These Boots Were Made For Walking

| Filed under: AnglophiliaRoyals Royce

After years of the same stodgy outfit, the Queen of England stepped out in a fierce new pair of boots, proving that it's never too late to take a fashion chance.

And succeed!

Although a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace says that the boots were more for function than fashion, as the Queen took a brisk walk through the Slovakian Tatra mountains on a three day tour of Slovakia and Slovenia this week.

The Queen Mum looked absolutely fabulous as she opened a hockey match, in a slim-fitting golden fur-trimmed coat, topped with a hat that defied her usual monochromatic wardrobe with a bright lavender feather.

Are you ready boots?

Start walking!

    LoveTravis Mccoy got it right! You so are my guilty pleasure, Perez! I am a hard working, respected professional by day but by night… a secret celebrity gossip fan. Some people who know my secret find it hard to understand, but you couldn't make up what happens in La La Land. One day you win American Idol and become an Oscar winning actress, the next your family fall out and kill each other. Its crazy shitz.

    The Queen Mother died a few years ago.

    The Queen is just FAB, love her.

    Re: ColinFarrellstheman – Yes…but she isn't prime minister…she has virtually no power at all…

    Re: SheriMoonZombie – For god's sake diana's death was the fault of the paparazzi and some white car that hit hers why can't people get over these conspiracy theories and accept that it was an accident and let her rest in peace!

    Re: EMILY_S – I like you girl!
    Did you know that during WW2 when she was a little girl she had the chance to flee England for safety but stayed??? She issued speeches to children in England under heavy bombardment and gave them strength and hope. She has major "balls"!!! I really admire HRM, she is a beacon of light and has loads of knowledge people wouldn´t believe! She is REAL FEMALE POWER!



  10. 110

    Please don´t hate on the Queen… She really is one of the most powerful women ever! I vow to thee Eliza II



  11. 111

    whoa, hey, those are actually cool-looking boots! never would have thought the queen would wear something like that at the age of 80! way to go, but i still want canada to get out of the monarchy. :D



  12. 112

    she's the Queen.. not the Queen Mum!



  13. 113

    Long live the Queen! She looks cute in those boots! Very proud to be part of the British Commonwealth! (Canada)



  14. 114

    Queen Mum??

    Perez…as u probably know by all the comments the Queen Mums dead. Thats our Elizabeth II … x



  15. 115

    HEY those are some snazzy boots, Liz…WOW only 50 years too late… They would look GREAT On Princess Di if you and your "company" hadn't had her killed.

    Stylish boots, I like 'em. Better than those "rubbers" (as they call them) she usually wears.



  16. 116

    Re: Lady Astor – Yes, yes she USED TO DO a lot of things. Like treat her LITTLE boy (Charles) Like a strangers kid down the street. No wonder he's the way he is. Ever see that film of her coming home after a 6 week? or month stretch gone and he RUNS to her for a hug and she backs off and rejects hims more or less and shakes his hand or something stupid (its been a while since I saw it but I will never forget the coldness. HE STILL has to make appointments to see his MOTHER. Im not on his side where Diana is concerned, but as a mother of a son myself, it KILLED me to see that. When YOUNG, people are idealistic and DO do things - she lost hers a long time ago. Wake up.



  17. 117

    Re: GiiLLY – Well we Americans don't know all the ins and outs of that - not that Im taking up for Perez, but seems to me if the Queen Mum is dead, and she is…Eliz now becomes the Queen Mum doesnt she? OR is that QUEEN for as in Eliz..not that E-1 was Queen once(title curtesy)(now)mum OF the Queen? I kinda always thought it was a past post title curtesy. So when Charles' Darling horseface becomes queen..well…Liz will be dead too(SHE herself has sad she isnt GIVING up the throne)…so who gets to be Queen Mum next?? No one for a long time I guess. DI would have eventually been when King Charles and she gave the throne to Prince William and his Queen…but sadly that won't happen…so it IS confusing. OR can be. she is a Queen and a Mum, tho' you'd hardly know it. If they werent such HARDASSES(esp abt Di) I wouldnt feel abt them the way I do, sorry.



  18. 118

    Re: ChandraCaprice – and EVEN Charles…. (how THEY treat HIM) BAH.



  19. 119

    Re: TyloXO – OH I hate those things…God love her, tho', they're probably comfy…but you wouldn't catch me in them. I'd wear the ones up above…but not those stupid uggs and you see Hollywood hotties in them all the time and they look STUPID on them too.



