Rugby World Cup Reception and Investiture at Buckingham Palace

Friday, October 9: The Queen held an Investiture at Buckingham Palace.
Our first glimpse of The Queen back at work in London came on Friday, but since it was an investiture, no brooch looks were forthcoming. {Sad face.}

Today: The Queen, joined by other members of the Royal Family, hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace for the Rugby World Cup 2015.
So I choose to consider this her official return to business instead, and there's no better way to make a comeback than in the richest of purples with amethysts to boot (says me). Scrumptious.
