I like the rich purple velvet colour. It's a perfect choice for this occasion.

It is very old, Camilla had it when she was still married to APB. She wore it quite a lot early in her marriage to Charles, but less so subsequently

Pretty...I believe she also owns a set of pansy brooches, too, if I'm not mistaken. And I see she's got her favorite pearl earrings on from way back as well.

ETA - And since I mentioned the pansy brooches, I felt I had to research and find them so here they are pinned onto a fabulous and complementary outfit:

They are beautiful and displayed to perfection as you say. I don't remember seeing them before, so many thanks.

Is anybody able to comment on the provenance of the diamond brooch Camilla wore at an engagement in Portsmouth today? Has it been seen on her earlier?

I was wondering if the brooch was some type of regimental badge, given the occasion.

According to The Express " The diamond brooch was a gift from a friend and based on the rosette worn as a badge by Admiral Lord Nelson on his bicorne hat." It is a lovely item, has she worn it before?

That is a lovely brooch. Thank you for the picture and the background information. I hope the Duchess will wear it again.

Thank you for the information on the brooch, Elly C. It does resemble a badge and is very beautiful; hope to see it worn again.

It is a fabulous brooch.. It reminds me of a Fringe tiara, some how.

Yes, that's exactly what I thought as well.

Today for the visit to Fortnum and Mason the Duchess of Cornwall wore a leek brooch:

It looks a lot like the one the Queen wore many years ago:

It does look a lot like Her Majesty's Welsh Guards Leek Brooch. If it's indeed the one, that it was a lovely gesture to wear the brooch on this particular engagement with her mother-in-law.

Looks the same to me; was it worn because today was St. David's Day? A nice nod to the feast day.

I really love the simplicity and elegance of the Leek brooch. It's lovely that the Duchess chose to wear it on St. David's Day.

It is a shame that every photo I have seen of this Leek Brooch has been blurry. Would love to see a nice clear closeup pic of this brooch.

I'm sorry but this appears to be the clearest crop of the brooch. Hopefully, someone else will be able to provide a better picture.
Incidentally, this wasn't the first time Camilla wore the brooch; if I'm not mistaken, she wears the small leek brooch in this picture as well.
