While concerns are growing about her health, Elizabeth II has made another reassuring public appearance. This Monday, May 23, the monarch went to the flower show “RHS Chelsea Flower Show”, at the Royal Hospital in London. An official outing during which she wanted to pay tribute to her parents, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Elizabeth II excels in the art of sending messages. Mostly in a discreet but confident way, the one who is about to celebrate her platinum jubilee has several times paid tribute to her loved ones through her outfit and the accessories that accompany it. This is what she did this Monday, May 23, during a new public appearance. Spotted on “a golf-style buggy” to attend the “RHS Chelsea Flower Show”, which took place in London, the monarch took the opportunity to pay a touching tribute to her parents, as highlighted by the Daily Mail. During this official outing, the mother of Prince Charles wore on her pink coat a sumptuous flower brooch adorned with sapphire and rubies, which would have been given to her by her parents, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and George VI.
If in her collection, appear brooches that she wears regularly, this one, which obviously has a sentimental value, has not often been seen on the Queen of England. Still according to our British colleagues, this brooch composed of pink and blue sapphires would have been given to her on the occasion of her 19th birthday. A nice gift, when we know that this piece was manufactured by the house Cartier. We can imagine that the sovereign prefers to keep this valuable object in her jewelry box rather than wear it in public.
A “comfortable” trip for the queen
If she has voluntarily limited her public appearances recently, due to her fragile health, adjustments have been put in place, so that the queen can attend the flower show “RHS Chelsea Flower Show”, which was close to her heart. “Adjustments have been made for the Queen’s comfort,” Buckingham Palace said. As a reminder, Elizabeth II, who was spotted with a cane last January, confided in person about her mobility problems during an interview with Major General Eldon Millar: “As you can see, I can’t move.” So better safe than sorry.
