Queen's leggings?

Just watched "The Queen at Ninety" online....very well done!
I am curious: what sort of leggings or trousers is Her Majesty wearing when she rides astride?

Probably jodhpurs, horse riding leggings.

Katherine Jenkins on the special gift she's giving the Queen for her 90th birthday | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The multi-platinum-selling singer talks with infectious warmth about the Queen, excitedly relaying the revealing details she has observed in her many meetings with the monarch.

‘She’s a mother to the nation,’ the 35-year-old declares. ‘And she’s a mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother. It makes me just love her when I think back to all the little jokes and quirky things we’ve shared.

‘I went for lunch at Buckingham Palace and after pudding they put a plate next to you with a piece of gauze, and there was a large finger bowl on the table.’

Post-prandial Palace protocol dictates that one washes the fruit in the receptacle provided, dries it with the gauze, then slices it on the plate.

Fortunately, the ‘working-class girl from Neath’ hoots, she didn’t grab the finger bowl and drink it.

‘Can you imagine if I’d picked that up?’ she chuckles. ‘I was sitting there thinking, “God, I don’t know what to do. Somebody else go first because I have no idea what’s meant to happen.” So I took a nectarine and I held it in my hand.

'Then the Queen caught my eye and showed me what to do, without a word, so I could just follow her lead. I was really grateful because by doing that she made me feel at ease. It was so kind and clever.’

I'm trying to find the tweets I saw, but on Easter Monday Anne Leibovitz took pictures of The Queen and Charlotte and George. The tweets stated that The Duchess of Cambridge took some snaps as well.

Kate Middleton took personal photos of the Queen, George and Charlotte

I wonder if Savannah, Mia and Isla were also at Windsor too. Do individual family shots with the Queen and then one with all 5.

In the video, when she is on horseback, the Queen is wearing some sort of leggings or trousers that are baggy and rolled up at the ankles, not fitted like jodphers. Her coat is knee-length so we can't see the shape. I just thought it looked odd.

Savannah & Isla were probably there as their parents attended church on Easter and tomorrow is Isla's 4th birthday so they probably had a birthday party for Isla.

Maybe that is why Princess Anne rushed home after church.

I personally just wish for ANY kind of family photograph in the coming year. I mean, not to be macabre, but we don't know how many more chances there are for big family photos and the latest one I can remember was when Autumn was still a fiance. So much have changed and I would really love a picture of them all while both the Duke and Queen are still with us. If not for them as a family, for the history books.

When the Queen posed for official portraits with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the Duchess of Cambridge couldn't let the opportunity slip by to take some personal photos of her own. The Duchess took her children to Windsor Castle on Easter Monday, where they posed with Her Majesty for the royal's upcoming 90th birthday.

The official photographer at the shoot was Annie Leibovitz, whose famous subjects include Kate Moss, Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga and the Kardashian-Wests.

"Wills and Kate were with the children but as adoring parents rather than wanting to be in the pics themselves," a royal source told The Sun.

"Annie was taking the official pictures but Kate took her own snaps for the family album. It was really cute.

"The Queen loves her great-grandchildren and is very proud of them. The pictures will be a lovely way to mark a remarkable 90th birthday."
I look forward to seeing these pictures, but I don't know if I trust The Sun's sources.

I hope if there are photos all the great grandchildren are included, I understand George and Charlotte are more senior in the succession but it would be nice to see the Queen with all her great grandchildren.

It would be a miracle if we get a nice family picture. Lord knows, it's very hard to get family portraits out of the British royals. All their royal counterparts do so, but it's like pulling teeth to get the Windsors together for a picture.

I think this upcoming birthday celebration will be just about a perfect time to get such a picture. Its been in the works and planned and known about for so long, it made it quite easy for all the children and grandchildren and great grandchildren to have nothing on their calendars for a certain birthday celebration date so that they all can attend and be there.

I was reading earlier about Queen Victoria and how the death of her husband not only affected her but also her family and the nation. There was a quite nice photograph of the entire family together and that is something that will remain a part of history. It would be so good to have one of The Queen with all her family surrounding her for posterity.

Even if missing a member or two, they should do a portrait with whoever they can wrangle. Things like Easter and Christmas they manage to get most of the family together in the same place. I would really love one with all the great-grandkids. If they cant get all 5 at the same time then at least a series with the queen with them.

We got that photo to celebrate HM and PP's 60th wedding anniversary. So they might be saving the next big photo for their 70th, next year.

It would be good to get a proper picture of the family for her birthday. I just wish they took pictures a little bit often though. We get so many pictures of the other European royals, but it's a rarity to get family pictures of the Windors.

In a way in the UK its a bit harder. There are more generations and branches to wrangle, and they don't live very close. Where the Danes or Swedes for instance they live in Copenhagen or Stockholm much of the year (with exception of Maddie but she comes home a lot). Or the family 'vacation's, the grandkids are all still small, they aren't off with their own lives and duties. Christmas might be the best time to try and get the family together for a portrait as most of them manage to get to Sandringham but there always seems to be someone missing.

I was thinking the Christmas lunch they have before christmas might be when they might manage to get the most people together. And for all we know, they might have taken such a picture this year. (Hope not though, since William was not there and he seems like a rather important person to have in the picture :P) But I really hope they are not pushing forward (backward?) the time and thinking "ah, we'll do it next year".

The big family picture they did a while back the Queen's 80 I think. Had the Queen, Philip, her kids with spouses, adult grandkids with spouse ( It was only Autumn then, I think they were engaged) plus Sarah, David and their spouses, Duke & Duchess of Gloucester, Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra , Prince & Princess Michael. All in tuxes and evening gowns. It was pretty cool.
