King Charles and Queen Camilla attended a prestigious gala event at which the queen wore one of the most special tiaras in the British Royal Family.
The event took place at the Mansion House and was organized to recognize the work of the City of London’s civic institutions, as well as the city’s ancient and modern livery companies and trade guilds.
During the event, Charles III demonstrated his commitment to the traditions of the British monarchy by following protocols established since 1689 for the first visit of a new monarch to the City of London.
According to People magazine, the King adorned his suit with decorations and medals that highlighted his position as monarch.
Queen Camilla, for her part, dazzled everyone with her elegance, wearing a black dress with striking silver embroidery designed by Bruce Oldfield. But what really caught the eye was the tiara she wore, one of the most special in the British royal family.
What Queen Camilla’s tiara means
The tiara Queen Camilla wore at Mansion House is known as the Queen Mary’s Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
This stunning piece features scalloped and fleur-de-lis patterns and has the distinction of being able to be worn as a necklace.
According to the Royal Collection Trust, the tiara was a wedding gift to the Duchess of York, who later became Queen Mary. Although the tiara was originally set with pearls, Queen Mary had it modified with diamonds, giving it an even more dazzling appearance.
The tiara is closely associated with Queen Elizabeth, who wore it on numerous occasions. You can even find images of her wearing the tiara on British and Commonwealth banknotes and coins.
Queen Elizabeth inherited the tiara from her grandmother; it was a wedding gift to Elizabeth when she married Prince Philip.
In addition to the tiara, Queen Camilla wore other special pieces of jewelry to the event, including a sparkling necklace and bracelet set that belonged to Queen Elizabeth and was given to her as a birthday present when she turned 21.
These pieces of jewelry further highlighted Queen Camilla’s elegance and style at the gala event.
King Charles and Queen Camilla’s attendance at this gala event was not only a moment of glamour and elegance, but also a tribute to the history and traditions of the British Royal Family.
The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara worn by Queen Camilla is a symbol of the Royal Family’s connection to its heritage and its commitment to preserving Britain’s cultural heritage.
