Queen Rania posed for a series of photos alongside her husband, France’s President Emmanuel Macron and first lady Brigitte Macron. Brigitte opted for a similar color motif she previously wore on June 6 for the D-Day anniversary commemoration in Normandy. France’s first lady seemingly coordinated her outfit alongside Queen Camilla, who also fashioned a monochrome white look for the sobering occasion.

Brigitte chose all-white dressing for Monday’s visit from the royals, fashioning a double-breasted blazer with ornate lapels and collar. She also wore a crisp white coordinated skirt with a hemline just above the knee and wore white pumps that complemented her ensemble.

Like many royals, Queen Rania utilizes her fashion to make subtle sartorial statements evocative of the occasion she attends. The royal’s style has always matched classic silhouettes with contemporary twists, favoring designers who merge the two qualities. While her style has evolved over the years, her sensibility and approach to fashion largely remains the same.
