Queen Elizabeth attended Richard Quinn’s fall 2018 presentation during London Fashion Week. Her Royal Highness was on hand to present the emerging designer with the first-ever Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. The award will be given to designers who “show exceptional talent and originality while demonstrating value to the community and/or strong sustainable policies.”
But it gets even better: Not only did the Queen attend Quinn’s show, but she had the best front row seat, and neigbour ever. The Sunday Times Style noted the the historic event for Instagram — captioning it: “So the Queen just sat FROW at @richardquinn1 and that is completely normal. HM made a surprise appearance at #LFW to present Quinn with the new Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. Amazing.”
The Queen was seated next to a different sort of royalty, Anna Wintour. This sent the internet into a meltdown. We wonder what they were chatting about. Hilarious memes have gone viral about this exact moment. This will definitely go down in history.
