The Queen’s Jewellery: three thistle brooch

This brooch features three thistles with diamonds and gold and silver, possibly a white metal, for the leaves.

The Press Association, according to From Her Majesty’s Jewel Vault, reported the brooch was a gift from the Sultan of Oman, part of a set of four given to Her Majesty. It is likely, as FHMJV posits, that the other three depict representations of the other nations of the UK, with this brooch using the flower of Scotland. It first appeared in 2012, likely making it a Jubilee gift.

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.
