THAT Blue Coat at St. George's!

Sunday, June 12, 2011

This morning, with the rain pouring generously from the sky, the Windsors gathered at St. George's Chapel to celebrate Prince Philip's 90th birthday.  Again, we had a repeat from the Duchess, and it was one of my all time favorites!  I know I say that a lot, but this time I mean it!  The cut, the color, I love it all.  Last time she wore this coat -- at Nicholas van Cutsem's wedding-- she paired it with a white fascinator and an ivory frock underneath.  Today, she wore what appears to be the blue Zara dress from the day after her wedding, and a blue fascinator.  The white that she put together last time made for a crisper look, but the Zara dress and hat work very well together today and I love both mixes.

Very excited for the Garter Ceremony tomorrow at Windsor Castle!  Stay tuned...


  1. The original set looked better.
    The pleated Zara dress and jacquard coat though in the same shade of colour are notmatching well for myself

  2. Agreed. The first ensemble was definitely the superior, nice and crisp.
