If you were a Briton who’d voted to remain in the EU, Tuesday’s Queen Speech would have made for difficult viewing.
Brexit dominated the address, as the monarch spoke about the importance of making a success of the country’s exit.
It spoke about transferring EU law into British legislation, bringing a sense of finality for those hoping the referendum decision can be reversed.
So it is perhaps against this desperate backdrop that Twitter users have been pointing out the Queen’s attire.
Her outfit’s similarity to the EU flag had people suggesting that she was having a subtle dig at the whole idea of Brexit.
