TBF-QEII-73 The Queen’s Gold Singapore Orchid Brooch

73. The Queen’s Gold Singapore Orchid Brooch

   In 1972, The Queen made State Visits to Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei; it was during this visit to Singapore that an orchid, the Dendrobium Elizabeth was named in her honour.

   Subsequently, to mark The Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002, the Government and People of Singapore presented The Queen with this gold model of the orchid, as a brooch.[1]

   The Queen has never been pictured wearing this brooch publicly.
