KEY POINTS

  • Queen Elizabeth may have sent a secret message to Donald Trump when they met last year
  • Her Majesty reportedly threw shade at the POTUS with her Burmese ruby tiara
  • The Queen's Burmese ruby tiara could reportedly ward off the devil 

Queen Elizabeth was accused of throwing shade at Donald Trump during the POTUS’s visit to London last year.

During their engagement, Her Majesty wore a new Burmese tiara that contains 96 rubies. The headpiece was a gift to the monarch by the people from Burma.

According to Express, Burmese people believe that rubies can help protect the wearer from the 96 different diseases that could afflict the body. As such, when the Queen stepped out in public to meet Trump while wearing the tiara, some people were convinced that this was her way of trying to ward off the devil.

However, it is also possible that the Queen just wanted to wear that particular tiara because it means something for her.

Meanwhile, Her Majesty is known for sending secret messages to the POTUS during their meetings. On the “Pod Save the Queen” podcast, royal author Sali Hughes said that the Queen is very particular with the clothes that she wears when meeting the president of the United States.

She said that the Queen opted to wear a white long-sleeved gown during her engagement with the POTUS to let him know that she’s neutral.

“That would have been a very conscious decision. But also, at state banquets, she will wear a sash and medals. A pale color allows those to stand out. But absolutely, your suspicion is correct, every effort is made not to play favorites, not to be political,” she said.

And if and when the monarch gets bored with her conversation with Trump or her other guests, she is also known for sending secret signals that could end their discussion.

Former royal butler Grant Harrold told Sky News that the Queen would usually shake hands with the person that she is talking to and give him a very light push to end their conversation.

“That’s how you know your time is up. That is not going to happen here but the Queen very good at running the conversation down and making sure that he is escorted off the property,” he said.
