Westminster Abbey Diamond Jubilee Gallery Opening

The Queen, accompanied by The Prince of Wales, opened The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries at Westminster Abbey.

The Grima Ruby is certainly a statement brooch - and I had to laugh, coming after a no brooch day, that she made sure there was no way we'd miss this one. Especially on a magenta background. (She wore it on a similar color in December.)

Charles was her escort for the day, and the galleries they opened - The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries - sound absolutely fascinating. They're set in the medieval triforium way above the floor at Westminster Abbey, showcasing 300 pieces from the Abbey's collection. Their Facebook page has a little teaser video; the space opens to the public on June 11.
