Royal Style: Elizabeth may be gone, but her diamonds are forever

Maireas · 20/09/2022 21:36

Evening Royal style and beauty fans.
Into the Carolean era, with more bling we hope! Also more state banquets?

Elizabeth, too, in her own way, is forever! What a legacy.

So true. An amazing lady.

To pp who mentioned the Boucheron Loop Tiara, sadly it no longer exists, IIRC...

I think it was dismantled at some point. But you’re right, it would have looked great on Camilla. She really suits the huge, imposing ones!

Who is foolish enough to dismantle a tiara?? Honestly...!

Queen Mary did it a lot, apparently. Reworking pieces or taking them apart to create others. She certainly loved her jewellery.

I'll have her chips if there's no tiaras left!

If you haven’t seen it (and I’m probably preaching to the converted here!) but highly recommend watching the BBC documentary on the Crown Jewels that was made earlier this year - it’s back on iPlayer as part of the commemorations for HM.

Very interesting to hear them talk about the Koh-I-Noor diamond and how only women handle it, even in the cleaning!

Speaking of headgear, I have read in several places that one of HMQ's head scarves was attached to the saddle on Emma the pony yesterday. I have tried to find a photo of that without success. If it's true it's another sweet and charming gesture.

Yes that’s correct. It’s hard to see, though. It’s draped over the saddle.

It was me, the article I read implied it wasn't known whether it was still in one piece and might just be tucked away. It said if they had been sold, gifted or broken up. There was another rather fab one that was broken up and used in part to make the girls of great Britain tiara so I was hopeful! Such a shame if it is no more.

I'm still a bit sad the politmore isn't around to be worn, another that Camilla would rock!

Thank you, @Maireas.
Fresh start all round! I feel a bit out of sorts today 🙁, unexpectedly. So a few sparkles will be in order 👑👑

I know what you mean. Yesterday was extraordinary in so many ways, not least because it's a turning point.
