WOW. I just love the tweed and fur outfit, even if it is something Vesta would wear.

Yes, its so precious, she's probably doing it on purpose, she's worn so much fur trim on this visit and again on the last day

Thankyou. I missed the hello list. I love the pink hat, it seems to me inspired from an aussie diggers hat

Visit in photos of royal trip to Slovakia. She seems to have recyled clothes. I wonder if the Duke did?

Great Pictures of HM's clothes in this article from the Mail!

At the grand old age of 82, it seems the Queen has decided you're never too old for a style makeover.

After years of being criticised for her staid image, she appeared on an official engagement in Slovakia today looking younger and cooler than ever

Now, this is a dress (the one she wears at the Slovakian state banquet).

The problem with Her Majesty's evening dresses is that they often have an unfitting shape, especially in the lower part (let's say the skirt), which make her look like she's wearing a sack (sorry Ma'am).
But this is a good one. Oh, and it also has a neckline allowing the whole necklace to be on the skin as it should be, which we rarely see.

The Slovenian banquet dress wasn't too bad either, but - as I said - the fur trim didn't look that good, IMO.


All the other outfits are very stilish: I particualarly like the red one and the black and white one. The boots too are lovely.

Do you think she is taking a cue from Ms. Middleton?

HM is looking wonderful, and happy. Has anyone seen any info on whether all the fur she's worn on this visit is the real thing? I have no doubt those boots are real leather.

Prince Philip has branded tourism ‘national prostitution’ in his latest unfortunate gaffe.
He made the shocking comment to a professor during his State visit with the Queen to Slovenia last week

Prince Philip's gaffes are a stale story. It is great that he still makes fun of certain things by putting Her Majesty into awkward situations. At the same time, Prince Philip should not forget that tourists bring some money to Buckingham Palace.

I think he meant prostitution in a different sense to 'ladies of the night'

It does not really matter what Prince Philip has meant, the "national prostitution" tends to sound both awkward and embarrassing.

There are several videos of the Queen in Slovakia on the website of the President of Slovakia. Currently, they are all on the first and second pages.
