I adore the Queen! She has looked outstanding. I don't think she could look bad if she tried and that smile is just the icing on the cake.

I'm on the fence about Her Majesty's outfit at the Opening Ceremony (though the brooch was absolutely lovely), but I certainly love her attire today. She's in a strong shade of blue, and her smile is absolutely infectious. Very well done.

I too was confused by the peach..... I expected a strong red, white or blue..... But today the more I have seen the colors of the Olympics they seem to be purple and orange, the colors of the badge lanyards and signage around London. So the peach made more sense. But imagine how hard it was to choose her outfit in March for what she was going to wear 4 months later.

Well done your majesty... And you pulled put the good diamonds...lots of bling before they go on display. It is her diamond jubilee after all.

Normally HM looks good in peach, but this wasn't one of her better outfits both in style and color. She also looked extremely tired as well, quite understandably. But, oh, that brooch; simply amazing and a first-time viewing for me. She looked much better in her blue today.

I love that blue coat! Especially that stunning Prince Albert brooch! Not sure about the hat though.

That brooch is a stunner! And the hat is quite likeable close up. The smile is spectacular! She looks rested and ready to go!

I love the shade of blue that Her Majesty chose to wear. It's a strong color that works very, very well for her. I'm not sure about the hat; I give props to the hat-maker for originality, but that's about it. From the distance, it looked like it was splatter painted. The brooch speaks for itself. It's stunning in its' simplicity.

Absolutely correct, she looks rested and ready to begin her vacation. A+ on the outfit and brooch. Um, the hat looks like someone glued a blue doily on to it.

I think her hat matches her dress... if you look at the close up views, it looks as if there is more cotton lace peeking through on the white dress. wonder how busy that makes the dress.

love the color on her - and always loved the albert brooch. she is at a loss without all of her diamonds still on display at BP.

Not sure what you mean by your comments about the Queen "at a loss without all of her diamonds still on display at BP". IMO, a relatively small proportion of the brooches that HM uses regularly are on display. HM typically uses a wide variety of brooches, and only some of them are only in diamonds. Of those, a relatively small number are at the exhibition.

I'm not fond of this hat, but the blue coat with the dazzling jewels looks nice!

Queen Wears Hoodie!

Queen Elizabeth II Wears A Hoodie While Driving A Range Rover (PHOTO)

According to this amusing article, HM has been spotted wearing a hoodie while driving a Range Rover in Scotland. Opinions may differ as to whether it's actually a hoodie.

I think it's one of her head kerchiefs. She has a great deal of them. This particular one may look like a hoodie, because it's a bit loose.

I agree, Daria. If it were a hoodie she would not need bobby pins to secure it! Leave it to HM to come up with another fashion "statement"... lol

Forgive me, but this looks like a covering for a sofa. Not liking the wardrobe choice at all.

Glad I'm not the only one who dislikes the outfit. It reminds of the curtains that hang in the dining room of our old house, down to the blue flowers ornament.
Even the gorgeous clips are lost in the midst of all the leafs and flowers and shine.
