We're stepping deep into a far more adventurous period of millinery for Her Majesty here, by the way. And if you love a bit of ridiculous retro headgear (and who doesn't love that?!), I have just a few glorious examples for you:
Anyway, on to the brooches: the Dorset Bow was big on this trip, and on the left there, we have the Modern Ruby Brooch. The newsboy-style cap with bow at the beginning was accompanied by the complete Teck Corsage Brooch, which has now become such a rare sight.
For another gala event (far left above), Her Maj put on the full sparkle with Queen Alexandra's Kokoshnik Tiara, a smaller pair of diamond earrings, the George VI Festoon Necklace, the True Lover's Knot Brooch, and Queen Victoria's Diamond Bracelet. And for another gala event (center above), she selected the True Lover's Knot Brooch again and paired it with her George VI and Modern Sapphire Set (tiara, earrings, necklace, bracelet). The tiara and bracelet were fresh adds to her collection at this time.

The upcoming visit won't be anything near a three tiara affair, but there is one state banquet on the agenda with promises for some sparkle.
