"Some people interpreting the queen wearing that brooch as an act of defiance against President Trump", she said.

"That by itself is amusing enough". But it gets better. It's not just any American brooch. The next time she met up with Trump she chose to wear a sapphire jubilee brooch, a gift from Canada.

"Do tell me it's all a coincidence from the woman who cut her teeth on Winston Churchill" and maintained her original position, explaining that the Queen carefully made sure she did not have to open her doors to the President by calling the visit a "working" one instead of a "state" visit. Considering the enormous size of the Monarch's collection of glittering brooches - a signature accessory of hers - the choice to wear a piece presented to her by the Obamas seems far from coincidental.

The Obamas gave the royal matriach the vintage 1950 brooch, decked out with moss agate, 14-karat yellow gold and diamonds, according to Politico. The tradition often takes place during visits from foreign officials, including during former President Obama's visit in 2011.

The Republican firebrand historically pulled the United States from the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year that Barack Obama helped put together.
