Not my favourite of the Queen's hats, although those aquamarine clips are just to die for.

Baroness of Books 04-27-2012 10:53 AM

Yes, she certainly has a lot of buttons on that outfit, but I do like the hat and material. And those clips are beautiful; I love brooch sets.

Artemisia 04-27-2012 11:05 AM

I like the delicate coat with matching dress, and the hat isn't bad either.
As a bonus, the wears my favourite brooches - aquamarine Cartier clip brooches.

She always manages to look fabulous but I must wonder - does she only have one pair of shoes?

EIIR 04-27-2012 01:27 PM

I'm sure she has several pairs, but that style is what she almost always wears. I think at 86 you've pretty much earned the right to wear comfy shoes, and I'll bet that's why HM wears them.

She does have black shoes without the buckle.

And party shoes.

And special occasion shoes.

And boots.

Really sensible shoes.

Good old wellies.

Or no shoes at all.

LOL, of course she has, and she is out meeting people, traveling, and standing about rather more often than your average 86 year old

here, here! 86 yrs old, she has earned the right to wear whatever she feels comfortable and secure in. I was actually worried about her on the Royal Barge when it had been raining - I kept thinking she is going to slip - she should have been in her wellies?

def got a chuckle at the "no shoes at all"

Grandduchess24 04-27-2012 09:12 PM

HM looks nice as always. She really can look good in bright happy colors and matching hats.

IloveCP 04-27-2012 09:17 PM

She looks elegant in that outfit!

Daria_S 04-27-2012 10:15 PM

I love the light blue shade of the hat. It looks lovely on Her Majesty. EIIR, thank you for posting pictures of the different shoes Her Majesty owns. She certainly does own a pair for every occasion :biggrin:. The Cartier clips are simply divine. Overall, elegant and regal, as usual.

The Queen in Windsor today, April 30, "pretty in pink" as some news agencies stated :smile:

Wales:
Nice. Lovely shade of blue on the hat. Love when the flowers match the outfit.

Windsor:
Pink? I must be colorblind. The flowers are pink, the outfit is not IMO.
Very nice anyway. Especially the hat.

dbarn67 04-30-2012 01:14 PM

Not one her best, though I do like purple. The one seems to a be a combo or purple and mauve that looks kind of dull IMO.

I love the shade of blue for the 2nd day in Wales and the hat was just cool!

Artemisia 04-30-2012 02:52 PM

I do love this look; lilac definitely suits the Queen.
The hat is a bit quirky but pretty; definitely better than the bowler-style hats she has worn lately.

Daria_S 04-30-2012 04:17 PM

I love the pink coat, and the darker almost maroon hat. The two colors look great together.

QueenElizabeth 04-30-2012 04:24 PM

I think Her Majesty The Queen has been looking into her "older" wardrobe for the past days. The two outfits in Wales were worn for the first time 2007 (Diamond Wedding anniversary) and the other for a Commonwealth Observance some years ago. The light green hat and coat which we saw for the Scouts Parade and on her actual birthday at the races was seen in the Golden Jubilee ten years ago. Today in Windsor, I think she first wore the coat when opening the St Pancras station for Eurostar in 2007. But nice as always!

EIIR 04-30-2012 04:38 PM

I bet the Queen is keeping several new outfits for this summer, since she has one or two special occasions to dress for. ;)
