Queen Elizabeth II made a surprise appearance at London Fashion Week sitting FROW alongside fashion royalty, Anna Wintour and her expressions are everything

The reigning Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II just proved it's never too late to join (or rule) the style set - at 91 years old, Queen Elizabeth made an appearance at London Fashion Week sitting alongside the reigning queen of fashion, Anna Wintour at designer Richard Quinn's runway show.

Her Majesty is certainly not a regular fashion week attendee but is known for her signature style of tone-on-tone tailored dress coats, classic two-piece suits in pastel hues, gloves and matching hats. And while her wardrobe may not set the style agenda, she always looks effortlessly regal as befits the Queen of England.

Although... from her animated range of expressions during the runway show, perhaps Her Majesty might become a fashion week regular?

According to Vanity Fair, the Queen attended Quinn's show to present the Central Saint Martins Fashion MA graduate with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, but the palace didn't announce her attendance in advance making for the best surprise appearance ever.

Her Majesty sat between two of fashion's royalty, Anna Wintour, editorial director of Condé Nast and Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, with her dressmaker, Angela Kelly, seated on the other side of Wintour. 

People reports the Queen hit the catwalk to present the award to Quinn and gave a short, regal speech noting the reason for the creation of the award, "As a tribute to the industry, and as my legacy to all those who have contributed to British fashion, I would like to present this award for new, young talent. I would like to thank the British Fashion Council for selecting the first winner - Richard Quinn."
