State Visit Jewels: Elizabeth II in Germany (Part 2)


The German state visit continued this week with even more brooches on display. Let's dig in!



The second full day of the state visit started off with engagements in Frankfurt. The Queen wore another brooch that we recently saw at Royal Ascot: the diamond and emerald shamrock brooch that many believe was a gift from the Sultan of Oman.





Back in Berlin for a garden party at the British ambassador's residence, the Queen wore another repeat brooch from the French state visit: her mother's diamond and ruby floral spray brooch.



On Friday, the Queen greeted members of the public near the famous Brandenberg Gate in Berlin. With her yellow coat, she wore another brooch from the set of four believed to have been gifted by the Sultan of Oman: the diamond brooch in the shape of daffodils.



For their final official engagement of the state visit, the Queen and Prince Philip laid a wreath at the Bergen-Belsen memorial. On her gray outfit, she pinned the floral brooch made for her by Bronte Porcelain, one of the brooches that made its public debut in 2014. She wore the same brooch and outfit for her flight back to the UK. And that's it for the British/German state visit of 2015!
