It looks like Queen Elizabeth the second has sparked a new fashion trend…
Sun.co.uk:THE Queen has become an unlikely fashion icon – sparking a boom in TROUSER SUIT sales.Shoppers have bought 40 per cent more after Her Majesty donned a lime green outfit on a cruise around Scotland’s Western Isles in July.

Which begs the question, is this just a fa or the beginning of something major?
