If there's one thing we've learned about royal family members, it's that they love to pass their jewelry onto one another. So, when a royal loses an earring or a bracelet slips off their wrist, it could end up being a much bigger deal than you might originally think.
Queen Letizia learned this lesson yesterday afternoon, when she experienced a major mishap on her first royal outing of 2022.
While attending the New Year Military parade at the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Spanish royal was donning Queen Ena's brooch, which ended up falling off of her navy blue gown. According to Hello!, the vintage accessory features a large gray pearl in its center surrounded by diamonds, completed with another, smaller drop pearl. The fine piece of jewelry dates back to its original owner, Queen Ena, who reigned from 31 May 1906 until 14 April 1931.
