The Queen was seen with a playful dog-printed wash bag as she was driven from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace today.
Her Majesty, 93, who was chauffeur-driven to her desired destination, wrapped up warm in a khaki coloured jacket, and added a blue and white floral patterned silk scarf and sun glasses to complete the look.
While the Queen relaxed in the back seats of the car, she travelled alongside two pieces of luggage, including a red handbag, and a small black wash-bag covered with a playful dog print.
The royal is set to celebrate Prince Andrew’s 60th birthday with the rest of the family later on Wednesday this week.

Having spent the weekend in Windsor, the Queen could be seen gesturing as she spoke with staff while driving back to Buckingham Palace.
She brightened up an otherwise miserable day by adding a pop of bright pink lipstick to her otherwise natural makeup.
The Queen’s washbag appeared to have been tucked between the back seats of the car, and featured a playful dog print, with various different species on show.
She is known for her love of both dogs and horses, and has owned more than 30 corgis, many of them direct descendants of her first one, Susan – given to her as an 18th birthday present by her parents in 1944.

Her journey to Buckingham Palace comes ahead of Prince Andrew’s 60th birthday on Wednesday, when it is expected the family will come together, although it is not yet clear where they will meet.
In November it was reported the monarch has scrapped plans to host a party for Prince Andrew to mark his 60th birthday in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
Instead, the Queen is believed to be holding a ‘small family dinner’ to mark the milestone.
The Duke of York was sacked from his royal duties following a now-infamous Newsnight interview, after which he was accused of showing a lack of empathy with Epstein’s victims.

The Queen is said to be ‘privately supportive’ of her second son but also ‘deeply frustrated’ that the scandal is overshadowing the rest of the family’s work.
Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, will not return to the UK to celebrate with the rest of the family, but will send a gift and a video message to be played at his party, a source has claimed.
British media correspondent Neil Sean told Fox News it is an ‘open secret’ that the couple declined the invite to celebrate Harry’s uncle’s birthday.
‘It’s not very nice for the Queen as, whatever people say and think, [Andrew] is [still] her son and she wanted her close family around her,’ he said.
