Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth breaks tradition and stuns the public.


The Queen of England, Elizabeth, has ditched her favourite black patent shoes for something with a bit more glitz and glamour. 

All the senior members of the royal family gathered in Windsor for one of the oldest chivalries in the history.

The Order of the Garter ceremony — all eyes were on the Queen’s extravagant velvet robe and white plumes stemming from her black hat.

Oh, and perhaps one other wardrobe choice — her very glamorous silver strappy shoes.

Queen Elizabeth was joined by Prince Charles and the Duke of Cambridge for the annual celebrations. They honour those who have been knighted in recognition of their public service. Each of them wears the traditional mantle and hat of the Order.


Hundreds of people watched as the spectacle unfolded at the same chapel where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex married. The crowd couldn’t move but still noticed the lack of black patent leather on the Queen’s feet.

In breaking with her usual footwear choice Anello & Davide shoes, the Queen stepped out in a pair of silver pointed T-bar pumps and a matching shoulder bag.

Even at the royal wedding of her grandson, Prince Harry, she opted for her simple black loafers.

But according to Hello! magazine, the Queen usually wears these special silver shoes for the Order of the Garter every year, and even wore them during the Royal Variety Performance in 2012.

She matched her look with diamond and platinum earrings. According to The Mirror, they belonged to Queen Mary’s Florets and were dated back to 1853.
