The Queen Effortlessly Outstyles Duchess Kate For Nottingham Station Visit

Who: The Queen
What: Doing what she does best, ie waving, smiling and holding a bunch of flowers while looking utterly impeccable. We're a big fan of HM in aquamarine, and this double-breasted tweed jacket is so on-trend that it hurts us a little.
Where: Nottingham Station.
Bonus info: The Duchess of Cambridge was in tow, and we firmly believe that the Queen easily trumps her granddaughter-in-law in the style stakes.

By contrast Kate looked decidedly drab in her petrol blue Missoni coat

See just how much HM's style hasn't changed over the years:
