Princess Anne’s subtle sentimental tribute to Queen on journey home to Palace

Princess Anne’s subtle sentimental tribute to Queen on journey home to Palace

September 13, 2022

Princess Anne opted to wear her most precious jewel gifted to her by her late parents, Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip.

The Princess Royal, alongside other members of the Royal Family, has spent the last few sombre days by the Queen’s coffin since her death on Thursday 8 September.

Today, the 72 year old, complemented her black attire with her favourite Grima pearl earrings presented to her as a gift from her parents in the 1960s.

She was also spotted wearing them at her father's funeral in 2021 and has chosen to sport them again in another sentimental tribute to her loving parents.

The staple piece has been a go-to for Princess Royal for more than 50 years but it's not just for sad occasions. Anne sported the stunning accessory to her very own wedding to Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence in 1992, and at age 19 while on her first tour in Australia with her mother, she wore them.

Earlier this year, the royal whipped them out for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

According to Mail Online, the earrings were created by Anglo-Italian jeweller Andrew Grima and feature diamonds, pearls and gold with a leaf design.

It has a retail price of more than £2,600 ($3,000) and has a “huge sentimental value” as reported byWoman & Home.

On Tuesday, the royal shared a moving tribute to her late sovereign as she travelled with her coffin from Edinburgh to London. The coffin was carried out of St Giles' Cathedral and flown to London before being carried by hearse to Buckingham Palace where King Charles III received her.

Over 26,000 people came to pay their respects following her death last week.

In her speech, she said: "It has been an honour and a privilege to accompany her on her final journeys."

She continued: "I was fortunate to share the last 24 hours of my dearest Mother’s life. It has been an honour and a privilege to accompany her on her final journeys.

"Witnessing the love and respect shown by so many on these journeys has been both humbling and uplifting.

"We will all share unique memories. I offer my thanks to each and everyone who share our sense of loss.

"We may have been reminded how much of her presence and contribution to our national identity we took for granted."

The Queen will rest in the Bow Room overnight before being moved to Westminster Hall, where she will be open to the public 24 hours a day from 5 pm on Wednesday 14 September until 6:30 am on Monday 19 September – on which day her funeral will take place.
