The brooch of two great queens
From great granny - via an Imperial Court
King George VI showered his precious Lillibet with jewels and among them is a brooch of sapphires, rubies and diamonds given to her by her papa when she secured the succession with the birth of a son. The sparkling basket of flowers was a gift from George VI to the future Elizabeth II on the arrival of Charles, a baby prince, a king in waiting, the longest serving heir in British history. For the Sapphire Queen, it is a jewel in a million.
