I'm thrilled how they've become such a big assett to the Firm. They are a wonderful, loving family, happy away from the spotlight but always ready to step up and do the work when called. Charles is lucky to have them and more importantly is able to TRUST them.
I really hope he honors them with the Duke of Edinburgh titles. They deserve the distinction and public recognition of their loyalty. IMO
I don't know about the brooch, but I imagine it has sentimental value concerning the queen. The coat dress is exquisite, just gorgeous. A museum piece for the ages. Her goodness shines out no matter what she's wearing.
