Re: Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Jewels worn in South Africa. Large diamond floral brooch
Another jewel which made a spectacular appearance in South Africa was the large diamond floral brooch which Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother later gave to Princess Margaret.
I suspect that this brooch was part of Mrs Greville's collection.
In the brighter sun light of Cape Town this brooch would have ensured all eyes were focused on HM.
I would be tempted to say that HM wore this brooch for the first time in public in South Africa -- except
that this photo from Getty is dated by them as 12 December 1946.
I feel that the photo below shows HM wearing the large diamond floral brooch. What do others think? Was HM wearing the large diamond floral brooch?
