unfortunatley the press just are not interested in anybody else except the main group at these events anymore. many of the female guests have fabulous family jewels on and dresses but unless an interested royal reporter/journalist attends events then we will continue to see rare glimpses of royals and other guests.

Many people thought that this would be the tiara that she would get and wear at ther first royal banquet. The Durbar was a suprise. Can she wear both know or was the Durbar a one time thing.

"PJ25"

She can wear whatever she wants, as long as it has HM the Queen's approval.

I wish she would do something with that fair....I feel so Charlies' Angels everytime I see her

I know what you mean. I am ok with it during the day but I wish she would do something nice with it for a state banquet. A nice chingon or maybe something more complex. Her hair doesnt take over the Durbar but the Honeycomb is kinda buried in it.

HAHA...EXACTLY "PJ25"

During the day its her trademark 'doo'...just like the Queen's handbag!

But for a State Banquet C'mon Camz...You can do better than this. Its just so, so....expected & boring!

Maybe something like this, perhaps? And even if it does mean a trim, I think it would be worth it!

And...without a doubt, a tiara would look much better! But, the Duchess cannot have this exquisite Austrian jewel...purely on loan.

Its not so in your face and is really, quite flattering.

Yes it is, but a lot of pieces were removed in that pic. Looks much nicer.

Yes Elspeth, the Queen looks none too happy to be wearing it in that last pic!

I rather like the aquamarine tiara but it overwhelms the Queen.

Camilla with trim hair looks very nice, better than her retro Farah Fawcett's hair do.

Camilla owns, or has access to, a family tiara which she wore at her wedding to Mr Parker-Bowles and at a Buckingham Palace reception late last year. There aren't any good pictures of it (it got lost in her hair) but you could check the Camilla Jewels thread in the Royal Jewels Forum where you might find some "tiara glimpses" as opposed to "tiara sightings". :)

I don't think her hair is long enough for an effective chignon, for most other styles she would have to use so much gel to keep it 'in order', it seems to be very fine hair with a mind of it's own.

a family tiara which she wore at her wedding
Did she wear one at her wedding? She wore the feathery creation at her wedding and a family tiara at a reception at BP but I don't remember seeing a tiara at the wedding.
