On April 5, Queen Elizabeth II gave a rare address as she broke her silence on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. During her speech, which featured the monarch ensuring the public that "better days will return," she was seen wearing a bright emerald green dress. Following her appearance regarding COVID-19's spread, many began discussing the royal fashion choice as it is a look that is "rich in symbolism."

According to People, color expert Kate Smith shared that the specific color holds several meanings.

"Green is the color of healing, nature, balance, and good health, which is just what is needed right now," she said, adding, "Physically, the color green has a relaxing, calming effect on our bodies."

As a result of Her Majesty's national address, data aggregator Lyst revealed that searches for the colour green spiked 52% in three hours.

The Queen's royal message comes after she faced criticism due to the fact that she did not speak out sooner about the spread of the novel coronavirus.

This is not the first time that members of the British royal family have worn green during special occasions, which some called a "strategic choice." In 2019, both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle decided to incorporate the bright color on their royal tours. The Duchess of Cambridge wore it while visiting Pakistan with Prince William, while the former "Suits" actress was seen wearing it while visiting Africa with Prince Harry.

Aside from the discussion about the Queen's outfit during her recent appearance, she has also remained in the news quite a bit following Meghan and Harry's royal exit. Not only has it been said that her signals could have "triggered" Megxit, but it has also been reported that she gave her staff "daunting" tasks and has started working to "overhaul" Buckingham Palace.
