No I didn't. I wish she had have asked me my opinion though - who wears a hat and coat to go on holiday? Ok so she's off to that Commonwealth booze up but surely she could have roughed it for the plane to Malta? I love the two outfits but I think it's a little OTT. She's turning into Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Well, two outfits for a trip is actually "roughing it" for The Queen. When she came here to the US, she changed like four times in one day; of course, to be fair, she had that many engagements going on. I dunno.... all I know is that her two outfits for Malta today were both brilliant.

According to the Telegraph, Brenda gave Phil the Royal Victorian Chain last night as an anniversary gift.

Is the Uganda thing a tiara affair?

This is so hilarious!

Philip's the name, mischief's the game as Prince sneaks up on ITN girl | the Daily Mail

Prince Philip strolled past the ITN crew in Uganda, presumably during the military inspection, and he asked if the journalist was "finished?" making her burst out laughing........ Classic!
The pictures are so cool.... He listened in while the reporter was talking about him and The Queen, how classic is that?

Thank you very much, Myriam

Here are more pics from today, the dress is a bit different but I think
it's been a good choice to wear such a happy and colourful one ..

The Queen and prince Philip on a visit to a specialist Aids clinic and
children's hospital run by the UK-based Aids charity, Mildmay, in Uganda.

There will be a tiara at Uganda a the garter star for The Queen.
