Queen Elizabeth II sits next to Anna Wintour (right) as they views Richard Quinn's runway show before presenting him with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design as she visits London Fashion Week's BFC Show Space in central London.

Can we just talk about THE QUEEN being at LFW?

I know, I know, pictures of this have been flying around since yesterday morning, but I couldn’t let this one go without comment. Our wonderful Queen, looking completely baffled in the front row, sat next to no other than the Queen of Fashion, Anna Wintour.

It’s the first time Queen Liz has been to London Fashion Week, and it seems a strange show for her to have popped up at, seeing as the models were all decked out in bold, bright prints and bike helmets…neither of which are synonymous with the Monarchs personal style…but there was good reason. She was there to present the show’s Designer,┬áRichard Quinn, with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to LFW, but I think I’d have fallen off my chair if I’d been sitting next to her Royal Highness. Have to wonder what her first words were in the car on the way home, don’t you? Oh, to be a fly on that wall…
