On Wednesday, the 94-year-old monarch attended her first public engagement of the year to mark the Centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force. According to the Royal Family’s official Instagram account, Her Majesty visited the CWGC Air Forces Memorial in Surrey. During the outing, she viewed some of 1,300 names of Royal Australian Air Force personnel who have lost their lives in service of their country at the Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede. “It’s a very long time since I’ve been here,” Elizabeth said when she arrived, per Vanity Fair.
And while we were incredibly excited to see Liz, who is set to celebrate a birthday at the end of the month, getting back to in-person business, it was her spring-ready outfit that really caught our attention. For the occasion, the royal opted for a light green coat and a matching wide-brimmed hat decorated with yellow tulips. She topped off her look with a pair of black gloves, a pearl necklace, black shoes and a Launer handbag. Oh, and we can’t forget to point out her Australian wattle brooch—the national flower of Australia. How festive.
If you’re wondering where her mask is, don’t fret—she was not required to wear one by the government because the event was outside. In addition, the monarch has already received the COVID-19 vaccine and made sure to follow all guidelines.
We’re officially declaring this green the color of spring.
