Ahh, thank you. And looking at the fist pic in this gallery I now know why I didn't recognize him at first

I wouldn't recognize my own father in that hat!

I thought both Autumn and Princess Michael looked fantastic.

Actually, the queen looked nice. Camilla wears the same tired look time and time again. It looks like someone shot a flock over her head and they and a flowerpot landed on her head. Enough!!

Camilla is wearing a headpiece appropriate for a small child who is a flowergirl at a wedding - the headpiece looks ridiculous!
The Queen who has looked sensational lately looks too stark in her monocromatic turquoise outfit. She needs a printed scarf or another color up near her face to break up the harshness of the color. The whole effect too hard looking on her.

I just can't get used to seeing Anne on the balconey in uniform.

I like Camilla's hat but not for her. She looked like a girl...Maybe for Sophie but not for her. No Yorks at the Trooping? I like the Duchess of Gloucester. She's lovely.

I think the feathered head pieces are becoming DoC's trademark now. And they look good on her.

What's confusing me is why William has the Garter sash and star on? I thought the Garter ceremony is Monday.

I think the Queen has invested (Not sure whether the word is right) William earlier on in May or so, rather than at the actual Ceremony on Monday. So as a Knight of the Garter, he is allowed to wear it.

How much is that 'unplucked' Camilla in the window...

I like feathers, and I like flowers...but it's all we see her wear atm...

I'm currently of a similar mind with the Crown Princess of Denmark, in that Mary seems to have given up on hats altogether at this point in time.

I do like the Duchess in hats though, and large one's with feathers at that.

On a different note...

William looked superb!!! I confess I hardly follow the younger generation of royals as I find them dull and uninspiring, but boy did he look dashing in the Order of the Garter...he wears it so well. He reminded me, in some way, of the late Duke of Clarence (awaits Polly's charge..haha.)

It always amazes me how every year Princess Michael edges her way up to the middle, next to the main members of the royal family, this time next to Prince William. The Duke and Duchess of Gloust. and Kent should be there! here's princess pushy for you!!!

I remember the queen mother and her love for flowers and frills and feathers on her head. Maybe that's what Charles likes and Camilla wears her headgear not to please us but him.

Why should she dress to please her husband? Or, dress to typify his late grandmothers choice of fashion. That's got a rather creepy element to it, imo.

I'd have thought, and would hope, that Camilla should dress to her liking first and foremost and if her husband happens to admire her taste, then that's a bonus.

I only wanted to point out two things:

1. Camilla is not the first in the RF to have fun with feathers, flowers and frills.
2. Most women are content if their choice of fashion is liked by their husbands - they need not public applause to feel good with their choice but it's nice to get it from hubby.

Don't see where anything remotely "creepy" come into it.

Then it must have been the way you worded it because it read to me that Camilla may infact dress somewhat like the late QM to make Charles happy. So yeah, that would be creepy.

Clearly a misunderstanding now corrected.

I thought the hat exuberant, with the sun catching the tiny leaves it was very springlike. Would I choose it for myself.. no, but then like most women I have my own idea of what suits me. For most women it is a miracle if their outfit is liked by their husband, but then we are in an age where women are allowed to dress to please themselves are we not? Like you, I am puzzled as to why wearing something your husband likes is creepy. Look on it this way, Camilla doesn't do expected or boring.

At least Sophie was not in one of her Paddington Bear hats, although I feared she might take off!

HM was nice and bright and foot tapping happy.

I don't believe he is entitled to become a full Lieutenant until December, when it will be 2 years since he passed out.

I now know where my flower bush ended up, on Camilla. What a hat to wear, its just too much and with her hair im lost for words.

Sophie looked lovely, loved her outfit, loved how radiant she looked. Not much a fan of her hat though.

Queen looked very colorful which I really liked, its good to see her in bright colors at that age.

The Balconey pictures are lovely of the family, only was missing the young royal girls, Prince Andrews daughters.
