    I think she should have opted for something that covered her upper shoulders and throat area, but otherwise I think she looks very nice here. I'm not a huge fan of that color, but she looks good in it. Rockin' that giant-ass tiara, too.

    That is quite the crown! I don't think I have ever seen the queen where something that big.

    It's gorgeous. I believe that one belonged to the Queen Mother.

    The article at the link tells all about the tiara and its history.

    It's a hell of a piece.

    hate the color of the dress - it's very '70s mother of the bride. as for the crown, looks like she's practicing to be 'queen camilla'.

    My god, to avoid political conflict they send Charles and Madam thinks she is the queen and wears the biggest crown possible. Way to go for in a poor country that spend over their heads for the CHOGM.

    She looks like a lumpy old hag. Surprising that.

    Ah CHOGM, where old fat sweaty blokes trek to a tropical climate for photo ops in some bastardized version of the local national costume. She should be wearing a sari.
    Be excellent to each other.

    She's looking much fresher and younger these days. Skilful PS no doubt and maybe she finally quit smoking (take note Middleton sisters).

    I think she's lost weight too. Not so thick around the middle and her face is slimmer.

    PLUS I love that colour on her. I don't know who her stylist is these days but they're doing a great job.

    Its a tiara, not a crown. Made by Boucheron in Art Deco style for super wealthy heiress Mrs Greville who bequeathed it to her friend the Queen Mother. It was one of the QMs favourites and on her death it passed to her daughter QE2 who has hardly if ever worn it but Camilla often does presumably because she likes it and it suits her. She borrows a lot of her MILs bling and why not. It will all be hers one day anyway.

    Not thick around the middle! She looks like she's wearing a maternity dress.

    She looks very good here. She is currently the only member of the "Firm" who has the hair to pull off this tiara, that is why she wears it. I'm pretty sure she would prefer a riding cap.
