First Lady Michelle Obama donned a jacket fit for a queen when she visited with Britain’s monarch at an Olympics reception at Buckingham Palace.

Mrs. Obama wore a $6,800 J. Mendel cap-sleeve jacket with “white viscose techno crepe tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery,” The Washington Post blog the Reliable Source reported.

A press release from the company said the item, not yet in stores, is from the 2013 Resort collection. The retailer Moda Operandi lists the jacket at $6,800. The White House declined comment, the Post reported.
