I love the color but I am not a fan of the suit look on HM. I much prefer the long coat look that she wore on her visit to Canada or Australia that Artemisia so graciously posted.

I'm sorry but I don't think the outfit for F&M was well selected. Seeing how many employees wore scarfes or ties in this special colour I got the impression she looked a bit like a lady valet of the shop. And her hat... well it had a distinctive resemblance to one layer of the wedding cake they showed to the Royal ladies before they were given their hampers....

IMHO, of course. And allow me to add that I am normally delighted by HM choice of clothes, by her style and the beautiful materials and colours.

Well, you took the words right out of my mouth. I prefer the Canada outfit as well - very pretty. Yesterday's outfit isn't my favorite, it looked a bit too plain and masculine on her IMO (I didn't like the color too much for starters) but of course the Queen never looks bad.

I am glad that she took off the gold braid that connected the button when she wore the suit in Oman. I thought the braid made it look a little too much like a costume or that ridiculous suit Sgt Pepper suit that Diana wore so many years ago.

I think because she attended a military event in Oman that her suit reflected the occasion. I'm also glad she removed the braid; it was a little too brass-band look for me as well.

See a pic here
She looks dowdy which I would expect from a woman in her 80's, but I think the gold across the chest makes it look too much like a rejected outfit from Sgt. Pepper.
The color is a little off putting as well, too much like ice cream from Baskin Robbins.

Loved HM's outfit today:
Kate Middleton Pictures - Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Duke Of Edinburgh And Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge Visit Leicester - Zimbio

I am a big fan of how the color combo of pink and black goes together, love this shade of pink, and I think the hat is the best part of the outfit!
Simply stunning!

I have to say that I only like the color of the outfit, since HM looks great in strong jewel tones, but I don't like the style of the coat. The hat would have looked nice with perhaps a black stiff ribbon embellishment rather than the continuation of the buttons. But I cavil over details; HM still looks marvelous.

I agree with the general consensus - love the colour but not the hat. Also, was it just me or did it seem a bit wrinkly?

No, it wasn't just you, EIIR. I thought it looked a bit wrinkly as well... almost as if it was a little big on HM. All in all she did look wonderful.

Her Majesty looks fabulous in the color she chose, of course. Her smile, is, as usual, her best feature.

The Queen wore a gorgeous pink ensemble for the Annual Commonwealth Day Observance Service.
The hat and accessories, especially the brooch, were just beautiful.
