However, because it was loaned to Meghan by the Queen, the Duchess of Sussex did not get to keep the diadem.She left the tiara to Queen Elizabeth II in her will when Mary died in 1953.

The Queen has attended the royal weddings of all her children and grandchildren. But she has only worn blue a handful of times on these occasions. These include Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding in 1981 and Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew's nuptials in 1986.

The Queen also wore blue to her sister Princess Margaret's wedding in 1960, as well as the first wedding of Princess Anne in 1973.

However, all of these weddings sadly ended in divorce.

Therefore, is the Queen wearing blue to a wedding a sign of bad luck?

The Queen is the only person who can acceptably overshadow the bride, and her wedding attire always sets trends.
