The fourth day of Royal Ascot 2016 brings us a Queen Mum brooch, a Jordanian princess, and -- gasp -- Fergie!

The Queen wore the Centenary Rose Brooch, which was her 100th birthday gift to her mother in 2000. The hand-painted brooch is made of rock crystal and set (appropriately) with one hundred diamonds.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were spotted in the parade ring (they had a horse running today), but I haven't seen any decent photos of Camilla's jewels. It looks to me like a pearl necklace was involved -- no surprises there! ETA: Yep -- the usual necklace and earring combo!

There were only three royal ladies in the carriage procession today. Princess Michael of Kent went Full Zsa-Zsa, with a pearl necklace and a pair of glittering pear-shaped stud earrings. (If those are real, they are magnificent.)

Sitting beside Marie-Christine: Princess Sarvath of Jordan, enjoying her second consecutive day of Royal Ascot. She's not in focus in the photo above, but you can see that she wore gold jewelry.



And now, for the grand York surprise -- it's Fergie! Sarah, Duchess of York attended Day 4 with her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, and their daughter, Princess Beatrice.



Sarah went low-key with her jewels, wearing fairly small gem-studded hoop earrings.



As for Princess Beatrice ... well, you know.

And one more! Princess Haya went for Posh Widow today, complete with silvery-gray pearls and back-to-front earrings.
