And HM does look very fresh and summery in her peach outfit; looks like a sorbet.

I think they could be classed as precursors. My mother has several and they are displayed under glass domes. I always laugh, but who knows what I'll have under glass domes when I'm 82! LOL

That's got to be the first time HM's been compared to a frozen dessert, Baroness! It works really well, though!

Heh, heh, my fingers were typing too fast - I meant that HM's outfit looked like a sorbet, not her. Don't want to call her the Ice Queen!

I love Her Majesty in soft peach. She looks very lovely. The hat is delightful.

Queen Elizabeth attended an event at the Royal Academy of Arts on May 23, 2012, looking wonderful in a silver-white combination:

With this outfit I wish her jacket had been the length of her dress.

HM is sparkling, literally. I like it when she chooses a neckline that lets us see her pearl necklace properly.

Queen Elizabeth today at a reception to launch the Queen Victoria Journals Online project at Buckingham Palace.
- Full outfit
- Close up

Her Majesty looks lovely, but I must say the print of the dress is too busy for me.

Yuck. The print dress looks like a housecoat.

I'm not liking this print. It's too busy and makes the dress look like something one would put on in the morning after getting out of bed.

Yes, that day dress definitely looks like a housecoat. But I love her glitter evening dress and her small silver bag; if she wore silver shoes this would have looked absolutely stunning.

Seems I'm the only one who likes today's dress. HM so often wears blocks of colour with no discernable pattern, so I like seeing something a bit more interesting on HM.
