Westminster Hall Visit

The Queen visited Westminster Hall, Palace of Westminster, London, to view the window installed in honor of her Diamond Jubilee. While there, she visited a plaque commemorating Nelson Mandela's 1996 visit, one day after the former South African President's death.
Video: The Queen speaks about learning of Mandela's death, including the fact that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were at the premiere of the movie "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" when the announcement came. Click here for a gallery from the visit.
And it's the small pink brooch, as she continues with her run of visiting Diamond Jubilee windows (seriously, that seems to have been the gift to get the Jubilee girl).
Three Strand Pearl Necklace

In other news...the Queen held some audiences on December 4th, wearing what I think is the Frosted Gold Sunflower Brooch (and a longer three strand pearl necklace, again).
