Queen's Award for Enterprise Reception and Audience at Buckingham Palace

Starting off with a Cullinan, natch. This was Her Maj's choice for this event last year, too.

Earlier, The Queen received the Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, for an audience at Buckingham Palace.

Fitting her brooch to her prime minister adds another hefty amount of carats to the day's picture. The Australian Wattle was in order for the Australian PM, of course. (And, you'll notice, even it can barely do battle with those ubiquitous floral prints.)
