QUEEN ELIZABETH II has made an impromptu visit to London Fashion Week this afternoon.

Delighted hat maker Harvy Santos, who spoke to her, said: "Darling, I thought I was going to be the only queen here".

The award itself was designed by Angela Kelly, inspired by the Queen Elizabeth rose, and has been hand-produced by Lucy Price at Bauhinia Studios in Birmingham's famous jewellery quarter.

It will be given annually to an emerging British fashion designer who shows exceptional talent and originality, whilst demonstrating value to the community and/or strong sustainable policies, the statement added.

Her Majesty thanked the British Fashion Council for nominating Quinn-who was handpicked by Rush and Vogue's Sarah Mower, the BFC's ambassador for emerging talent-and paid tribute to Britain's storied fashion history.

The queen didn't bother with the statement stiletto heels favored by numerous younger fashionistas, opting for sensible dark low-heeled court shoes for the awards presentation.

Shortly after the fashion show, Her Majesty was given a tour of the British Fashion Council showrooms, where she got a firsthand look at the displays and was able to meet with various designers.

Wintour has been busy with the royal family this week, meeting with the Duchess of Cambridge and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, at the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange Reception at Buckingham Palace on Monday.

"Throughout your reign you have embraced fashion, using its power of diplomacy to communicate understanding between cultures and nations", she said as she addressed the monarch and the audience.
