  2. While I feel I have had enough of florals, I think Princess Anne looks great here--the cream jacket tones down the pattern. it's great to see her featured on this forum. Can we please see her more often? Beatrice's dress looks ill fitting but it may be that the wind caught it as she came down the steps--I like the colour though. Sophie's dress is also a lovely colour and it's good teamed with the navy jacket. (One of my D of E boys was there today and I'm dying to hear how he got on )

    1. Royalty fan

      I agree Anon 10:50, and I will never forget, it was a few years ago, at an Olympic game, that she was in stitches, I have never seen her laughing so much!

  7. Prince Edward looks really sharp and put-together here! If he is his own stylist, I'm in awe -- well done, Sir.

    1. He always looks very sharp, just like his dad. He actually dresses the most like him, more structured. The Prince of Wales, although always sharp, prefers lighter, more open cuts.

  8. It's nice to see Anne smiling. Funny that of of all the Queen's children, she still has a full head of hair!

  9. Sophie's dress is nice, but i really don't like the pairing with the navy jacket, I find it odd.

    1. Yes, I think the proportions here are quite out of whack -- the jacket would look good with a pencil skirt, imo.

  10. I can't say that I love Sophie's dress. The color is depressing, so is the striping and it is too long. It seems whatever she does and wears, she is judged to be wonderful. Well, she may be just that, but her taste is on the not-very-flattering side, in my opinion. Her look needs to be brightened up.
