The Queen seemed to display a secret gesture of support for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan when she stepped out yesterday morning.
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 (opens in new tab).
‘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.
‘Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family,’ she continued.
‘I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family’.
‘It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life’.
