Battle of Britain Anniversary Commemoration

The British royals were out and about on Friday at a service to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The Queen chose one of her favorite brooches (and mine) for the occasion: the Jardine Star Brooch. Read all about this sparkly bit of bling over here!

The Countess of Wessex also attended the commemoration. She charmed the vets while wearing the pair of pearl cluster earrings that have become a staple in her jewelry wardrobe of late.

One more senior royal lady was present for the anniversary: Princess Alexandra, though so far I've only been able to present long-view photos of her. She wore light blue with earrings and a brooch.

The men of the royal family were out in all of their shining medals and military braids, too. Here's the Duke of Edinburgh with the Queen.

And the Earl of Wessex with Sophie.

The Duke of Cambridge was present, too -- here he is with his grandparents.

The Queen's cousins, the Duke of Kent and Prince Michael of Kent, are on the far right of this picture, standing beside the Duke of York.

And the Duke of Gloucester is standing to the far right of this picture, beside Princess Alexandra.
