:lol: No I didn't. I wish she had have asked me my opinion though - who wears a hat and coat to go on holiday? Ok so she's off to that Commonwealth booze up but surely she could have roughed it for the plane to Malta? I love the two outfits but I think it's a little OTT. She's turning into Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Russophile 11-20-2007 05:01 PM

:lol:No, cuz if she were, she'd have slapped them all and flounced away.

Well, two outfits for a trip is actually "roughing it" for The Queen. When she came here to the US, she changed like four times in one day; of course, to be fair, she had that many engagements going on. I dunno.... all I know is that her two outfits for Malta today were both brilliant.

According to the Telegraph, Brenda gave Phil the Royal Victorian Chain last night as an anniversary gift.

Is the Uganda thing a tiara affair?

Prince Philip strolled past the ITN crew in Uganda, presumably during the military inspection, and he asked if the journalist was "finished?" making her burst out laughing........ Classic! :cool:
The pictures are so cool.... He listened in while the reporter was talking about him and The Queen, how classic is that? :biggrin:

The outfits HM has had at both Malta and Uganda so far have been stunning and very elegant and get an A+++ shuch a regal look.

There will be a tiara at Uganda a the garter star for The Queen.
