Well, superficial little ol' me thought HM looked just wonderful. And with the little girl, an absolute joy. Thanks everyone for the pics.

Yes, superficial me thought she looked fab too - I like it when she doesn't just have one colour on, that can look a bit too 'blocked', ths black accents look really nice. And the pics of the little girl retrieving her programme are lovely.

I thought the girl picking up the Queen's program was very sweet. In the same picture, I think that the priest to the left of the Queen looks a bit like Dawn French as The Vicar of Dibley.

For once, the TV news where I live actually showed a small portion of the service, which was a nice change.

I love that picking up sequence.
Very nice dress and brooch.

We in the United Kingdom certainly wish her a long life. She is a consummate politician without the party politics! And the alternatives aren't particularly pleasing.....

Every year at Easter The Queen presents special 'Maundy money' to local pensioners in a UK cathedral or abbey.

The presentation takes place on Maundy Thursday in recognition of the service of elderly people to their community and their church.

This year the Maundy Service will take place at Westminster Abbey on 21 April 2011.

A rare public appearance for the Queen on her actual birthday. She usually spends that day quietly with her family.

This wonderful lady is the prime definition of the phrase "85 years young".

I absolutely love the color co-ordination of the outfits that HM has been wearing lately and the blues and the purples are my favorite. With this outfit today, I noticed not only a beautiful brooch but also a similar decoration on the hat. Can anyone tell me if the one on the hat is anything special or just a decoration?

She does look just wonderful. The brooch is the Jardine Star, but I've not seen the decoration on her hat. It could be something she has never worn before, or it could be "just a decoration."
