Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh Current Events 26: December 2014

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have arrived at a Service to mark the Centenary of the Order of the British Empire, at St Paul's Cathedral.

Normally The Queen would appear in her Mantle of the Order and a Tiara but today she has worn a green suit and hat.

http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/event/t...re-id687620862

But what is very odd is the The Duke of Edinburgh has appeared in his Mantle as Grand Master of the Order.

The Queen arrives at St Paul's Cathedral for OBE service | Daily Mail Online

I don't think The Queen is doing ceremonial dress this year due to the election. I guess Prince Philip can though.

Why would an election preclude ceremonial dress at a pre arranged event?

I wondered if they decided to keep it slightly more subdued due to the attack in Manchester?

If that's the case, why did Prince Philip appear in his ceremonial dress?

That's what I don't know. It's very odd.

No idea, but I don't believe it gas anything to do with the election or the events in Manchester.

IIRC, the election only impacts the formality of her dress at one event: the Opening of Parliament. I confess I don't really understand why the timing of the election changes what clothes she wears that day, but it's the custom for some reason.

I do hope someone will be able to decipher the difference in today's attire.

I think if it wasn't for the cut down on ceremonial dress this year, she would've worn her mantle and tiara. Especially for the centenary of the order. Perhaps it's down to her not wearing it, because Philip sure did arrive in his mantle and collar.

It turns out The Queen just decided to wear a day dress instead of the orders robe dress. Nothing to do with the election year or the Manchester bombing.

It's a good, important gesture and I like the fact that she made the visit herself instead of another member of the family!

It has to mean a lot to the victims, their families, and the health care workers who are tirelessly caring for them to have QEII herself visit. Well done!
