The colour Royal Blue

We've been doing quite a few handmade wedding invitations using the colour - royal blue recently.

It got me thinking did royal blue get its name?

According to Wikipedia  , royal blue is said to have been invented by some millers from Frome, Somerset. They entered a competition to design a dress for the British queen, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (the wife of King George III). 

Royal blue is traditionally described as deep to dark blue with purple or faint reddish tint.

All of our 12 collections can be produced in royal blue.  To see more visit
