I see HM wore the Williamson Pink on the left on her coat in House, Winnipeg, Canada, but when she took off her coat, she changed it to be on the right hand side - very unusual.

The Queen wore 3 outfits today in Winnipeg.
1. a lavender one out with Williamson pink brooch as GillW says.
2. a lemon top with pink floral skirt and paisley diamond brooch.
3. a blue outfit with Kent amethyst brooch. I found this unusual amethyst and blue outfit.
It was hot, 40C in Winnipeg for the 6 hours The Queen was there.

^ Both brooches are wonderful! Thanks for sharing! :)
Correct me if I'm wrong, we don't see the 2nd one very often. Right?

HM is clearly using a lot of QEQMs broocjes on this trip: the paisley, the shell and the maple leaf brooches.

It was a surprise to see HM addressing the United Nations wearing her aquamarine clip brooches. I haven't seen those in awhile. Also, does she never change pearl necklaces????? It seemed a bit yellow in the light.

She wears the aquamarine clips fairly regularly actually.... Mad Hattery! here at Ascot two weeks ago...

This has been a good one for Lil - she has had a lot of brooches on show, and only a couple of repeats. Am guessing the pink maple leaf brooch was a gift on this trip - and the Jubilee brooch got two outings, but one with the swag - much better like this I think.

Gill or Joye, do you know if The Queen has ever worn this brooch in public? Are there any photos known?

Thanks in advance

Bobby

Yes, this brooch has been worn at various times. Unlike GillW, I cannot give your dates, but my picture has The Queen wearing it , wearing a pink suit with checkered contrast.

Joye & GillW, thank you for the replies. Very much appreciated. Seems that this brooch is not among The Queen's favourites.

I believe the Cullinan III and IV combined brooch was worn for a photocall in 1986 on the occasion of her 60th birthday.

The Cullinan III and IV brooch has been on display at The Queen's Gallery Buckingham Palace, last year it still was when I was there last, so that might explain why it hasn't been worn in recent years.

Cullinan III and IV are not practical to wear. They are quite heavy and are not suitable I think for "ordinary" day wear. I would like to see it on her evening dress or so, but it is up to Her Majesty The Queen to wear it on occasions which are on quite a grande scale, perhaps we will see it when she celebrates her Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

Remember that Queen Mary wore the combined III and IV Cullinan for the weddings of her children, so special occasions.

The Queen and Prince Philip attended a second event today, they officially opened a Visitor Centre at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and there they also visited the Queen Mother Memorial Garden

Brooches in Hello

The new Canadian Hello has coverage of the recent visit and in it
is a special section on the Queen wearing her mother's brooches on this visit.
