  1. The Duchess of Cornwall was looking very excellent that evening! Even if I’m not a fan of her chokers, nobody can manage that huge Greville tiara like her. It almost looks like part of her hairdo! Her beautiful beaded black and white gown is very becoming as well. The Duchess of Cambridge was not to be undone, wearing one of the Queen’s diamond collet necklaces for the first time. I love it when she busts out some new jewel loan! I would have liked for her to wear the Lotus Flower tiara, but I guess given the formality of the occasion the Lover’s Knot is more substantial and perhaps considered more appropriate. In any case, she looked stunning!
