Queen Elizabeth II spanks Trump with Brooches

Royal watchers are suggesting that Queen Elizabeth II picked her bling to make a subtle statement against president Trump. The Queen wore a brooch that was a gift from former US President Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle when they visited in 2011. It was purchased out-of-pocket by Michelle and Barack Obama and given to her as a personal gift.

When the Queen met with Trump last Friday, she wore a brooch made famous at her father King George IV’s funeral.

The third brooch she wore was the Sapphire Jubilee Brooch, a gift from Canada to celebrate her 65th year on the throne. This was the same day that Trump left the UK ahead of his summit with Russian President Putin in Helsinki.
