Buckingham Palace Garden Party and Audiences

The Queen, with other members of the Royal Family, hosted a garden party at Buckingham Palace.
Gotta love a garden party in the pouring rain, right? With 8,000 guests, you're pretty much stuck with the outdoors anyway. The Queen counteracted the gloom in her cheery yellow (this is the outfit she wore to William and Kate's wedding, if it looks familiar) and her favorite brooch. Other family members in attendance were the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, and the always lovely Princess Alexandra of Kent - see the links above.

Also today, the Queen received the Ambassadors of Bolivia and Liberia at Buckingham Palace.

I think she might be  wearing the wee Greville Scroll Brooch, but with the print of the dress (and everything else going on in the room!) it's hard to tell.

One more thing, of little relevance to jewelry, but here you go: Yesterday, the Queen was spotted riding at Windsor Castle.
