There have been a number of war commemoration events over the past few years and The Queen has regularly attended them wearing brooches associated with her mother. That touching gesture continued today with the Centenary Rose Brooch, her own 100th birthday gift to The Queen Mother. She was all in on the pink today, striking a welcome bright note in a sea of dark suits.
