From the IT live blog: "She is wearing an orchid brooch on her coat, a gift from Mappin Webb and Waterford for the 60th anniversary of coronation. The flowers are hand cut Waterford crystal, the brooch contains 66 diamonds and rose gold stamens."
see: LIVE: State Visit | The Irish Times

And here is a nice close up of the brooch. Wowsers - that took some skill!

Oh - and for those like me that had no idea, Mappin and Webb is a Jeweler.

It's a very pretty and unusual piece - I hope we see it worn often.

New Brooch alert!
HM in Chelmsford today (06 May 2014).
I don't recognise this one - any ideas at all? Something I've missed...?

The Queen was painted wearing this brooch in a portrait commissioned by the Welsh Rugby Union.

Therefore, I would have to assume that the flowers are daffodils (a Welsh national emblem often seen on St. David's Day).

Perhaps the brooch was a Diamond Jubilee or 60th Coronation gift from the Welsh Rugby Union???

Hopefully we will find out more in the next few days.

Cheers!
Bryce

I wonder who was more disappointed by the portrait- the Queen or those who commissioned it? It's really not a good likeness at all.

Generally, this style of portraiture does not appeal to me, but I like this one.

That portrait is hideous, and I'm being kind.

I paint, and all artist have a certain style. Unless the artist went in a completely different direction, the party that commissioned the portrait had some idea of what they were getting. I am not particularly fond of this portrait, it looks like a bad caricature.

Thank you, I see it has been worn quite a few times, but it has passed me by. A very beautiful brooch.

Wow- all her brooches today have been wows.
What can you say? She's in France.
I'm never going to complain. They've all been stunning.
