    If this is really true, kudos to the Queen! Trolling at 92, love it.



    Did the Queen 'troll Trump' with her BROOCHES? Royal fans point out her chosen jewels for his visit included a gift from the Obamas, a nod to Canada - and a pin worn at her fatherís funeral

    • Twitter user has suggested the Queen was 'trolling' the president
    • Suggests Her Majesty deliberately opted for 'controversial' brooches
    • Monarch wore a gift from the Obamas for Donald Trump's arrival
    • On the day they had tea she wore a brooch worn at her father's funeral

    By Martha Cliff for MailOnline

    The US President's visit to the UK divided the nation with many taking to the streets to protest.
    And one Twitter user has suggested that the Queen herself was conducting a protest of her own with the choice of brooches she wore during Donald Trump's time in England.
    Despite the fact Her Majesty is strictly neutral when it comes to political matters, social media is convinced otherwise.
    Julie (@SamaruiKnitter) took to Twitter to suggest the monarch's choice in brooch during Trump's time in England made a bold statement.



    Pictured: Wearing The American State Visit brooch a gift from the Obamas on Trump's first day in the UK (left) on his second day he visited the Queen at Windsor Castle where she wore the palm leaf brooch worn by the Queen Mother at King George VI's funeral (centre) and on his third day she wore the Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch (right) given to her by the Canadian people in 2017



    Addressing her 4,000-strong following, Julie said: 'She wore three brooches while she and Trump were both in town. The day he arrived, the day of the banquet, and the day she actually met him for tea. (sic)'




    In a new tweet she continues: 'Arrival day was the one that got the most attention. That day, she wore the brooch the Obamas gave her on their last visit to England.
    'That by itself is amusing enough. She wore a brooch the Obamas gave her. But it gets better.
    'It's not AN American brooch, any would be funny. She chose THIS ONE. This one was purchased out-of-pocket by Michelle and Barack Obama and given to her as a personal gift.'



    In a Twitter thread Julie (@SamaruiKnitter) pointed out that on the day of his arrival Her Majesty wore a brooch that was a gift from the Obamas




    The American State Visit brooch gifted to the Queen by Barack and Michelle Obama was worn during an audience at Windsor Castle where she was joined by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Sheikh Ahmad Al-Tayeb on the day of Trump's arrival




    The small green flower brooch was a personal gift from the former president, selected it from the vintage selection crafted from 14-karat yellow gold, diamonds, and moss agate

    According to Her Majesty's Jewel Vault the small green flower brooch was selected from the vintage selection at the Tiny Jewel Box jewelry store in Washington, D.C by the former president and First Lady in 2011.
    It is an American-made piece from 1950 crafted from 14-carat yellow gold, diamonds, and moss agate.
    Julie reveals that on Trump's second day in the UK, Friday, and the day that he attended tea with the Queen, Her Majesty once again opted for a rather pointed pin choice.

















    Julie pointed out that the day that the Queen welcomed the President for tea at Windsor castle she wore the palm leaf brooch




    The diamond brooch was seen as the monarch posed for photos with the President and First Lady Melania Trump




    Twitter user Julie points out that this was a brooch famously worn by the Queen Mother at Her Majesty's father's funeral




    The pin can be seen in the famous Three Queens in Mourning photo taken at the funeral of King George VI

    Julie writes: 'And for the day of the tea, QE wore an innocuous 'nice but not holy s***, considering what's in the vaults' diamond brooch she inherited from her mother.
    'Jewel watchers nearly died, because it is the brooch worn in the famous "Three Queens in Mourning" photo, worn by the Queen Mum.
    'QE rolled up to tea with the Trumps wearing the brooch her mother wore to her father's STATE FUNERAL.'
    Continuing the Twitter thread she explains: 'It's called the Sapphire Jubillee Brooch, and it was given to the Queen of England as a gift for ruling for eleventy billion (okay, 65). From Canada.



