This isn’t a sartorially notable event, but it is one near and dear to hearts of royal watchers. The Queen Consort hosted her annual tree trimming event yesterday, and it was as warm and wonderful as we all remember. She wore a repeated Fiona Clare dress and the capelet coat we all remember from last winter – but it’s the heartfelt sentiment around this event that everyone focuses on.
Children and their parents were sponsored by the Roald Dahl Charity and Helen & Douglas House. Both charities support children who are seriously and terminally ill. The Queen and her household visit with the children, chat with reindeer, trim the tree, and enjoy a meal together.
I’d certainly ooh and ah at this point.
The dashing Captain Ed Andersen helped the Queen and children decorate, using his sword to reach those hard to access parts of the tree.
This is a lovely detail on the Queen’s ensemble. This is also a great account to follow if you are on Twitter and interested in Camilla’s fashion.
At Clarence House today, The Queen wore her gold Luckenbooth Brooch—a Scottish heart-shaped brooch and is often surmounted by a crown (hers by the Tudor Crown).💛👑
It's an enduring Scottish symbol of love, friendship and good luck, strongly associated with Edinburgh.🏴✨ pic.twitter.com/wRQKdTsEWL
