Queen of England wears rare diamond butterfly brooch

The 95 year old matriarch was sporting a 1947 diamond and ruby butterfly brooch she received as a wedding gift.


"The Queen wore a rarely-seen diamond and ruby brooch she received as a wedding gift for public engagement days before what would have been the Duke's 100th birthday.

The monarch, 95, donned the glittering butterfly brooch as she held a virtual audience to receive Ambassador from the Republic of South Sudan yesterday.

The heirloom was a gift from the Dowager Countess of Onslow at her wedding to the late Prince Philip, in 1947 and is rarely worn by the royal."
