Sorry, but the Queen would NEVER divulge information she shares with her prime ministers, and especially not with her Private Secretary.

She is always extremely well briefed.

Oh my! the fashion designer looked like she messed up on her own hat, it looks as if a someone placed a feather duster atop her head!

Do you suppose it could be another Phillip Treacy concoction?? It is amazing how the Queen is able to keep a straight face... But perhaps she is used to it by now with her York granddaughters wearing silly hats!

According to this report it was a Philip Treacy concoction.

The dress was her own design.

What a lovely pic of the Queen with Dame Emma Kirkby (3). She looks so happy to be presenting the medal to her.

What do you think of the dress? Personally I thought it a bit loud, however, HM always looks lovely, IMO.

Tomorrow is EPSOM DERBY DAY and there are not many in the country who dont wish HM to win her first Derby! The 3 year old colt Carlton House is a gift from Sheikh Mohammed, he and HM swapped horses and the Sheikh refused to take any money.

Carlton House, despite a last minute injury scare, seems to be fit and will go as favourite into the competition, ridden by Ryan Moore, trained by Sir Michael Stoute.

GOOD LUCK!

Oh lucky Queen! The Isles of Scilly are amazingly beautiful and peaceful, expecially if you venture to the smaller islands! They are part of the Duchy of Cornwall and if you're rich enough you can rent a cottage owned by the Duchy!

The Queen looks lovely and the bright colors are very nice but I have to say that I am NOT a fan of all the wild florals that have been chosen for her, too close to curtain and drapery fabric, imo. Some days her ensembles are lovely and others ... not so much.

Love both of The Queen's outfits, with their eye-popping colors- perfect for spring! Oh. My. Gosh. That makes Beatrice's hat look nice!

Personally I think she looks best in the solid colors. As you said, the patterns look too chintzy and in a way I think makes her look a bit dowdy. I've never been a fan of prints so maybe its just me. Although, the pattern she wore with the outfit in these pics, this ensemble does look good on her. The hat sets it off.
