The Queen's Jewelry Had A Special Meaning At Recent Appearance

When you're the Queen of England, it's pretty obvious that your fashion choices are going to be scrutinized. You're representing all of the United Kingdom, after all! Luckily, Queen Elizabeth has always been able to keep her style classic and chic, and on top of that, she often manages to hide little hidden meanings in many different parts of her outfits, including her jewelry.

Recently, Queen Elizabeth opened the sixth session of Scottish Parliament.

"I have spoken before of my deep and abiding affection for this wonderful country, and of the many happy memories Prince Philip and I always held of our time here," she said during the appearance.

The Queen made it clear that she holds a lot of love and respect for the Scottish people.

"It is often said that it is the people that make a place, and there are few places where this is truer than in Scotland, as we have seen in recent times," her speech continued.

She explained that the sentiment is shared by all of the royal family.

"Following my grandson’s time as Lord High Commissioner, Prince William has told me many heartening stories that he heard first hand of people and communities across Scotland uniting to protect and care for those who are isolated or vulnerable," she said.

This all probably contributed to her choice of jewelry for the event — most notably, her brooch.

The Queen was wearing Queen Mary's Diamond Thistle Brooch.

The thistle is a symbol of Scotland and as a flower, it's even sometimes embroidered into royal wedding dresses! This is a gesture we're sure was appreciated and is exactly what we expect from the royal family's attention to detail!
