Why does the Queen wear five poppies at Remembrance Day while Kate and Camilla wear three? 1

On her left breast the Monarch wore five poppies, above an enormous diamond brooch.

The piece was the Queen Mother’s Shell Brooch, and it looks like an oyster with a shell made of solid diamonds, strings of diamond hanging from it and a large pearl in the middle.

Many questioned exactly why the Queen was wearing a bouquet of poppies, while Kate and Camilla wore three each.

There have been suggestions that the Queen’s five poppies represent each service in the war, the Army, the Navy, the RAF, the Civil Defence and women.
