February Investitures and Audiences

The Queen held several investitures and audiences in February.

Of course we assume there are multiple brooches here as well, despite not being able to see them in every case.

February 16: Investiture at Buckingham Palace
No brooch here, but plenty of gold buttons. (This is the dress that goes with the Queen's well-known purple and gold button coat.)

February 17: Audiences and Presentation of the Statues of the Abbey to the Dean and Chapter of Westminster Abbey
I can't make this one out, though it certainly does look intricate.

This looks in shape like the Cullinan V brooch, though it looks a little too small, scale-wise.
