The Queen looks that she is ageing as well. But I was shocked to see Lady Susan Hussey, her Lady-in-Waiting, she grows older faster and faster as well.

Eh, as far as I can tell, Lumutqueen, she's a captain.
And she doesn't appear to be conversing with QEII, rather she appears to have some sort of specific role.

I've never noticed this before.
It's normal to attach an adjutant to a visiting - foreign - dignitary as a kind of liason officer.
But QEII is not visiting a foreign country and she has her own LiW's and adjutants with her. So what is this female officer doing?

Yes, I know, only nerds can be interested...

She is meeting the Queen, just because she isn't conversing with the Queen in the picture doesn't mean she hasn't before or didn't after. She could be assigned to the man who is actually conversing with The Queen, if that makes you feel better. As to what her name is, what she does, and why she's there (other than meeting the Queen) doubt anyone is going to know.

Looking forward to seeing and reading about your experience. A once in a lifetime opportunity, for sure.

Her Majesty looked splendid on her arrival. She's indeed aging very well.

Easy, Lumutqueen.

I was merely being curious.

First off- love H.M. outfit, and hat- indeed stunning, love the color combo, and the purple flower in her hat.
Love Mrs. Bryce in the pink outfit in the 3rd pic! Easy to spot in the crowd... big plus. Get your shades on, Your Majesty!
Love the 7th pic, and the smile in the last pic.

I loved seeing the pictures of Her Majesty with the children. The look on her face when she was given a stuffed puppy was priceless.

Muhler - she's the Australian aide-de-camp, appointed for the duration of the visit.

Quite appropriately, she appears to be wearing the Australian Wattle Brooch:

I think that's the Wattle brooch - a gift from the people of Australia during her visit there in 1954. HMQ always tries to wear brooches with special significance when she makes visits to her other realms.

Windsorgirl and EIIR, thank you so much for the information and the story behind the brooch. It's a lovely piece of jewelry with a great meaning behind it.

She always wears that brooch when she visits Australia or attends an event that relates specifically to Australia when in the UK e.g. when she opened the war memorial for the Australians in London she wore it as well.

She also has a silver fern one that she wears in NZ for the same reason.

As for this being her last visit - I was watching the arrival and the commentators were mentioning the fact that she isn't going to Sydney and that they wouldn't be surprised if she comes back again even possibly next year in the Jubilee. Although they didn't say it one thing to note is that she isn't visiting NZ this time it is possible (she can't visit NZ at the moment as they are in election mode).
