I would assume that's the case, especially on long flights where she might sleep.

Sarah Brown curtseys to Camilla in Africa

This time last year, it was hard to imagine the Prime Minister´s wife putting one foot behind the other, dipping her knee and curtseying out of respect for a member of the royal family.

The Queen is the Queen. White gown - diamond wedding celebrations.

But Camilla ... Too much as for one time !!! - big diamond tiara and big five rows diamond necklace... What was she thinking?! Two or three rows will be enough.
Her gown wasn't the best choice specially the top of it. It looks like a sack or something.

The Duchess of Cornwall's appearance at tonight's dinner is the perfect answer to the 'How much is too much?' question in the Royal Jewels section of this Forum.
Glittering she might be - or rather: Her diamonds are - but IMHO it turns into a Bling Overkill.
Doesn't strike me as very smart or sensitive to appear decked out like this in such a poor country either.

Camilla's necklace is almost touching the floor and with that huge tiara her whole look is way OTT. She always seems to do this, it's as if she reaches for everything in the jewel box and throws it all on at once, she needs to tone it down a bit. That necklace (like the tiara) belonged to the Queen Mother. It looks like Charles inherited most of her jewels as almost all of the stuff Camilla wears was once worn by the Queen mum.

The Queen Mother left her property to the Queen in a sovereign-to-sovereign transfer. She might have specified that her jewels should go to Charles for his wife, or she might have given them to Charles during her lifetime, but I don't think she would have left them to him in her will.

My God Camilla looks every inch a Byzantine Queen!
That dress HM is wearing is LOVELY!
Elspeth, do you or anyone know how the security is there? All those jewels that they are wearing is a fortune!!

One should never forget that it's not fixed that Charles will be the successor of HM as Head of the Commonwealth. So what Camilla does is to show off that the Uk still has the glittering power to bedazzle the public. IMHO it was not her private choice of jewels and clothing as she normal dresses rather demurely but a statement of the BRF!

The dinner this evening was an event royal fans should love. A Queen and a Duchess showed some of their greatest jewels: tiaras, necklesses, bracelets, the whole glamour of royalty.
Okay, you can like the pieces or not, but to talk about an ´overkill´ or that it is not ´sensitive´ to wear the jewels in an poor country is too much for me.

When we do this we also can start here a new topic and talk about the sense of the monarchy ( and of every royalty).

Eeek!

I think the three strands would have been far more flattering with this evening gown. And the Queen Mother's diamond drop earrings instead of the one's worn. But even this gown isn't the nicest I've seen her wear.

All in all, could have done much better and I don't really like how the Duchess wears pieces which outshine the Queen.

And from the full length photo, that daidem looks massive on her head.

Well, I say Camilla's cracked it. She's the wife of the Prince of Wales, she's our future Queen Consort and by G-d she had every right to show it. The dress is gorgeous, the RFO is proudly in place, the diamonds are fantastic and that tiara was simply made for her. What's the point of being a Princess if you can't show it? Some might say overkill, I say it's HRH giving a {remove unnecessary comment - Elspeth} slap to Richard Kay and the ilk who detract, detract, detract. She's a Royal, she was born to be a Royal and now she's telling those critics who'd rather rip her apart than get a life of their own, that she's arrived and she's here to stay. Outshining the Queen? No - just shining as a Princess. Bravo Ma'am, bravo.
