Queen Elizabeth II wore her sapphires; Camilla wore the Greville Tiara with diamond earrings and a pearl necklace; the Duchess of Gloucester wore the Iveagh Tiara with pearls (and the honeysuckle tiara at the next evening's Guildhall banquet); and Princess Alexandra wore a tiara, likely the Ogilvy.
