Re: Princess Marie Louise. Provenance of brooch left to QEQM??
What a grand and outstanding brooch Beth. One wonders what else was bequeathed to QEQM that she simply has not bothered to wear. Princess Marie Louise as a granddaughter of QV apparently had a jewel collection suited for a Queen Consort or a daughter in law of a Queen.
I stumbled on this media item about a large brooch and pendant belonging to Princess Marie Louise. So far I have not found a photo of her at the event; nevertheless, the only item I can think which matches the description is the large brooch which was left to QEQM. What do others think?
Princess Marie Louise occasionally spoke to the press so it is possible that the information about the provenance of the jewel described is accurate. If so, the piece has an interesting history. Has anyone ever seen photos of Queen Victoria wearing the jewel? Or part of it?
