HM looks wonderful as usual. Love the color and for once, I like the black gloves and
bag! :)

I'm a bit late to this thread, but if you're referring to the brooch worn on the Queen's lavender outfit, it's the spray brooch gifted from HM's parents with pink and blue sapphires and also rubies. She also has a matching pair of earrings as well.

Also, the royal blue outfit worn today by HM is absolutely beautiful. It always amazes me that she can wear strong jewel colors and it doesn't fade her out, rather enhances her lovely complexion. I also like the curlicue decoration on her hat; looks like a stiff bow on a gift box. Also, the brooch worn is Queen Mary's Russian brooch; the size of that diamond and sapphire is making me salivate!

And, of course, as Daria commented, an engaging smile always completes an outfit!

You're welcome. Oh, to be set loose in HM's jewel vault, I can't think of anything closer to Nirvana than that!

Nor can I, Baroness. Nor can I... Ah but the dilemma of what to choose!

to be able to be so consequent, uncomplicated and not circumstantial, is admirable...

I'm in full agreement here. Whether she is wearing a light pastel or a strong color, neither make her look washed out. This dark blue is absolutely gorgeous on her.

I wonder how Queen Mary came to possess the Russian brooch. Did one of the Tsars gift it to her, or did it come into the Family after the 1917 Revolution. Regardless of how it came there, it's a beautiful piece of jewelry.

What a lovely colour on HM. Very Regal. She always looks so happy.

HM looks magnificent, that's a really 'royal' blue she's rocking. She really seems to be in a very happy place at the moment, it's wonderful to see.

I really like this shade of blue on her, and the hat is great too. Of course the best part of her look is her engaging and genuine smile. She looks fabulous, as usual.
Thanks for the pics, Daria! Great color, have nothing more to add. I've started to have an obsession for these colors, such as royal blue, deep red shades, lately - they're pretty in now and the Queen is very much up to date again.

It certainly is a very strong, almost royal, blue which really does suit HM. The black assessories work perfectly with this outfit. I do love the elegant hat she has chosen. Overall, a wonderful combination.

Her Majesty today. Curtesy of iceflower.

Today she's in a pale pink outfit, which again, looks great on her. Really love the hat, and would love to know which brooch she's showing off.

Beautiful pictures and I guess HM felt in a very springlike mood today, because the outfit is certainly more suited for that season, I thought. But she looks lovely indeed. The brooch looks like one of Queen Victoria's bow brooches, one of a spectacular set of three in HM's collection.

And those pictures in the cupcake shop are not only sweetly patriotic, but also yummy. I wonder if the Queen sampled any; personally, I'd want a box or two of those to go!

And I always look forward to the surprises she pulls out of her jewel box, namely those divine brooches!

Thank you for the information on the brooch! I do recall seeing some similar pieces at some point from the Royal Collection.

Those cupcakes looked delicious. Totally agree there.

On topic, HM knows how to wow the crowd with her fashion choices, jewelry, smile and poise. She's a pleasure to look at.

The Queen at Remembrance Day today in de rigueur black. The coat is simply elegant and the details are lovely: the buttons, the slash pockets and the shawl collar. The hat has a lovely structured bow to it and the cluster of poppies nestled above the Dorset bow brooch add a magnificent point of interest to the ensemble. HM's really at the top of her game with her outfits in recent months and even dressed in standard black as the other ladies are today, she's always the focal point.
