She simply owns pairs of identical shoes because she prefers a limited range of types.

The picture you posted is the same which appears on the book Jubilee by Tim Graham.
Caption:
The Queen favours a classic style of shoe with a medium heel for walkabouts and standabouts. This pair were made by H & H Rayne.

I quote another caption, about the Queen's shoemakers:
Lasts of The Queen's feet, created by H & H Rayne, are still in use many years later by Anello & Davide, where David Hyatt produces many of the classic designs that have become The Queen's "trademark". Styles with names such as "Aretha", "Bari" and "Condessa" are among those favoured by The Queen.

In 1995, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of VE Day, The Royal Family attended celebrations at Hyde Park, and also a Party for Head of States at Guildhall. Will there be more events like this this year?This year it will be 60th anniversary, so it's more important.It will take place on 8th of May.But on the Royal Engagements, they have not told any celebrations about it yet.

They are the two major isles of the Channel Islands (or Iles Normandes), located in the Channel, near Normandy (France).
They are Crown dependencies, i.e. possessions of the British Crown, but they are not part of the United Kingdom nor are they part of the European Union.
They have their own currencies and flags.
Official languages are English and French.
Other islands are Alderney, Sark, Herm (which are dependencies of Guernsey) and others very small (shared between Jersey and Guernsey).

The launch of The Melbourne 2006 Queen's Baton Relay:

The Melbourne 2006 Queen's Baton Relay will be launched with a Commencement Ceremony at Buckingham Palace on 14th MArch 2005, at which The Queen will hand the Baton to the first relay runner, model Elle MacPherson. The Baton will then be passed to Olympic gold medalists Cathy Freeman and Kelly Holmes, then to British boxer Amir Khan before it begins its journey around the Commonwealth.
The Queen's Baton contains Her Majesty's message to the athletes, and is carried from Buckingham Palace, across the Commonwealth to the Opening Ceremony of Commonwealth Games.
The Queen's Baton Relay is one of the great traditions of The Commonwealth Games. It has been the curtain raiser to every Games since Cardiff 1958, and symbolises the gathering of people from across The Commonwealth in celebration of this four-yearly festival of sport and culure.
The baton will travel more than 180,000 kilometres and visit all 71 nations of The Commonwealth in one year and one day-making the Melbourne 2006 Queen's Baton Relay the word's longest, the most inclusive relay. The Baton will be carried across the globe-over land, air and sea-by thousands of relay runners on many differents mode of transport.
The elegant, curved from the Baton takes its inspiration from the physical form of athletes arching forward as they strive for success.
The 71 lights on the front of the baton indicate the 71 nations of The Commonwealth that the Queen's baton will visit on its journey to the Games.These will progressively light up as the baton arrives in each Commonwealth country.
The materials used in the manufacture of The Melbourne 2006 Queen's Baton-gold and magnesium-hold special significance to the people of the State of Victoria, of which Melbourne is the capital.
The Queen's Baton Relay harnesses the very latest in digital and other communication technology to enable people across the globe to join the baton on its epic journey to the Opening Ceremony of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwelath Games.The high-tech Baton tracking technology housed in the baton enables schoolchildren, aldults, families and friends to pinpoint the baton's whereabouts live on the Internet.

Judging from the Queen's attire, it must have been seriously cold at Sandown yesterday. She looks as though she's dressed for winter in Siberia.

I think maybe he will attend a Party at Guildhall like other State Visit has.The Duke and The Duchess of Gloucester often attend that.

Was one of Queen Elizabeth's horses competing? Or perhaps she was only there for the fun of it, enjoying what she loves.
