Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duchess of Cornwall wears a tiara loaned to her by the Queen as she attends her inaugural royal banquet at Buckingham Palace. She accompanied the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen and Norway's Crown Prince Haakon, (back right partly obscured) at the banquet in honour of the King and Queen of Norway. Camilla's glittering diamond head piece was the Durbar Tiara previously worn by Queen Mary for the Delhi Durbar to celebrate the coronation of King George V. Queen Mary wore it in Delhi to mark the start of King George V's reign as King and as Emperor of India. The circle of diamonds mounted in gold and set in platinum, arranged as forget-me-nots and lyres, was made by Garrads in 1911
