BBC News - Queen and Duke visit Bermuda to mark anniversary

Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh have arrived in Bermuda on Tuesday to mark the 400th anniversary of its settlement.

Here are some pics of the walkabout yesterday, the Queen
was wearing a very strong colour, the previous pics or the
video didn't show it that much. Pic 3 with Prince Philip is very
nice and on pic 5 she smiles at islanders dressed in period
costumes.

On the BBC news this morning they had a very short clip of HM at a reception (evening?), but it went really fast, and I can't find any photos of the event anywhere...anyone else had any luck finding some? (HM had on a fine black lace jacket over a pale cocktail dress)

Tonight: The Girls of Great Britain tiara, Festoon necklace, and the Queen Mother's earrings. I think this is the first time HM has worn the earrings the Queen Mother wore so frequently.

Thanks so much for the yahoo link bweir

HM looked OK but could have been fabulous with a little shape at the waist of her dress

QueenElizabeth 11-26-2009 02:59 AM

Certainly not the first time that she wore the earrings, they were worn previously at a Garter Day.

HM looked wonderful. Good to see the festoon necklace and QMs earrings out.

Unless HM wore them while the QM was still alive (unlikely) I don't think so.

Earring Roster:

2009 -- Dubai Sapphires
2008 -- Rubies
2007 -- George VI Wedding Gift sapphires
2006 -- Cluster earrings (VERY similar to the Queen Mother's earrings worn in Bermuda, but not quite)
2005 -- Victoria's Diamond studs (I think. Large single diamonds)
2004 -- Queen Victoria's earrings (pear shaped drop)
2003 -- Diamond Earrings with three drops

2002 -- Large pearl button earrings

Whilst ordinarily I would have agreed with your comment, I just don't think it is relevant in the case of an 83 year old lady. I think we can all have differing views on whether we liked her dress or not, but I doubt if many people would disagree that she looked wonderful.
