  1. Ahhh, this must have been a treat for Her Majesty! She served in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during WWII, so she got to meet some of her fellow veterans. She looked wonderful doing it, too! Her daughter the Princess Royal looked very nice too. I think bright green favors her enormously.
