The Queen and her family appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is now over and the ceremonies are over, but little-known mysteries and secrets continue to be revealed – from lip-readers’ insights to family tensions being divulged.

And it turns out there was a secret hidden in the monarch’s outfit, as on Sunday she donned a chic green coat with a distinctive black pin in her hat, as Good morning! Reports.

Many were puzzled by the pin, wondering why it was there and what its purpose was – was it strictly decorative or did it have a function?

It turns out the black clasp was actually a mourning pin and was the Queen’s way of honoring her late husband, Prince Philip, during the remarkable four-day celebration of his Platinum Jubilee.

What do you think the brooch was? Let us know in the comments…

The Queen wore the pin when she last appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The black mourning pin was placed front and center on his hat, contrasting with the elegant emerald green that matched his coat.

She also wore pearl earrings, a matching necklace and white gloves.

Her Majesty completed the look with a diamond bow brooch which is also significant. It carries a long family history and is one of a trio of different sizes with the same design that the Queen has worn on poignant royal occasions.

However, it was her bereavement pin that took center stage. For most of her 70-year reign, the Queen has been supported by Prince Philip, who died aged 99 on April 9, 2021. Mourning pins tend to be worn by members of the royal family following a death.
