I did - however - notice another Minoru brooch in the Royal Collection:
Its a circle of gold, with diamonds, sapphires and rubies - apparently aquired by King George V in the years 1908-10 (which would have been when he was Prince of Wales).
Thank you Torkel.
You are correct - the brooch worn by Queen Camilla cannot be the one worn by Queen Mary

3. Edward VII's horse Minoru won the Derby in 1909.
4. It stands to reason that the Minoru brooch was made after the 1909 Derby.

This brooch was made circa 1909
