A better blend of solid and print. The hat is lovely as well and the clips are beautiful. I'd like to see them worn as one brooch for a change.

This is a lovely combination. I think this is a better look because the colors are more muted.

Such a lovely shade of light blue and I am loving the hat too.

Totally lovely. The "Glum Queen" expressions still make me chuckle after all of these years.

Yes, that is a steely-eyed expression if ever I saw one; now I know where Princess Anne gets it from! It is a lovely color and pretty detail on the outfit - a nod to the Wedgwood china pattern, I guess - although it's a bit too much around the waist for me. I'm not too crazy about the upturned brim of the hat, either, although she's wearing another of her beautiful flower brooches.

As someone mentioned on another thread...the detail on her hat looks like her fav tiara ... Girls of GB and Ireland .... A lovely nod.

HM looked lovely in that Wedgewood blue. I like the colour so much that I've painted my bedroom with it.

The Queen is also wearing her shamrock brooch, which is entirely appropriate today.

Her Majesty looks amazing.
I love the suit and the hat is just gorgeous; love the "tiara" detailing. Very appropriate brooch too.

Is it just me or does the detail on HM's hat and coat look like tiny little shamrocks?

I thought they looked like snowflakes.

She looks adorable. The only time you know you will see her smile is A Fly Over. They always make her smile. And the people she is smiling at are 1500 ft in the air going 200 mph.

This wedgewood blue outfit is very lovely and is beautifully made, quite a contrast to the Ascot outfit which looked like it had been done by someone in a home economics class. This is beautifully tailored and I love the hat as well. She looks very lovely.

Her Majesty looked very somber and serious on this occasion. I love the shade of blue, but don't care for the pattern around the waist of the coat. It's bit of an overkill for me. The detailing on the hat is lovely, and the shamrock brooch is very appropriate, given where she is at the moment.

Her Majesty looks so good. Her dress over these last few years has gotten better and better. I love that colour on her and the hat shows a sense of humour I think. Love the white contrast...just lovely.
