I love it. The Queen did look marvelous.
I really loved her overall look from her titfer, to her ensemble. It was such a great new look for her and definitely a nod to her daughter-in-law.

What a nice article for both Camilla and the queen - very flattering for both.

Umm didn't the Queen wear feathers on her head when Prince Edward married Sophie???

But Camilla and the Queen do look like they are wearing something very similiar.

I don't see how, on either accounts. Hardly a new trend and well, as is clear, was not influenced by Camilla. It is merely a fascinator which I'm sure boasts no meaningful depth or insight into the dynamics of the relationship between the two.

However a 'nod' (generically speaking) as in fetching taste on the Duchess' behalf? Well that I can certainly understand and would entirely agree with, though her liking of feathered fascinators is nothing new.

She certainly did. In a lovely mauve (or lavender).

Personally, I wasn't much taken by what the Queen wore to the Phillips wedding. She has looked far better styled as the above picture shall prove.

I'm not sure about HM, who did indeed look most fetching and the best-dressed by far, in my opinion. The elegant Duchess has worn the same outfit before and I think it was quite clever and appropriate for her to recycle. Both she and the Queen looked quite lovely, in my opinion, as did the bride and her attendants, whose gowns I thought delightful.

100% agreement here. I love the revived trend for fascinators. Greatly improved look for HM and Camilla elegant to say the least!

Testino is truly the best to take B&W portraits. The shots of Charles with William and Harry or the Diana ones are really brilliant.

The Testino photo of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall brings out her beauty as an older woman. I just love her hair and her eyes. I think what a nice person who is happy with life!

I saw a Picture of Camilla from the first day at Ascot. She and the Queen were dress in pastels and they looked lovely. I loved the hat that Camilla wore and I think she likes it too because she wears it every once in a while.

Others a Ascot were in vibrate colors that I did not find attractive. And some of the hats - not anything I could wear.

The Testino portrait is very becoming to her. Interesting that she chose such tailored garments.
