  2. I just read a Vanity Fair adaptation from the book "Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch" by Sally Bedell Smith and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hadn't thought much about the young Elizabeth and was so impressed by Phillip's and her devotion to one another. The pictures of the Royal Family are amazing. Shiree'

  3. Oh yes, nothing like cape cunningly fitted with interior pockets and how it swirls gently about...Looks like the Admiral's cape she wore in the Beaton photographs. Gaye! I have been enjoying all your post. Warmest,

  5. She always looks great! Do you have a cape? I've always wanted one. Dashing. Reminds me of something J. Peterman says about "clothes for the life we wish we had," or something like that.

  7. LOVED the Jubilee!! Stayed glued to the TV (BBC America) for every event. The pomp & ceremony warmed my Canadian heart. And it was so nice to see HRM looking so well and standing so long, also Charles has aged beautifully, or should I say handsomely.He looks very happy.

    I NEVER gave up my capes.I just adore them, my favorite is a small houndstoothe, Blk & White that is probably 40 years old. Stll wear it and enjoy it so much.

    I totally believe NOT to follow every new fashion.

    Missed your posts when the computer was down, glad to have you back.

  8. apparently its the same Admiral's Boat Cloak that was given to her, by the tailors Gieves Ltd, as a tribute in her Coronation year in 1953. And therefore, I guess, the cloak she wore in the 1968 Beaton portraits
