Queen Elizabeth was all smiles as she enjoyed a Medical Detection Dogs demonstration at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.
The Queen, who is famously passionate about animals beamed as she made her way into the event.
As is often her style, the 92-year-old wore an elegant cornflower blue jacket with a sleeved shift floral dress underneath, further brightening up an already cheerful ensemble with a multi-strand pearl necklace and large jewelled brooch. She matched her gorgeous dress with her favourite black buckle loafers and a black patent handbag.
The royal was joined by her daughter-in-law Camilla, 70, who serves as patron for Medical Detection Dogs.
Camilla was the picture of elegance in a white jacket with a sleeved polka dot dress underneath for the occasion. The duchess wore her hair out in soft waves and opted for minimum makeup. She completed the ensemble with a pair of sensible two-tone Chanel shoes and accessorised with her trademark piece of jewellery: a pair of pearl earrings.
The Queen looked to be in a cheerful mood as she and Camilla were shown the charity’s bio-detection dogs. She and Camilla spent the morning with the pups, who are trained to “smell disease in humans, as well as acting as alert dogs for those with medical issues such as type 1 diabetes,” according to the Royal Family’s Instagram account.
Today’s event, which was held at the Royal Mews, was a celebration in honour of the charity’s 10th anniversary.
