That is the Prince Albert Sapphire Brooch.

If you look at it closely, the diamonds are not placed as perfectly as they would be today. However, I think that makes it more appealing. The age of the complete piece is amazing. I know Princess Anne has a copy of this brooch. I don't know if the copy has these imperfections.

First...It's Princess Michael, she always wears big or go home over the top hats to grab attention at Ascot. This year though I can see her trying to distract from her eyepatch. Hope it's gone soon, as that means a Complete Recovery and healed from what was done to her eye, which I'm blanking on at the moment.

Second, I love that necklace she's got on today. I wonder what the cabochons are? They look like either a really pretty light jade or perhaps even agate. I thought it worked really well w/the colours of her outfit and the size of her hat and was a good balance of everything.

I certainly don't see any imperfections and the diamonds are very well set. I think the only thing you could say is:
  • The Albert Brooch is old, meaning it is not a modern brilliant cut
  • The central sapphire is huge
  • Each of the surrounding diamonds is huge
I think if the diamonds were smaller and they would snuggle closely together surrounding the sapphire. I think Anne's may be a more modern cut.

Note: The DM has photos of Harry at Ascot on day 2, however I do not think he was there as his shirt and tie are identical to day 1.

The York girls finally seem to be wearing grown-up clothes. Good to see them in real hats rather than those silly "fascinator" thingies. Beatrice looked very smart, though those shoes don't look very comfortable.

An ambulance for a horse? What is that?
Even dogs have hats at Ascot!
