Princess Charlotte, just 7 years old, faced her first state funeral on September 19. The daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales appeared dressed in black and wearing a horseshoe brooch with an emotional meaning.
Princess Charlotte horseshoe brooch
Accompanied by her brother, Prince George, and her parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Charlotte wanted to pay a beautiful tribute to her great-grandmother. Dressed in mourning, she wore for the first time a small brooch in the shape of a horseshoe. It is a gift that Elizabeth II gave her and symbolized her great passion for horses.
The horseshoe brooch has a great history behind it, as it belonged to the Queen Mother, who in turn would have received it from her mother-in-law, Queen Mary of Teck, in the 1920s.
Undoubtedly, it is a jewel of great sentimental value for Elizabeth II, who wanted to give it to Charlotte, with whom she shared her great passion for horses.
A nice gesture with which Princess Charlotte wanted to give her last goodbye while she was living one of the most difficult moments at her young age.
