New Scotland Yard Opening

The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, officially opened the new headquarters of the Metropolitan Police at New Scotland Yard, Victoria Embankment, London.

Several people have commented on how quickly The Queen is reusing her outfits lately, and this is no exception; it was used for a garden party in May. (It was worn the day after the Manchester terrorist attack. Relatedly, if perhaps coincidentally, this visit was originally scheduled to take place the day after the Westminster attacks in March, and was postponed to now.)

Royal Family
Once again, The Queen's brooch choice has been influenced by the golden buttons on this Stewart Parvin coat, and she's selected the Singapore brooch. It really has become a modern favorite, this brooch.
