Queen Elizabeth II presented the Household Cavalry with new standards this morning at Horse Guards Parade. She looked lovely in her “Wedgewood” hat, a neatly tailored hat with squared crown and delicate lace trim in signature Wedgewood blue. I adore this hat on the Queen.
Prince Philip looked dashing in the officer’s frock coat and cap of his Irish Guards uniform.
The Princess Royal, who is Colonel of the Blues and Royals, was also in military uniform including the Home Service Helmet with its distinct red plume.
Today’s event was a wonderful warm-up for Trooping the Colour which is set to take place on June 14.
