A royal buzz surrounds Queen Camilla’s latest brooch

Queen Camilla spent today in Shrewsbury, where she undertook several engagements – including a trip to The Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings site and the local Farmer’s Market.

After Her Majesty’s visit to the Farmer’s Market, she moves to the Old Market Hall where she signed the visitors book and met members of the local Bee Keepers Association.

Draped in a sophisticated tan-coloured coat, Queen Camilla adorned herself with a fitting accessory – a bee-shaped brooch. Fine jewellery experts at Steven Stone have revealed everything there is to know about the piece that’s causing quite the buzz.

“Queen Camilla’s brooch is in the shape of a large bee, with cabochon ruby eyes, yellow gold legs and diamond encrusted wings. Its abdomen is comprised of diamonds set in yellow gold.

This isn’t the first time that Her Majesty has worn this particular brooch – she wore it to a Bee Garden Party at Marlborough House in 2023 and an event with the Bees for Development in 2019 and seems to save it for similar functions. The bejeweled piece perfectly compliments her reputation as an animal lover, reflecting her deep appreciation for nature’s creatures.

Though the brooches origin is unknown, it bares resemblance to one of Queen Alexandra’s, which she received from the Ladies of Blackburn in 1888. I’d estimate it to be worth $15,000 (£12,000).”
