If a recent conspiracy theory surrounding President Donald Trump’s visit to England is accurate, then even the Queen may have no respect for the controversial American leader. 

With the help of the From Her Majesty’s Jewel Vault blog, Twitter user @SamuraiKnitter put together quite the breakdown of brooches worn by Queen Elizabeth II while Donald Trump was in the UK last week.

Was the Queen using her accessories to troll Donald Trump?

According to the theory, every brooch that the Queen wears is significant and chosen for a specific reason. She also has quite the collection, as she’s received many as gifts, including from the Obama family (a point that becomes important a little later on).

If a national leader visits, she’ll wear a brooch that they may have given her.

During Donald Trump’s recent visit to the UK, Queen Elizabeth II wore three different brooches. 

The first, which she wore at Trump’s arrival, was given to her by the Obamas during their last visit to England and, as @SamuraiKnitter points out, was presented as a personal gift that the family purchased “out-of-pocket.”

Now that can't have been an accident, could it?

The second brooch, worn during her weekly audience with her people and, later, the King and Queen of Belgium. 

In case you’ve forgotten, Canada, from whom the brooch was gifted, has been a point of contention with Trump as he and Justin Trudeau have been in a back-and-forth over trade agreements.

Finally, there’s the third brooch. At first glance, there doesn’t appear to be any hidden meaning behind it.

Oh, but there was. The brooch was the same one worn by the Queen Mother during King George VI’s state funeral. 

If the theory is accurate then the Queen silently took part in the protests that erupted across the United Kingdom during Trump’s visit. Considering this is his first visit to Great Britain, it's not a great sign for the political climate that the Queen may already be showing such disdain for him.

As bad as that may be, people do love the Queen’s subtlety.

Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom was a memorable one that people will surely talk about for years to come. For instance, you can bet people won’t soon let up on the fact that he had no idea the United Kingdom and Great Britain weren’t interchangeable terms.
