The long sleeved garment had a large collar and was held shut by a row of black buttons.

While her jacket was closed, glimmers of a floral dress could be seen underneath.

She had on a pair of nude tights and wore white gloves.

The Queen sported a matching royal blue hat adorned with white and blue feathers.

DON’T MISS

On her left arm she carried her favourite Launer black bag, which costs £1,650.

The 95-year-old tied her look together with some eye-catching jewellery pieces.

The royal opted to wear a pair of stud pearl earrings she was gifted in 1947.

Queen Elizabeth II has regularly worn the pearls since they were given to her as a gift from her grandmother Queen Mary.

It was later passed down to Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary and the Queen Mother before becoming part of the monarch’s collection.

The oval brooch has a central sapphire surrounded by 12 diamonds.

Queen Elizabeth has worn the eye-catching jewel on many important occasions.

She donned it for the christening of Prince William and her Christmas Day speech in 2019.

The royal is rarely seen without a brooch to complete her look. 

The Queen reportedly has a collection of 97 brooches in total.

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on March 26, 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 39, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, six, and Louis, three, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
