The Queen’s Jewellery: daffodil brooch

Featuring the national emblem of Wales, this gold and silver brooch was only first noticed when it was painted!

Three daffodil flowers set in diamond leaves, the portrait it was depicted in was for the Welsh Rugby Union in honour of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Since it only appeared in 2012, it is a safe bet that it was a Jubilee gift.

On a State Visit to Germany this year, we got a good look at a few rarely seen brooches, including this one.

Victoria has a passion for British history and Constitutional Monarchy, hence her reasons for founding The Crown Chronicles. Her specialism is the Early Modern era, with particular emphasis on the Tudor and Stuart dynasties. She is also a keen reader (usually something historical), baker and shopper. Her motto is to have a full bookcase, but a fuller wardrobe. Miss Howard also works closely with the British Monarchist Foundation as their Press Secretary and Spokesman.
