Tossing up here [appropriate term?] whether to bring this post over to OoL – after all, we’re always seriously political with no break, no?
A look at the big board shows no posts scheduled so why not spoil your breakfasts with this below?
Not a bad dress actually, boy dun well, as distinct from the dowager motif behind. Pippa herself provided sufficient colour, as Meghan will, as a contrast to the white. Lace is nice.
Now Kate. It’s one thing to dress plainly for sis but Kate’s shade and that dress are far too close. And I mean – nothing around the neck at all? Alexander the Queen I should have thought would do better than that.
The tots were dressed well though. Looking below, um … [cough] … are they actually two boys? Just asking. I was a little cherub too as a child but there was never any ambiguity though about slugs and snails and puppy dogs’ tails.
By the way, Kate’s dress is a bit creased and as this is just before the event [see the minister], well …
High rolling cars as you’d expect – especially behind:
Roger with one of his bodyguards I think. Solid lass, Slovak I believe, reminds me of Nigel Farage’s [ex] wife:
Below – the English approach to pattern and colour. At least he had the sense to leave the lowest button undone. Now, how many separate shades are there on him? I count eight, including in the tie, with the shirt colour reprised as one of the colours in the trousers.
Really have to admire the English nose thumbing at sartorial conventions, not unlike a map maker saying what the hell and slapping in more than four. What our chappy has failed to do though is lay vertical stripes on hoops, checks and dots – that would have really shown ’em, eh?
Now the lady … at least her bag matches his shirt and I just adore her ‘I wear the trousers at our place, don’t mess with me, tally-ho, Honoria Glossop’ forthrightness, minus the Sloane, with his matching hang dog hubby look and if you observe closely – whose hand is in whose? Wonder how much he contributes to the joint coffers:
Brilliant idea here – combining bedwear and formal with that garish Scottish motif, the show of shirtcuff though is admirable and the lasses’s nylon-less legs would have provided the males with hours of pleasure:
The Capra aegagrus effect [the diaphonous goat look] below, plus perfect choppers:
One sharp-eyed chap noticed this behind Hal – there all along and they put one over the paparazzi?
Some nice foliage about for the sisters:
What was good was the way they nearly all held hands and robustly too, as if they meant it, except for the exhibitionist women waving to the crowd, acting centre of attention [poor partners].
Whether that was Pippa-directed or not, it was a nice gesture of oneness and a slap in the face for Red Tessa’s new anti upper middle politics.
