A Stroll in the Garden

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip shelter from the rain as they arrive at the Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace last Tuesday.

What a great shot. A day in the life.

I really love how Her Majesty is always impeccably turned out. Note the perfectly matching umbrellas — turquoise-trimmed for her, black-like-my-suit for him. His top hat is a bit raucous.

In addition to being Ruler of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth, former Empress of India, and Defender of the Faith, Elizabeth II is also the Queen of Sensible Shoes.

Speaking of raucous headgear, who knew Prince Philip actually wore one of these?
