Queen Elizabeth may be publicly keeping mum as she continues to privately mourn Prince Philip, but the jewelry she chose for a recent meeting spoke volumes about how the monarch is holding her late husband of 73 years close to her heart.

During a virtual meeting with Ms. Agnes Oswaha, Ambassador from the Republic of South Sudan, on Tuesday, the Queen accessorized a floral dress with the Onslow Butterfly Brooch, a piece of jewelry that has only been seen in public three times in the last decade.

  Prince Harry’s New Revelations About His Drug & Alcohol Use Have Us Rethinking His ‘Party Prince’ Reputation Prince Harry’s reputation as a reckless “party prince” has almost always preceded him, as tabloids have been splattered with stories alluding to the Duke’s drug use and hard-partying ways since he was just a teen. His latest admission on how he was feeling at the time on mental health docuseries The Me You Can’t See with Oprah Winfrey, however, serves as a sobering reminder: There is often a complex reason behind substance abuse, and vilifying this behavior can do more harm than good.

The diamond and ruby brooch, in the shape of a butterfly was a gift from Dowager Countess of Onslow to the Queen at her 1947 wedding to the late Duke of Edinburgh. The timing of its re-emergence was symbolic just two days before what would have been the 100th birthday of the Queen's husband Prince Philip, who died on April 9.

The brooch was last seen in August 2019 when the Queen attended a church service in Balmoral. Prior to that, she wore it in Norfolk for a meeting at the Sandringham's Women's Institute in January 2012 and back in 2010 she wore it to receive President Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen often chooses her jewelry to pay homage to a certain person or occasion. In a romantic nod to her husband, the Queen celebrated their most recent wedding anniversary last November by wearing her Chrysanthemum Brooch, a sapphire and diamond pin she wore for a series of portraits taken with him on their honeymoon in 1947.
