Love that outfit.... I love pink and black together, I love that shade of pink, and the outfit looks wonderful on H.M. Love the belt too - nice touch!

Ms Roberts needs to grow up, the Observer needs to rediscover it`s former impeccible standards of journalism, whilst those leaving comments after the article, need to find themselves worthwhile lives.

Is Somerset House where all the vital statistics were housed?

Somerset House no longer holds public records such as wills and birth certificates, most of those records were moved to either the National Archives or the Departments dealing with such paperworks.

Is Somerset House not most well known at this stage for its ice rink in winter?

Not my favourite of HM's hats today.

Ooooh, I like her hat today! It's flirty, and it makes her look 15 years younger.

That's a fun hat . Never seen it before. Her Majesty looks lovely in it. Her smile is the best accessory though.

At first, I thought a pheasant ran into HM's hat. I guess it's quirky enough to add a bit of frivolity to her appearance, but I'm not too crazy about it. But she's wearing one of her marvelous bow brooches; always a pleasure to gaze on yet another lovely piece from her collection. I think she looks gorgeous in the last photo of the gallery, though.

I'm more used to seeing Her Majesty in more classic style hats, so this one was initially a bit of disappointing. It does, however, look a lot better when you see the whole picture.

The Queen looks very happy in the pictures.

Not a fan of the hat. Agree about the smile.

I think she looks lovely. The whole outfit is beautiful. The hat is really nice, a little different than what she usually wears but nice. I like it that she stepped out of the box.

Her Majesty unveils the first Jubilee Greenway Walkway Plaque in front of Buckingham Palace. Article and Video courtesy of 'The Telegraph'. Her Majesty looks fabulous, as usual.

The Queen`s Speech.

I dont like the idea of having a " fixed term " Queen`s speech, every May. Watching the spectacular procession to Westminster was always a highlight, on a cold and ocassionally wet Autumn morning. The weather is of course not a consideration, in moving the ceremony to Spring, but i for one will miss the glimpse of red and gold, on a dreary November day.

I agree with you James. Just another instance of the constitutional vandalism of mindless politicians!

Two months after heart op, Iron Duke's cracking the whip again! Prince Philip takes the reins as he goes carriage driving

So nice to see the Duke out and about, especially the recent health scare.
