Well, roseroyal, now it is my time to agree with you! I think she shawl did no justice to the beautiful dress and the colours did not go very well together.

The dress is too beautiful to cover up with a dull gray shawl. Glad she took the shawl off.

From memory she wore this dress a few years ago - it would not be one of my favourites from her evening dress collection

Someone said she wore it on her tour of Germany a few years ago. And while the dress is not one of my favorites either, it is elegant. I like the silver trim against the dark blue. Have you seen it w/o the shawl? Quite nice.

The shawl is dispensible here Imo. At least not in this grim color... The dress is truly royal...

So I guessed right!
BTW, the dress must be very warm... My first association of it was a warm "dressing gown"

Who knows? Maybe it was cold in London? HM seems to like shawls at formal evening engagements. But in this case...
Looked like a giant piece of steel wool!

Definitely not well matched with the rest. But very adequate to the snowy weather that has also overwhelmed GB. Sometimes it's better to feel warm than smart and cold!

Indeed, I said it was worn for the State Visit 2004 to Germany; and she wore it once before, I believe in the Golden Jubilee. So HM The Queen recycles well. I am not a fan of the deep blue and the shawl... We always complain about a "snow, white Queen", but I think she is best in her white gowns.

Just to say the weather in England at the moment has been in the minus' for about 2 weeks. Warmth is definetely the way to dress.

The dress made it's first outing was during the 2004 State Visit to Germany, so there's no way it was worn during the Golden Jubilee, QueenElizabeth I know it has been worn once again in between 2004 and now, but have to look through though, I can't remember exactly when.

I like the Queen in white too, though she also looks good in gold, silver, and pastel tones. And I like a bit of sparkle...

Indeed you are right. The Queen wore the blue evening dress for the first time in Germany in 2004; and again at a dinner of the Royal Windsor Horse Show on 12 May 2006; so not her Golden Jubilee, but 80th birthday year, I knew it was a milestone year...

Au contraire from me... I am so fed up of seeing the Queen in white for evenings, it just washes her out. In this fab blue evening dress, she looks so much better, she's far too pale for all white IMHO.

The Queen looked splendid in electric blue! I also loved the big shawl - HM wore it well. It was something different and unique, definitely a very pleasant surprise!

Just came across this photo of the queen in slacks--one of the few that exist. This is at Getty Images and is copyright to Anwar Hussein Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected
