Looks like the Queen subtly shaded Donald Trump with her brooch

Looks like the Queen subtly shaded Donald Trump with her brooch

When Donald Trump tried to use his infamous handshake technique, "forceful yanking motion that pulls whomever he is shaking hands with off-balance", on the Queen's Lady in Waiting, Virginia Ogilvy, Countess of Airlie, she was prepared, as previously reported by the Inquisitr.

US President Donald Trump has wrongly claimed that Queen Elizabeth II inspected her honour guard for the first time in 70 years during his visit to the United Kingdom last week. On Twitter, she noted the importance of brooches in Queen Elizabeth's life, adding that everyone gives them to her as gifts.

"Jewel watchers almost died, because it is the brooch worn in the famous "Three Queens in Mourning" photo, worn by the Queen Mum", at her husband George VI's funeral.

The next day, she reportedly wore the Sapphire Jubilee Brooch, gifted to her by Canada - followed by the Three Queens In Mourning Brooch - the brooch the Queen Mother wore to her HUSBAND'S FUNERAL.

"It's a very, very unusual thing for the Queen to be there on her own".

"Jewel watchers almost died, because it is the brooch worn in the famous "Three Queens in Mourning" photo, worn by the Queen Mum". According to royal protocol, you should show up early, but Trump showed up right on time.

"QE rolled up to tea with the Trumps wearing the brooch her mother wore to her father's STATE FUNERAL". We are talking about a Commonwealth country and one of the main allies of great Britain, wrote Julia on Twitter.

The thread has garnered more than 3,000 likes as her followers applauded her astute observation.

Express.co.uk has reached out to Kensington Palace for comment on the matter.

The day US President Trump arrived in London to meet Her Majesty, she had previously met with the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar for an audience at Windsor Castle.

"Donald Trump is not astute enough to recognize a piece of jewelry and its symbolism", she said. It features 14-karat yellow gold, diamonds and moss agate.

Some online speculated that this brooch was chosen over the traditional maple leaf-shaped brooch because it resembles a snowflake, perhaps a knowing nod to the slang term popularized by Trump for those on the political left.
