Aha, so the plot thickens. I had always heard there were two brooches, so which story is correct, I wonder? Nevertheless, this brooch wasn't Diana's personal property but that of the Crown, so the current Princess of Wales has the right to wear it. It's just that something Diana wore is interpreted by the press to have been confiscated by Camilla. Muddying the waters, indeed.

hope the horse & jockey that took a tumble yesterday are okay- Camilla & Zara looked aghast in pictures, surely it was quite shocking.

Regarding th PoW brooch, I prefer it worn as a pendant.

If this is so, then the wearing of the brooch might be part of a well-planned modus operandi to show Camilla more and more as Charles' rightful wife, as Princess of Wales and future queen. The time has now come when there must be plans on work to make the switch from HM to Charles as easy as possible. My guess is that after the shock of the DoE's health problems last christmas it is now even HM's wish to proceed.

I agree with you. I think the time has probably come for Camilla to no longer be shy of her position as the Princess of Wales, and a future Queen. The sooner we all get used to it, the better it will be. She has demonstrated that she can be a diligent and strong member of the royal family.

You can see a more complete look in this picture.
I like the colour, but not so sure about the dress itself, at least not when Camilla is sitting. When she's standing, the dress looks quite pretty.

Six children from St Peter’s Primary School - Amie Sott, Charlie Aslet, Sienna Pascal, Natalie Stott, Conrad Brant and Charlie Duncan - visited Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall on March 15. They talked with the Duchess about their Big Jubilee Lunch and helped themselves to come cupcakes before asking her to become a patron of the event. The Duchess accepted the patronage.

Camilla has worn this brooch before. She has also worn another Prince of Wales feathers brooch - the one she wore for her wedding for instance.

There are a number of Prince of Wales feathers brooches so I don't know why they are saying only one - maybe only one with the emerald attached. This is a link to her wedding outfit where she is wearing a Prince of Wales feathers brooch but not the same one she wore to Cheltenham.

I much prefer the way Camilla wears it to how Diana wore it.

I enjoyed the way Diana wore it myself. It was different and suited her style well.

At the end of the day, such jewellery is initially comissioned with the expectation that it shall be passed down and worn by various people. It was not the personal property of Diana, rather, was at her disposal as Princess of Wales.

I also agree. I think this is one of the few times, if ever, that Camilla's worn this piece and it is definitely a statement that she is the Princess of Wales and will eventually step into the role of Queen Consort that cannot be denied her. She's paid her dues, and now it's time to reap the "reward." Wearing this brooch sends a clear message, I feel.

She has worn this brooch before, in 2006, and the DM basically wrote exactly the same thing then. Camilla steps out in diamond brooch Diana used to wear | Mail Online

That is a very pretty piece of jewelry. From what I can tell, Camila wears it quite well.

Even if it is the same piece, I think it is a good idea for Camilla to be wearing it. Enough time has passed. The more she wears the brooch, the less controversial her doing so will become. People will get used to it and accept it as being a piece to be worn by the Princess of Wales rather than being Diana's.

So Diana's and Camilla's brooch MIGHT be the same ( loaned by the Crown of course, not a personnal property).

It would be a very interesting subject if it was not regulary hijacked for some well known bashing...
OK, if there is only one brooch at it has been confirmed, in writing, with one of the posters on RJOTW, I would love to see that confirmation. It is not a lot to ask and in fact makes one wonder why someone from The Royal Collection has not clarified this before now.

As to the brooch (either), Camilla has worn it before with the same rubbish spat out from the Mail. But I am more interested in the "emerald set" you mention. Can you tell me what it comprises?

Camilla wore all of these emerald items (if the pendant is indeed the same).

Thank you for the pictures, Nico . These jewels look stunning against the green velvet of her dress.

I loved the fact that it was her who opened the door, and not a butler. Wonder if the kids knew it was going to happen like that, because they went into their presentation mode right away. Watching Camila interact with children is such joy. She's very natural and it comes across very, very well.
