Boffer - we know you mean Cornwall not Cambridge.
The confusion is very easy to make unfortunately.
: It is clear from the phrasing in The Queen's
: Diamonds that within the royal family,
: historic jewels are no longer
: "gifted" they are simply
: The main case being 'The Greville Tiara'
: which has been worn solely by The Duchess of
: Cornwall since 2005, which in the past we
: would have assumed meant it had been gifted
: to her.
: Now however, perhaps due to the lessons
: learnt from the numerous divorces of the
: 1990s, family heirlooms are simply loaned.
: Thus it could be the case that 'The Duchess
: of Teck's Tiara' has never actually been
: worn by The Duchess of Cambridge. It is
: simply in her possession, in a safe at
: Clarence House; and maybe one day she will
: wear it.
: It is a shame that the Official Visits that
: TRHs The Prince of Wales and Duchess of
: Cornwall undertake, no longer include any
: tiara banquets or official dinners, as these
: would be the perfect occasions to wear this
: tiara; which is less imposing that 'The
: Greville Tiara' that HRH seems to favour for
: the grand state events.
