The Queen Mathilde finished her look with a pair of green heels and matching clutch. She wore her blonde locks pinned up under a chic green hat.
In contrast, King Philippe who is a distant relation of Queen Elizabeth II chose to wear a military uniform. The royal performed the duties of the Reviewing Officer at the Founder’s Day Ceremony.
The Royal Hospital Chelsea’s Founders Day, is also known as Oak Apple Day, in a nod to the escape of King Charles II after the Battle of Worcester – when he hid in an oak tree to avoid capture by the Parliamentary forces.
All Chelsea Pensioners wear oak leaves on the famous scarlet uniforms.
It comes after King Philippe and his wife paid their respects to the late monarch at Westminster Hall last September.
