As the weekend went on, it soon became clear that members of the Queen’s closest family were also flying the flag with their patriotic sartorial choices.

The Duchess of Cambridge led the way at the Diamond Jubilee Pageant in a scarlet Alexander McQueen long-sleeved dress and clutch , with matching Sylvia Fletcher hat from James Lock & Co with her favourite nude LK Bennett Sledge heels.
For the picnic at the Palace the following day, Princess Eugenie also went for bright red, in a vintage dress from London boutique D&Me with Gina shoes adorned with Union Jacks.
The Queen herself joined in with the theme for the pageant wearing an ivory bouclé coat and dress embroidered with gold, silver and ivory dots and embellished with Swarovski crystals, designed by her personal assistant Angela Kelly.
The Duchess of Cornwall opted for similar shades, in a cream dress coat by her favourite designer Anna Valentine, with matching Philip Treacy hat.
For the picnic at the Palace the next day the Countess of Wessex also went for white, in a stylish trousersuit teamed with a witty Union Jack clutch.
In the blue corner was Zara Phillips, in a midnight-hued peplum skirt suit by Hervé Léger with Karen Henriksen hat for the St Paul’s thanksgiving service, and her sister-in-law Autumn Phillips in an inky dress and contrasting blueand-red sinamay disc hat.
It couldn’t have been a more fitting fashion tribute.
