What has the color orange ever done to Kate Middleton?

While Middleton has been known to wear head-to-toe colorful ensembles of many varieties and colors, there is one egregious exception. Spoiler, it's orange.

After Harper's Bazaar Australia took a deep dive into the royal photo archives, they noticed that during her 8 years as the Duchess of Cambridge, Middleton has worn everything from electric blues to magenta pinks — but she's never worn orange.

No orange peacoats for her. Not even pumpkin or apricot-colored.

The closest she's come to wearing outright orange have been blood red-oranges (that are distinctly more red than anything else, let's be honest), and that one time in 2013 whe she wore peach for a brief, fleeting moment before never letting it touch her clothes again.

Clearly as far as Middleton is concerned, orange is not the new black. But hey, at least we know one royal who won't shy away from giving it some love ...
