Royal Faux Pas? Camilla Dons Diana’s Jewels



Royal accessories have a habit of staying in the family, as Kate's engagement ring shows. But it's less common for Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, wife of Prince Charles, to wear Diana's former jewels. That is until this week, when Camilla stepped out in one of Diana’s diamond brooches for a date at the races.

The piece was first given to Princess Alexandra as a wedding gift when she married the Prince of Wales in 1863. It stayed in the family, and was passed down generation after generation, until the Queen Mother eventually gave it to Diana as a wedding gift.

"The Duchess of Cornwall wore it to Cheltenham as she was presenting the Queen Mother Cup for one of the races. As it once belonged to the Queen Mother, she felt it was appropriate to wear," the palace told TODAY.com.
