Tacky really, considering how many others are available for use.
The picture of Camilla in the Cambridge Lovers Knot tiara is just a photoshop. The picture used is from the ones released to mark Camilla's 60th birthday, and were taken at Highgrove. This was the first time she wore the collet necklace that was formerly used by QEQM. Camilla has NEVER publicly worn the Lovers Knot tiara.

I love the photoshopped wedding picture of William and Catherine. Looks better than the actual wedding photos imo.

I don't think there's any chance Camilla would ever wear the same piece of jewellery that Diana wore.
I've read that there are three separate ones.

That picture is photoshopped from A to Z. And a bad photoshop even.

I think that is one of the nicest photographs I have ever seen of PC and DOC together.

Whether the same or different - in my mind it does not matter. Once you are married to the POW - you get to wear that brooch. It's part of the gig. Just like wearing regimental badges - it is part of the job.

I loved Diana, but I would be the first to say that had she lived and been publicly possessive of the jewels that she could no longer wear, that I would call that petty. You can't hang with Mother Teresa and worry for the poor and then demand that anything of value that you wore be locked in a vault in your memory. It's laughable.
And that 2011 DM article made me laugh a lot. As if the woman with the scuffed heels who wore wheat to her wedding could have cared if Kate wore flowers. And as if flowers and a tiara have never been used together. But that was what the DM was peddling back then.

D.O.C also has her own family tiaria, as I understand it that she wore on her first wedding day and has worn recently.

Yes indeed, her own family's diadem is regularly seen. See picture. Like Diana's family diadem was regularly seen. See picture.

To be back on the tracks, i find utterly sad, if not disturbing, that a part of the public could believe this VERY BAD potoshop. I presume it's a reassuring proof that, for them, Camilla is indeed the consumate and insensitive b... they had always imagined.

I believe that as a rule the current DOC tries not to wear any further jewellery closely associated with Diana, Princess of Wales. There was also much speculation as I remember it at the time of their marriage regarding her title and how it was legally possible for her have a Wales title but it was believed that The Cornwall one was a more, em, tactful fit. Her engagement ring is one of the late Queen Mothers, she has worn a tiaria closely associated with her so I suspect there may be more treasures coming from that direction? I also like her modern dragon fly brooches.

There are other such photoshops out there and they are done and posted with the aim of causing dissent. The motives are vile although I have to admit I find it difficult to understand how anyone could think it was real. The same applies to other photoshops;

But this is my favourite photoshop;

But since this is the only occasion that Camilla has worn the Delhi Durbar tiara, I have to wonder if it was a one time loan'

Oh! Thanks Muriel, I will tell my mother. That will keep her heart rate at a more acceptable level.

How embarrassing, I totally fell for it! I misjudged Cammy.

Rags time,or ragtime,anyway,below the belt..Taste is a wonderfull thing when one has it,no taste is a nuisance when one elaborates over nada and nada again intended to do the above only...the wairing of a whopper or two by HRH The Duchess...What a laugh,seriously.

Actually Lucien, you're absolutely right. This thread does always seem to end up discussing the size and merit of particular jewels and who is deemed fit or not to wear them.

And then there are the photoshops that are created for no other reason than to cause further aggravation.
