Following a two-day visit to Northern Ireland this week, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall popped across the border on Wednesday for a day trip to Donegal, where Camilla wore a very appropriately Irish piece of jewelry.

The Claddagh Brooch that Camilla wears was presented to her in 2015 during a visit to the Claddagh National School in Galway. The gold brooch was made by Dillon's, the same jewelry firm that presented Queen Victoria with a Claddagh ring during her 1849 visit to Ireland.

Camilla wore the brooch with diamond and pearl earrings, a multi-stranded pearl necklace, and a gold bracelet with cabochon gemstones.
