Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom was back in her happy place on Saturday. Today, we’ve got a look at the jewels she wore for a day at the races at Ascot, plus the special honor she received during the visit.
While attending QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday, the Queen was presented with a special memento by her official representative at Ascot, Sir Francis Brooke. The memento, made by Asprey, was a gift to mark her induction into the British Champions Series Hall of Fame, the official Hall of Fame for British Flat racing. The Queen is the first person to be inducted into the hall of fame in the “special contributor” category, in recognition of her outstanding contribution to British Flat racing.
The Queen was warmly attired in a hat and coat made of cobalt blue tweed with black velvet trim for the races.
She wore her usual pearl and diamond earrings with her customary three-stranded pearl necklace, plus one more additional pearl and diamond jewel.
She finished off the look with the Pearl Triangle Brooch, which has been in her jewelry box since at least the 1950s. The jewel has a distinctive Art Deco design, with two pearls and a yellow diamond set in the center. It has been one of the workhorse pieces of her collection, worn on a variety of occasions with a range of colors.
