Ah, but threre are some reassuring constants...the media is still trotting out the "turns off all the lights" line some 30 (or is it 40?) years after it was first mentioned.
I wouldn't be surprised if it turned up yet again in her obituary.

Her Majesty looked magnificent "wearing a silver gown made from material given to her as a present more than 20 years ago". It is great to see her performing official engagements.

Gorgeous red on the Queen there. The hat's a stunner too, a much better arrival outfit that the one for Slovenia (though I loved that one it's more a Scotland job).

She got given an amazing stud in Lipica! I bet she was pleased by that gorgeous horse.

Did she change on the plane? I don't think she left Slovenia in that red. And I agree, red is much better than the blue dress she wore in Slovenia.

The horse was amazing, it's a shame it's not coming back to England.

By the way, welcome to the forums!

Yes, as she often does. She left Slovenia wearing pale pink herringbone wool, with her small squarish flower brooch with blue stones, but changed into the very bright red, with the Queen Mother's Australian Hibiscus ruby & diamond brooch.

I'm not sure about the fur trim, but the ruby tiara is really beautiful.

thanx for the Welcome, BeatrixFan. Aparently it's the best horse the stud farm has for competitios, hehe...

All in all I think she is dresses much better now in Slovak Rep then in Slovenia. I wonder who decides that. Or perhpas it's just a question of taste.

Is that a real fur stole HM is wearing at the state banquet in Slovakia? Pink will be furious!! Didn't the news report that HM would be recycling her outfits, but they seem to be all new to me

I don't think HM is that worried about what Pink thinks.
