I do not agree with you. When I look at Queen Paola's clothing at Mass for the deceased members of the family, I see clothing that is entirely comparable in color. In gloves, shoes, etc.

OK, I also think the jacket is not the most beautiful one, but that is also a matter of taste. And I think you should also look at the occasion where the clothes are worn.

Paola looks very elegant indeed. It's nice to see her again.

Not a huge fan of this outfit - to me it would be a "stereotypical grandma outfit" but whatever Paola feels comfortable in on this visit, as I can imagine a lot of walking and activities were involved, so you don't want to look too fancy!

The 'walking' seemed to have been undertaken only by the king and his children not that much by Albert en Paola but it seems she is a little unstable. Still you would have hoped that she had been able to find a better fitting outfit knowing that pictures would be released.

I would give Paolo plenty of room in this regard: an informal setting, clearly been isolating and no haridressers around, and frankly at this stage of her life, she probably could just not be bothered.

From the pic it looks like the weather was cloudy. Perhaps it was windy and this was the reason her hair was not perfect styled. Could also be that this was the reason she decided to take on the coat.

Don't think I mentioned anything about Paola's hair

Very smart, albeit not the most summery look.

Thumbs up

Agree.
I have to say that I don't know exactly what the weather was like there in Belgium.
If it was the same as here in the Netherlands. I also looked up a vest and I am a less old lady like Queen Paola.

Bravo , always earrings necklace and brooches...
Perfect hairdo and make up.
For the first time she looks more frail than King Albert II.
As they are never there on 21th of July I suppose they will go to Italy!

The photo in original format. Queen Paola looks like she was about to go shopping, with her bag on her arm. Truthfully it does remind me a bit of Queen Elizabeth.

Thanks! The photo with the bag reminded me of the one taken at the first meeting with Princess Delphine. Bags seem to have become more than a fashion accessory to her.
