Smile Royal Ladies

Isn't it wonderful to see the royal ladies getting along so well. It must make the Queen so happy to finally have peace in her family.

She has GOT to find another hat style! That thing looks like someone whacked it with a cleaver. I think she has worn several hats of similar style and they're not at all flattering. Nice color, though, but a terrible shape.

I agree the colour is extremely lovely but I am not about the shape of those hats. However it's nice to see her in something new.

Question Cheltenham Festival

Could someone please tell me what the Cheltenham Festival is? I'm from the states so I'm unfamiliar with the Festival. Also isn't that Sophie's father there to greet her in one of the pictures? I think Sophie look's great having fun from time to time with your hat style, well what's wrong with that? When you think how many formal occasion when she required to be a little more formal well I say have fun and don't take yourself so serious. At least she's not a slave to fashion.

The Cheltenham Festival has to do with the big National Hunt horse race meeting which takes place at Cheltenham racecourse in March every year.

I'm afriad that those horrible hats are very much in fashion, but that really isn't a good reason to still wear them.

Here is a pic of Edward and the Queen. From Royal Insight.

I love the Countess of Wessex's outfit at Cheltenham, it's very stylish! Nice to see Sophie with her father, I hope they are finding good support and friendship in each other after the passing of Mary last year.
