Daena Borrowman, a marketing manager at jewellerybox told Express.co.uk: “Royal women are not permitted to wear bright or dark nail paint on their fingernails. Only nude shades, sheer whites and light pinks are allowed.”
Also, she added “fake nails or colour nail polish is deemed vulgar by the Royal Family”. Sarah Gibson Tuttle, founder and CEO of Olive & June, commented: “The Royal Family tends to favour sheer, neutral shades on shorter, squoval-shaped nails.
“It’s a super-classic, clean look. It looks timeless and royal-appropriate. While we’ve all heard rumours of rules, I know royal nails are always pretty, polished, and perfectly manicured.”
Royal fans, however, loved Princess Sofia’s look and praised her stylish and fun outfit on social media with @unc94gal saying: “Sofia rocked it!”
