The Queen Travels to France for D-Day Ceremonies

During the two-hour journey to Paris, the Queen, perhaps with the French capital's formidably stylish residents in mind, changed into her second outfit of the day: a cream lace dress worn with a cream sequin trimmed jacket and a matching hat.

After arriving in Paris, the Queen was met by a guard of honour before being driven to the Élysée Palace, where she and the Duke of Edinburgh will stay during her two-day visit.

Following another change of outfit, this time into a powder pink tweed skirt suit and matching hat, the Queen and Prince Phillip were driven along the Champs Élysées, before the ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Click link for full post and more pictures from The Daily Mail.
