Festival of Remembrance

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, attended the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

It is nice to see a brooch with its optional pendant back in place for a change, but I'm not sure the Richmond Brooch was up for the task of handling Her Majesty's poppy bouquet - things had been rearranged between arrival (above) and the show (below).
It does look like this is the first time this has been used since this blog's been around, so that's delightful anyway!

Richmond Brooch

As always, a whole host of members of the royal family were present: The Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of York, Earl and Countess of Wessex, Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra and Prince Michael of Kent can all be seen below.
A couple of the ladies were wearing regimental brooches, the Duchess of Cornwall wore her diamond snake necklace, and Princess Alexandra had a lovely brooch on too.
