As I am sure many of you know, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had their daughter Princess Charlotte christened over the weekend. Today has seen the release of the official photographs, which I just happened upon as I was reading the online newspaper.
What made me laugh is the newspaper had some ‘etiquette expert’ analyse it, and he came to the conclusion that the Middletons (Catherine’s family),are very ‘middle class!’ This is due to them mostly choosing beige as the colour of their outfits, which is neutral and therefore not offensive to anybody! Likewise the walls of the room the photo was taken were also beige. As this was the Queen’s private residence in Norfolk, I bet she would also rank as middle-classed.
God knows how a colour can define your social standing, but I can only imagine how low in the pecking order I would be as I love colour! Especially as it is the summer time. Yellow is my favourite colour, but I love orange and red, gold and silver, lime green, mint green, anything that is bright and cheerful.
Think of all the beautiful flowers and their vibrant colours, I don’t know about you but looking at them really lifts my mood. I understand that loud, garish colours are not always appropriate, but neither is bland old beige!
