Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most recognizable people in the world. Hence her fashion choices never go unnoticed. She remains famously loyal to one piece of jewelry, which is the brooch.

Welcoming present for the Queen

Last year, as part of activities marking the start of summer vacation in Balmoral Castle, Her Majesty inspected a guard of honor by the Balaklava Company, The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and their mascot, the Shetland Pony Cpl Cruachan IV.

But just before Her Majesty passed by, the Shetland Pony (Cruachan IV), who has a history of being a little naughty behavior, decided to relieve himself. The Queen was seen with a hand to her nose, trying to avoid the smell.

Rare fashion choice

The Queen of England on Saturday made a very rare fashion choice when she attended the Newbury races in Berkshire without wearing a brooch. Her Majesty is rarely seen without a shiny, big brooch pinned to her jacket of choice. She will even shift it from her coat to her dress when she takes off her coat. 

Though her outfits are usually chosen by her dresser, the Queen reportedly decides which brooch to wear. This surprising move left royal fans confused.

Her choice of not wearing a brooch is coming at a time when the royal baby and Brexit are at the forefront of everyone's minds. This has led fans asking if the Queen is making a (fashion) statement on either issue. 

However, this isn't the first time that there has been speculation over the Queen’s brooches. 

Fans had this to say

Why do you think the Queen decided not to wear a brooch? We would love to hear your thoughts.
