Camilla look her best in single strand necklaces and I think she looks great.

Probably my favourite of the Duchess' necklaces [a close win over her Amethyst 'Heart']. The simplicity and elegance of its design simply sing out.

Good to see the emeralds emerge again, it had been a long time.

I love her emeralds. Camilla rocks the big jewels, tiaras and necklaces. Even if old and not as fashionable as Sophie and Kate, when it comes to jewels she is the most exciting. She does justice to the queen's big bling like none other.

But the emeralds are her private pieces. Boy do the middle eastern royals gift them some incredible bling. Diana got sapphires , Camilla emeralds. Her ruby collars are also from Saudi Arabia. The queen got diamonds.

Just not a fan of that setting at all...not my style.

I want to like them...but they don't appeal to me.

Beautiful tiara. Not very often a commoner bride brings a tiara in.

Seems odd seeing her in such a small tiara though. She rocks the big ones.

I'm not wild about the design of that tiara, though the stones are quite nice. I dont like the way the center portion sticks way up by itself.

I'm almost positive the emeralds and rubies are official gifts from Saudis. They are Camilla's to use but officially belong to the Crown.

The same for the jewels given to Sophie Wessex by Bahrain.

The commoner bride's grandmother was King Edward VII's mistress. Lots of perks. Diana was a commoner, although, an aristocrat, she had her own tiara, too.

Diana was an aristocrat, while not Royal, certainly not in the commoner ranks. She didn't have her own tiara. The spencer tiara belongs to the wife of earl spencer. Or the daughters of the earl can borrow it.

Camilla may come from the gentry, but she is a commoner. She has some aristocratic blood but far back and minor.

Anyone who is not The Queen or the holder of a substantive peerage is a commoner.

Nobility does not extend to the wife or children of a peer. As posh as Diana was, she was still a commoner by the British definition

The British definition means that the twin brother of a Peer, born 10 minutes later, from exactly the same parents, having the same DNA, is a "commoner", is most remarkable.

In most continental systems of nobility Diana would have been seen as a "Hochgeboren" (Highborn) and this prestigious noble lady.

I always understood that Diana was Noble...not a commoner.

'Commoner' comes from the ability to vote in elections for, and sit in, the House of Commons.

It's not a pejorative. Prior to 1999, hereditary peers had been constitutionally disqualified from being electors to, or members of, the House of Commons.

Hereditary peers had always sat in the House of Lords.

The term doesn't mean as much today as hereditary peers can also now sit in the Commons.

For me Diana is every inch a noble, but in the British system anyone who is no Peer, is a commoner, it seems. Look at the Queen's 4th Prime Minister, Sir Alexander Douglas-Home, 14th Earl of Home. He had to give up his peerage to be able to sit in the House of Commons (what is in a name...).

Upon giving up his peerage, Sir Alec, son of the 13th Earl of Home and of Lady Lilian Lambton (daughter of the 4th Earl of Durham) suddenly became a "commoner" in British eyes while he was of course very well rooted in British aristocracy.
