If you have paid attention to the color of the outfits Meghan Markle wears, you probably have noticed that she wears a lot of blue. People are speculating that she is sending a message that her first baby with Prince Harry will be a boy. However, color experts give other reasons why she wears a lot of blue ensembles. Besides, she was in the habit of wearing navy long before she became pregnant.

Eight Dark Blue Outfits on Royal Tour

The Duchess of Sussex wore over 40 outfits when she and the Duke of Sussex were on their 16-day royal tour to Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand last month. Throughout the tour, Meghan wore eight different navy blue ensembles. On the couple's final day in New Zealand, she wore two dark blue outfits.

Why was that a deliberate choice? Experts gave their reasons why the duchess wore so many navy outfits.

Color experts say wearing blue was the 37-year-old royal's way of looking professional while still appearing approachable. They said Meghan's choice was deliberate, and it subconsciously helped her to stay focused when she greeted hundreds of people and gave several speeches on the royal tour.

We learn from the experts that blue relates to the mind, and darker blue relates to trust, logic, and concentration. This was the Duchess of Sussex's first official royal tour and she wanted to be at her best.

Before the 16-day tour, Meghan has been seen numerous times in blue. That color has always been an approved hue for the British. Blue has often been worn by officers in the British Royal Navy since 1748.

Fabulous Outfits

We must agree that the expectant mother looks fashionable in any color. We must also agree that she has been seen in navy a lot especially since she married Prince Harry and became a royal.

Even though Meghan was seen in many fabulous outfits of different colors, prints, and patterns, she wore navy blue a lot. It became quite noticeable on the final day in New Zealand when she wore two different navy outfits.

She wore a $1,980 dress by Stella McCartney and a pleated skirt ensemble by Givenchy that is estimated to have cost $2,867. She looked terrific in both of them.

Not all the ensembles were the same shade of blue. While attending a state dinner in Fiji, the expectant mother wore a brighter blue dress that showed off her growing belly.

The Color Blue

If blue is a color you often wear, then you are in good company with the Duchess of Sussex. Blue is not only a favorable color for Meghan but also for lots of other people. They wear that particular color on special occasions for the same reasons experts say the Duchess of Sussex does.

For instance, some people feel comfortable wearing navy blue on interviews or to business meetings. It is a professional color that shows that the wearer is approachable.

According to color experts, blue is the color of trust, honesty, loyalty, and responsibility. Color psychology shows that the person wearing it is confident and secure. It reduces stress and promotes calmness.

Queen Elizabeth Wears Bright Colors

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, also wears a lot of blue probably for the same reasons Meghan does. Queen Elizabeth is not seen in public in dark blue for a special reason.

The Queen wants to be spotted in a crowd. She wears bright colors including her hats. She would not stand out in a crowd if she wore navy. She would blend in so much that a lot of people would not see her.
