    The monarch was spotted yesterday morning as she attended a church service at St Peter and St Pail church in Norfolk.

    And dressed in her signature brightly-coloured co-ord look, Queen Elizabeth II seemed to make a sweet gesture of support to her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan with a particular part of her outfit.

    The Queen was seen in a bright blue coat with a matching hat, but chose to finish of her look with a particularly poignant brooch.

    The sparkly snowflake brooch that the monarch wore on her outfit is composed of 48 rare Canadian sapphires that are surrounded by diamonds.

    Given to her back in 2017 to mark her 65th year on the throne, the jewel was presented to her as a gift on behalf of the Canadian population from former Canadian Governer-General David Johnston.

    The outfit move was seemingly a show of support towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are now living over in Canada with nine-month-old son Archie.

    This isn’t the first time that the Queen has supported the pair since their controversial split from the Royal Family a just last month she spoke of how she was ‘particularly proud’ of Duchess Meghan.

    Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family,’ the Queen said in a statement.
