Trooping of the Colour 2012

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Kate's second Trooping of the Colour was yesterday and she wore grey Erdem.  Erdem was a hot label for her last summer when she took several pieces with her to Canada where they both met with stunning success.  I didn't love her outfit from last year's Trooping when I first saw it, but it has since grown on me and I am now really a fan.  The embroidery on this outfit threw me for a while, and I personally would not have chosen it.  I know, we have a had a string of outfits I haven't loved, but overall, I do think this was a good ensemble.

The soft grey looks so great on Kate and the boat neck works really well, too.  The hat is perfect with the dress, and her hair is down but not overwhelmingly everywhere, as sometimes happens.  She looks good.

Unlike the Jubilee weekend, the extended family joined the Queen on the balcony for the flyover. The Duke was healthy and accounted for and from the pictures seemed to be in top form.  I wonder what he was finding so much humor in...

As usual with Trooping, I wish we had more full length pictures, but...  If you missed the excitement, watch some of the day below:

The Queen recycled today from a pretty important event.  Anyone remember where we have seen her dressed like this before?
Kate was camping today, so that is up next...
