Luncheon for The President of Kazakhstan

The Queen, with The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duke of York, welcomed The President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, to Buckingham Palace during his official visit to the United Kingdom. The President was accompanied by his daughter, Deputy Prime Minister Dariga Nazarbayeva.
This visit is not without its controversy, but sticking strictly to our wheelhouse, I was thrilled to see this brooch again. Thanks to some lovely readers, I've recently been able to update the entry for the Gold Filigree Brooch and rename it, because we've identified its provenance: a Diamond Jubilee present from Singapore!
