St. Paul's was simply lousy with royals today! Let's get this Jubilee party started, hatters!

Looks like we've got Birgitte wearing the same coat she donned for William's wedding here, paired with a different (and, IMO, far less attractive) hat. The whole look's just so heavy.
And Dr. Claire's hair looks fab, but the gray and the tiny tiny headpiece are bringing me down...
Glance behind the lovely Serena Linley -- that's Claire Ulster in the navy coat. I like that she's embraced the structural beret trend, but surely she could have gone with something a little more special than a plain black hat for this big occasion?
ETA: Clearer picture here. Now it all makes sense -- it's a takeaway pie/pizza slice container, painted black, possibly an arts and crafts project courtesy little Xan Culloden. Er - recycled chic?

Okay, so Dr. Claire Booth, The Countess of Ulster, is second from the left on this picture, between her sister-in-law, Lady Rose Gilman, and her husband, The Earl of Ulster, who is being dwarfed rather comically by Prince William. Everybody with me?
Anyway. I think Claire may not realize that, during the course of the Horseguards parade and the palace fly-past, something has sprouted from the top of her head. Hopefully the good doctor will know what to do next...
Another of the many crane your head and peek around and squint photos from the steps of St. George's Chapel. Dr. Claire Booth, wife of the Earl of Ulster and daughter-in-law of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, is on the far right hand side in the back row of this picture. She's standing behind her brother-in-law, Gary Lewis.
From what I can see, Claire's looking quite lovely. I like the color of her dress and the contrast with the black coat. It looks like she's gone with her usual stand-by for the hat, unfortunately -- a bunch of feathers sticking out of her hair -- less even than a substantial fascinator. They do appear to be aqua feathers, which at least earns her some unexpected points.
