I'm still racking my pea size brain trying to figure out how these are stored, I mean she has so many brooches. You would think if they weren't all laid out in a velvet drawer how could you remember? I think I would love that job!! "Brooch Layer Outer"

But I suspect that is just how they are stored..... in velvet lined drawers and cabinets.

Yes, Muriel! It works well against the turquoise coat! Really outstanding!

IMO, these brooches are much larger than the aquamarine clips.

The aquamarine clips came out for the fourth time this year (with a first wearing only in June). Last year, the aquamarine clips came out only once, so I think Her Majesty The Queen is favouring them this year.

Brooch Alert at Buckingham Palace on 19 July 2010:
Is that a brooch from Queen Mary, the triple drop brooch? I am sure this is one we have not seen for many years.

It's wonderful. HM really knows how to match her brooches and the above photo proves this once again.

Yes, as I said, a brooch originally given to the then Princess May of Teck, the later Queen Mary as a wedding present by the Women of Hampshire. This comes in a harebell design with three drops of which the central one is a pearl. I think it has come out very rarely in the recent years.

Cool

You're right, the Queen has rarely worn this brooch in the last few years and it's very beautiful....as are all Her Majesty's brooches. Perhaps we'll see it a little more often, I hope so.

Many thanks for the information, QueenElizabeth. Any recent stats on the last usage of this brooch from our resident experts?

The last usage of the brooch was I think last year when she wore it for an indoor reception at Buckingham Palace. But I am not able to say the exact date now, but will post it tomorrow; but anyway, the brooch has not seen the daylight for quite a while, because the brooch was used last year and some days ago actually inside the Palace.

As promised, the Women of Hampshire 'Harebell' brooch, worn on Monday at Buckingham Palace was worn last year as well at a Reception at Buckingham Palace on 15 October 2009 for the Overseas Chief Justices.

From the video of HM reviewing the opening of the upcoming 2010 BP summer exhibition, she wore the harebells for that too (on a very bright cerise dress)
