Just as well the Queen is use to all types not very good press here and the fellow looked like a laughing stock to me I guess politically it had to be done.

Agree - I'm sure she was very gracious and professional as always. I adore seeing all of this pomp and ceremony. No one does it like the British.

Will The Duchess of Cornwall please put this ditty dotty horrible spotty dress in a brown paper bag and deposit in the next charity bin she comes across.

I hated it the first time she wore it on the Canadian visit, then she wore it again!! when leaving Canada. Then on the 19th Feb at Stoke on Trent and now for the presidential visit.

And I know other royal watchers will know of more occasions. Transfer my comments to the fashion page. Just spread the word. I will be 'delighted' never to see that frock again.

Ha ha - though I have to admit the dress did not look half bad with the green coat and hat when they received the Zuma's!

I thought that spotty thing was a scarf at first glance. Didn't realize it was a dress. Oh well, at least most of it was covered up.

It is a pity the photographers can not get a good closeup clear pic of the Queens long diamond stiff brooch. Last worn by the Qu Mum around early 1950s.

I read in a magazine that the brooch the Queen wore when saying goodbye to President Zuma was a gift to her from Nelson Mandela.
