Ditto. As mentionied earlier, the hat does look a bit Pilgrim-esque.
Other than that , fantastic!

The color is divine on Her Majesty. The hat however, is just an 'eh'. The jewelry is stunning.

HM looks wonderful as always. Beautiful color and I love the fact that she chose to wear white gloves instead of her usual black ones! I also love the detail on her hat..

probably since we have officially passed the first day of spring - HM feels comfortable with white accessories.

That is my favorite of HM's three unidentified ruby brooches. I wonder where they all came from. Family secret, perhaps.

Don't you just love a good jewel mystery? This is a better view of that same brooch from another occasion, but with no attribution. It's really a very unusual design:

It is a lovely brooch albeit a little convoluted...(I do hope that is the correct word)! :)

It might have some significance or meaning because of the convoluted design work.

Hopefully, someone will come forward with the answer to the provenance of this brooch.

Queen Elizabeth visited Valentine's Park Redbridge. She wore a beautiful blue long jacket with a floral dress underneath, teaming it with matching hat, white gloves, her trusted black bag and shoes, and a beautiful brooch.

- The ensemble
- Close up
- The hat and jewellery

She looks lovely! I love this shade of blue and the entire look is just very coordinated and nice-looking.

I love the shade of blue, and the whole look in general. The pockets on the coat are not to my taste, but that's about it. I love her jewelry. As usual, Her Majesty looks fabulous.

Beautiful cornflower blue coat, springlike hat and lovely dress print. My pet peeve is the housedress-like pockets, but otherwise quite a nice appearance. I've never seen HM's brooch before, but as usual am in love with it.

HM looks glorious in her Spring outfit! I too am in love with her brooch, but do not recognize it. Hopefully someone will identify it and fill us in..

I'm with you on those. The only thing I disliked about the look. The color is absolutely beautiful on Her Majesty, and I hope to see it worn more often.

I just don't like these pockets at all on any outfit, whether it's a coat or dress and for me, it just detracts from the overall appearance. But that's just my personal taste.

Oh, they're quite hideous. They don't have a place anywhere but a house-coat.

The Queen great looking as always at a thanksgiving service for the Queen Mother and Princess
Margaret at St George's Chapel on March 30, 2012.

That colour is always great on her and the flower hat is so nice!

Oh yes Iceflower, this shade of cornflower blue is lovely on HM. I do like her hat and the deep pink and cream flowers provide an excellent contrast. Very smart indeed.

Beautiful cornflower blue and I like the slash pockets. The floral colors on that gorgeous springtime hat contrast nicely against the color, and her brooch is just stunning.
