Holyrood Week, Day 2: Audiences and Garden Party

The Queen received the Scottish First Minister and the Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament for audiences at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. She also held an investiture. Accompanied by the Earl of Wessex, she hosted a Garden Party at the Palace.

I can't quite make out what brooch she was wearing during her audiences, but we got a lovely surprise at the garden party in the form of a little-seen thistle brooch (click the brooch link below)!
