A sad start to a new thread, but I hope we can celebrate the legacy of Elizabeth Regina, what a woman, and what style!

I am on holiday so missed the procession. Still, I can't complain!

A few photos from today. Quite difficult to find anything to say about the outfits - as well as being moved by the solemnity of the occasion, black is also a bit tricky to see in photos!

Everyone looking pretty great though, in my opinion. The women's outfits might have been co-ordinated a bit?

Everyone looks very dignified. Lots of nice hats / hatbands. Kate maybe went an bit heavy on the blusher.

Everyone looking very smart and appropriate today. I liked Kate's brooch. Some more info on it here.

Thank you @Maireas for the new thread. Flowers
Camilla's brooch was a gift from her father apparently. It's very long in length for a brooch - unusual, but not to my taste.
Kate's brooch is BIG.
I wasn't keen on Sophie's dress - there was too much going on. I prefer a simpler, pared back style.

Kate looks really tired (unsurprisingly!) so maybe that’s why she’d slapped the blusher on a bit hard, if she was feeling a bit washed out.

I'm sure it looks nice close up, but on some pictures it did look a bit like she was taking a stick insect out for the day.

No Zara, Beatrice or Eugenie in that lineup?

Hello all!
I think everyone looked very appropriate today.
I particularly liked Camilla's lovely hat and Kate always looks fabulous and elegant wearing a veil. I love her brooch.

Zara, Beatrice and Eugenie were to the side of the hall, with the rest of the Royal Family.

Thanks for the new thread @Maireas. I think I was dreaming black outfits last night unless one of you can confirm Camilla had a very boxy black cape on and another lady, not sure who had a black shift with a visible silver zip at the back.

Yes, I noticed Camilla's dress yesterday with the cape detail, I thought it looked very chic.
I hope she's got comfy shoes on today.

Yes, thank you very much for the thread @Maireas. A fitting title for a lovely lady. A monarch, but also just an ordinary woman like you or I whose family meant the world to her and all of whom are suffering now.

@Maireas i think she did have good shoes on - they looked suitably chunky to afford some support and be comfortable enough to wear for some time (although I didn’t look all that closely).

I also thought the Queen Consort’s brooch looked like a stick insect! It’s definitely a striking piece.
