16 Times the Royal Family Paid Tribute to Queen Elizabeth II Through Fashion

Royal Fashion Tributes to Queen Elizabeth

Following her passing at the age of 96, Queen Elizabeth II continues to be honoured and remembered with tributes around the world. Throughout her reign, she used fashion as a means to recognise other members of the royal family, and now that same family is paying homage to her legacy. It's long been a tradition to pass down heirlooms, such as jewellery, brooches, and tiaras, in honour of past family members, but royals also pay tribute by recreating outfits from time to time as well.

In June 2022, for example, the queen was celebrated at the Platinum Jubilee with the annual Trooping the Colour parade, where Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, wore varying shades of blue as an ode to Elizabeth's favourite colour.

They'll also pay tribute via headpieces. The tiaras Middleton and Meghan Markle wore on their respective wedding days also marked the lineage of the crown — both having been loaned by the queen as temporary gifts to finish off their Alexander McQueen and Givenchy wedding gowns, respectively.

From the pearls Markle wore during her first solo engagement without Prince Harry in 2018 to the four-strand choker donned by Princess Diana and Kate Middleton on very special occasions, read on to see all the royal family's major sartorial tributes to Queen Elizabeth II.
