Normally I don't like the whole feathered hat thing, but I actually like the hat and the whole outfit! The colors go good together, and the coat looks really warm!

That's why I love HM.

This fills me with sadness because of all the ARK ROYAL jobs which will be lost at Rosyth, Edinburgh.
The Queen must have found the occasion poignant because her mother commissioned the aircraft carrier, and she herself will eventually preside over the the decommissioning ceremony. :-(

Me as well. She was part of the Fleet Review celebrating Canada's Naval Centennial during The Royal Visit in June and July. I still laugh when I see the image in my mind's eye of HMCS St. John going past HMS Ark Royal, as our little frigate looked like a toy next to that huge aircraft carrier.

What a shame.

I'm very surprised that HM did not wear the new brooch presented on her last visit to Turkey! Most unusual to break that habit!

Do you have a pic of the new brooch that was presented to HM, Gill? I don't remember what it looks like. Also, what brooch is she wearing during this presentation?

Sorry, I don't have a clear one which would be allowed on this board (copyright reasons) but it was a long slender pink enamelled tulip with a fine green stem and leaf.

Today's brooch was a wedding present and has a folded gold net at the bottom with three diamond calla lilies each with a tiny red line representing the spike (sorry I don't know the botanical terminology!) in the middle of each of the flowers. It's often been worn on red outfits.

Ah dear Gill! I remember the tulip brooch very well now, thanks to your description! It is strange for HM not to have worn it as it Is her custom to do so...

Thank you ever so much for your help. :)
