The Braemar Gathering

The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of Rothesay, and The Princess Royal, attended the annual Braemar Gathering in Scotland.

Probably the best thing about this outfit - which I love, because purple - is that it often brings the promise of an amethyst brooch. Not for this occasion, though! The Braemar Feather Brooch was Her Maj's Golden Jubilee gift from the Braemar Royal Highland Society, and she's worn it annually ever since.

The purple's still a lovely, fresh contrast to a sea of tartan n' tweed, isn't it?
