Queen Elizabeth: The Story Behind Princess Charlotte’s Jewel

7-year-old Princess Charlotte at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, wore her first brooch, a gift from her own great-grandmother.

The horseshoe-shaped diamond brooch was a tribute to Elizabeth’s love of horses and riding.

However, the pin has a long history.

The jewel belonged to the mother of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen Mother was first pictured wearing the pin in 1929. It is thought that she probably gave it to her eldest daughter, Elizabeth, because she had a special love for horses.

Queen Elizabeth then gave the diamond brooch to her great-granddaughter Charlotte.

The young princess wore the diamond pin on the left side of her black coat at the Queen’s funeral on Monday, honoring her late great-grandmother’s love of horses.

Queen Elizabeth was known for her impressive collection of brooches and her own jewelery was also worn by the female members of the royal family.

Charlotte’s mother, Kate Middleton, wore two stunning pieces that also belonged to Queen Elizabeth: pearl earrings and a choker with rows of pearls and a central diamond clasp, from the Queen’s personal collection.

In a similar style, royal wife Camilla wore Queen Victoria’s Hesse Diamond Jubilee brooch, a heirloom of the crown, while Sophie, Countess of Wessex completed her look with a black straw riding hat, as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth.
