Sam, how lucky for you to have been at some of the private driving events! If you don't mind, could you share the times and places? I know it's not Royal Windsor, because except for being there in riding habit a few times, she wears skirts there.

By the way, the Queen wore trousers to at least one engagement in Canada (in the 70's I believe). It was in the far north and she also wore a fur-trimmed parka. And looked gorgeous, needless to say.

Queen earns her holiday as hardest-working Royal

AT THE age of 80 the Queen has regained her position as the hardest working member of the Royal Family, leaving most of the younger generations far behind.

Thanks purple_platinum for posting the pictures. Her Majesties dresses are splendid! Some of them are simplt breathtaking!
Can anyone tell me when did Her Majesty wear these dresses? I know it's probably hard to find out (at least I didn't manage to) but maybe someone knows.

The yellow dress was worn in Dubai, during a visit to some Middle East countries. I think the year was 1979.

The yellow dress she wore in the Gulf States is just gorgeous. Its so chic and something Jackie O would wear. Even now it would still be chic and great. Some of these dresses would still look good today.

Thank you very much ElisaR for your answer. That dress is really gorgeous and not the most typical of Her Majesty's gowns, that's why I wondered.

What a great story. I really love the Queen, and I'm not British!

Sorry, I completely missed this! I have a cousin who works at the Palace and he's allowed to invite family members to Polo matches, carriage driving etc at Windsor. I've been a few times but I've never met the Queen. She's often there, standing by her 4x4 in trousers, blouse and a barbour with some of the dogs.

Queen owns two-bed terrace

The Queen, normally known for her palatial residences such as Balmoral, Buckingham Palace and Sandringham, has a new property - a run down, rat-infested mid-terrace house.

Thank you for the picture of the Queen in trousers. I don't think they were 'private' events as such but, the Queen does go and watch Prince Phillip competing in his carriage driving events, where she is not on official duty. I have to say, like you, I have only seen her in country style skirts and jodphurs at the events I have seen.

The Queen did not intend to meet commoners but they were there (on their own but not invited) to see The Queen boarding the ship.So you can't say that The Queen wore pants to meet the public on private or family events.On formal and official duties and engagements,The Queen wears dress,hat and gloves.Even Buckingham Palace spokesperson refused to comment about the holiday saying that the holiday was The Queen's private moment with her family and they would not comment on private or personal matters / affairs.

I really love that lace/tulle dress from 1953 she wore in new zealand. really wonderful dresses,im very upset that im not going to be in london to see this exhibit personally. i did manage to see the famous dress she wore to france which was on display in kensington palace---does anyone know if that dress is part of this collection on exhibit??? whats amazing in a lot of these dresses is the detail and workmanship. the queen must have felt quite nostalgic when she went through the exhibit!

Did the Queen want to abdicate after Di's death?

London, Aug 14(ANI): If the story of new film 'The Queen' is to be believed, Elizabeth II, shocked at the public anger towards her, considered abdicating in the days after Princess Diana died.

Skydragon..thanks for the info. But needless to say...that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. The Queen, who was brought up to do her duty...abdicating. NEVER.
