Her Majesty wore the glittering butterfly brooch during the speech. It was given to her by the Dowager Countess Of Onslow in 1947 at her wedding. The brooch is rarely worn.

It was perfectly synchronized with a photograph of Prince Philip, surrounded by Monarch butterflies and placed behind her. This photo was taken in Mexico in 1998.

The monarch has only worn the piece a handful of time in the past couple of years. He last opted for the brooch for a virtual marriage days before Prince Philip’s 100th Birthday.

The brooch was also worn by her at a Sandringham church service in 2019.

The Queen had not worn the brooch since 2012 when she visited the Sandringham Women’s Institute.

An image was placed behind her at a table of Prince Philip who visited Mexico in February 1988.
