The Queen welcomed the President of Switzerland to Windsor Castle yesterday (28 April) for an official audience.

For the occasion, Her Majesty wore a loosely structured, silk dress in a jewel-toned paisley print. To accessorise her look, the Queen opted for a triple string of classic pearls and an heirloom brooch.

At her shoulder the Queen wore a sapphire and diamond brooch in the shape of grapes, topped with a bow.

The brooch has a sentimental history, as it once belonged to the late Queen Mother and was inherited by Her Majesty after her mother’s passing.

A photograph of the visit was shared to the Royal Family’s official social media accounts yesterday (28 April) with a caption stating that, “This afternoon The Queen received the President of Switzerland, Mr Ignazio Cassis, for an Audience at Windsor Castle.”

Members of the public seemed pleased to see the Queen looking happy and refreshed as she conducted her work and left comments of support on the post.

“Her Majesty is looking great. Love her!” read one comment while another said, “What a beautiful dress she’s wearing.” Others remarked on the Queen “looking happy” and “radiant” for her latest engagement.

Her Majesty recently turned 96 and was flooded with best wishes from both members of the public and members of the Royal Family.

Princess Eugenie wrote a sweet message on social media to “Granny”, describing the Queen as an “inspiration.”
