The British royal family constantly faces either criticism or praise for their fashion choices by the public – with little in-between.

And there are so many fashion traditions to follow.

Specifically, Queen Elizabeth II always receives compliments for strategically wearing brightly colored neon ensembles, in various colours.

As for Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, the duo often stick to a more subdued or pastel colour palette, Harpers Bazaar and Glamour report.

Occasionally, they step out in bolder shades.

But there’s one specific color that neither Markle nor Middleton have ever worn in public – orange.

Both The Express and Harpers Bazaar Australia noticed this trend in the royal women’s wardrobes.

According to Marie Claire, there isn’t an unspoken royal fashion rule or tradition against wearing orange, and there are a few theories as to why the women don’t wear the colour.

The most plausible reason is that orange is notorious for looking awful in photographs, per The Express.

Another theory is that neither lady has found an orange-coloured outfit that they like.

It’s also potentially possible that Markle and Middleton avoid the colour for Queen Elizabeth II.

She isn’t afraid of the colour and has worn it out on a few occasions, including Christmas, Marie Claire reports.

Markle has stuck with neutral colours since marrying Prince Harry, and likely does so to avoid upstaging Queen Elizabeth, per Harpers Bazaar.
