Her Majesty has worn the brooch numerous times in Scotland to church at her beloved private estate of Balmoral.
Although the piece is a firm favourite of the Queen, there is actually little known about it, including where it is from and whether it was a give or a personal purchase by Her Majesty.
Later the Queen switched out the brooch for a badge, the Royal Regiment of Scotland Badge.
She is the Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and honoured this postion with the piece, which features the Lion Rampant of the Royal Standard of Scotland and the Saltire of St. Andrew.
The Queen’s brooches are multiple and have unique and intriguing histories.
Her bow brooches, fascinatingly, once belonged to another iconic British monarch, Queen Victoria.
