I've never seen this either, one newspaper described it as a brooch made of Swarovski crystals. This must be a new addition, perhaps a gift from the Irish President? I honestly don't know.

Her Majesty has worn another beautiful brooch on her last day in Ireland, today, formed by two diamond circlets with an emerald in the centre:

HM's brooch looks like the top part of Queen Mary's brooch that used 2 of the Cambridge emeralds. Can anyone confirm?

it looks a little too big for that, but maybe someone else knows for sure?

Can anyone identify the brooch she wore during her visit to Trinity College on 17 May? Here's a photo.

I am not sure whether the following observation actually takes the discussion any further forward, as it is of couse speculation, but I have now had the opportunity of discussing this with a friend who went to the Newmarket Visit and she tells me that from her own observations, it APPEARED that the 'flowers' decoration on HM's hat was actually 'added' and that it was mounted on a form of 'stick pin', which was secured by the 'silver blob' that you can see. The Hat itself was apparently entirely blue, with its integral decoration being the 'blue bow-type that you can see. The flowers that had been added in fact echo the colours just visible in the Queen's dress......[which means, I suppose, that consistent with the Queen's desire for economy, she could then appear with a new decoration on the hat to reflect the colours of another dress.

Please take a look again at the photo and hopefully you will see what my friend means....

The emerald brooch is the Cambridge emerald without the emerald drop.

The day 2 brooch is the ruby cabochon brooch gift from Princ4e Philip.

Surfing the net I've found that brooch of Queen Victoria. They say it's still in possession of the current queen, but I think I've neer seen it on her. Do you know if Her Majesty has worn it recently?

The waterfall brooch used to be worn by the Queen Mother, but I have no sighting of it being worn by the Queen since her mother died - sadly, as I really love it and it would be great to see it appear again - Ascot would be a good chance!

For the Trooping the Color brooch, check the link in post #356. It appears to be the 8th one on the attachment. It appears to be either a diamond military badge or an order of the garter type badge. It seems to have to garter motto around the edge. Sorry my computer skills aren't good enough to attach it here.

THis is the Guards badge, worn every Trooping the Colour for about the last 10 years, or since The Queen has ridden in the landau.
