The Queen, who was married to the Duke of Edinburgh for more than 70 years, joined her family today in Windsor Castle for her husband’s funeral. The monarch wore a stunning brooch from her collection along with a black coat and hat.
The Queen has been forced to keep apart from relatives due to Covid restrictions but joined members of the Royal Family for Prince Philip’s funeral today.
She wore her stunning Richmond Brooch, one that was inherited from her grandmother, Queen Mary.
It is also one of the largest in her collection and has worn it several times over the years.
The brooch, made by Hunt and Roskell, was given to Mary as a wedding present in 1893 by the town of Richmond.
Mary’s family, the Tecks, had lived at White Lodge in Richmond Park for more than two decades.
The brooch they offered to Mary was made of diamonds set with two pearls, a large round centre pearl, plus a detachable pear-shaped pearl drop.
For Prince Philip’s funeral today, the Queen opted to wear the brooch without the pear-shaped pearl.
Queen Mary first wore the brooch during her honeymoon at Osborne House.
