There’s a theory going around on Twitter that Queen Elizabeth was trolling President Donald Trump during his recent visit to the U.K.. Her weapon of choice? Brooches.
Twitter user @SamuraiKnitter, with the help of Her Majesty’s Jewel Box blog, took note of the unusual brooch choices Her Majesty made when meeting with Trump. And she Tweeted all of her findings.
The thread plays out like this:
“She wore three brooches while she and Trump were both in town. The day he arrived, the day of the banquet, and the day she actually met him for tea.”
“Arrival day was the one that got the most attention. That day, she wore the brooch the Obamas gave her on their last visit to England.”
“Next day, next brooch. This was a day of audiences with people, she does that to maintain the Commonwealth at least one day a week. That day was the King and Queen of Belgium for tea as well. She wore a sapphire brooch. ”
“It’s called the Sapphire Jubillee Brooch, and it was given to the Queen of England as a gift for ruling for eleventy billion (okay, 65). From Canada. You know, who Trump’s been screaming about and insulting.”
She also points out that the brooch could also be construed another way, tweeting: “You know, that Canadian brooch of Elizabeth’s could be considered a SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE.”
“And for the day of the tea, QE wore an innocuous ‘nice but not holy shit, considering what’s in the vaults’ diamond brooch she inherited from her mother.”
“Nice way to get in a dig again without having to say a word.”
“And for the day of the tea, QE wore an innocuous ‘nice but not holy s***, considering what’s in the vaults’ diamond brooch she inherited from her mother.”
“QE rolled up to tea with the Trumps wearing the brooch her mother wore to her father’s STATE FUNERAL.”
Are you a believer?
