Re: I love Queen Elizabeth's Style

I would think it has to do with all the tragedies lately in England.

There was another picture posted today of her riding a better-looking horse accompanied by this same man.  It mentioned how hot it was in GB but she was wearing a sweater.

Pearley:  I am English and we all grew up with a great interest in the Royal Family.  We have always known that Prince Charles is very friendly and likes nothing better than to visit and chat with all kinds of people, especially those who have lived and worked on the Royal estates for most of their lives.  Apparently he also loves Scotland and has a number of long-time old folks he visits for a cup of tea and a chat in the outlying villages around Balmoral.  It is unfortunate that he comes across as stuffy and haughty because I think he is a sensitive man who does care a lot about people.  I often think that he is more cut out to live a country life but he does have a great sense of duty towards the UK and I honestly believe he will make a good King. 


Well said Fona!...I am English too!

Re: I love Queen Elizabeth's Style

Queen Elizabeth's mount in the photo on this thread is a Fell Pony, a breed indigenous to nothern England.  It is actually a good mount for her at her age for several reasons.  The Fell is a very docile breed with a good mind and would likely be a very quiet ride.   Also, her leg placement is very good for her.

 

I have always seen her riding with a scarf on her head.  I'd much prefer  seeing her in a safety helmet though!

Re: I love Queen Elizabeth's Style

Oh no, Duchess Kate wore an extremely similar outfit today to last year's.  Could she have recycled and re-engineered?

 

The Queen's outfit looks like lime sherbet.  What a beautiful shade but one I cannot wear.

Re: I love Queen Elizabeth's Style

THe reigning monarch whoever it is does not get to select their successor.  THe order of Succession to the throne is set by British law as passed by Parliment.  I think the law is called the "British Law of Royal Succession" or something like that.
