Christmas Service

The Queen, accompanied by members of the Royal Family, attended Christmas service at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham.

There's no way orange and black doesn't read Halloween to me, so I'm dubious from the start on this ensemble for the Queen - even if it is "burnt orange cashmere" from Stewart Parvin with fur hat and trim. The brooch is always a winner, though: one of Queen Victoria's Bows.
The sartorial winner of the day? The Duchess of Cornwall, as far as I'm concerned! Camilla looked chic and rocked her own brooch with Queen Victoria connections - an 1897 Diamond Jubilee gift from family members. See Camilla and more family members in the following features:
As you can see from the Daily Mail link, the Queen was also spotted at the first church service of the day, in a fur coat.
