I'm not saying I don't miss seeing Prince Philip more often, but it is kind of fun to watch them spin the big wheel of family members to see which one gets to accompany Her Maj for the day. Prince William's obviously the perfect choice here, since he and his family visited Germany earlier this year.

The big wheel of brooches landed on the Saskatchewan Tourmaline Flower today! I love this one for these heavily textured pink suits, it stands out so well.

In fact, it's practically leaping off her shoulder in these audience photos, which made me laugh. IT'S ME, GUYS, THE PINK ONE! (Obviously I have also included this pic because I'm happy to recognize any and all caped visitors. This fabulous lady is Mrs. Al Nahar, wife of the Ambassador from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Mr. Omar Barakat Mnawer Al Nahar.)
