the history of her :
Duchess of York | Art deco leaf brooch with Sapphire, diamond, emerald, amethyst and ruby | Princess Birthday Gift
This photograph has been released to mark Accession Day 2022: the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s reign and the start of her Platinum Jubilee year.
Her Majesty is seen with one of her famous red boxes. Over the past 70 years, The Queen has received daily papers from her Private Secretaries, in person or via a red despatch box. The boxes hold documents updating Her Majesty on events in Parliament as well as overseas and Commonwealth matters, and State papers requiring her signature and Royal assent.
The Queen is wearing two diamond ivy leaf clips, which were a gift from The Queen Mother for the then Princess Elizabeth’s 21st birthday.
The clips were made for Mrs. Greville by Cartier – one in 1930 and the other in 1937. They were bequeathed to The Queen Mother in 1942 and given to The Queen as a 21st birthday present by her parents.
