Did the Queen send Donald Trump a message with her jewellery?

Did the Queen make a dig at Trump with her brooches during his UK visit? People sure do seem to think so…

Some people express their political views through protests; others by their fashion choices. But if you’re part of the Royal Family then your political leanings remain unknown – or do they?

As one eagle-eyed Twitter user has discovered, the Queen might have been making her political views known through her jewellery choices during Donald Trump’s recent visit to the UK. Not once, but three times. 

“That by itself is amusing enough. She wore a brooch the Obamas gave her. But it gets better. It’s not AN American brooch, any would be funny. She chose THIS ONE. This one was purchased out-of-pocket by Michelle and Barack Obama and given to her as a personal gift,” she wrote. 

The following day, the Queen was spotted wearing a brooch given to her by Canada, a country which Trump is currently at odds with (one of many). Interestingly, the brooch was also in the shape of a snowflake.

“It’s called the Sapphire Jubilee brooch, and it was given to the Queen of England as a gift for ruling for eleven billion (okay, 65). From Canada. You know, who Trump’s been screaming about and insulting. The commonwealth country and one of the UK’s greatest allies. Them.”

And for the last day, she picked a brooch that she wore to the funeral of her father. Enough said, really. 

Maybe all three are just a coincidence? Maybe so, but it is known that the Queen picks her brooch in line with the theme of the day. For the wedding of Kate and William she opted for a true lovers knot brooch. And remember last year when she opted for an outfit in the same shades as the EU flag when she opened parliament?

We hear you loud and clear.
