The Queen was ready to welcome spring on Tuesday morning as she popped by the Royal Academy of Arts in a brightly hued ensemble. On hand to open the Burlington Wing, a major development of the site marking the 250th anniversary of the Academy, Her Majesty proved once again that she's a style queen in a vibrant orange dress coat with matching hat. Her ensemble was surely a nod to the first official day of spring on Mar. 20.
The Queen has certainly been making waves in the fashion world during 2018 – she graced the 'FROW' during London Fashion Week at Richard Quinn's SS18 show and even sat next to US Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The 91-year-old monarch made her debut appearance at the event where she presented Richard with the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
She dressed splendidly for the occasion – turning heads in a duck egg blue tweed dress and jacket by Angela Kelly, which were adorned with tiny Swarovski crystals. Anna, meanwhile, kept on her trademark sunglasses during the show, and wore a floral print dress. Only last week the Queen had the Midas touch when she carried a chic gold handbag to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Aga Khan – hosting a private dinner at Windsor Castle to mark the occasion.
She teamed her statement bag with co-ordinating gold shoes and a beautiful bold pink ball gown which was designed with golden floral motifs and voluminous puff shoulders. Also at the high-profile event the Duchess of Cornwall, who chose a black gown made from sumptuous velvet. Princess Anne was also in attendance, and opted for an eye-catching emerald green ensemble with gold specked sleeves.
