Funeral of Countess Mountbatten of Burma and Audiences at Buckingham Palace

The Queen, joined by other members of the Royal Family, attended the funeral of Countess Mountbatten of Burma at St. Paul's Church, Knightsbridge.

Several members of the Royal Family gathered to say goodbye to Patricia Knatchbull, who was Prince Philip's first cousin, The Queen's third cousin, and The Prince of Wales' godmother. The group included Her Majesty (who rarely attends funerals herself) plus The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of York, The Countess of Wessex, The Princess Royal, Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, The Duchess of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent, Princess Alexandra of Kent, Lady Sarah Chatto, and Lady Helen Taylor.

Also today, The Queen held audiences at Buckingham Palace.

That makes two brooches for the day, and they're both pretty big ones. For those of you that wanted some Cambridge emerald action at Ascot, here it is, just a few days late.
