Queen Elizabeth II was fabulously fashionable in a fuchsia suit as she met with World War II veterans during the 75th D-Day commemorations on Wednesday.

Her Majesty looked flawless wearing a long buttoned jacket and skirt, with matching hat and her signature pearl jewellery.

The 93-year-old monarch was accompanied by her son Prince Charles, British Prime Minister Theresa May, American President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump.

The First Lady looked elegant in a full length wool coat from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s line The Row and an elegant asymmetric disc hat by royal milliner Philip Treacy, Daily Mail reports.

Three hundred veterans attended the D-Day commemorations to listen to Queen Elizabeth deliver a short but powerful speech in which she quoted her father, King George VI, and noted the “heroism, courage and sacrifice” of the soldiers who lost their lives in WWII.

Her Majesty looked in high spirits as she shared jokes with veterans and chatted with President Trump on the final day of his state visit to Britain, though at one point HM looked less than amused with the conversation.
