Too much blue going on with the Queen. Nice to see a State Visit from Denmark but what a shame IMO that Mary could not go along as it would've been nice to see her as well. The program me looks packed to me but nice to see father and son have some events together.
I agree - definitely too much blue (it´s even the same shade like for the arrival), too little contrast. Never imaginable when Qu. Elizabeth II goes on a state visit.
Gosh, the Queen is a heavy duty recycler when it comes to clothes. I mean, this is the same outfit she wore to Prince William's wedding and the twins' baptism, all this year.
Does anyone remember Queen Margrethe's last state visit to Britain and on arrival she wore an extraordinary creaton in purple and greys in a pattern not unlike a Jackson Pollock painting? I wish she would recycle that outfit more often, cos it's one of my favourites!
:previous: I've always thought it atrocious, myself...lol. Exceptionally well made, but a train wreck to behold.
However, the feathered widebrim hat worn to Guild Hall was quite sensational. And worn with a lovely mink coat if I recall correctly.

I see Margrethe's pink state visit suit has made the journey to Russia.
At the state banquett the Queen recycled the dress she wore at Princess Nathalie's wedding. No tiara:sad:.

:previous: In light of the country's history, it was perhaps felt that any such display of Danish 'glitter' would have been quite inappropriate for the occasion.
The Queen is afterall a visiting dignitary, and not the one being visited. It's largely a different ball game of sorts and on most state visits abroad, that aren't to another royal Head of State, the Queen of Denmark's use of jewellery is quite modest.

Belga picture gallery
http://foto.rg.ru has a nice picture gallery of the laying ceremony at the Monument to Heroic defenders
Have enjoyed all the pictures so far of HM and the Prince Consort doing a wonderful job. Very sad news about the hockey team which must have rocked the country. I was hoping for more photos from the banquet. I do like the blue gown with white lace top even tho she wore it recently to the Heering wedding.

Its well known that Fred isnt comfortable in media focus and a bad speaker but this is really bad; I cant believe that this issue cant be fixed by or for him.
