Camilla steps out in Princess Diana’s jewellery

They were bitter love rivals for two decades so it’s not hard to imagine how Princess Diana would feel about Camilla wearing her favourite jewels.

The Duchess of Cornwall wore Diana’s beloved diamond and emerald brooch to the races in Cheltenham yesterday.

The Queen Mother gave Diana the brooch when she married Prince Charles in 1981 and it was returned to the royal family after her death in 1997. Charles then gave it to his new wife Camilla.

Diana would no doubt be more pleased to see Kate Middleton wearing her treasures.

Kate has modified Diana’s earrings and wears them frequently.

Prince William gave Kate his mother’s engagement ring in November 2010.

Kate borrowed this diamond brooch from Queen Elizabeth for her trip to Canada.

The tiara Kate wore to her wedding has been worn by the Queen Mother and Princess Anne.
