The Queen Reportedly Appears to Show Subtle Support for Meghan & Harry with a Glittering Brooch
Queen Elizabeth II allegedly shows public support for her grandson, Prince Harry and his family amid the drama of his exit from the royal family.
Hours after the Queen was spotted wearing a brooch that was given to her by Canada's Governor-General, David Johnson, royal watchers speculate about Queen Elizabeth II's public show of support for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
According to Daily Mail, the 93-year-old wore a glittering diamond and sapphire brooch as she attended church in West Newton, near Sandringham, on Sunday.
"This would be the Queen's public show for support since the couple announced their exit from the Royal Family in early January."
Many have claimed that her choice of accessory is a subtle show of support for Harry, who recently moved to Canada with his family. Harper's Bazaar added that the jewelry, which was shaped like a snowflake, was made of 48 sapphires and surrounded with diamonds.
The Queen has previously worn the brooch to few events which include her visits to Canada House in London and during President Donald Trump's visit in July 2018.
For her church outing, the Queen paired the jewelry over a bright blue overcoat, with a matching hat, black gloves, and leather loafers. The monarch also added a patent-leather handbag to her ensemble.

InStyle recalls that shortly after the Sussexes' shocking announcement, the Palace had released a statement where the Queen explained that she was "supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family."
The Queen also admitted that she wanted the issues between her grandson and the Royal Family resolved as soon as possible, per a NY Times article.
While the monarch first asked for "final decisions to be reached in the coming days," the mother-of-four was able to meet with her eldest son and heir, Prince Charles, and his sons, Prince William, and Prince Harry in the latter days of the announcement.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child - no one else did at the time, but we did - and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images
They had met to mark out an arrangement that could set a pattern for future generations of royals in a more streamlined royal family.
