I saw the feed from this event on the national news. It must have been hard for her to see anything while the photographers were taking their pictures. She and Prince Phillip were bombarded by those strong flashes. She is such a good sport about these events!

Her Majesty is to become a great-grandmother in December.  Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn are expecting their first child.

That would make her the first monarch since the last reigning Queen, Victoria, to see a great-grandchild.  :) If William does marry soon and quickly produce an heir, perhaps there will be a replay of the situation (and accompanying photos) of the monarch and 3 successive heirs to the throne ala the famous sitting with Victoria, Edward VII, George V and Edward VIII.

According to HELLO, this brooch had lain undiscovered in the vaults until it was rediscovered recently & thought perfect for the tour! Apparently it could have been a gift to either Queen Alexandra or Mary. Makes one wonder what else is in the vaults undiscovered!!

This brooch was a 1901 gift from the Ladies of Montreal to Q. Mary, then Duchess of York or Princess of Wales.
Menkes confirms this in her book.
