When real-life Royalty meets fashion Royalty.

Queen Elizabeth II sat front row next to icon Anna Wintour Tuesday at London Fashion Week.

Wearing a powder blue Angela Kelly dress and jacket with black gloves, the 91-year-old was spotted chatting with the Vogue editor during British designer Richard Quinn’s show. This is the first time the Queen has attended a runway show during her reign and was a total surprise to the fashion world.

She showed up to present her inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, which is given to up-and-coming British designers with connections to the community.

Even though the Queen may be one of Anna Wintour’s most powerful buddies now, don’t expect her to remove her sunglasses anytime soon.
