The Queen has received some exotic gifts! They must make fascinating exhibits. I wonder whether she has ever worn the cute porcupine brooch.
It occurs to me, in thinking about the tiaras she took along on the 1953-54 tour, that the Queen established then what her favorite jewels for evening would always be. Except for the Diana tiara, she still wears those tiaras frequently, and the same is generally true of the necklaces. There had really not been time since the death of Queen Mary and the Coronation for her to choose her favorites and wear them frequently at home; it was done for that trip.
