Why Queen Camilla, Princess Anne and Sarah Ferguson were wearing green

This Sunday, several members of the British royal family reappeared on the occasion of the Easter Sunday service, including Charles III himself, who did not appear at a public event after his cancer diagnosis in mid-January. Without a doubt, the biggest attraction of the day has been this reappearance, but if something that has also caught attention is that Queen Camilla, Princess Anne and Sarah Ferguson were dressed in green. This choice is not in vain and hides a reason.

This event is one of the most important in the ecclesiastical calendar, which is why it usually brings together a large number of royal members. The service was held at St George's Chapel, located on the grounds of Windsor Castle. Some of the main members of the royal family wore shades of the traditional Easter green, something common on this day.

Among the standout looks were those of Queen Camilla, Princess Anne and Sarah Ferguson, who looked elegant dressed in green. In the case of the Queen, 76, she looked spectacular in a bright green dress, which she combined with a matching hat, as well as high black suede boots and a black handbag.

On the other hand, Princess Anne also opted for the traditional hue, symbolizing "new beginnings," wearing a herringbone coat with a matching feather-trimmed hat. Meanwhile, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, opted for a bolder tone of the spring color, wearing a boucle dress with black heels, which she accessorized with a pair of black gloves, a black floral headband and gold jewelry.

For their part, the biggest absence has been that of the Princes of Wales and their family. The couple did not attend the event, which took place just over a week after Kate Middleton published an emotional message in a video in which she revealed that she had begun preventive chemotherapy treatment. Precisely, Kate always tends to be a draw when it comes to outfits. In previous editions, she has respected the dress color code for this day.

Both she, Prince William and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are the big absences this Sunday. The family is resting and spending the Easter holidays together as they adjust to Kate's diagnosis, which was discovered after abdominal surgery she underwent earlier this year.
