And an article to go with them.

Purple rain: Queen Elizabeth brightens up a damp day in a stylish violet coat and trendy fedora hat on a visit to the Jubilee Gardens
Quote:
The rain couldn't dampen the Queen's spirits, or her wardrobe choices for today's visit to the rebuilt Jubilee Gardens in London. Her majesty chose a bright purple coat with matching accessories including an on-trend fedora-style felt hat and a purple-trimmed umbrella. Prince Philip joined his wife at the ceremony to mark the recent transformation of the Jubilee Gardens which was completed 35 years after they were first created in 1977 to celebrate the Queen's silver jubilee.

May I ask a quick question about the last photo with the gentleman in uniform.
I see this sort of uniform every time the Royals are out and about but can't figure out the branch or service. Anyone?

Well, it's the British Army No. 1 Dress Uniform.

Various patterns exist in the British Army; you can see quite a few of them in this picture of senior offices at presentation of new colours to Sandhurst (incidentally, you can also spot Prince Harry; he's the cadet on the far right).

The dress uniform worn by the officer in the picture with the Queen appears to correspond to the dress uniform worn by the officer on the left. Other than that, there is little than can be told without a picture from the front.

I expect that was the Lord Lieutenant of the county. They wear the dress uniform of an army major general.

I always love seeing pictures of Her Majesty with kids. She has an air of a 'Granny' around her, and kids sense that (even when they get shy, like the little girl that presented the flowers).

Wow! Her Majesty looks absolutely divine, and kudos to her for wearing high heels with the dress ! His Highness still cuts a dashing figure in black tie. Not too shabby.

Duke of Edinburgh quips as he receives honorary doctorate from Plymouth - ITV News

"It's now quite a long time since I started my university career, but unlike most people I started at the wrong end. I became Chancellor of the University of Wales in 1947 and I've been going downhill ever since."

LOL
