Audience at Buckingham Palace

The Queen received Dame Marguerite Pindling, newly appointed Governor-General of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, for an audience at Buckingham Palace, and invested her with the Insignia of a Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.

Now this is what you wear to meet The Queen! In fact, Dame Marguerite might be the only person to ever out-coordinate QEII. Her Maj's handbag, impeccably shiny though it may be, just can't compete. (It is a little different than her favorite square style, though. I'm not sure what it says about me that that's the first thing I noticed when looking at these pics.) Anyway, the Cullinan V Brooch is out to play here, and by my records we haven't seen it since March 2013, which is a pretty long break for this former favorite.
