Princess Anne's stunning gold brooch in Estonia exudes 'affection' and 'love', a top UK jewelry expert has revealed. 

The Princess Royal traveled to Tallinn on Tuesday for a formal meeting with President Alar Karis, just a week after she visited Greece for the funeral of King Constantine II. The 74-year-old has been joined by her husband, Sir Timothy Laurence, for her latest overseas trip, which hopes to strengthen ties between Estonia and the United Kingdom. 

The Queen's only daughter once again nailed formal elegance, donning a delicate gold brooch for her reception with President Alar Karis at the Kadriorg Palace yesterday. As per tradition with female members of the Royal Family, Princess Anne's floral badge is brimming with important symbolism. 

"Flowers have long been considered a symbol of affection, and flowers used in jewelry are no different," explains ethical jewelry expert, Jessica Flinn Allen. "They can represent feelings of love, happiness, and many other emotions."

Princess Anne's gold brooch, which she previously wore in 2021 to open Hartley Hospital, a mental health inpatient unit in Southport, also reflects the royal's 'understated style.' While Queen Elizabeth II was known for wearing 'spectacular and eye-catching' brooches with 'diamonds and colorful gemstones', the hardworking Princess Royal prefers to keep things simple, explains Flinn Allen. 

Always one to prioritize practicality in her style, Anne teamed her flowery badge with a patterned silk scarf, a brown coat, a pair of leather gloves, and comfortable boots. 

The 72-year-old has been on a whirlwind tour as of late, appearing in Scotland on Thursday to re-open the newly refurbished Lady Haig's Poppy Factory in Edinburgh and Cyprus earlier in the month. The exciting trip to Cumbria saw Princess Anne borrowing outfit tips from Meghan Markle, as she wore the same stylish coat and silk scarf combo from her engagement with the Riding for the Disabled Association in November 2021.

Royal fans have been quick to hail the mother-of-two online for her work ethic, with one person even writing, "The GOAT couple is busy once again minimum coverage they rock!"
