Pantone Queen

It was a balmy Wednesday when Will Thacker and Blake Waters were enjoying their afternoon tea in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, at another Royal Garden Party.

Doubling up on the finest cucumber sandwiches, they found it hard not to notice another splendid block colour outfit worn by Her Maj'.

After much debating and a couple more Earl Greys, the pair decided to celebrate her success at wearing one colour so gracefully.

Introducing Pantone Queen, 60 Years of Matching Colours.

Queen Elizabeth II is an icon of style. For 60 years she has colour matched her clothing perfectly. As any Queen should.

And to celebrate the 2012 Diamond Jubilee, Leo Burnett and Pantone have created a colour guide book detailing some of those famous single colour outfits, with their matching Pantone reference and the date she wore them.
