In case you missed it, the Queen enjoyed a whole two days of 90th birthday celebrations at the weekend.
A special Trooping the Colour parade was held in London on Saturday to mark Her Majesty’s 90th birthday, which happened back in April. And as ever, the Queen made sure she picked an outfit appropriate for standing out in the crowd.
Her Majesty turned out in a bold neon green outfit by Stewart Parvin to celebrate the impressive fact that she’s Britiain’s longest reigning monarch.
Now, the Queen’s known for her love of a striking colour block look, but this time, her choice of hue managed to trigger a major Twitter explosion, with many taking to social media to join in with the #neonat90 hashtag.
Many likened the colour to the green used by Apple for the text message icon (LOL), whilst others went all out with their comparisons to a green screen.
We’ll show you what we mean:
Others, however, had nothing but admiration and appreciation for Queenie’s in-your-face outfit, and praised the monarch for setting a new trend.
‘New colour of the season – Queen Green! What a woman’, one wrote.
‘I desperately want running gear in Queen Green! #TroopingtheColour’, said another.
The Queen would have known exactly what she was doing when she plumped for her Kermit-esque colour choice – she famously explained that she purposely picks bright colours for public events, because: ‘I have to be seen to be believed.’
And she continued to dress by this mantra on Sunday, by turning out for the 10,000 strong picnic at The Mall wearing a bright pink combo, complete with matching hat and pearls.
And her speech was definitely on the cheeky side, with HRH telling the crowd: ‘I much appreciate the kindness of all your birthday wishes, and have been delighted and moved by the many cards and messages I have received.’
‘How I will feel if people are still singing Happy Birthday to me in December, remains to be seen!’
LOL. Oh, she’s a witty one.
