The Duchess of Cornwall was the second-highest-ranking royal lady at the banquet. She wore her standard gala jewels: the Greville Tiara and a multi-stranded pearl necklace with a diamond clasp. For a twist, she added the elaborate earrings from her suite of pear-shaped diamond jewels. A diamond bracelet glittered on her left wrist. Because Camilla doesn't have a Colombian order, she wore the sash and star her highest British order: the Royal Victorian Order. Queen Elizabeth II's family order was also pinned to her gown.
The order of procession for tonight's banquet also included the Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra, but alas, no good photos of them available for me to use at the moment. I'll update that if things change! For now: you can see Alexandra wearing a tiara and her Garter sash in the background of the procession photo above.
