28. Showing Up To Work In Baby Pink
Dressed up in baby pink, she took out The Queen Mother's Palm Leaf diamond brooch to decommission UK's largest warship. The brooch was one of the Queen Mother's favorite pieces of jewelry (which is Queen Elizabeth's mom,) and it was originally created for her by Cartier from stones already in her vault in 1938. She loved it so much she even wore it to the funeral of her husband, King George VI.

Queen Elizabeth got it in her inheritance, and it's one of her favorite brooches now, too.
