We already discussed why Princess Anne wore a red poppy brooch on her lapel during a rare public appearance. Now that new photos of the royal family are surfacing online, it’s important to address an equally burning question: Why did Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton wear multiple artificial flowers, instead of one?
It all started over the weekend when the royal family hosted a private ceremony at Westminster Abbey in honor of the 100th anniversary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior.
Since the event was ahead of Remembrance Day, we expected to see several poppy brooches, which honor those who have died at war. However, you might be confused about why some members—including Queen Elizabeth and Middleton—were seen wearing multiple poppies on their lapel.
