    Duchess Kate was seen wearing The Codebreakers Brooch, an elegant pin that was designed to honour the work of codebreakers who decrypted enemy messages during the Second World War.

    It is thought that the Duchess wore the pin to honour several of her own family members who acted as codebreakers during the Second World War.

    The royal’s grandmother Valerie Glassborow, as well as Valerie’s twin sister Mary and her great-aunt all served as codebreakers at Bletchley Park.

    The stunning brooch is on sale at The Poppy Shop website for £29.99.

    The description reads, ‘Inspired by the rotors of the Enigma machines, from which Allied cryptologists successfully decrypted a vast number of enemy messages during the Second World War, the Codebreakers brooch is an extraordinary tribute to the work of those in signal intelligence.

    ‘Each elegant brooch comes with a certificate to remember one of the 13,000 men and women on the Bletchley Park Roll of Honour and is presented in a keepsake box’.

    Customers who buy the brooch will also receive a certificate to remember one of the 13,000 men and women.