  20. 120

    Re: buttcrackcheese – I suppose you've heard this but I gotta get it off my chest..GOD WHAT A GROSS SCREEN NAME…augh what's wrong wit you??? What kinda person wants to be known as that ??? Mine doesnt have that so its especially shocking and disgusting to me to see someone name themselves after what happens in their crack.
    lol



  21. 121

    LOL Im in rare form this morning, it IS early and Ive been up all night so you all will have to excuse my sense of humor and indignation and how SOME treat others. (above, not anyone here)



  22. 122

    Cool boots :)



  23. 123

    Re: Xelia Kay – Yeah but after wearing those big wobbly rubber ones, bet these suckers hurt her bunions…….HAHAHA oh dear.
    They are tight leather, and heeled…can you imagine?



  24. 124

    Re: saske72 – re killing Canadian black bears for those stupid hats:
    HIP HIP HOORAY for what you said Saske72!
    Its ridiculous in this day and age; faux fur looks great…enough for those stupid hats.



  25. 125

    Re: Lady Astor – Powerful?? SHE"S A FIGUREHEAD. HER power is within her "company" IN the palace..you know..the one I spoke of earlier that she and "Phileep" had do away with DI and company. THATS the kind of
    "powerful" woman SHE is. Other than that, what? She hides all the time. Had to DRAG her out for Di's funeral….even Charles had had it with her at that point. That movie about her was pretty close to right-on only a bit soft, I think.
    Sorry IF Im wrong about her; but I don't think I am..too many others think the same thing; even DI felt it coming and wrote it and told her close friends before hand. Can't be much more obvious than that. She's head of the CHURCH and that's about it outside the palace. Hillary Clinton is a stronger woman that actually get things DONE to help people. Just to name ONE. Mother Theresa for two; Princess DI, my favorite; LOTS of stronger women than HER. She was molded, coldly just like Charles was. I guess I have to admit some sympathy for her on that front. She seemed a sweet young girl at one time. I would have LOVED to see Di and Charles make it, and be King and Queen. But noooooo oooo. He had to have Camilla…and now look - he's already unhappy. He couldnt see that coming.



  26. 126

    Re: ChandraCaprice – can you really blame her.. there is no way you could understand how she was brought up or why she is the way she is.. she was forced into this "job" at such a young age.. a job that she essentially watched kill her father.. as much priviledge and wealth she has, it's almost a curse I think



  27. 127

    Perez! The Queen Mum is dead. So if she opened a hockey match, that's pretty impressive!

    Elizabeth II is NOT the Queen of England (there is no such thing any more); she is the Queen of The UNITED KINGDOM :p

    (And Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis.)



  28. 128

    OMG…….I have those boots.

    VV



  29. 129

    I see a similar comment is here several times, but just so we have make it clear. Queen Elizabeth II is not the Queen Mum, nor will she ever be. The Queen Mum is the Mother of the Queen.



  30. 130

    I'm American and even I knew that the Queen Mum is the mother of the Queen. Perez, go back to school, please.

    I've always wanted to play with the Royal's crowns and jewelry. Surely they'd allow us all to take a field trip to the palace! ;-)



  32. 132

    Re: ChandraCaprice – Chandra, this is how it goes.
    *
    "The King is dead, long live the Queen."
    *
    The British Monarchy is a hereditary monarchy.
    *
    King George VI was Elizabeth's father; her mother was Queen Elizabeth, don't get confused because they both were named Elizabeth.
    *
    When King George VI passed away, his daughter Elizabeth ascended to the throne as Queen Elizabeth II and her mother became known as The Queen Mother.
    *
    If Charles outlives his mother, he will be the next King of England and Camilla will be at his side, most likely as Queen Consort.
    *
    If Charles is the reigning King of England when he dies, William will then ascend to the throne. "The King is dead, long live the King."
    *
    If Camilla is still alive, I will then call her the Evil Queen Step-Mother.
    *
    If I were William, I would pack Camilla's belongings in a black plastic bag and throw her and the bag out in the street.
    *



  36. 136

    She's rockin' those boots!! FYI Perez….the Queen Mum and the Queen are two different people…and the Queen Mum is dead.



  37. 137

    So the Olsen girls can't wear fur, but the Queen can?



  38. 138

    I know every1 else has pulled you up about the Queen Mum comment but what about the Queen of England one? It's Britain and the Commonwealth not just England!



  39. 139

    i think youll find shes the queen of the united kingdom, she hasnt been the queen of england since 1600 something



  40. 140

    and the queen mum is dead



  41. 141

    The Brits hate her!



  42. 142

    Aww, she looks good.



  43. 143

    fur? you've got to be kidding me. that's disgusting. she looks adorable but FUR…terrible



  44. 144

    Re: snaily – That's right, believe everything your Queen tells you. Diana was afraid of her and that monkeyfunk husband of hers. We know they killed her coz she was pregnant by Dottie and he was a Muslim and that shit don't fly with them. Until, Fergie, there were no divorces in the Royal family. This was too much for them to handle. They did it and we know it.



  45. 145

    Re: SheriMoonZombie – Dodie, not Dottie. If you know so much about the Queen's evil schemes you'd think you would at least know how to spell her "target"'s names correctly.



  46. 146

    You don't want to be saying nasty things about our monarch do you? You might not get let in to the UK when you MC that thingy you're supposed to be doing in Liverpool. So shallow. It's a shame you don't realise how transparent you've become.



  47. 147

    Love the Queen!! The boots are pretty fashionable, have to say! Good for her! Perhaps update the rest of the wardrobe now? :)



  48. 148

    Re: EMILY_S – Sorry I started this once & it may show up, I hit a key and lost so dont know if lost or will post but - THANK YOU Emily AND mdcomeau. MD- yes I know how she was brought up, just like Charles. I understand. Its no excuse. My dear friend had a murderer for a stepfather and an uneducated but very loveable mother that didnt do much for her & she succeeded in spite of all against her.Emily - I think in one of my posts I did say most of what you said, about the Queen Mum, not being one for a long time (DI would have been if they had a had a girl first to be in line right? Anyway I now get that better too. I knew that Elizabeth II's mother was the Q Mum..That doesnt confuse me, thanks. Did I insult you? NO. Not personally.
    Anyway…It will be a LONG time b4 a Qmum again. Had that in my post. But I DO thank you for the history lesson. Tho' I already knew most all of it. I still feel the way I do about the figurehead that was part of what happened to DI alive and how she died..and even AFTER she died.



  49. 149

    Re: EMILY_S – It might surprise you to know that..I know there have been more than 2 Queen Elizabeths….yeah.



  50. 150

    Re: EMILY_S – I left out that nasty word "consort" - I dont know why but I think that's insulting. 2 were wives of the King…I know. Seems one of the Kings in distant past named his daughter Elizabeth (NOT This one). Not sure on that one. Again though thanks for all your trouble to write that out.



  51. 151

    Re: mdcomeau – Hi…Can I really blame her? For being so cold to her little son? YES. Well I know dysfunctional is "hereditary" (so to speak) but she was an individual, a nice YOUNG woman or appeared to be…so I think she could have resented how SHE was forced or whatever you said, and treated her child better. She treats the "lesser" sons better than she does Charles. I dont think that makes for a good King, husband, or father. But I agree with you its a messy way to be raised. But what has that to do with how I feel toward the Di issue?
    Nothing, really. They were wicked while she lived there…we KNOW that. And many suspect (even DI) that they were going to have her killed. Funny thing it happened. WHAT a coincidence.
    But thanks for the nice post to me. Im sorry if my feelings about her hurt you. I dont mean to.



  52. 152

    Something else ppl are confused on, and I never thought of it til this conversation -ppl refer to QMum as Queen Elizabeth I(First).Maybe that's just our mistake. MayB she wasnt called that ever in the business sense. But Wouldn't she really be Queen Consort? No number? Consorts dont get numbers right? Queen Mum Eliz was married to KING Geo VI, right? So she was a Queen Consort&when Geo died, his brother took over? But abdicated for the love of his life, cant think of her name..so why is QMum thought of as Queen Elizabeth 1? Does confusion come frm E2's "2" come from THE REAL QE-1 from history? I read article googled & THEY were confused on that ref to mum & E as QE 1&2 & how if Wm had dau name E, she'd become E III, if married an E she'd be Consort no numb. HOPE YOU CHK BK EMILY-S. I had NOT ever given that any thought because I sort of block out that consort thing. I dont know why I feel so strongly against that word..guess as I was growing up, got an impression somewhere that was not a good thing to be, I think it IS used in that way also, like..adultress or lover in a derrogatory way.(When ppl still were more caring abt marriage & monogamy than they are now.) It just seems to take something away from her. Not quite Queen… Well nice talking w/you guys about this. You MUST admit it CAN be confusing.



  53. 153

    Re: ChandraCaprice – The queen mum has NEVER been referred to as Elizabeth the first because she was never a queen, she was a queen consort. Only kings and queens have successive titles. Elizabeth the first was Elizabeth Tudor.



  54. 154

    Re: ChandraCaprice – No, there have only been two. Elizabeth Tudor and Elizabeth Windsor. You should probably shut your mouth about the British monarchy, as the shit you're spewing is completely not true and feeding false information back to the Americans when they're already so mixed up about our monarchy is a totally stupid idea.
