HM looked lovely and very Easter-like today. I like her coat and her hat is nice, but I'm not too sure about the fluffy bit; if it had been a bit smaller then it would've been OK. Overall, HM looked great.

I mean everything HM wears is just stunning the Derby outfit in fact everything of late is beautiful the very slight touches that brings each out together are really touches I admire in her look.

I totally agree with you.
I love her choice of colors, she chooses the best and the most appropriate one.

I'm not sure about those blue flowers hanging off the bottom of the hat. The low-resolution stream I was watching made it look like she'd left some curlers in.

As lovely and beautiful as ever! The blue chiffon flowers of her hat look marvellous in the photos close up and the dress shimmers, which couldn't be detected on the tv.

I will always remember this as the day she had fake blue roses growing out of the side of her head. Admittedly, I have issues with fake blue flowers growing horizontally out of anyone's head.

I love the Queen's coat, it gives a nod to the brocade of the coronation gown. Spot on!

Does anyone know the reasoning behind the choice of suits for the men (rather than morning coats)? Here in the Midwest, we are lucky to get the guys in more than a golf shirt and khakis this time of year, so I am frequently confused by the gent's dress. Sorry for the ignorance.

I may be in the minority, but I love the blue roses. Gorgeous!

Hmm, this is rather tricky but my initial instinct is that the event was classed as an ordinary church service of commemoration rather than a more formal event like a wedding or other ceremonial (even though there was an element of ceremonial with the sacred oil being brought to the alter so I could be wrong).
The coronation anniversary is not usually celebrated in this way unlike the Jubilee (where morning suits were worn by the men at St Paul's Cathedral).

There seems to be blue within the fabric of the coat as well, so the blue flowers are not random which I wondered about to start with. blue and Gold, just like the robes of the clergy.

This isn't one of my favourite looks mainly because of the fit. HMQ seems to have lost weight and this outfit needs re-tailoring.

Just stole the show. What a fabulous outfit, rich and regal, reminding you of her original dress, but modern design. Just love the blue flowers in the hat, very flattering, and the aquamarine finishes it.
