The Queen wore a floral brooch she received as a wedding gift to appear at Buckingham Palace – .


The Queen wore a floral diamond brooch she received as a wedding gift for her first public engagement at Buckingham Palace since the death of her husband, Prince Philip.

Last week, the monarch, 95, kicked off the Commonwealth Games relay at her London residence ahead of the Birmingham 2022 event.

The royal donned a stylish orange coat with a matching hat with floral details for the event on the forecourt on Thursday.

She chose to wear Cartier’s sparkling pink brooch for the event, which was given to her by the Nizam of Hyderabad on the occasion of her marriage to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947.

It was the Queen’s first major engagement at Buckingham Palace since Prince Philip’s death in April. She returned to her Berkshire home earlier this week after a summer at Balmoral.

Among the Queen’s many wedding gifts was a stunning tiara and Cartier necklace from the Nizam of Hyderabad, an Indian monarch and one of the richest jewelry collectors in the world.

The tiara, which cost £ 5,000 in 1947 (equivalent to £ 189,000 today), was set with 1,033 diamonds and featured three removable rose-shaped pins.

Oddly, despite his generosity, the Nizam was not invited to the wedding.

The Queen has worn her gift several times in 25 years, including on that visit to the Norwegian Embassy in 1951, but broke it in 1973 and asked the then-jeweler Garrard to make a new tiara.

She still wears the matching necklace, which she loaned to the Duchess of Cambridge in 2014.

The royal poignantly wore the diamond flower brooch for her first public engagement since the funeral of her husband, Prince Philip, in April.

On Thursday, Her Majesty, who was accompanied by her youngest son Prince Edward, placed her message in the wand, before Paralympic gold medalist Kadeena Cox left to wear the symbol on the first leg of her journey.

The relay of 7,500 carriers will take over for a 90,000-mile journey through 72 nations and Commonwealth territories over 294 days.

The monarch’s message has been automatically sealed in the ‘smart’ stick, enhanced with cutting-edge technology, and will be read at the Games opening ceremony in Birmingham on July 28, 2022.

The Queen is the godmother of the Commonwealth Games Federation and was joined at the ceremony by the institution’s vice-godfather, the Earl of Wessex.

Representatives of the Commonwealth Games Federation, grassroots sports organizations in the West Midlands and athletes participating in the Games were in attendance.

It was the first time the Queen had been seen since news of her ruler friend from Dubai was responsible for an illegal phone hack in the UK.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was able to spy on parliamentary emails from conservative counterpart and former royal lawyer Fiona Shackleton.

Earlier this week, it emerged that Sheikh Mohammed also hacked into the iPhone of Ms Shackleton’s client, Princess Haya, his wife who had fled to Britain out of fear for her life and that of her staff. .
