  1. The Queen looks wonderful in black! Unfortunately, they associate black with mourning, so she never wears black outside of these solemn, mournful occasions. She should, though, because black suits her tremendously! The Duchess of Cornwall is looking great and so is Princess Alexandra Lady Ogilvy. The three strand pearl necklace Princess Anne is wearing is lovely!
