What are the small jeweled portraits pinned to Her Majesty’s sash?
These are royal family orders. Female members of the family receive them from the monarch. The Queen wears the orders of her father and grandfather, while the rest of the royal family wears her order. The Queen’s order is her likeness, surrounded by diamonds and nestled on a yellow ribbon.
The family order of King George VI is pinned with a pink ribbon; King George V is blue.
