So it seems to me that the painters of the wonderful paintings here adjusted the colours when portraying the coronation robes of Queen Alexandra and Queen Mary.
Further, I don't think Queen Alexandra wore a crimson Parliament robe to the Abbey.
It is difficult to prove that, I admit. Here is her Parliament robe with a full cape, and her departure for the Abbey.
Perhaps those two "lapels" folded back.
