Camilla also has the bust to pull off the stomachers. You may see those again. I know they wore corsets then, Queen Mary had a huge bust.

Queen Mary had bearing and could wear every piece of jewelry and look proper, even too much. Camilla, slouching, can never pull this off.

I agree, but the whale bones helped QM. She could not bend.

I agree with you, methinks you will see the re-emergence of some of the stomachers once Camilla is Queen. We may get to see them on the coronation, and then again on some state occassions.

Tiaras and Jewels Camilla might use as Queen / Princess Consort

I think Camilla will continue to wear the jewels from QEQM that she is already wearing and adding some of the larger brooches that QEII are currently wearing.
I think she will continue to wear the Boucheron Tiara to most occassions, alternate it sometimes with the Oriental Circlet Tiara and maybe using the Dehli Durbar Tiara to very Grand occassions like state visits to and from other monarchies. George IV State Diadem for official portraits and for the state opening of the parliament. I want to see the whole Kent Amethyst Demi Parure being used regularly.
And how lovely it would be if Princess Margaret's Persian Turqoise Parure have made it back to the main line Camilla would look fantastic in it.

One thing about Charles, he likes seeing the royal ladies properly rocking some jewels. I think Camilla and Catherine will use the heirlooms whenever they can.

The Boucheron really seems to be a firm favourite and I also believe that Camilla will continue to wear it. But I think she'll add some others to the rotation, especially the Vladimir and the kokoshnik. Both are big enough to look good on her. I do hope that she'll prefer the Oriental circlet over the Burmese ruby tiara.

Standing in line at the grocery and reading the tabs yet again proclaiming that Camilla is killing the Queen and hates Kate, who is slowly poisoning Charles and... Well you get the idea. Standing there, looking at the rags, I have thought how the perfect tabloid fodder will be when QEII dies and Camilla becomes whatever we call her then and the lady of the vaults.

Every time Camilla wears any of the family jewelry she has not worn previously, there will be an article about how Kate, Sophie, Anne, Zara, Bea, Eugenie, etc. hate her for not sharing! "Bea trips Camilla down stairs because granny promised the Jardine Star to her!" (and yes that bad grammar was intentional on my part - it's how the Enquirer would write it).

"Sophie out for blood as Camilla scoops up another handful of sparklers." "Lady Loise cries heself to sleep after being told she will be loaned a tiara only over Cam's cold, dead body." "Zara fumes that the Jack Russels are fitted out in diamonds, while Mia goes without."

This stuff will practically write itself.

I bet when Camilla is Queen she wears the Oriental circlet, as it's associated closely with the Queen Mother and the Queen has only worn it once.

Almost every tiara and Royal jewelry has been worn by previous royals. Queen Mary's jewels have been worn by others. Same QEQM and it will be the same with QEII and even Diana. The Cambridge Lovers Knots Tiara was Queen Mary's , inherited by QEII, loaned to Diana. It will be worn again in time.

Well, there are six tiaras that the Queen has worn frequently* during her reign: the Girls of GB and Ireland tiara, Q Alexandra's kokoshnik, the Vadimir, the Burmese rubies, sapphire tiara and Brazilian aquamarines. Half of them, rubies, aqua and sapphires, were made/mounted for QEII and haven't been worn by previous family members.

It remains to be seen which of these tiaras are to Camilla's taste. But she will have access to all of them. Personally I think that the kokoshnik and the Vladimir would look smashing on her. The girls might look a bit too deinty and delicated for her sull head of hair. And the last three are simply not much to my taste, so if Camilla goes for colour, I'd hope for the Oriental circlet.


* The fringe was rarely worn, Oriental circlet only once, and some others only while she still was a Princess or in the early years of her reign.
