8. On Friday, the Duchess of Cornwall represented the Queen at the annual Sovereign's Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. For the event, she wore her diamond and pearl earrings and two cap badges: on her hat, the cap badge of The Rifles (she's the Royal Colonel of the 4th Battalion), and on her coat, the badge of the 12th Lancers (with whom her father, Major Bruce Shand, served during WWII). You'll note that the buttons on her coat also feature an image of the cap badge of The Rifles.