    On Trump's third day in the UK the Queen wore a badge synonymous with her Canadian ties with Julie pointing out that the president had been 'screaming and insulting' Canada




    The Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch was a gift from the Canadian people and was worn as she welcomed King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium to Windsor Castle

    For Trump's final day in the UK, she once again made a further unusual brooch choice.
    'You know, who Trump's been screaming about and insulting. The commonwealth country and one of the UK's greatest allies. Them.'
    The Queen was given the sapphire brooch from the Canadian people to mark her sapphire jubilee during an event in London celebrating 150 years of the Canadian Confederation in 2017.
    The Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch is adorned with 48 sapphires, which were part of the only sapphire deposit ever found in Canada in 2002.
    The thread has garnered more than 3,000 likes as her followers applauded her astute observation.
    MailOnline has contacted Buckingham Palace for a comment.
    THE THREE CONTROVERSIAL BROOCHES WORN BY THE QUEEN




    THURSDAY: The American State Visit Brooch
    Worn by the Queen during an audience at Windsor Castle where she was joined by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and Sheikh Ahmad Al-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al Azhar.
    According to Her Majesty's Jewel vault the small green flower brooch was selected it from the vintage selection at the Tiny Jewel Box jewelry store in Washington, D.C by the former president and First Lady in 2011.
    It is an American-made piece from 1950 crafted from 14-karat yellow gold, diamonds, and moss agate.



    FRIDAY: The brooch worn at her father's funeral
    While welcoming her American guest to tea the Queen wore perhaps the most controversial badge of all.
    The palm leaf brooch was famously worn by the Queen mother at the state funeral of Her Majesty's father King George VI and can be seen in the famous Three Queens in Mourning photo.
    The Queen inherited the brooch in 2002.
    SATURDAY: The Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch
    Worn by the monarch during King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium's visit to Windsor castle.



    The Queen was given the sapphire brooch from the Canadian people to mark her sapphire jubilee during an event in London celebrating 150 years of the Canadian Confederation in 2017.
    The Governor presented the Queen with the brooch on behalf of the Canadian people to mark her sapphire jubilee, celebrated last year as she marked 65 years on the throne.
    The Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch is adorned with 48 sapphires, which were part of the only sapphire deposit ever found in Canada in 2002.
    Saturday's engagement is the first time that the Queen has been photographed wearing the brooch since it was gifted to her.

    President Trump isn't going to let an excessive focus on the past get in the way...

    WTF? That is supposed to be the world's takeaway from this disaster? Trump answered one of the the 6 questions allowed about what he would put the blame on Putin for, and his reply was immediately the DNC server, where is that server, where are her 30K emails?! He won the election heartily and this is a witch hunt hoax by the DNC as an excuse they lost...say what about not focusing on the past, MFer?

    I read something the other day about the server that he keeps babbling about. It was cloned by the FBI and is in a secure government facility. If he really wanted to know what was on it, he could ask someone. He also claimed yesterday that he had never met Putin before becoming...what he is today. I can't use the word president when it comes to him. Anyway, he is on record 9 times gushing about his so called meetings with Putin.

    So, let's say you murder someone. Can you go to trial and say, "Hey, that was in the past. Let's work toward a brighter future!"

    Putting stuff in the past usually has 3 components - 1) admitting your transgression, 2) making amends for the damages your transgression cause, and 3) promising to not transgress in the future.

    He's going to make a statement this afternoon. He'll probably stick to a script to not sound so crazy.

    Reporters are getting ready and they are now ushering them in the cabinet room before they send in the clown. I’ve got my radio on and they are breaking for his speech.

    Republican candidate for Arizona state Senate attends forum on gun control...and tells the crowd he killed his crazed mother in 1963, and that this shows the importance of having a good guy with a gun around. https://t.co/ytVHfGVwrW

    We now have video. Trump said: "Once again, full faith and support for America's intelligence agencies. I have a faith full faith in our intelligence agencies...I have full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies, always have."

    Trump: "I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place. Could be other people also. A lot of people out there."
