Re: A tribute to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Edited by Dave on April 13, 2021, 10:31 am
I would like to extend my condolences to HM the Queen and her entire family. Maybe if they can do an exhibit on the DoE's mom Princess Andrew's jewels he may have received or inherited and maybe the hidden ones he gifted his dear wife' 'now that would be nice. We only get to see or hear about the very few ones he would have gifted HM. I can recollect a jewel he was reported to have given HM but I can't now remember what it looked like. All I can recall is that it was very colorful. The Iron Duke seemed to have served his purpose well as patriarch, husband and father. Let's hope that his descendants really take a leaf out of his book where service and commitment is concerned.
As a tribute, I wonder if posters would like to mention their favourite amongst the jewels Prince Philip either designed or is known to have given to QEII and or other members of his family.
For me the most striking jewel is the Grima ruby.
