The Obamas recently arrived in the U.K. to celebrate Queen Elizabeth‘s 90th birthday. While across the pond meeting with the royal family, Michelle Obama honored the passing of music royalty with a purple Oscar de la Renta dress and purple Narciso Rodriguez coat.

While Mrs. Obama is known for her colorful wardrobe, we definitely think the purple on purple ensemble was a subtle tribute to Prince.

President Obama released a statement on the untimely passing of the legend.

“Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent. As one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time, Prince did it all. Funk. R&B. Rock and roll. He was a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer,” said Obama.
