Queen Elizabeth looked resplendent in a blue outfit paired with a matching edgy hat on Tuesday. She was attending the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust along with her son Prince Charles in Kennington. The charity was founded by the prince in 1976.
The 89-year-old queen, who is known for her love of bold colors, pastel shade dresses and her head-turning style with fabulous hats, color-coordinated her ensemble for the occasion. The British monarch wore a vibrant blue coat dress and matching hat for the engagement.
The coat featured long sleeves and chucky blue buttons and high neckline. She teamed up her look with black gloves, carried a small matching handbag and wore black loafers. Elizabeth accessorized with pearl earrings, a three-string pearl necklace and a matching sapphire brooch.
However, it was her edgy blue hat that caught the attention. The asymmetric hat featured striking blue and black feathers. Elizabeth, who will celebrate her 90th birthday in April, completed her look with a slick of pink lipstick.
The queen was all smiles as she met students and people benefitted by the charity over the years. The 67-year-old Charles, meanwhile, looked dapper in a simple suit and trousers combo. He also matched his mother in blue with a blue pin-striped suit and a blue and black patterned tie.
Charles paired his outfit with a pale blue shirt and black and white chequered pocket square. The royal finished off his look with black lace-up shoes, gold watch and a small brooch pinned to his lapel. The queen attended The Prince’s Trust event to support the endeavour started by son when he was 27.

Meanwhile, the cake in red and white color scheme with a picture of the crown and “Prince’s Trust” written on it caught the fancy of the monarch. It was baked by La'tifah Atkinson-Campbell, 25, who also wrote “40 years” and “Happy Anniversary” written on it. Elizabeth and Charles cut the cake, but could not have it.
However, the queen asked the baker what was the cake made of and she replied Vanilla sponge and lemon buttercream. Elizabeth told that the cake cut very nicely and looked very soft. She also met The Prince’s Trust brand ambassador Damian Lewis and his wife Helen McCrory.
