The Royal Lancers Amalgamation Parade

The Queen, Colonel-in-Chief, attended the Amalgamation Parade of The Queen's Royal Lancers and 9th/12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Wales's) to form The Royal Lancers at Richmond Castle, North Yorkshire. Also in attendance was The Duke of York, Deputy Colonel-in-Chief.
Well of course she wore pink on the day she got a new great-granddaughter. And there really is something so delicious to me about this one day, out of all the days, being the one on which she wears a skull and crossbones brooch.

I mean, sure, it's a regimental badge and therefore a must for an occasion like this, but I'm going to ignore that and keep giggling. I like to think she would have opted for the cheekily cheery combo of pink and skulls whether Baby Cambridge was a girl or a boy. Somebody get her a pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf, let's go all out!

I could do without this hat, though. Not my favorite shape, and not improved by being a bit more squat and a bit more see-through than the others. Focus on the rest of the pink.
