    The queen looks nice. Camilla's hat looks like a cake.

    If I could be one of them for one day, I'd be Anne: every other lady has to walk around with pastel coloured dresses and frilly hats, while Anna gets to wear her uniform and ride in the parade, which seems really cool to me.

    Camilla really pulls off huge jewelry, I like that about her. It's not everyone who can wear the crowns and necklaces that she does. I'm not too sure about Kate's brooch.

    I'm digging the queen's brooch collection.

    Camilla looks really good here. She's pulling off the pink and even that oversized hat.

    i love eugenie's hat/fascinator/flying saucer.
    kate looks slightly less boring than usual.
    queen camilla looks regal even though i despise chokers. this isn't her best hat though.
    the queen looks smashing. that's a great lipstick colour on her.

    Eugenie always looks so scruffy and dorky but this hat is slightly better than her usual dress up box efforts. Use a hairbrush sometimes.
    Sophie Wessex is quietly elegant as usual.
    Camilla - wow!
    HMQ's outfit doesn't quite work, maybe the navy blue isn't dark enough?
    Kate - love the lapel/neckline but I wish she'd wear bigger hats. Those airline stewardess things she favours are very twee and boring. And lose the fucking clutch bags/snatch protectors.

    Does HMQ use a makeup artist/stylist? If not, and she does her own, it always looks wonderful. It's very minimalist (as it has been for decades) and always looks so fresh and pretty. I love her!
    Harry and Camilla look very good, as does Catherine. Actually, they all look great.

    i think that photo is making me rethink my original opinion on her hat. it's actually pretty fab.

    She's been looking better and better recently. Probably some good (subtle) PS but also I think she's gaining confidence about her role as our future queen after years of hatred and abuse from the Ditards and a generally hostile media. She's always given good hat. And we must never underestimate the gift she's given the monarchy and country by making her husband and future king happy and contented at last.

    Is that Lady Helen Taylor? I haven't seen a picture of her in ages. I always thought she was so pretty when I was a kid, she's still lovely. She'd be close to Diana's age, around 50 I guess?
    I love what Camilla's wearing, especially the hat, she's looked great lately.
