Actually, Kate Middleton is the classic type. But now the princess reaches for Barbie's favorite tone several times. What's behind the royals' candy color trend?
London – A radiant Kate Middleton (41) recently visited the Kinship Carers at the Saint Pancras Community Association in London in a pink two-piece trouser suit. Stylists say that the "encouraging" color represents "kindness." Apparently, it's not just Kate who takes advantage of this. Letizia of Spain (50) and Máxima of the Netherlands (52) also benefited. They appeared in pink on the same day. Have the royals colluded?
Princess Kate takes the fashion trend in hot pink and soft pink to the extreme for a week
At the Chelsea Flower Show, the Princess of Wales had already thrown the photographers off their feet in her recycled pink dress from ME+EM. Why snap flowers, even if a nice royal splash of color was to be had. There's no doubt about it: pink is on the rise, because the nuances from pastel to gaudy are conquering the catwalks of the coming season – the message apparently also met with open ears from other noble ladies.
On the same day, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands was also photographed wearing a pink Natan Couture outfit during a working visit to NXP Semiconductors in Nijmegen. The Spanish Queen Letizia showed up in a soft pink blouse and white culottes from Boss at the confirmation of her younger daughter Infanta Sofía of Spain (16) in Aravaca. For her part, the princess also went for the trendy color and wore a jumpsuit in fuchsia by Cayro Woman.
Kate knows that all eyes are on her and that she is considered a fashion icon and trendsetter

Speaking to Dailymail, Sibel Servcan, fashion trend expert and founder of Belissh, reveals why the tone is so hot right now: "The recent explosion of pink as a popular colour for outfits and accessories is certainly fuelled by the excitement surrounding the upcoming Barbie movie (coming out in July) [starring Australian Margot Robbie, 32, as Barbie and Ryan Gosling, 42, as Ken]." , she knows. In addition, color was also a central theme at fashion week in Valentino's Fall/Winter 2023 collection, which had a significant impact on this season's looks, the connoisseur explains.

However, according to Sibel, the royals may have opted for the shade for other reasons: "For Generation Z, pink now symbolizes the new desire to express femininity boldly and without restrictions or stereotypes". Stylist Rochelle White agrees, agreeing with Sibel at Femail: "The colour pink is empowering, pretty, flattering and strong". She adds, "I feel like there's been a change in the royal family, and [as] Kate's duties and appearances have increased, she's probably more comfortable with herself, her role, and the outfits she wears." Kate is apparently no longer frustrated that she's often all about fashion. Sources used: dailymail.co.uk
