This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, things are different. However, the Queen still found a way to pay her respects.

Queen Elizabeth II wore an all black ensemble for the sober occasion, which was uploaded to the Royal Family Instagram.

The image was posted with the caption: “The Queen honours the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey.

“100 years ago, on 11th November 1920, an unidentified British serviceman, who died on the battlefields during the First World War, was brought from Northern France and buried @westminsterabbeylondon.”

A bouquet, a replica of the Queen’s own wedding bouquet, was laid on the tomb.

Her Majesty was dressed in a black coat, with matching gloves, hat, shoes, handbag and face mask.

Fans flooded the post with positive images. One wrote: “What a great picture, great woman.”

“The queen with the face mask!!!!” another said.

Another wrote: “What a blessing to see her!”

She wore one of her favourite brooches, which she has worn on many occasions.

This includes in her famous Christmas speech, Ascot and Commonwealth Day.

The huge diamond star shaped brooch, covered in huge sparkling gems. It is estimated to weight around 40 carats, a large and no doubt priceless piece.

The Queen inherited the piece in 1981 from Lady Jardine.

It is without a doubt one of the Queen’s largest and most glamorous brooches.

Little is known about the brooch except that is a a late Victorian piece. As such, the piece is somewhat of a mystery. Even the identity of Ms Jardine is shrouded in myth.

Was she real? Is “Lady Jardine” a code name.

The Queen is a fan of a brooch, which is good because she has many.

It has been theorised that the Queen wears brooches to signify certain messages at events.

One of the Queen’s favourite brooches is a piece given to her by the President of Singapore.

The piece is the Singapore Peranakan Diamond Jubilee Brooch, worth £5,200.

The piece is filigree 18k gold piece in the Bird Of Paradise design. The Queen wore the piece for sentimental events including Princess Charlotte’s christening.

This is a sure sign this gift has made its way out of her “diplomatic” wardrobe and into her favourites.

It was also claimed the Queen used jewellery to snub former US President Donald Trump during his UK visit.

The revelation was discussed on Channel 5 documentary All the Queen’s Jewellery: Heirlooms & Legacy on Channel 5.

It was noted by many the Queen wore a brooch given to her by Barack Obama, his predecessor.

Susie Boniface said: “That cannot have been a coincidence that was a pointed message.

“She’s managed to be rude to Trump while making him think she was honouring him. It’s amazing.”

The next day she wore a brooch that was a gift from Canada, perceived as yet another snub.
