Fully agree with you. Camilla is the second most senior lady and future queen of the UK. How much more "grand royal" than that does it get?

Ditto! But let's not forget that when the occasion calls for formal wear she has the use of her 'real' tiara's: The utterly fabulous "Delhi Durbar" and the magnificently glorious "Bucheron, both of which are a credit to her position as the Duchess of Cornwall, wife of the heir to the throne.

She also has her own family one and was gifted both a ruby and a sapphire one that (thankfully) we rarely see. There really is no need for people to start popping spurious photoshopped tiara's on her head. Her Majesty and Prince Charles have both ensured she has more than got that base covered.

But she has worn the delhi durbar only one time. Could it be that it was an onetime loan and no permanent loan like the Boucheron Honeycomb tiara?

I think the point is that Camilla has access to some serious jewels from HM, and does not need to resort to using the Lovers Knot, given its association with Diana.

IMO the reason the Delhi Durbar has not been used much is its origins at the Delhi Durbar in 1911, and how people of sub-continental origin in Britain might view such a symbol of British imperialism and subjugation.

I'd like to see Camilla in the Durbar again. I can't understand why she wore it just the once and why it was chosen for her first tiara appearance at all if it's not to be worn again?

That said, I think the Durbar would be a good choice of tiara once Charles becomes King, myself. That's if Camilla actually likes it.

As for what people of sub continental origin in Britain might say about it, well, imo, they are either choosing or willing to reside in Britain so tough luck. The royal vault should not be made to play hostage!

And some may find such a response rather harsh, but it's long been an item of jewellery owned by the BRF and was worn as recently as 2005. And if I recall rightly, it's most recent appearance did not muster any discontent. It's not like the Koh-I-Noor is being worn with it nowadays.

But, I speak only for myself.

Actually i think the Delhi Durbar tiara shpuld be worn be the reigning Queen or Queen consort for special occasions like Queen Siliva does it with the bragnza tiara, those for example incoming StateVisitis from other monarchies.
I think there would be plenty other tiaras to give Camilla access to without to have to use the Lovers Knot tiara.

Fair point. That said a few points come to mind:

1) People of sub-continantal extraction now represent about 2.5m of the UK population of 55-60m. They are prosperous and increasingly, economically, socially and culturally influential in the UK, so there feelings are worth a lot more to the UK establishment now than say, 15 years ago.

2) India plays an increasingly important role on the world stage, politically and economically, evidenced by the number of trips British PMs have made to the sub-continent recently. An increasongly confident India could well start to raise issues in relation to the Kohinoor and the Delhi Durbar if these jewels were seen much in public. If I was in HMs shoes, I would simply leave them in the vault for a few more centuries rather than risk a debate on the matter.

Just my thoughts!

...or maybe Camilla simply didn't like the tiara on her or found it too heavy. As practical as she is maybe the Honeycomb is finally the best option for her? ("State banquet? Let's get the mighty Bouch again").

For such a large extraction then I personally see it rather fitting that such stones be worn by a future Princess Consort (or Queen) who shall not only represent the caucasion subject in due course, but those who are of an oriental ethnicity aswell.

Instead of seeing it as a model of repression, why not view it as an item of cultural cohesion in modern day Britain! At least, that's my wishfull reasoning

I would love to see Camilla in the fringe tiara and necklace, just as HM wore it in the recent picture for the NZ jubilee portrait.

That said, I think Camilla may choose to use the Kokoshnik instead, and probably leave the fringe tiara for Catherine.

As the Wife of the Future King & One day the Queen (or Kings Consort), HRH The Duchess of Cornwall will have access to many beautiful Jewells.
I look forward to seeing her wear many Tiara's and Necklaces

I suspect she may follow precedent and wear Queen Victoria's coronation collet necklace.

This or the balance of it is not quite comfortable or it's slightly too wide or narrow in the base, etc.
