My favorites are the Botswana flower brooch, and the new flower brooch at the garden party.

HM looks so lovely in the pink outfit and hat! What wonderful pictures of such an important time in our history to honor all the men who died for freedom and peace. May they long be remembered for the greatest gift to us, their lives!

I don't think I've ever seen that Turkish waterfall brooch; it's just phenomenal! HM is like an assembly line with all these magnificent brooches on display, one after the other.

It was only the second time that HM wore the Turkish waterfall brooch. The first time was at the Turkish state banquet in London a few years ago.

The Turkish waterfall/fringe brooch was one of Queen Victoria's brooches and has since passed through the gem collections of all the Queens since then. It is a really stunning piece, and I love it. I wish we could see HM wear it more often.

This morning HM is wearing the Irish Blossom on a beige jacket, for the opening of the flower marked in Paris, named in her honour.

Thanks for the thumbnail, Warren. The brooch is huge; those diamonds, especially the central one, are jaw-dropping.

It seems so much bigger to me than it did previously. On HM's lovely green coat it is really a very substantial piece.

Excellent copies of this brooch are available from the Royal Collection shop. They are just as large & impressive and really make a statement - I get loads of comments & compliments when I wear mine - people love it
