The Queen presented American businessman John Mars with the insignia of an Honorary Knight Commander of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire during an audience at Windsor Castle.
A service and reception for the Royal Victorian Order was held yesterday but much to my dismay, it has remained private. Instead, we get a glimpse of Her Maj dressing to coordinate with her krazy karpet, in Windsor Castle mode with simple pearl stud earrings and her black strap watch. (And in case you were wondering, John Mars - our honorary knight here - is indeed Mars as in the candy.)
