I'm with you - I think on Her Majesty's part it was disrespectful to lend a tiara identified solely w/Queen Mary to Camilla.

But tiaras were meant to be worn. It would be a waste of a great work of art not to have it worn, and the wife of the Prince of Wales is a credible person for the honor. Of course, the Princess Royal or Countess of Wessex could also be, but I think it was lent to the Duchess of Cornwall to make a statement. The Queen's message through this action? I suppose she is trying to tell us that she and her family stand behind Camilla as Charles's wife and they consider her as the rightful future Queen Consort. Queen Mary was a Queen Consort, so only another Queen Consort or QC in the Waiting should wear this tiara. If Diana were alive and still married to Charles, I'd say it should be Diana to wear it, but this is not the case. It's Camilla, so this is appropriate, in my opinion.

Queen Mary left it to the Queen and she did what she wanted to with it. She gave it Charles's wife to wear. Which is who I believe is supposed to wear it the future kings wife. Someone do correct me if I am wrong.

Corazon, I appreciate this, but I did not find this other tiara you speak of. I looked in here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...0&page=1&pp=20
Maybe there's some other thread I should have gone too? I thought you mean the Diana jewels thread, and this one seems to be about Diana jewels.... :confused:

This had better not start turning into yet another thread about Diana.

People who want to talk about Diana may do so in the threads about her. It's getting very tiresome seeing Camilla threads being constantly hijacked by people wanting to talk about Diana and post pictures of Diana. I'm going to start deleting them both here and in the British forum if this keeps up.

Since this thread is on its tenth page, I'm going to close it and start up another one. And it had better stay on topic.

The new thread is here:
