The Elephant Parade must be one of the most curious charitable events I've ever heard of. Artists put their own mark on elephant sculptures, which are then put on display and are later auctioned off to benefit endangered elephants. I have so many questions about this.
Who buys these elephants? Is there a whole rash of London gardens filled with oversize pachyderm sculptures? And how did so many royals get involved?
Actually, I know the answer to that last question. Camilla's brother, sister and daughter are all involved with the Elephant Family charity, as is the Duchess of York and Lady Annabel Goldsmith (dear friend of Princess Michael of Kent). So, naturally, a whole mess of royals showed up to parade themselves for the good of the elephants; and bless them, they made sure to match the curiousness of their outfits to the curiousness of the elephants on parade. An elephant trend has run amok through the Windsor family. So very many questions:
these outfits on Camilla, but I think she might have forgotten to take the wind into consideration here. This makes me nervous, as does....
Presented without comment.
Princess Michael, of course, had to prove herself the most puzzling of them all:
