Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh stunned at Westminster Abbey in her Proenza Schouler coat on Monday for the Commonwealth Day Service. But her brooch really caught the attention of royal fans.
Royal fan @lalauraru777 tweeted: “She looks fabulous and I am so happy for them. Well-deserved honour.
“There must be some significance in this brooch – it’s a bit different, is it not? Perhaps an artisan she has championed.”
In fact, the Duchess wore the brooch as recently as December 2022 at Kate Middleton’s Together at Christmas carol concert.
According to royal fashion expert @dagmar_Marie77, the brooch was a “gift to Sophie from 2015”.
They tweeted: “It was a gift from the Czech designer Mrs Štěpánka Tóth Kufřiřtová, owner of the STEFANY® jewellery.”
The two stones included in the jewel are called “feather agate with a cavity filled by pure crystal”.
The expert noted that this brand “creates one-of-a-kind pieces by combining rare stones with silver, gold and other varieties of metals”.
But the brooch may have a hidden meaning, according to this expert.
Royal fans absolutely loved Sophie’s style from Monday’s Commonwealth Day Service.
@hillier_noel tweeted: “Simple but very chic, she looked every inch the Duchess of Edinburgh in this ensemble, by Proenza Schouler.”
In addition, @LadyJane8921 commented: “Love the ensemble. She’s glowing, the Duchess of Edinburgh looks fantastic.”

Royal fan @MeredithDrennen added: “Does anybody look better in white than Sophie?”
Instagram user @silvina.blanco.58 said: “I think she found her style. Looking better every day.”
Another fan, @rebpat1113 wrote: “She looks nice. Nice colour on her and a classic hat. Nothing showy but appropriate for the event.”
Instagram account @teri_dost compared the Duchess to the Princess of Wales, saying: “This is such a Kate look – but Sophie looks amazing.”
