The 91-year-old royal and the 68-year-old editor-in-chief of Vogue were seen chatting before the presentation began. And in true royal form, the Queen even received a comfy cushion to sit on.
Queen Elizabeth II was on hand to present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
The special award, initiated in recognition of the role the fashion industry plays in society and diplomacy, will be awarded annually to an emerging British fashion designer who shows exceptional talent and originality, while demonstrating value to the community and/or strong sustainable policies, according to the palace.
FYI: Queen Elizabeth is wearing a dress by Angela Kelly.
