I like how she takes that glove off, ready to get down to tweeting business. And I really like that subtle bit of sparkle the Nizam Rose brooch is giving off. This is the third time we've seen this brooch this year so far.
Here's one last detail, for those of you fascinated by the bouquets given to royals at their engagements: Her Maj received an "Information bouquet" today. Clever, I think!
To thank The Queen, our inventor-in-residence @markchampkins designed this beautiful Information bouquet #smInfoAge pic.twitter.com/0C5zXKh9v9
