Didn't Queen Elizabeth wear white to Charles and Camillia's wedding?. To the blessing?

Queen EII definitely wore white at C&C's blessing, and not blue-ish white like Mary did at J&M's wedding.

But the QM would be more likely to have gone without knickers than her frilly hats!!!!.... TBH don't think she had a lot of hair (rather thin) and would have hated it being seen

The queen mum, but still would you have been the one to volunteer to inform her she couldn't wear a hat? Not sure I'd have. I think when you are in your nineties, if you want to wear a hat to the wedding, you wear a hat. I don't recall seeing her in photos without one, at least very often.

Re QEII in white at Charles and Camilla's wedding: this is a different situation from the others because it was Camilla's second marriage and therefore the bride did not wear white. Traditional wedding customs and etiquette apply only to a bride's first wedding, the "white wedding"; subsequent weddings of the same bride are free-for-alls.

It's also not white but a white and yellow check.

Ella Kay over at Mad Hattery covers the "color controversy" here:

The Prince of Wales's Wedding: HM The Queen
Portsmouth D-Day Museum: HM The Queen

You can see it better at the Portsmouth D-Day Museum.  Sorry it took me a while to post the links.
