    1. Yes agreed,but why isn't there a ton of comments flooding in about Queen Silvia's smart pants suit being topped off by her wearing training shoes ?????? Everybody's busy doing Christmas shopping perhaps????

    3. Lol, deadeggs. It's a matter of comfort over style I suppose and I love Q. Sylvia for it :)
      In any case I think it looks quite OK on her; given all the walking and the heat perhaps? Now I have to dash off to get that Christmas tree!

  3. The Royal couple looks relaxed and dressed fit for the occasion. I like the shoes of the Q. it must not always be heels.

  4. Older ladies dress comfortably and according to environment and weather.
    Younger ladies are mostly for fashion and appearance.

  7. The Queen looks great, this has been wonderful tour. Her pantsuit is a perfect choice. Love the addition of the scarf.

  8. I think it is absolutely right that Queen Silvia wears sports shoes on this occasion. Often I wonder at other personalities when they wear high heels with all vehemence, although it fits neither the occasion nor they can go with it properly.
