Personally I think the "and the winner is" hoola should go to QEII's stylist.
Ok, so she murdered the QueenMum to get her position, but all is well that ends well. And I think that QEII has been looking fabulous and incredibly pretty ever since. Long gone are the horrid patterned dresses, the unshapely hats, the hideous colours (that we can still witness on the QueenBee and in parts on Daisy) and out came a butterfly in soft colours (previously reserved for the old bird and the old bird alone) jewels tones, designs both very pretty and very appropriate for QEII's age.
Frankly I would say QEII had been a very pretty young girl and young woman, followed by some dark ages and now she is a very pretty elderly lady again...
Anyway, I know for sure, as the queen of Saba I would have a stylist : I would be bored to death hunting and browsing thru fashion spreads and catalogues, so any help here would be oh, so welcome.
QEII has a dresser as well, sounds ridiculous considering that most of us manage to do that all by ourselves since we were about three (with more or less success of course) but that dresser makes sure that she hasn't worn a particular outfit within the same month twice (hear, Maxima?) won't repeat an outfit to a similar or same event (That's for you Mary!) and also makes sure QEII doesn't have to hunt for matching accessories but has the perfect hat, shoe and purse all lined up for it.. The coat that has been chosen to go with the outfit is also perfect in lenght (and either fitted or subsituted).
And of course decent and subtle information are used to ensure that the host doesn't wear a clashing colour (or the same
) and that the flowers are a perfect fit...
