Actually don't know how I personally think about fabric but style and cut of outfit very nice on Queen. I believe she is following the new course for the "woman over 70" which designers are saying to eliminate most plain cloths and "brighten" outfit with larger and bolder colors in cloth to enhance an older skin and detract from wrinkles. Seems everyone at fashion shows recently were spouting the same retort in exactly the same sentence. Must have been given the same memo to recite. Actually since I am well over that age I could care less what a 20 or 30 year old tells me what I should buy. But, I am not in public eye and I am sure that the Queen takes advise from her dresser on what is new and will try to take her/his advise.

Sofia looks great. Love the colours on her. I like how they're bright without being overly summery.

I've always thought that Queen Sofia's Easter egg necklace was her own invention but after seeing this post on the Danish Royal Instagram I suspect that it's of Russian origin.
The post says: "Every year at Easter in the end of the 19th century the female members of the Russian Imperial family received small and large Easter eggs made by the Russian jeweller Carl Peter Faberge. It became a custom to gather the small eggs on a chain to wear them as a necklace or hang them on the wall or in a cabinet for decoration."

I like Sofia's outfit - it's nothing particularly special but it manages to look good on her. I think her egg necklace is really interesting. A fun piece of jewellery.

I don’t know, but Faberge descendants are producing them today and you too can have them, if you have the money.

Not a fan of Sofia's second jacket, it looks a bit like a big storage bag. The outfits are fine for a hospital visit though.
