Queen Elizabeth May Have Just Expertly Trolled Trump With Her Choice Of Tiara

The royal family hosted a state banquet last night at Buckingham Palace. The evening's dress code required men to wear white ties and women to don tiaras.

While Donald Trump was roasted for his unfortunate tailoring, Queen Elizabeth's choice of jewels kept everyone buzzing on the internet.

Donning a Burmese ruby tiara, it seems the British monarch may have subtly thrown shade right in the clueless face of the American president.


Although the queen's intention remains unclear, the internet saw what it wanted to see: Queen Elizabeth insulting Trump by wearing a piece of jewelry that symbolically protects its wearer against disease and evil spirits.


According to Indy100, the tiara was created for her majesty in 1973 by Garrard and Co, incorporating 96 stones from the queen's private collection.

The embedded stones were originally from a necklace gifted in 1947 by the people of Burma, now known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, a country rich in jade and gems.

After all, the queen has a whole museum's worth of jewels to choose from, so there definitely could have been meaning behind the selection.




A memo written by House of Garrard goes into further detail about the item.

"The 96 rubies are a symbolic gesture, as rubies in Burmese culture protect from illness and evil, in this case to protect the wearer from the 96 diseases that can afflict humans. The rubies and diamonds are set in a series of rose motifs inspired by the Tudor Rose, the heraldic symbol of Britain."

The queen most likely chose the tiara with the red rubies, thinking it would complement the white of her dress and the blue in her sash to tie in the colors of both the American and British flags.

Still, Twitter refused to believe anything other than the fact that the queen wanted to protect herself from the plague sitting beside her.






Others weren't as convinced of her trolling capabilities and instead saw the tiara as a nod to Britain colonialism.






To dispel rumors suggesting the queen had thrown shade at the president, royal jewelry expert Ella Kay told Town & Country that the queen had no intentions of making a political statement by choosing the ruby and diamond tiara, despite its "great personal meaning and importance."

"The rubies in the tiara are a symbol of the long, healthy life that people wish the Queen to have."

When the queen met Trump last year, people thought she was insulting the president by wearing three different brooches that were chosen with great care.

The first brooch was given to her by the Obamas. The second was a funeral brooch. The third brooch was a gift from Canada, Britain's commonwealth country and ally.

The queen is known to have a neutral stance on politics, but we're hoping she has a taste for more refined personalities.
