I found a sweet story about the Queen on vacation.

"I was the Queen's chauffeur for the day."

True but I've never seen her wear pants to a function like this. I've seen her in her riding outfit, and the picture of her after the knee operation.
AFAIK, she has always worn a dress to public functions.

It is not an official function but its more to private or family affair.Public function is official function or engagements.

I think what BMC meant was that s/he had never seen HM before meeting commoners wearing trousers. I was quite taken aback too.

The Queen looks very relaxed in those pictures & almost giddy with her smile (at least that is how it looks to me) :)

It is surprising to see her in trousers, but that outfit does look good on her.

I had that Queen in my car the other day

A STARTLED shopkeeper's family car was turned into a royal carriage when he became the Queen's chauffeur for a day.

What a lovely story. Unexpected royals popping in, and having a conversation with the Queen.

I could say 'he will be dining out on that story for years', except there are very few places to dine on Gigha. It must have been so lovely for him and his family, something to stay in their memories for a long, long time. :)

Right, I'll remember that BMC. I felt the same way because although I've seen HM wear trousers at certain private events like when Philip goes carriage driving, this time it was as if she was making a public appearance in trousers. She did look nice but I still prefer her usual style.

Article from HELLO
There aren't many wardrobes that can boast crystal and pearl-encrusted gowns, but then again the Queen's dress collection was always going to be an extraordinary affair. Now the public can gain an insight into the monarch's private collection as the largest exhibition to date of her glittering evening gowns and personal jewellery has gone on show at Buckingham Palace..................
