H.M. visits the Bank of England
Today the Queen, with Prince Philip by her side, visited the Bank of England. Wearing a pale lilac coat, complimented by an amethyst and diamond brooch, she clutched a bouquet of pale roses. The gentle pastel colours were emphasised by the bright whiteness of her pearl earrings and three-string set of pearls, contrasting with her dark gloves and handbag. In a charming moment, the pale purple of her ensemble echoed the purple colouration of the bank notes she inspected.
The Queen was treated to a tour of the gold vaults, which store thousands of bars of gold amounting to billions of pounds. A sight worth seeing!
