We loved the fact that the monarch brought the sun with her, arriving in a truly beautiful outfit by Stewart Parvin in the boldest yellow we've ever seen. The double-wool crepe coat in the bright shade was worn with an A-line silk dress in shades of yellow, royal blue and turquoise, and the mother-of-four topped off the look with a coordinating hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan, and her Singapore brooch. Beautiful!

The monarch was given an Oyster card and was even shown how to use it on a ticket machine! The 96-year-old, who now rarely carries out public engagements outside of her royal residences, joined her youngest son Prince Edward at Paddington Station for the special royal visit.
