Thanks again Boffer for your excellent knowledge of the site.
I expect we will see most jewels we know so well and there could be only small snippets of new information.
I really hope there is some new info.
I am looking forward to seeing the new photo my favourite choker.
: This is information that has already been
: released by the Royal Collection, back in
: 2007 on the web-exhibiton to coincide with
: the 1947 Wedding Exhibition:
: "The stomacher is formed as three
: linked brooches which can be worn
: separately. Made for Queen Mary in 1920 with
: diamonds from two of her wedding presents:
: the ‘Kapurthala’ stomacher and the ‘Town of
: Swansea’ crescent, both given in 1893. Given
: by Queen Mary to Princess Elizabeth for her
: wedding in 1947."
: It seems like a lot of the jewels that are
: to be featured in this publications have
: previously been exhibited during the course
: of various Buckingham Palace Summer Openers,
: and thus a lot of the information has
: already been released.
