The Queen's Birthday Party

The Queen, accompanied by members of the Royal Family, attended a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in celebration of her 92nd birthday.

The birthday girl was shimmering in gold and decked out in pearls and diamonds, with some of her favorite pieces for evening events that aren't too formal. (Because how formal can one get while watching Shaggy perform, right?)

The earrings from Queen Alexandra's Wedding Parure and a longer version of her standard three strand pearl necklace will do just fine. I make little attempt to differentiate between her many pearl necklaces here, but we can see that this one has a detailed pearl and diamond clasp.

Just a little bit of extra bling joined the party in the form of one of The Queen Mother's Cartier bracelets.

The Royal Family packed the seats for this event! Kents in the box to the left, Gloucesters (and Chattos) in the box to the right, and the main royal box filled with members of Her Maj's immediate family, royal fianc├ęs included.

We'll hit highlights from the other guests at the other blog. We'll catch a pair of sparkly earrings here, though:

The Duchess of Cornwall wore her Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra Diamond Earrings! Love the purple dress and love those dangling gems (not least because we can actually see them beneath the hair, ahem). Her pearl choker is one we actually haven't covered yet, one of her more recent additions with a sapphire (or other dark stone) clasp.
