Sophie Grégoire's stylish meeting with the Queen

Days after her husband, Justin Trudeau, had his first audience with Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace, Sophie Grégoire was treated to her own royal moment at a banquet during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Malta. Dressed in a simple and elegant white evening gown, the mom of three looked thrilled to meet the monarch who, at 89, has attended almost every conference since her coronation in 1953.

The Queen topped her stunning crystal-beaded white gown with the emerald-and-pearl Vladimir Tiara and matching necklace. Canada’s new prime minster seemed to make quite an impression on the Queen, who singled out the handsome leader during her toast. After Justin honoured the monarch with these kind words, “Your example of dedication and selfless service inspires as we strive to build our societies on the principles of respect, inclusiveness and dignity,” the Queen joked, “Thank you, Mr. Prime Minister of Canada, for making me feel so old!"

Earlier in the day, Sophie, 40, accompanied her husband to the meeting dressed in a pale pink lace dress. She channelled the Duchess of Cambridge by accessorizing with a tulle-topped hat. The couple’s appearance in Malta is the second stop on their six-day European tour.
