Audience at Buckingham Palace

The Queen received the President of Sri Lanka, Mr. Maithripala Sirisena, and his wife, Jayanthi, for an audience at Buckingham Palace.
Exciting! The Queen came prepped and ready to get in the Sri Lanka mood in her Sri Lankan Flower Spray Brooch, given to her while on a state visit there in 1981. We haven't seen this brooch since 2011, and I always manage to forget just how HUGE it is between wearings. A nice change after some appearances where we could scarcely see the brooch on display, right?
