Dublin: 15 °C Monday 20 September, 2021

There's a gas theory circulating that the Queen threw some serious shade at Donald Trump

The tea is piping hot.

IN THE IMMEDIATE aftermath of Donald Trump’s visit to the UK last week there was a lot to digest, not least with his rudeness when meeting Queen Elizabeth II.

First, he was 12 minutes late meeting her, leaving her out in 26 degree Celsius heat.

When he eventually showed up, his jacket was sloppily left unbuttoned.

Then he turned his back on the Queen, making her shuffle around him…

Seriously, who walks ahead and loses sight of a 92-year-old without apologising, never mind the Queen of England?

However, it appears the Queen may have gotten her own back.

To understand her subtle shade, you gotta know two things.

Firstly, all members of the Royal Family are not allowed to be a political.

Meghan Markle got in a lil bit of a pickle last week when our very own Senator Catherine Noone tweeted that Meghan was pleased by Ireland’s abortion referendum result. The Senator quickly deleted the tweet and apologised, tweeting that Meghan had said she ‘seemed pleased’.


Second thing to know is that the Queen loves a good brooch and that she owns hundreds of them. Throughout her reign, she’s carefully selected which brooches she’s worn in order to signal meaning (given that she can’t say much politically in public).

She wore an Irish Harp diamond brooch in Dublin in 2011…

The bow has serious sentimental value as she inherited it from her beloved grandmother, Queen Mary of Teck.

She even loans out her jewellery to others in the Royal family to wear on visits aboard. Here’s herself, Kate and Camilla wearing a maple leaf in Canada.

You get the picture – her brooches have meaning.

So last week, one brooch specialist (yeah I didn’t know that was a thing either), @SamuraiKnitter, noticed something with the three ones worn by the Queen when Trump was in town.

On day one, she not only wore a brooch that the Obamas gave her, but wore a brooch that they purchased from their own pocket as a personal gift to signify their intimate friendship!

Nothing the Queen wears is by accident.

Shade = Thrown.

Here she is wearing it when visiting the Embassy of the United States in London in 2011.

On the second day of his visit, she whips out a brooch she’s never worn before: a brooch from the commonwealth country of Canada…the country that Trump  has causing havoc with.

Then, for the last day, the day she actually met with Trump, she wore this lil piece of jewellery.

 But her outfit to meet Trump goes even further.

The election of Trump and the Brexit referendum were both successful in part due to the harvesting of Facebook users’ data by Cambridge Analytica (the same funding for that group also tried to influence the abortion referendum here in Ireland).

It’s being speculated that the Queen has been giving teeny-tiny hints to her true feelings about Brexit aswell…

Hope that tea doesn’t scald ya too much Mr. President.

TLDR: The Queen is in fact the Queen of Shade and her squad are not here to f**k around.
