Not my favorite look for HM.

Not my dress favourite either BUT she is wearing Prince Albert Brooch (which is one of my all-time favourites), so all is forgiven.

You took the words right out of my mouth, Artemisia. The dress has pretty colors, but not a great pattern. But I'd wear that dress every day (well, almost) if I owned that brooch, lol! And did she get a haircut, or are my eyes deceiving me?

This is not my favorite look either. The flowers make the dress look extremely informal (almost like a housecoat). I do love the jewelry, however.

Lovely colors but I don't care for the pattern. The brooch is gorgeous but it almost gets lost.. I said Almost!
It certainly looks to me like HM got her hair cut. It seems to be quite shorter.

The colours and pattern had to be bold so HM would stand out against the red of the background. It's a lovely summery piece.

Artemesia - sometimes I imagine myself and all of us here on the forum at her age. I wonder what patterns we will be wearing? Ok, I will look silly in a tragic leopard spot!
I say let her wear what she likes. She has led a life devoted to the UK, she should be able to wear the odd awful print and still get our smiles.

The only thing I like here is her brooch. The print is terrible.

Absolutely true.
I guess I'm just used to seeing a faultless ensemble on Her Majesty, so anything less than perfect is just "OK".

Her Majesty's joins Prime Minister David Cameron for lunch at 10 Downing Street today.

Turquoise and white is nice, though not my favorite.

The white of the jacket looks somewhat weird against the general blue of the dress and the hat. But, like yesterday, she's wearing another of my favourite brooches (Cambridge Pearl Pendant Brooch), so she could have worn one of Martha Louise's or Laurentien's more outrageous outfits - and I wouldn't care.

After the last two days' outfits, let's hope she saving some great red, blue, white for the weeks of the games!

Really dislike the blue print of the outfit. Not a great combination with the white.

I don't care for the hat with her outfit. It looks out of place, somehow... like it was an after thought.

Yep - this is an unusually frumpy look for her Maj. The frock and hat are from Canada 2010, and it wasn't great then. And in full length shots - that hem is so wonky - an unusual miss from Angela Kelly (this cannot be Stewart Parvin, his tailoring is always spot on!)

I noticed the hem on her skirt was hanging in the front but I thought it was just My eyes! I am happy that someone else noticed that it was off. Well, not happy, but at least I know I am not the wonky one. :)

Thank you, James! Perhaps we should let Angela know to put that outfit aside for a good long time before even considering putting it on HM again...

This is definitely an outfit of HM's where her sunny smile had to work a tad bit overtime to deflect from the outfit. Usually I find her attire in impeccable taste but this one definitely lacks something.
