Queen Elizabeth gives nod to Germany wearing special emerald brooch to meet Angela Merkel


    The monarch appeared to complete her look wearing a pair of nude coloured tights.

    She also dressed up the ensemble with pieces from her enviable jewellery collection.

    Queen Elizabeth II is rarely seen without a brooch and is thought to have a collection of nearly 100 brooches.

    The monarch has been known to send messages with the pieces that she chooses to wear.


    This is something she is thought to have done today while meeting the Chancellor of Germany.

    The 95-year-old sported the Cambridge Emerald Cluster Brooch without the usual pendant.

    The jewel has special significance as it was won by Princess Augusta, Duchess of Cambridge in a charity lottery in Germany.

    This happened in the early 19th century and the jewel has stayed within the Royal Family.

    She finished the look wearing her favourite closed toe black pumps.

    Queen Elizabeth II has worn the same black shoes for 50 years and they are handmade by Anello & Davide of Kensington.

    Angela Merkle opted for a blue button up coat for the meeting.

    She wore it with a pair of loose fitting navy trousers.

    The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

    The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

    It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

    Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on March 26, 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

    Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

    The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

    Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 39, his oldest son.

    Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, six, and Louis, three, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
