The Queen has jokingly claimed there is a certain colour she can never wear as people would no longer know "who she is".

Her Majesty is well known for sporting colourful hats, with matching coat dresses, a necklace of pearls and gloves.

But journalist Robert Hardman has recollected the day the royal joked about the one colour she will never wear as it doesn't allow her to stand out like her usual attire, OK! reports.

"My favourite remark she ever said was, 'I can ever wear beige because nobody will know who I am,'" Robert recalled in his biography of the Queen.

The journalist's remarks were backed up by her daughter-in-law Sophie Wessex in the hit 2016 documentary, Our Queen at Ninety.

Sophie previously explained: "Don't forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, ten, 15 deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen's hat as she went past.

"She needs to stand out for people to be able to say 'I saw the Queen'."

The usual attire of brightly coloured coordinating suit and statement headwear has become the 95-year-old Monarch's signature style.

And the Queen continues to mix up her look by sporting new colours of the rainbow.

According to Brian Hoey's book, Not In Front of the Corgis, the Queen hands her outfits to her dresses when she grows tired of it, who are then allowed to sell it or wear it themselves.

But he adds: "If her dresser wishes to sell an item, she is not allowed to disclose any information about its former owner.

"All labels and any other evidence that might point to The Queen have to be removed so that no one can trace its origin."
