This morning the Queen, who is now feeling much better from her recent illness, visited the London underground as part of its 150th birthday celebrations. H. M. and the Duke of Edinburgh, accompanied by Kate Middleton, were given a tour of the Baker Street tube station.

The Queen’s coat was the real show-stopper for me. The cool beige colour set off by a chocolate-brown brocade gave the impression of a leopard print trim from a distance. A Queen would never wear full leopard print, but it shows a touch of regal humour just to give the illusion of the pattern. The Queen then unveiled a new underground train, which has been named the Queen Elizabeth II.
