The queen was seen wearing it as she received the archbishop of Canterbury and the grand imam of Al-Azhar for an audience at Windsor Castle, People reports.

On the day he arrived in the United Kingdom, she donned a handsome vintage green flower brooch - which happened to be a gift to her from former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.

Julie reveals that on Trump's second day in the UK, Friday, and the day that he attended tea with the Queen, Her Majesty once again opted for a rather pointed pin choice. On this day Elizabeth II wore a brooch, presented to her by Barak and Michelle Obama in 2011.

It is an American-made piece from 1950 crafted from 14-carat yellow gold, diamonds, and moss agate.

Some online speculated that this brooch was chosen over the traditional maple leaf-shaped brooch because it resembles a snowflake, perhaps a knowing nod to the slang term popularized by Trump for those on the political left.
