The Queen wore a stunning sapphire and ruby brooch to a flower show on May 23, 2022.
The jewel, made up of pink and blue sapphires, was pinned to the collar of her pretty pink coat.
This brooch, which Elizabeth II rarely wears, is a gift from her parents for her 19th birthday.
The Queen of England likes to accessorize her colorful outfits with floral and precious brooches. For her last public appearance, May 23, 2022, Elizabeth II pinned a flower brooch made up of pink and blue sapphires to the collar of her pretty pink coat, notes the Daily Mail. The British daily explains that the monarch has rarely released this accessory with great sentimental value. The jewel signed Cartier was offered to him for his 19th birthday, on April 21, 1945, by his parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. At a time when she was not yet on the throne and the end of the Second World War sounded.
A brooch worn by Elizabeth II once a decade
Elizabeth II last wore this very special brooch during her tour of Australia in 2011. Prior to that, she released the beloved accessory on her 1990 Christmas show, reports the Daily Mail. The public appearances of the 96-year-old queen are becoming increasingly rare. Physically weakened since contracting Covid-19 last February, she was taking part in the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, at the Royal Hospital, London, aboard her high-end golf carts, already nicknamed the “Rolls Royce”. Elizabeth II is patron of the Royal Horticultural Society.
National celebrations will take place from June 2 to 5 to celebrate his 70 years of reign. Arrangements have been made to keep her in shape ahead of these highly anticipated festivities around her Platinum Jubilee. But it has already been announced that the Queen of England will not attend the military salute of “Trooping the Colour” which takes place every year in early June to celebrate the official birthday of the British sovereign. This tradition dates back to 1748 and Elizabeth II had never missed this unmissable event. She will be represented by Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
