The Red Flower Posy Brooch

The Red Flower Posy Brooch
This brooch, a posy of small red flowers (possibly of rubies, or another material) on a long stem, is often said to have been a gift from the Duke of Edinburgh in the 1960s. It may have been in the Queen's collection for decades, but it is only rarely worn; in recent years, it has been paired with the same dark red coat and hat.
