• Queen Elizabeth wore a special shade of green that was a subtle nod to Prince Philip for his memorial service Tuesday
  • The dark green shade evoked Prince Philip's official livery color of "Edinburgh Green," a report says
  • Princess Anne, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and several other attendees also sported emerald outfits

Queen Elizabeth II paid tribute to her late husband Prince Philip through her ensemble at his memorial service earlier this week.

On Tuesday, the 95-year-old monarch wore a coatdress and hat in a special shade of green that was a subtle nod to her husband of 73 years when she attended the Service of Thanksgiving held at Westminster Abbey to honor the life of the Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April 2021 at the age of 99, People reported.

The Queen wasn't the only member of the royal family who wore the color as Princess Anne, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and several other attendees also sported emerald outfits.

The dark green shade evoked Prince Philip's official livery color of "Edinburgh Green," according to the outlet. The color has been used for staff uniforms and private cars. During his funeral last year, Prince Philip's coffin was carried by a Land Rover painted the same color.

In addition to giving her late husband a subtle nod through her style, Queen Elizabeth also wore a yellow gold, ruby and diamond "Scarab brooch," which was a personal gift given to her by Prince Philip in 1966.

The Queen was joined by several members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Princess Anne, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and more.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also brought their oldest children, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6, to the service to honor their great-grandfather. Their youngest, Prince Louis, 3, was not in attendance.

For the service, Duchess Kate wore a black belted polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich and a wide-brimmed hat by Awon Golding for Lock & Co. Her daughter, meanwhile, looked adorable in a navy wool coat by Amaia.

In addition to the royals' ensembles, the memorial service also featured several other poignant tributes to the late royal, including musical selections chosen by the prince himself and floral arrangements inspired by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's wedding day.

The Queen was escorted by her son Prince Andrew to the Tuesday service, sparking backlash on social media. The outing marked the Duke of York's first public event since he settled his sexual assault lawsuit with his accuser Virginia Giuffre.

"It shows she wholeheartedly loves and believes her son," royal commentator Robert Jobson said of the Queen. "As she did when she made a statement about Camilla being Queen's Consort, many people will now accept the Queen's word and judgment."

The "Prince Philip's Century" author also claimed that there had been a disquiet among the senior members of the royal family regarding Prince Andrew being the Queen's escort, "but she insisted."

"It does make some sense that he accompany her because he doesn't have a partner. A settlement has been paid but he's guilty of nothing in the eyes of the law," Jobson added. "She has faith in Andrew. Even if he disappears from public life, he's been able to pay tribute to his father, who after all, was very proud of his service in the Royal Navy, where he fought in the Falkland Islands conflict."
