out.html/”>recalled wearing predominantly neutral colors</a> as a working royal. Furthermore, that during her tenure, she’d been under the impression senior royals couldn’t wear the same color as the late Queen Elizabeth II to a “group event.” </p>

<p id=”par-14_20″>The parade of burgundy, therefore, was seen by some as a way <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/3-ways-royal-family-countered-meghan-markles-claims-without-saying-word.html/”>the royal family pushed back against Meghan’s claim</a>.</p>

<p id=”par-15_26″>Prior to that, royal women also showed their support by wearing green to a memorial service for Prince Philip because his favorite color was Edinburgh green. </p>
