The 95-year-old monarch opted for her leafy floral Angela Kelly dress, teamed with black pumps, her signature Launer handbag and chic white gloves.

She added a dazzling gold and diamond brooch to her look, and her signature three-strand pearl necklace and earrings, of course.

Her sparkling pin had a special story behind it, as always - the brooch, made in the shape of a spray of sorghum, was given to her by the President of Botswana in 2007, when she led a meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government in Uganda.

The Queen will also later join forces with the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall at an event in celebration of The Big Lunch at the Eden Project.
