The Queen looked radiant in a royal blue coat and hat during a visit to Westminster Abbey in London yesterday (13 October).

Her Majesty’s bold coat featured a neat collar and statement gold buttons and was accessorised with a diamond and sapphire brooch. The brooch is Russian and once belonged the Her Majesty’s grandmother, Queen Mary.

The Queen also wore an asymmetric hat, which was trimmed with a blue sash and adorned with a statement posey of blue and white flowers.

Her Majesty was attending a special service at Westminster Abbey for the Royal British Legion. The event marked 100 years since the Armed Forces charity was founded, in the aftermath of the First World War.

A photograph of the Queen’s visit was shared on the official Royal Family Instagram account and showed Her Majesty receiving a bunch of flowers from two children outside the service.

A caption alongside the image explained that, “As Head of the Armed Forces, The Queen plays an important role in honouring the work of the Armed Forces.”

The Royal Family have been patron’s of the organisation since its creation and Princess Anne joined the Queen at the service.

The Princess Royal gave a reading to the members of the service, which included veterans and volunteers from the charity.

Princess Anne also wore bold colours for the occasion, with a vibrant purple coat and coordinating hat. Her lapel was adorned with two statement brooches, much like the Queen’s own ensemble.
