I especially like seeing her in the tartan. I wish the Princes would wear more of the tartan like the Queen's sons.

I just saw photographs of the Queen at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, and oddly enough, her shoes didn't match! They were of a similar style, but one was brown and one was black. Bobo would never have let that happen.

Disgraced former Royal butler boasts he's still in touch with Wills and Harry

What are we to believe in this article about the butler who served under the Queen and Princess Di?

Buckingham Palace denies the report that the Queen met up with Burrell at the Kentucky Derby.

Disgraced former Royal butler boasts he's still in touch with Wills and Harry

Princess Diana's former servant Paul Burrell has found a tawdry new way of trading on his old Royal connections - touring America with wine branded the "Royal Butler Collection'.

He has been boasting that he remains close to the Royal Family, claiming he met the Queen at the Kentucky Derby last week and was still in contact with the Royal Princes.
As he autographed bottles of the Chardonnay, Shiraz and sparkling rose he is importing from Australia - and which sell for between £5 and £7.50 a bottle - at a Miami supermarket last week, he told shoppers: "The Queen and I are still close, but I can't say too much.

No, and neither would her current dresser. This is not some old lady rummaging in a dark cupboard for a matching shoe. You're talking about someone who has every item of clothing laid out for her every day of her life.

The shoes in question are shaded leather brogues and if you look at a number of pictures the variation in colours in due to (1) the angle of the photo and (2) the wetness of the grass causing changes to some parts & not others and (3) variations in light & shadow falling on the shoes.

Hitting him in the backside is the last thing I need to worry about. He appears to have changed sex since we last met

I suspect she might have worn them more often when she was younger. I have a pic of her visiting the island of St Kilda in the Outer Hebrides in 1971. It looks as though it was cold there, but no-one's wearing gloves though so it can't have been freezing-absolutely-must-wear-trousers cold. It's not just a family do, she's being introduced to some military types by a fellow in johdpurs and is about to shake hands with them.

Remember all the pictures of her in trousers from the various days of the cruise last summer? The queen-wearing-trousers subject was discussed then too.
