  1. That is one seriously awesome brooch Queen Maxima is wearing! I’m wondering if it’s new since I have never seen it worn by anyone else. At first I thought it was one of her magnificent aquas, but I don’t think so. It looks like the ginormous British brooch, the one with the two Cullinan diamonds. Quite stunning, both of them!
