The Maple Leaf Brooch

The Maple Leaf Brooch
Originally owned by The Queen Mother, this was loaned to Princess Elizabeth for her trip to Canada in 1951; now that she owns it after her mother’s passing, The Queen has in turn loaned it to The Duchess of Cornwall (for her first Canadian trip) and The Duchess of Cambridge (for her first and second Canadian trips). It makes appearances on The Queen at distinctly Canadian events. Read more at Order of Splendor.
