I can confirm that story to be true. In my old position at work one of our clients was a high-end shirt maker who count many of the British royals as customers. One of their top executives confirmed to me that all the royal family, particularly Prince Charles, send their shirts back to be mended, rather than buy new ones.

I realize the chances of this are close to nil but I think a smaller handbag would have looked better. But dress and coat were lovely.

Good to see the coral brooch. Can't remember the last time HM wore it. I also really like the texture of the fabric.

Queen Elizabeth in Bromley today, May 15, wearing a great coat, but I'm not sure about the hat, the material is quite unusual:

The coat and the blue dress are lovely.
The hat is... unusual.

Interesting hat; the outfit is nice but the coat is almost exactly like the ones she's worn for the last few apprearances.

I do love this shade of blue as well as the texture of the fabric used for the coat. Not certain if the hat "works' with this particular outfit though. HM still looks absolutely lovely though.

Love the coat, love the very clever hat of ribbons. I like texture. She is lovely.

I'm not crazy about HM's ribbon hat and the style/color of the coat leaves a flat impression with me, but she looks great as always. And her brooch is stunning.

I definitely agree with you on this one. What really drew my eye was how nicely the ribbons on the hat complimented the brooch she was wearing.

HM looks as majestic and wonderful as ever! I love the fact that this year she is wearing more diamond-like tones.

The hat is little unusual, but all outfits is great and Queen looks beautiful as always

I think Her Majesty looks great, as usual. I like the light blue shade of the dress underneath the coat, and the light blue ribbon on the hat that matches it. Not too crazy about the hat itself, but she pulls it off very well.

The fabric and color of the coat are really very nice, and the dress compliments it very well. I love the brooch. As for the hat...I will just say it looks better from a distance...and up close I think of Mabel's wedding dress!
