The extended family of duchesses and princesses look, on the whole very chic. Notable among them is the Duchess of Kent who looks divine in pink, possibly by Bellville Sassoon, a favourite of hers. But at least five of them have decided to sport navy, which makes it look a little like it was colour themed.
Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, who can always be relied on to look overdressed and trussed up, do not disappoint. They could do with adopting the maxim “less is more”…
The Queen looks perfect in lemon, in another hat by Rachel Trevor Jones and a simply cut coat by Angela Kelly.
The Duchess of Cornwall looks perfect in champagne and duck-egg blue in a stunning outfit with box pleats and a very easy cut, by Anna Valentine, who seems to get it absolutely right every time. The gorgeous hat is by Philip Treacy, again, utterly reliable for the big occasion.
