Its very nice to see these two distinguished senior statesmen meet for the first time.

What a cool photograph! I love that they hold state visits at Windsor now -- such a historical and wonderful castle.

I so agree! Marvellous picture. HM looks great today, looking forward to see more. :flowers:

I think the fashion winner this morning has to be the Duchess of Cornwall. She looks AMAZING in that purple outfit. Can't wait for the tiaras tonight.

Absolutely agreed, Sam -- I've just blogged about it over at Mad Hattery, and I am so in love with this color on her! She should ditch the pastels and stick with the jewel tones.

Agree Camilla is looking great. What is also interesting is that this suit is not new - it was used last year, I think in Japan, but it is looking wonderful today.

The Duchess of Cornwall looks fantastic! This is absolutely a great color on her. She should wear it more.

Muriel..did she wear the hat as well?

Speaking from memory, no she did not wear the hat. I think the lighting in Japan was quite different and Camilla did not look as good as she does today.

British pomp and pageantry was on full display as the Queen welcomed the Indian president to Britain.
The two heads of state met for the first time in the historic town of Windsor as hundreds of well-wishers looked on.
Pratibha Patil - India's first female president - was greeted by the Monarch and Duke of Edinburgh on a royal dais in the centre of the Berkshire town as a thunderous royal salute was fired nearby by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery.

The Queen looks stunning today in her coat and matching hat! She seems to look younger as the years pass....

I've never seen the DoC in purple, she looks stunning! QEII looked great, too!
Thank you for the amazing pic of the Windsor castle, precious! I'm looking forward to more pictures.

udyusa 10-27-2009 04:30 PM

Very nice indeed! I hardly recognized Pr. Philip as you so rarely see him smile so big. Thank you for the pictures, Nico.
