Prince Andrew will play a supporting role to the Queen in Abu Dhabi - Telegraph

In what amounts to a break with tradition for the Queen, she and the Duke of Edinburgh will be accompanied by a third member of their family – the Duke of York – when they make their state visit to Abu Dhabi this week.

"The Queen would not normally make an official journey of this kind with one of her children, but the Duke, as the UK's special representative for international trade and investment, has close links with the region," a courtier tells Mandrake.

That is a lightning-fast state visit for each country. I know that state visits in the West usually last 2 1/2 days, but the UAE visit is no more than a day and the Oman visit is less than two days. Is that normal for trips to this part of the world?

The dress beneath the gold surcoat is nice and looks good with the toque hat - and what appears to be a new brooch (see QE Brooches thread on that) - Not to be confused with a beaded design down the front of the coat.

Straight to work for the Queen. She must have a lot of energy.

I think that HMs version of Islamic chic (complete with hat and scarf) somewhat works for her

I have an ID question: Who are the ladies accompanying The Queen when she visited the mosque? I think they must be members of Abu Dhabi Emirati Family, please identify if you know
