That's what I thought - she looks like Churchill crossed with Angela Lansbury!

A very touching story. Funny how we don't even hear or see any pictures of the Ghillies’ Ball these days. Is this event still held today?

From diamond crown jewels to a humble headscarf (though it IS Hermes): A day in the life of the Queen as she dashes from State Opening of Parliament to rainy Windsor Horse Show | Mail Online

Quote:
Just this morning, the Queen attended the Opening of Parliament dressed in her full State finery.
The Imperial State Crown was perched on her perfect candyfloss curls and her diminutive figure was shrouded in the impressive 18ft fur-trimmed Robe Of State.
Hours later though, the monarch cut a very different figure as she hunkered down under a headscarf (Hermes, naturally) and navy raincoat against the grim British weather.
At times, as the rain drizzled down and the corners of her headscarf blew about in the breeze, the monarch's mouth was set in a grim line.
But appearances can be deceiving and the Queen, attending the first day of the Windsor Horse Show, would likely have been in her element.

HM packs into one day more than I do in three days and I can bet my last donut which event she looked forward to the most.

I watched the State Opening of Parliament early this morning and had noticed how drear the weather seemed to be and as Philip got out of the carriage, I noticed his hand by the window of the carriage and that the window was open. It had to have been a nippy ride for them to say the least. This ceremony was especially poignant as we watched HM and her son both participate knowing that its been announced that Charles will be stepping up and taking on more duties representing his mother. This actually doesn't surprise me as I think we got a clue last year in the Jubilee celebrations where HM traveled around the nations and left visits to the commonwealth nations to the younger ones.

Princ Philip was out and about too in the afternoon!
Home - ITNSource News

These too never stop Both relaxing after the Opening of Parliament by doing what they like : quietly inspecting horses for one, going around a ship and talking to a lot of people for the other.

Must say the contrast between the regal Queen at the State Opening of Parliament and the cuddly granny at the horse show is especially cute!

Oh, I can too!I have heard that those carriages get very hot- they probably kept the window open so HM would not faint!Though they should be cautious given what happens when Prince Phillip is in cold weather!
