Queen paid discreet tribute to Prince Philip at Platinum Jubilee celebrations

The Queen paid a touching tribute to her beloved late husband Prince Philip at the Platinum Jubilee pageant.

As she took in the spectacle, and waved to the masses, Her Majesty's choice of colour made it easy to spot her in the royal ensemble on the balcony.

That was because she was wearing green, which was the Duke of Edinburgh's favourite colour.

According to the royal family's website The Duke of Edinburgh's official livery colour is dark green, known as 'Edinburgh Green'.

It was used for his staff liveries – the duke's page at the coronation wore dark green and silver – and private cars.

Prince Philip died in April last year aged 99.

The monarch previously wore a bright neon green dress to Harry's and Meghan's wedding in 2018.

HRH, Camilla and the Princess Royal were all dressed in the 'Edinburgh Green' tone as they attended the memorial service at Westminster Abbey, as a subtle tribute to Philip.

As well as being the colour most commonly associated with rebirth and renewal and immortality, it is also seen as the colour of hope and is connected with the colour of springtime.

Princess Eugenie has described the Jubilee Pageant as "incredible".

She wrote on her Instagram: "The Platinum Jubilee Pageant was just incredible.

"To all the people that took part, organised it, made it flawless for us all watching, Thank you. You made us all so proud."

The Duchess of Cambridge opted for pink at the pageant, wearing a long-sleeved pink dress.
