Jewels fit for a Queen! A radiant Duchess of Cornwall dazzles in diamonds as she joins Her Majesty at Westminster Palace

A confident Duchess of Cornwall nearly stole the show as she arrived looking wonderful in a regal white gown and diamond tiara that echoed the Queen's ensemble in Westminster today.

Just over a year since she made her debut appearance at the State Opening of Parliament, her repeat visit today will be seen as a victory for Prince Charles who has long wanted his wife to play a greater role in royal life.

And it seems his work has paid off after a radiant Camilla drew admiring glances and loud cheers from the crowds outside the Palace of Westminster as she made her way inside on her husband's arm.

Camilla can't help her smile of course, but I've noticed it is rather a strange one. The outer ends of her mouth remain open, exposing teeth and gums, and only  the middle portion has the lips meeting.

I suppose photographers can catch royals and celebrities at odd moments, eating etc., when the facial expressions aren't at their best!

Go figure, she's waering Queen Mary's jewels and it must tickle her pink; her ancestress was just a mistress (among so many others) and never dreamed that her descendent would end up wearing the jewels of a Queen who never received her, Keppel. Camilla has likely made her ancestress proud.

I think she just has an odd expression   in that photo -

Charles also looked rather sad

Listening - HM still has a strong firm voice - none of that quavering one will often note as people get older.

The article is such an obvious one - even the captions under the pics proclaim Camilla as "princess" looking

I think Queen Mary had the most superb jewels ever, (besides the Romanovs.) She was certainly a woman who loved wearing them!
 It must really have broken her heart when Edward VIII snaffled all the jewellery Queen Alexandra had left him for his future wife, and they ended up with Wallis and away from the Royal Family.

notice hw swollen PC's hands look - yes he has his sausage fingers - but his hands do look more swollen than normal - wonder if he has hypertension?

I've noticed that Prince Charles often seems to have swollen and red hands. I've heard it speculated that it could be a symptom of rosacea, but I don't know much about that disorder.


Title: Re: Jewels fit for a Queen! A radiant Duchess of Cornwall dazzles in diamonds
Post by: cate1949 on June 05, 2014, 08:03:41 am
the facial redness is probably from the rosacea - Harry obviously has it too - just do not understand why they don't get it treated - is rather a simple matter -

usually rosacea affects the face not the hands and it should not cause swelling like that

I know his fingers do look swollen normally - but here is hand looks swollen -

I don't know why the DM could not have made the Queen the "star" instead of focusing on Camilla. I wonder if Charles pays the DM for his PR of this woman.  The Queen actually looks a whole lot better than Camilla who gawks at the cameras and has some strange looks on her face--and not to mention the hair and the bad undergarments. It's the Emperor's New Clothes all over again. And there are a whole lot of scathing comments coming into the DM.

I wonder if Charles is sad because his Mummy said she would not abdicate after reading the news about the Spanish royals. Or he realizes he's stuck with Camilla --he does not look radiantly happy to put it mildly.

There is nothing radiant or dazzling about Camilla--she has the cat got the cream look--she did not become mistress for nothing--it paid off thanks to her sugar daddy.

wouldn't want to be in her place - lusting after a crown for your entire life must be exhausting. and also - if something happens to Charles she may not even become a queen. excuse my ignorance but wasn't she only going to get a queen consort, or i am mistaken

She would be called Queen Camilla but she in effect would be consort not a Queen Regnant.

I love the Queens dress, it is lovely  :flower:

He has the same expression when he and Diana went to Korea in 1992. It's "trouble in paradise" with him and Camilla and/or his mother telling him she's not abdicating.

Camilla appears scary looking with that smile--the dress looks lumpy on her. She has lots of people waiting on her could she not get a better dresser or somebody who can be  honest with her about how her clothes look with bad foundation garments.

I have the opposite opinion, I would say this is one of the best dresses she has worn. The spanx effect on the middle suits her body type. It is less nightgown and more like a dress.

It bunches up a bit and is too tight. It makes her look lumpy. She is better off with the more flowing gown style. IMO anyway.

IMO they've all looked unhappy and put out since Kate's latest bum scandal, something serious went on behind closed doors and they're having trouble covering it with their body language, it's totally showing.

Sorry but Cammie has never been radiant. She looks more and more like a man drag.  :nervous:

Those made her look like she comes from bed. I liked this one because it makes her have a bit of waist.

What surprises me is how badly white looks on her and how much she likes it. I thought it maybe because of age but the Queen looks awesome on white.

Duchess of Dazzle: How Camilla's amassed a treasure trove of jewels - thanks to Charles and the Saudis
By INGRID SEWARD
PUBLISHED: 01:24 GMT, 21 February 2015 | UPDATED: 12:42 GMT, 21 February 2015


A decade on from her marriage to the heir to the throne, the Duchess of Cornwall has built up an enviable jewellery collection and, as this week has shown, enjoys nothing more than showing it off.
On Tuesday, Camilla dazzled crowds at a London film premiere with her magnificent diamond and ruby necklace, which was almost blinding in its sparkle. The rubies are thought to have been a gift from Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, who died last month, and who feted her and Prince Charles on a trip to the Middle East last year.
The necklace, which had a bracelet and earrings to match, wouldn’t have looked out of place on a Kardashian — but Camilla, who has the ability to carry off ostentatious pieces with dignity, wore it well.

In Dutch we have a saying; you can give a monkey a diamond ring, it is and will remain an ugly thing.

The same with Camilla...no matter how many jewels she has, she will remain the woman who broke up two families by bedding the Prince of Wales.
If she had any decency, she would have kept him at bay the moment he married Diana. But she wanted it all...be a royal mistress but not the royal obligations.

Horrible woman who is, for all her so-called 'landed gentry' ancestry, just as coarse as Carole Middleton.
