and husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh visited the British West Midlands as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour of the United Kingdom on Wednesday July 11, 2012.
For her busy day out in the West Midlands, the Queen wore a pale pink dress topped off with a matching pink coat and hat, white gloves, and accessorized with pearl studs, her three-strand pearl choker and a lovely diamond paisley brooch not often worn during public engagements.
The Queen also wore her favorite black patent leather Launer handbag (what does she carry in her bag? Read here…) and black patent leather pumps.
On the jam-packed itinerary for the royal couple was a visit to Hereford Cathedral, Hive Library and History Centre as well as Worcester Guildhall.
Elizabeth II also toured the Herefordshire Diamond Day celebrations at King George V Playing Fields in Hereford, where accompanied by Prince Philip, they took in a parade and also met with members of the public before leaving to attend Worcester Cathedral.
Prince Philip also met with the colorful Ian “Spike” Betterton, who is the Chair of The Friends of St Georges Park, Kidderminster, at Worcester Guildhall. How about that bright pink spiky hair on Spike that defies gravity? Definitely a fashion statement…
