The Queen looked pretty in pink as she visited Wales today (October 14) with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Her Majesty wore a pink double-breasted coat and matching hat adorned with flowers for her first visit to Wales in five years.
Her outfit was completed with black shoes and gloves, pearls and a Welsh daffodil brooch.
For the second time this week she used a black walking stick to steady herself.
Could her choice of colour palette have been a nod to October’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness month?
Maybe, or perhaps it was just a lovely coincidence.

Why was The Queen in Wales?
The Queen was attending the sixth ceremonial opening of the Welsh Parliament, also known as the Senedd.
Her Majesty addressed Parliament in the Senedd Chamber.
She paid tribute to all those working tirelessly during the challenges faced during the global pandemic.
In her address the monarch said: “The Welsh people have much to be proud of.
“Over the next five years, I am sure you will continue to be inspired by their indomitable spirit, as you represent the interests of Wales and its people.”
She also praised the Welsh Parliament for holding the first virtual Government meeting during lockdown.
During the visit the Queen met the First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, and Welsh party leaders.
After the event she was seen laughing and smiling as she spoke with members of staff outside the building.
