20. Dressed In Blue & Antique Brooches
Dressed in Robins Egg Blue, the Queen is wearing an impressively decorated hat and an antique brooch from the Royal vault. Called the Queen Mary's Thistle, it originally belonged to her grandmother, Queen Mary, who loved to wear it clipped to her hat. While her grandmother passed away in 1953 - and she probably inherited it at that time - the first time the Queen publicly wore the brooch was in 2010 - 57 years later!
