The Queen has made a sweet nod to the late Princess Diana with her outfit at a royal engagement this week.
- The monarch wore a bold magenta and purple dress, which resembled a classic look Princess Diana wore back in the 80s.
- The Queen wore the colourful outfit to receive the Order of St. John’s first Service Medal in Gold.
- This follows royal news that Buckingham Palace is preparing for emergency lockdown to protect the Queen.
Following what probably was an emotional few days for the Queen, who saw her grandson attend his last engagement as an official royal, the monarch was back at work this week.
She met with Professor Mark Compton, Lord Prior of the Order of St. John, to receive the Order of St. John’s first Service Medal in Gold.
For the visit, the Queen wore a fabulous magenta and purple dress, which resembled a classic look Princess Diana wore in the 1989, during a visit to Kuwait.
The Royal Family shared pictures of the occasion on Instagram, and royal fans were quick to comment on great the Queen looked in the fabulous dress.
One said. ‘Her Majesty is looking amazing’, while another wrote, ‘What a wonderful dress! 😍’
A third added, ‘Loving that frock.’
Alongside the pictures, the caption read, ‘Earlier this week, Her Majesty The Queen received the Order of St John’s first ever Service Medal in Gold during an audience with Professor Mark Compton, Lord Prior of the Order of St John.
‘The Queen is Sovereign Head of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem.
‘The Order of St John is a Royal Order of Chivalry first constituted as such by Royal Charter from Queen Victoria in 1888. The Order today is perhaps most well-known for its role with St John Ambulance and the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem, as well as delivering first aid, healthcare and support services in over 30 countries around the world through St John International.’
