fox news is the worst place to get your news, avoid it like the plague, even if you agree with their biases it's just a bad source of news because they dont get their facts right. just a little research would have revealed the queen's passion for horses.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth's dress sense has been criticised by a New York journalist during her recent state visit to the US. New York Post columnist Cindy Adams launched a scathing attack on the 81-year-old monarch's choice of attire for her week-long tour.

Adams wrote: 'Forget the hats, shoes, hairdo, wardrobe, armpit-length gloves and schlepping that stupid, black, long-strap, hanging handbag that must have her bus tokens, mad money, cellphone and keys to the kingdom, and we won't even discuss the bad bra.

Another terrible place to get your news. I just dont understand why people read it, they give it out for free by my job---i never take it--its worse than a tabloid-- the article itself is really ridiculous and not reflective of the press coverage of the trip or how people felt about it--most people either saw it with some interest or didnt really care very much, others of us were thrilled to have HM in the same time zone. The trip was a huge success for HM because ppl turned out to see her everywhere and she's to be honest an 81yr old lady without the glamour associated to the young celebs we are obsessed with and yet look thousands of ppl turned out to see her, the derby had one of its highest attendance in history because of HM, and there was loads of press coverage. there was a flurry of articles on her life, royal etiquette, and her clothes. and 99% of it was respectful. I cant think of any other head of state or politician visiting the united states who would receive such a reception in this country.

The whole article is nasty sounding and quite disrespectful. I really feel most of today's fashion is really quite depressing looking IMO. The whole urban, sloppy, ripped and unkept look to me should have been the article topic for this journalist and not the Queen's clothing which was very regal and flattering. Even though some of us wouldn't want to wear the constant hats and gloves, she does. Her may feel her arms may not be very attractive to look at, because of her age, and doesn't want to criticizm that she gets with the fashion she wears now.

Her current wardrobe is also very distinctive in a crowd of grey suits, as I found out at Jamestown. A 5'4" turquoise hat is still always more visible than a 6'4" suit.

Well a simple NY journalist CAN criticize but it would be worthwhile for sasid journalist to note that Elizabeth II has dressed in the same style for years - back to when she first visited the White House in 1976.

Cindy Adams is a good reporter and has been around for decades but where has she been all these years if she doesn't know the Queen's inimitable style?

Another example of sloppy reporting.

Elspeth 05-16-2007 12:10 AM

I wonder how he thinks an 81-year-old lady should be dressing anyway.

New pics of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip visit Lord's Cricket Ground to watch The England Vs West Indies..

The Socialist Monarchist ;) agrees completely. Fox News = :censored:
The newcasters are either downright devilish :devil: or on their best days :shifty:
I try to watch the other viewpoints on occasion but Fox News makes my stomach do nasty things....:yuk: It's too much to bear.

I agree with you.Commoners do not understand royal lifestyle and fashion.

Some commoners study these matters and understand them quite well. "Commoners" encompasses a large demographic and it is not fair to say that all "commoners" understand something and do not understand something else. That is just rude and over-generalizing. Mind you, I am rude sometimes too but I would never say something like that. I am a commoner, but I think I am a very educated and thinking commoner, and I would certainly never express a disrespectful or close-minded thing about Her Majesty.

I was referring to the journalist and not about Her Majesty.I was referring to a commoner and not to a upper class person.

I actually saw a byline on Fox news that said "He shooted him." instead of "He shot him.". I don't know where they get their copy editors from!

Um..I thought this was about HM's trip to the U.S. and not about the U.S. news stations?

Am I wrong about that? ;-)

You don't have to be an upper class person to be knowledgeable about the monarchy. However, it's fairly clear that some US journalists simply think the Queen is a figure of fun and a worthless anachronism, and they're not shy about saying so. We had the same problem when I lived in California and the Queen visited the area, and at least one local radio station was full of reporters taking cheap shots at her. I suppose it's a case of playing to their markets.

No, but most people's experience of the visit came via the news stations, so it's a relevant part of the discussion.

Video of past presidential visits
 
I though you might enjoy this.

What a charming video....thankyou Paco for sharing it!

It really does make one feel such a deep sense of what the word continuity really means and to think there are now only five US Presidents including Obama alive today! History before our eyes!

Beautiful video, I adored president Bush's little mistake. I hope she visits Barack Obama soon. :flowers:

Ok, so, when the respect and belief in the church and awe of history and being an immediate part of the big picture no matter how small, simply by having knowledge about how it all effects one another through beliefs, origins, how it led to laws and modern day and all, no matter how modern day no matter how every day norm, the monarchy still has that majestic appeal. They visited The States some time ago and little to do was made, I don't remember them being in The States. I was nowhere near either state and don't derby, so, I really didn't miss anything, thankfully. She was most likely still best dressed. Did she do any window shopping? Me, lol, I am like the peasant you find squabbling a buzzard over a chicken bone that finally got tame enough to be taken home to someone's mom to get married off.
