She didn't attend the evening wedding reception. Instead, she and DofE helicoptered to Windsor.

I loved all the Queen's fashion choices for her trip to Ireland, the bright blue combo, she wore to the brewery, and the dark green ensemble are 2 particularly nice outfits .

Queen Elizabeth visiting the Chelsea Flower Show press and VIP day in London on May 23, 2011,

wearing a lovely dress with a flower pint and a nice matching coat, perfectly chosen for the topic
of the event. I'm not too excited about the hair accessories, but it's quite modern and therefore
good that she tried it out

Love the outfit...
Surprised that she woul go that modern with the headpiece... big mistake, does not suit her at all.
because she nearly always gets it spot on
But those things... oh dear!

Hmm... Not sure if I would call it modern, it reminds me too much of the kind of hairnets my granny and her friends (born around 1920+) would wear BEFORE they would attend church service etc. Not a fan of this outfit by HM.

Modern is a term I used loosely, way too old fashioned is more like it, but it is a more modern stye headpiece than what HM usually wears.

I see your point, roseroyal. I didn't mean to criticize your way of wording.

The Queen has worn this headpiece before even at the same event.

It looks like a small veil you would wear to church.

Here's a close-up of the "headpiece": http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/6528/96193339.jpg

A hairnet with bows. Don't get me wrong, I don't find it that bad. I actually think it's hilarious.

It looks better close up, but still not one of her best looks!

The outfit is lovely, ex trimly fresh, but headpiece is too much dark, IMO :)
