Audience at Buckingham Palace

The Queen received the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Vaughn Schofield, at Buckingham Palace.
Best news of the day: the lovely Lieutenant Governor here came bearing gifts! In addition to a donation to the Malala Fund in the Queen's name, Her Majesty was presented with a new addition to the brooch collection: the Saskatchewan Tourmaline Flower Brooch. It's a year for brooch giving, apparently - you'll remember that the Queen was recently presented with a new gem from New Zealand as well. But for the moment, she stuck to one of her old faithfuls, the Flower Basket.
