I believe this is the visit you're looking for -- it was on September 12, the same day as Lord Frederick Windsor's wedding.

How ridiculous.
The blue tweed outfit is stunning.

Did anyone else notice how the buttons on HM hat were switched after the ensemble was re-designed? Interesting bit of trivia, I thought. :)

Thank you for the photos showing the "switch", lumut! The outfit is so much smarter and chic with the new design, imho. Simply stunning....

That's very odd as I was well aware of that visit happening, and the clash of a Saturday offical engagement (extremely rare) with the family wedding, and yet it is not in my database - can't understand that at all, unless I've accidentally erased it! Many thanks for your help on filling in the gap!

Glad to be of help, Gill! I think that event got sort of buried under the wedding coverage that weekend.

Gill - even revered fonts of knowledge have occasional slip ups. We won't mention it again ;-))

I find it odd that the buttons were moved about on the hat - I mean - why bother! THe outfit is much better without the frill though.

Thank you James - I'll try to live up to my reputation in future!

I do think the new arrangement of buttons is slightly better, but I hadn't noticed it. I would love to know why they bothered however! Probably just part of general upgrade to the outfit, I expect.

Your reputation is intact, Gill. Rest assured! I rather like the new arrangement of the buttons as well. The upgrade is well done....

The Queen is wearing a black gown for the Royal Variety Performance. I dont think I've ever seen the Queen wearing a black gown before. She is wearing it with the 3 strands of diamonds(what is this necklace called again) and I think, the Queen Mums earrings.

It is an unusual colour for her to wear and I must say she looks quite good in black. Perhaps she should wear it more often.

How amazing - a beautiful gown, but as I recall the Queen normally only ever wears black for mourning.

(I remember lots of "tutting" when Diana wore the original Emmanuel black gown on her first important evening event after her engagement.....)

Another wearing of the diamond trefoil necklace, and her mothers's diamond flower earrings. Maybe they will become a fixture from now on.

An article of the Queen and the Duke at the Royal Variety.

I wonder what HM was thinking when she say Lady Gaga's outfit.

She looks more like the Queen of Hearts from Alice's adventures in Wonderland.

one thing that stood out for mei in that photo was the obvious use of waht they used to call "rouuge" in my mothe's time. We call is blush. Who did her makeup on that onE?

Goodness, what I wouldn't give to have been privy to the private conversation between HM & DOE in the car on the way home after this "Variety" performance!! Between Lady Gaga's homage to the red panda and Miley Cyrus' well I don't even know what to call it... I'm quite sure that there was plenty to discuss.
