The Queen looks wonderful.    Camilla does too (even though it pains me to say it).

Zara Phillips looks as though her fuschia  helicopter is going to begin spinning its propellers for take off at any moment.  That hat would be better displayed at Ascot.  She may think it screams "Look at me.  Look at me." but what it really says is, "Shoot me.  Shoot me."

The York girls:  What is it with them and black stockings??  Do they purchase them by the thousands from some nun supply discount house?  And of course Beatrice is wearing another outfit that works against her figure rather than with it.  One thing about her is that she never fails to live up to the low expectations so many have for her.

$ophie We$$ex didn't look quite right in her clothes.  It's not a bad style, but it doesn't seem her style.

William's beard is not flattering.  It does seem though as he's thinning on top.  Possibly he reckons if he cannot grow it in one place he ought to grow it in another.

I was about to ask who the bloke with the beard was. A beard (or that beard) doesn't really suit him, I suspect that the hair on the top of his head will last slightly longer.

Leuchtenberg,

Black tights are IN! IN! IN!  IMHO, I think the York girls look very appropriate for Church  services.  They are not as badly dressed  as they usually are.

There is nothing wrong with black stockings, but those two seem obsessed with them.    I realize I am always picking at B and E.   When I look at the Gloucester girls, I smile.  When I look at the York progeny, I laugh and only do so to keep from throwing up.

I cannot accurately assess what is appropriate for Church and what is not.  I have several family members who think showing up in  a wife beater shirt is appropriate.  So, in my view, anything is better than that.   ;D

I think the Queen, Camilla and Sophie look nice. 

I have to laugh at Zara Phillips, she thinks she's so hot!  As to the York princesses - yes, please go shopping for some new black tights.  They are fashionable but the denier is too thick to be flattering and Beatrice's hemline is too short, in my opinion.  And what's that white thing hanging down under Eugenie's coat?

LOL TB.  One of the best examples I've seen of "damning w/ faint praise".
