Nice to see Andrew Parker Bowles is still in the circle. HM and D of E look wonderful, what an inspiration they are.

Considering that we often see Her Majesty recycle outfits that are several years old I doubt that her shape has changed much over the past decade or so. The coat maybe a bit shapeless but that color blue is amazing on her! We can all hope to be that beautiful at 83!

Thats a stunning blue on the Queen. The hat is beautiful aswell. I think Her Majesty is the same size as she has been for years and I don't think that the coat is too big.

I agree. I would say that it is the cut of her outfits that sometimes make her look heavier than she really is.

Hope I look as good at 83 as she does!

Tiong Hiew King, founder and chairman of the notorious Malaysian Rimbunan Hijau Group, has been bestowed with a knighthood - Bruno Manser Fund: "Tiong is unfit for such a distinction, Queen should deprive him of his knighthood"

They always have to point the finger against the Queen. But the BE is awarded according to government's choice.

I really do like HM's outfit last weekend with the deep royal blue. A nice outing for the Empress Feodorovna's sapphire brooch.

The Queen wore this same outfit in 1996, so I doubt her weight has changed very much!

I agree with you. She is a magnificent woman, with everything she has to look after, her family, her country. She still has time to enjoy her hobbies and yet she looks incredible.

I'm a bit disappointed with what the Queen has been wearing lately - she's been rocking some fab looks, and then the turquoise doiley on Ladies day followed by this - which is much better but the shape is terrible. I think we'll just have to assume her dresser is on holidays, and will be back soon with some clothes that fit... Fingers crossed!

The Royal Wardrobe: Fashion fit for Queen Elizabeth II.
On her first Commonwealth tour alone the Queen took 100 different outfits. Add all the tours she has made since then and you get an awful lot of dresses. We have a look at the ultimate working wardrobe.

There is still this silly myth that the Queen only ever wears an outfit once, which is total rubbish (I know that is not what you are saying, Lillibetforever).
So I'd like to bet that every one of those 100 outfits appeared on many more ocassions and probably even other foreign tours too. Because she is photographed hundreds of days every year of course she needs a huge wardrobe, but she is extremely clever at "ringing the changes" so that most people hardly, if ever, notice an outfit is being repeated.

Queen cancels investiture at Buckingham Palace - Telegraph

The decision was taken the night before for the Princess Royal to step in to hand out awards. The Prince of Wales, who would usually deputise, was on engagements in Wales with the Duchess of Cornwall

I wish Her Majesty a speedy recovery.
Catching a cold is rather unpleasant for this time of the year.
