Kate Middleton, 39, cut an elegant figure in the £1,125 fuschia midi dress from Alexander McQueen, when she visited a Cornish school with the First Lady, 70, who was wearing a £440 bright pink L’Agence Fashion blazer.
That same day the new Mrs Johnson, 33, wore a £1,395 vibrant pink Roksanda dress, which she borrowed from a rental website for a discounted rate.
Two days later, the Queen wore a pink floral dress and matching hat as she welcomed the Bidens to Windsor Castle.

‘These inspirational ladies are leading the way in the hottest fashion colour of the season,’ she said.
‘All sporting varying shades of pink, their message suggests they are forging ahead in a new way with enthusiasm and vigour, whilst being supportive and thoughtful in their actions.
‘Strong pink is assertive and empowering whilst highlighting feminine qualities of compassion and kindness with a playful side.’
Jules explained a tendency to gravitate towards pink can reflect a ‘naturally nurturing and supportive’ personality.
She continued: ‘Pink is loving and can also be empowering and invigorating, highlighting someone who is both compassionate yet confident, enjoying life and having fun with others.
‘Equally by wearing pink, it can help you get in touch with this side of your personality. Mindfully choose some pink to help you in your everyday life, for feeling romantic on a date or sharing some unconditional love if working in a caring profession.’
Bright and beautiful: Carrie Symonds, 33, wore a £1,395 vibrant pink Roksanda dress, which she borrowed from a rental website for a discounted rate. Colour expert Jules Standish analysed the meaning behind the colour pink and said it signals ‘compassion’ and ‘kindness’
Jules noted that there is a different in the vibrant shades chosen by Kate, Jill and Carrie, and the softer shade worn by the Queen.
‘Whilst all pinks can represent an open heart and friendly nature, strong hot pink might also portray a vivacious, confident individual, who likes to have fun, whilst pale, pastel pink could suggest someone who has a generous personality, putting others first, but doesn’t like to draw lots of attention to themselves,’ she said.
The Queen put on an elegant display in her soft pink ensemble as she welcomed the Bidens to Windsor Castle.
She accessorised the outfit with the diamond Jardine Star Brooch, which is understood to have been given to her by a friend in the 1980s.
