IT was perhaps the biggest royal gathering since Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

Dozens of queens from Red Hat Society chapters across Queensland travelled to Redbank Plains last week to attend a royal event.

Dressed in their iconic red and purple outfits and covered in royal bling, the regal ladies met for the coronation of their society's newest queen, Lynette Hoskins-Meech.

The 69-year-old, who joined the organisation last year, recently established a new chapter in the Redbank Plains area.

As such, she secured her self-proclaimed royal title as Queen of the Classy Ladies of Redbank.

Among those to attend the induction was Queen Sam Butterfield of Bonzer Sheilas in Ipswich who presided over the coronation.

Mrs Butterfield, who has been a member for six years, said the ceremony was a lot of fun and was pleased to see the establishment of more Red Hat Society chapters.

"The groups encourage ladies aged 50 and older to get out and enjoy themselves rather than sit at home and watch television," she said.

The Red Hat Society is a global network of women who greet middle age with humour, amusement and energy.

They reunite with her youth by playing dress-ups and having tea parties.
