Andrew - I believe there would be scarcely anyone who would view the Dail Mail as authoritative. It has a very poor reputation for reliability of information but a good one for providing loads of pics.
: LOL, yes I saw the mistakes. I always wonder
: how the become authorities on subjects. But
: thank you for showing me Arthur's post! Very
: interesting. I never saw the 2nd photo until
: now. Thank you for everyone's input!

: Many thanks for the link Andrew.
: Even a casual glance had me laughing at some
: of the very obvious mistakes.
: To cite one example - the caption of the
: photo of HM with Prince Charles and Princess
: Anne says HM is wearing the 3 strand pearl
: necklace given to her by George V. Then
: almost immediately the author says that the
: Queen is wearing the 2 strands she wore on
: her wedding day. In reality HM was wearing
: what we call the Hanoverian Pearls.
: Re the Kent amethysts. The author says that
: historians believe that two of the brooches
: from the demi-parure may have been added to
: the necklace. Perhaps the author had read
: Arthur's post from 2014
: as I am not aware of any other who has made
: that connection.
: I wonder why she keeps referring to HM's
: aquamarines as unusual?
