Nice touch.
Yes indeed - she was at Weymouth in Dorset. We should have anticipated really! Nice to see this one other than on Poppy (Armistice) Day - it's HM's favourite for anchoring her poppies onto a black coat.

I love the little crown on the top of the brooch. Does this particular brooch have name? Has Her Majesty worn it before?

Can anyone tell me what the Queen´s dressmaker does to strengthen the material behind the brooches? Nothing shows and the really heavy brooches stay exactly straight and no drooping forward.
I have some very heavy gold brooches that I never wear because they seem to want to tear themselves out of whatever they are placed on.

There is an iron-on (heat fusible) interfacing that comes in light, medium and heavy weight which could be used to reinforce the fabric.

The Trooping the Colour insignia badge (worn customarily at Trooping the Colour each year recently), is actually a combined badge for the Guards and shows a combination of miniature insignia from the Grenadier Guards, the Coldstream Guards the Scots Guards and the Irish Guards. I believe it is one which Queen Mary also used to wear on occasions. Of course it is not about style, design or taste, but is worn in tribute to the Regiments. The Queen only started to wear this at the parade after she stopped riding on hoseback.

GillW May I know why you think this badge was Q. Mary's please?
What reference might you have please?
I know that The Queen is presented at varying intervals with regimental badges on jubilees, or anniversaries for the regiments.

I love that. It gives the brooch a whole new part of it's history and pays personal homage that she obviously feels is needed in lieu of her mounted participation.

This is more about protocol - when in uniform HM wore her badges and Orders, but now in "civvies" that would not be "correct", so it becomes appropriate to wear the badge of the Regiments as their Colonel in Chief.

I have a photo of the medallion as worn by Queen Mary but of course nowadays it is worn as a brooch rather than a pendant:

Gill, there's a better photo here (scroll down to the last picture near the bottom).
Maybe an understatement, but the brooch appears to contain quite a few carats of diamonds...

Thanks for the pointer Warren. Today I had the foresight to set to "record" - only to be gutted to hear the "expert" (HA!) say that the Cullinan V brooch "is SO rarely worn - we are REALLY lucky to see it here today"

Sigh - it's currently number one brooch in my database (due to some older research) with a recorded 133 wearings traced so far!!

I know i was quite annoyed to hear him it gets it wrong quite often in fact i was nearly tempted to email the BBC and inform them that this was one of the Queen's favourites brooches

I was at Royal Ascot at the First Day and I hope that these pictures will be of interest for 'Brooch watchers'.

I have to confess that I was a bit disappointed by The Queen's appearance. I don't like her choice on Opening Day. But anyway, I saw her from a very close distance and in the Royal Enclosure gardens I saw her and could bow to her and receive a smile, I was pictured with Princess Michael of Kent, greeted The Duchess of Cornwall and The Prince of Wales and followed the Princess Royal regularly from the Pre Parade ring to the Parade ring to inspect the horses and their jockeys.

It was a perfect day out and certainly one to remember. Now I am back at work, because my wallets are empty, because I really took all the aspects of Ascot: champagne (£ 17 / glass), betting on The Queen's dress (I choose green and it was yellow), ...
