Many times the Princess of Wales is associated with cobalt or royal blue. She’s frequently pictured in dark forest green fashions for parades and even wears shades of scarlet from time to time. Yet, the color Kate uses to wow the crowds and win front cover status is not one you would initially expect.

Kate Middleton’s favorite shade for sending the paparazzi pen into overdrive and causing Fleet Street to pump out printed pages is the color teal. The greenish-blue hue combines the calming and serene properties of blue with the rejuvenating and renewing qualities of green. The cyan color has become Kate’s signature shade.

The rich and regal color is perfect for when the Wales matriarch wants to fuse the sophisticated shade of aqua with the timelessness of turquoise. Worn for special ceremonial occasions, red carpet events and military parades, Kate always steals the spotlight in shades of teal.
