If your referring to the church service it looks like Her Majesty is wearing her Cartier Aquamarine clips. They seem to be a favorite and I think they're beautiful.

I have always wanted to hold the shell brooch ( well all of the brooches actually) but this brooch is so thick with diamonds I would love to move it in the light to see it in its glory!!!!!

I've just seen that photo of the Queen in ascot (the photo in the carriage with Prince Philip) Prince Andrew has his very own Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot (with a blonde AND a brunette) | Mail Online
Maybe the brooch is one of Queen Alexandra's stars?

It doesn't look like it. Maybe the sunburst?

I believe that it is the Lady Jardine's brooch (correct if I am wrong on anything including spelling). It is one of my favorite brooches that HM has.

Quite so - this is the Jardine Star - one of the Queens favourites and frequently worn.

The Queen wore a brooch which is not that often seen. She wore it during her visit to Northumberland on the light purple, lavender outfit. I think it is the diamond spray brooch with amethyst toppings which she received in 1960 when she opened a bridge. Most recently she wore it, I think, when she sported her 'black' eye in the rain with the Royal Irish Regiment on its disbandment quite a while ago now. 2005?

Can anyone identify the brooch she wore during her visit to Trinity College on 17 May? Here's a photo.
Prince Philip designed and commissioned the brooch for one of HM's birthdays. Can't remember when, probably late 70s, early 80s. As far as I know it doesn't have a name.

Almost right: It was designed and made by Andrew Grima - "He (Grima) went on to win international prize after prize as Hughes took him round the world to meet the rich and famous, who adored his avant-garde Jewellery. But it wasn't until he met the Queen in 1966 that his success in England was guaranteed.

The meeting came after the Duke of Edinburgh chose a stunning Grima brooch, made of carved rubies from an Indian head ornament, mounted on molten gold and diamonds, to give to the Queen. It was one of 12 pieces which, as a collection, had won the 1966 Duke of Edinburgh's Prize for Elegant Design."

Extract from an obituary on Grima.

I think it is often just known as The Grima.

This is a brooch I haven't seen before and it's difficult to make out exactly what it is or what it's made of:
