The journey has started:

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip get a send off from The Lord
Chamberlain upon departing London's Heathrow Airport bound for
the Caribbean. The Queen had to keep a firm hold of her hat to
prevent it from blowing off at a windy Heathrow, November 24,
2009:

International Airport, St George, Bermuda, at the beginning of a
three day tour of the Island.

Here are some pics of the walkabout yesterday, the Queen
was wearing a very strong colour, the previous pics or the
video didn't show it that much. Pic 3 with Prince Philip is very
nice and on pic 5 she smiles at islanders dressed in period
costumes.

Square, St. George's in Bermuda November 24, 2009.

On the BBC news this morning they had a very short clip of HM at a reception (evening?), but it went really fast, and I can't find any photos of the event anywhere...anyone else had any luck finding some? (HM had on a fine black lace jacket over a pale cocktail dress)

Thanks so much for the yahoo link bweir

HM looked OK but could have been fabulous with a little shape at the waist of her dress

Certainly not the first time that she wore the earrings, they were worn previously at a Garter Day.

HM looked wonderful. Good to see the festoon necklace and QMs earrings out.

Unless HM wore them while the QM was still alive (unlikely) I don't think so.

Earring Roster:

2009 -- Dubai Sapphires
2008 -- Rubies
2007 -- George VI Wedding Gift sapphires
2006 -- Cluster earrings (VERY similar to the Queen Mother's earrings worn in Bermuda, but not quite)
2005 -- Victoria's Diamond studs (I think. Large single diamonds)
2004 -- Queen Victoria's earrings (pear shaped drop)
2003 -- Diamond Earrings with three drops

2002 -- Large pearl button earrings

Whilst ordinarily I would have agreed with your comment, I just don't think it is relevant in the case of an 83 year old lady. I think we can all have differing views on whether we liked her dress or not, but I doubt if many people would disagree that she looked wonderful.
