Elizabeth Line Unveiling

The Queen visited the construction of the Crossrail metro service and unveiled its new name at Bond Street station, London. Crossrail will be named the Elizabeth line in Her Majesty's honor when the service opens in 2018.
She dressed to match her new train line! This delights me to no end. (And not just because it happens to be my favorite color. She should dress to match everything that bears her name from here on out. It would be glorious.) You will note that the purple is also the perfect contrast to the neon orange uniforms of the workers in attendance, because Her Maj's team misses nothing.
After an unfortunate run of audiences with mystery brooches, we're back in action on the jewel front too. The Amethyst Bouquet Brooch is a favorite to pair with this repeated Angela Kelly lilac outfit.
