This is definately wedding present from Carringtons, as proved by Baxter's photo.
It is not the Q. Mary gift, the feather is completely a different shape.
Lovely to see 2 new outfits for day 3 and 4.
So the brooches so far have been
Day 1 Cullinan V
Day 2 Hibiscus Q. Mum Aust. gift
Day Carringtons diamond and sapphire feather
Day 4 pair of aquamarine clips.

I really throught the brooch on Ladies Day was the one from Empress Eugenie. Could anyone help then? So, there are three "feathers" in this style. The one received when opening a bridge in Scotland, Empress Eugenie's feather and the Carrington one. Anyone able to compare it with pics. Thx

The Scottish bridge brooch is a spray of flowers, not a feather. The Empress Eugenie feather does not feature a coloured stone, but it has a large central diamond instead. I don't believe QEII has ever worn that one, as the ones I've seen in photos is always with the purple stone.

OK? thank you; then I have to make another page in my database, because I really thought that one was from Eugenie; so it is one presented by Carringtons. And who is that, the Carringtons?

Very unusual - HM wore the same brooch two consecutive days (the trefoil) for both Wimbledon and the day before for the Royal Festival Hall.

Yes indeed, I was not able to spot what brooch she wore with Prince William, but as you say, the trefoil. That makes that brooch the one in much use on its fifth wearing since 21 May. It must be one of provenance or special connection, I am sure.

Lovely to see the grapes-with-sapphire bow in Canada - looked beautiful on the bow-patterned white coat. Bet that was designed with that brooch in mind.

What an ugly brooch is the one with the maple leafs. It looks something "chinese" with the pink leafs and I don't like it. It certainly has something to do with Canada.

HM in the white coat and sapphire brooch is stunning, I love her in white and I love that brooch.

The other one seems to be enamel leaves with diamonds surround...hmm, not sure yet...whether its one of my favorites!

On the RJMB it was stated that this brooch was a gift to Her Majesty's mother when she toured Canada so it is part of the QEQM's collection.

In case you missed this - today HM wore the Cambridge pearl for her meeting with Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff

I stand corrected this was a brooch that was given to the Duchess of York, later Queen Mary in 1901. Sorry for the misinformation.
