FWIW, Princess Beatrice's hat sold for over $130,000 (US) ... will be split between two charities:

It is rather minimalist, but sweet in an odd kind of way. Reminds me of the bows on Audrey Hepburn's "bateau" neckline dress in "Sabrina".

It's what "ladies of a certain age" wore in the 1960's'; when they wanted their heads "covered" without wearing a hat!

My mother had similar "hats" Mostly worn to church back when woman couldn't go into a Catholic church bare headed.

Wow...After all of the great outifts HM has worn lately, that's just...Odd.

On a different note...When is the State Dinner for the Obamas? I'm expecting at the least The Princess Royal, Duchess of Cornwall and Countess of Wessex attending and wearing various pieces of bling.

JewelGods willing, for Sophie it will be her Aquamarine Tiara that appeared on the scene a couple of years ago and can also be converted into a necklace. It's far more flattering to her than her Wedding Tiara is. If she and Edward attend that is and I can't see them not.

The real question is this : Will this be the first time we see The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at a big time Royal Event? Outside of their Wedding of course. I'm guessing it depends on William's schedule and as they just got back from their Honeymoon, it wouldn't surprise to not see them there, but all the same....It would be nice. :)

Ok, I see that (http://www.nt2099.com/J-ENT/classic-hollywood/sabrina.jpg). :)

But I'm also reminded of something like this (http://cdn03.okcdn.okmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/44_Aguilera_Christina_may7a.jpg). ;)

But, hey, much like her feathered headgear at Edward & Sophie's wedding, the netting is rather snazzy and envelope-pushing for an 85yo Head of State. :respec:

Looking forward to seeing what Michelle wears tomorrow night at the State Dinner :watch: And I think I will *plotz* if the Cambridge's were there!

Guess I haven't been paying much attention all my life. I always thanked Queen Victoria for the holiday. Never even gave a thought to Queen Elizabeth today.

My sister is in Toronto this week on business, I told her to grab anything she finds with HMQ, the Cambridges, etc. and bring it on home! ;)

Among the various Royal Family members who came along w/HM was Princess Beatrice and just as she's done the last two and a half weeks...It's hard to believe that well put together young lady was the same one who showed up at William and Catherine's Wedding looking as she did. First I've ever seen her wearing her hair that way and it really suits her.

WOW the queen looks fabulous and Camilla that is the best photo I have ever seen of her. She usually is not very photogenic at all but
she looks quite spiffy in this photo. Flowers tend to bring out the best in folks.

Thanks for sharing.
