  1. I just don’t believe she has a duplicate of each outfit either. That does strike me as Daily Fail nonsense. Angela Kelly mentioned nothing of the sort in her book, and it would just be the kind of waste which the Queen is meant to hate. However it was interesting to see the rather unceremonious manner in which her clothes and hats were carted about. Back of a white van indeed!!

  2. I’d never read before that each of Queen Elizabeth’s outfits has a duplicate. There might be a REPLACEMENT outfit on hand for outings, but I just wonder about the accuracy of the duplicate. Could be, of course. Remember this incident, though?
    (Perhaps we should start watching for subtle differences between coat/hat A or coat/hat B at different wearings!)

  3. Love the story about the Queen but the Mail’s captions always leave something to be desired – spelling, accuracy, etc. Fascinated by the staff numbers and the logistical planning that goes into any outing. I had an idea but this story reveals how much fine detail is involved.

    • I agree sandra. I was surprised that the Queen has a duplicate of every outfit, however, I understand why because no matter how careful she is, someone could spill something on her, and she is able to discretely change to the spare outfit and people would be none the wiser.
