Queen Elizabeth II was pictured laughing and joking today with cast members of Coronation Street as Her Majesty received a tour of the studio at Manchester’s Media City. For the visit, the royal wore a special brooch, which has only been worn a handful of times.
Interestingly, it is only the fifth time that the Queen has shown off the ruby brooch.
She debuted it back in March 2008 in Northern Ireland before wearing it again in 2014 for a gala dinner during her state visit to France.
A year later, the Queen opted for it again during her state visit to Germany in June 2015.
It was most recently seen back in 2019 when the Queen wore it for the church service on Christmas Day.
“Love that colour, she looks lovely,” tweeted a third.
The Queen wasn’t the only Royal Family member to see out today, with Princess Beatrice and Sophie, Countess of Wessex attending the start of the Ladies Singles Semi-Finals at Wimbledon today.
For the occasion, the Countess opted for a beautiful polka-dot dress by fashion brand ME+EM.
The dress, which is made using a chiffon fabric, retails for a whopping £295.
Sophie added a pair of black sunglasses to the look and accessorised it with small silver earrings.
