It seems as something Camilla would wear.

Autumn's hat was not doing any favors for her -- it looked a size too large, and you could barely see her face. Nice color, but overwhelming.

Does anyone ever feel like hiring someone to snip P. Anne's wiry locks in the middle of the night (a la Sampson and Delilah)? I know we'll never see it, but can you imagine how lovely she would look with a shorter hair do. That style of sweeping it off of her face with a pouf and a chignon is not very becoming.

The York girls have no feeling for style. Very nouveau riche; others are dressing these girls. Send them to What Not to Wear, please!

The Queen looks like a million bucks as always. The one standard we can always count on fashion-wise.

I'm now sure that the Royals read these pages. Beatrice clearly taken my advice and tied her hair back, and, as I predicted, it looks much better. good girl!

Autumn looks very pretty. Hat's a tad big perhaps, but maybe she likes having something to hide under in these early days of having the Royal spotlight on her.

HM looks great, of course.

First thought when I saw Anne was that she'd made her fascinator herself. It doesn't look like a professional job to me. I had delightful visions of her chasing the hens around the yard and plucking a few feathers and then tying them to a comb like she was making a fly-fishing lure.

A bit background info on the dress code, which I found interesting:

The Queen wore what I call rich cream today for her hat and coat. Nice hat with floral trim to match the floral print dress under the coat.

Duke & Duchess of Gloucester and Prince & Princess Michael the only family travelling in the carriages. Duchess of Gloucester in green hat & matching green dress/coat and Princess Michael in small white hat and I think a white & black outfit.

This seems to have been based on the Daily Mail reports
as quoted in the article.

It goes on to say -

Should Mrs Middleton accept, it will be the first official encounter between the Queen
and

it was claimed that Mrs Middleton had used the word "toilet" and uttered the phrase "pleased to meet you" on meeting the Queen

How is it that the Queen always manages to make England look so cold? IMO it looks as if she's bundled up for snow, despite her lovely hat.

It was chilly today if you were sat about in an open top vehicle and as you get older, some feel the cold more.

Excluding Camilla on day one Princess Michael and the Duchess of Gloucester have surley been the best dressed this year. They could show the younger family members a thing or two. Talk about saving the best till last. Well done ladies!

Prince and Princess Michael looked gorgeous together. They are a perfect picture of old thoroughly bred aristocracy. It is sad that their children did not accompany them. I loved Her Majesty's outfit, which was very summer-themed.

Princess Michael did look extremely demure and elegant i have to say!

Michael always seems to have a lovely smile on his face, I'm sure he's a lovely man.

Are there any photos of his sister Princess Alexandra at Ascot from Wednesday??

Am I losing it, or is that the same outfit Princess Michael wore to Trooping of Colour? The hat and colors look the exact same....

Different coat, but it's definitely the same hat.

I'm sure the Duchess of Gloucester is thrilled by the way those photos are labelled "Princess Michael of Kent" as though she was Princess Michael's lady in waiting or something.
