Queen Elizabeth II wore an orange coat to celebrate the Queen’s Baton Relay on Thursday with Prince Edward. The Queen’s Baton Relay is for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, due to take place in Birmingham next summer. The Queen also wore a matching hat with beautiful orange and white floral detailing.
She appeared to be wearing a circular brooch in the shape of a flower, along with some pearl necklaces and pearl earrings.
Twitter user Aine McCarthy wrote: “Enjoying the orange Your Majesty!”
Another royal fan, Chris Harrison, agreed, saying: “The Queen looks good in orange.”
The Twitter account @Annie_bear1872 added: “Wearing Orange and looking staunch… God save our glorious Queen.”
Her Majesty also appeared to be wearing black gloves and her signature Launer London handbag, which costs around £1,550.
Prince Edward looked very dapper in a navy blue suit and matching blue tie, as he walked behind his mother for the Queen’s Baton Relay.
The Queen wore this orange dress-coat outfit a few years ago when visiting the Royal Academy of Arts in London in March 2018.
More often seen in delicate pastel shades, the Queen brightened up the October weather today with her chosen ensemble.
The vibrant coat dress and matching statement hat was embellished with orange and white blooms.
The Queen stole the show with this elegant bold orange coat and matching hat, accessorising with the Nizam of Hyderabad Rose brooch.
Her Majesty also wore her favourite pair of elegant Gucci loafers, which cost £540.
The Queen spent two months at her Scottish estate Balmoral during the summer and returned to Windsor Castle last weekend.
The presence of Prince Edward at the Queen’s side today is particularly poignant in the wake of Prince Philip’s death.
The late Duke of Edinburgh was appointed President of the Commonwealth Games Federation in 1955.
As President, he opened the games six times.
Prince Edward has already taken over the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, which was launched by Prince Philip in the 1950s.
The Queen included a personal message inside the baton, to be passed on across the several nations participating in the tournament.
