I think that the reason the Lovers Knot Tiara has never been worn much is that it is quite heavy. If we really think about it Diana wore the Spencer Tiara more often and I seem to recall reading that the Queen only wore it once or twice.

I think that Camilla will prefer something much more understated like the Rose & Crescent or the Strathmore Rose Tiara.

at the end of the day, when the Queen has pass away and Charles is King, won't then Camilla get a free hand at all the crown jewels?

I hate to see her wearing all the lovely jewels as i don't think she deserve or has the rights to wear them.

As Queen (or Princess Consort) of the United Kingdom Camilla will have every right to wear whatever jewels she pleases.

And to get some people even more wound up, if she is crowned Queen when Charles is crowned King in Westminster Abbey, then she will have her own CROWN made for the occasion, as previous Queen consorts have done.

We could start a new thread: "design a Crown for Queen Camilla."

I think that WHEN Camilla is crowned Queen Charles will want her to wear his grandmother's crown.

I seriously doubt that Camilla would be stupid enough to wear jewellery that was identifiable as Diana's anytime soon (or, more likely, any time ever). The royal jewellery collection is probably the largest of all the houses and I don't think that Camilla will have a problem finding stuff that hasn't been worn. Besides the "political" problem w/ parading around in jewellery that was worn by Diana, I have a feeling that the women's tastes are quite different.

As for when/if Charles takes the throne, I'm sure that Camilla will have access to anything she wants (or at least anything he allows her to have access to). As for her being crowned...who knows. I mean, they don't have morganatic marriages in the UK so, unless legislation is passed indicating the contrary, upon Charles accession Camilla *will* be the Queen, whether she is referred to by that title or not.

I don't think she'd wear anything Charles didn't want her to.

The "Royal Jewels Message Board" has just had the following suggestion posted for a redesign of Queen Mary's Loop Tiara.

I think it would be wonderful for the Duchess of Cornwall

Camilla should not wear anything identified with Diana. That is not appopriate in my opinion and I would think Camilla would not do anything more to invite a comparison between herself and Diana.

Wearing the Queen Mum's crown, if she ever is crowned is not appropriate either. A new one should be designed.

im sure i would agree with posts i did read all posts! because Camilla cant wores Diana's famous Cambridges tiara! because the HM Queen gaven Princess Diana for wedding gifts because Princess Diana had 2 tiara she had Spencer tiara from her grandmother's because she wores tiara for state trips and banquets also! but Diana had choker necklace also!

i would agree with posts but Camilla would used Queen Mother's tiara

I'm afraid this may be a case of damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. If she doesn't wear the Queen Mother's crown, it means that a new crown will have to be designed and made, which will be expensive, and will lead to accusations of wasting money and thinking she's too good for the Queen Mother's crown; if she does wear it, she'll be accused of insulting the Queen Mother by claiming the right to wear her crown. The press will be able to spin it such that they cause a controversy whatever she does.

I wonder if anyone else agrees with this assesment:

The general public has no idea about the specific jewels of the various royal families. They expect their Royals to wear glittering jewels and crowns (when appropriate), but most people could not identify any given tiara or necklace. It is only people like us who have a Mania for these things who would actually notice. The press will get their information about the jewels from the Palace. So my guess is that Camilla could wear almost any tiara or crown and get away with it; the cambridge tiara would be an exception since Diana was so associated with it and the public would recognize that one. But many of the tiaras that have been discussed for Camilla have not been seen in years and most folks would not recognize them or know their histories. What do you all think?

I think you're right, Reynaud, except that if the press thinks that it can stir up a controversy based on just about anything in order to make a profit, it'll do it. People who wouldn't have known the difference between the Queen Mother's crown and the royal crown of Outer Mongolia will suddenly turn into the Keepers Of The Queen Mother's Sacred Memory if the press can manipulate them into the sort of righteous fury that sells newspapers.

Course, it may at least educate a few people about what these crowns actually are and when and why they were made.

I think she'll look good in a tiara. I have no ideas about the tiaras in possession of the British Royal family, but there has to be more than enough different styles of tiaras to fit every person, regardless of the way they look.

It actually isn't a tiara. It is a necklace.

The large opal is worth a small fortune on it's own and the colour of the opals in the earings would make them quite valuable also.

I think it would look sensational against a very plain black or dark blue dress.
