Yeah, that's not the most flattering of suits. What she wore to the Wills and Kate wedding was much better.

I saw some of the coverage today on Channel 9. Peter Harvey mentioned that the British Royals doing the walk around gave them a common touch and that you never see those sort of scenes in places like Copenhagen or in other parts of Europe. All I can think is that Queen Margrethe of Denmark rides to work and is often seen riding around Copenhagen. A walk around Copenhagen would be pretty much pointless.
