Investiture at Windsor Castle

The Queen held an Investiture at Windsor Castle, at which Dame Maggie Smith was made a Companion of Honour.
Everything about this is excellent. Dame Maggie Smith: Excellent, in every way. The Flame Lily Brooch: Excellent. A celebrity getting an award so that we can see the video of the investiture and thus actually see said brooch: Excellent. Her Maj's trusty handbag, perched on the chair behind her as though it requires its own throne: Excellent, and hilarious.
