While Prince Charles visited one of the locations devastated by last year's earthquake, Camilla stayed on in Florence. For the day's engagements, she wore diamond and pearl earrings with a single-stranded pearl necklace. The necklace also includes a pave-set diamond bead. She also wore her engagement and wedding rings, her gold and gemstone bracelet, and her watch.

Camilla's day in Florence included a trip to the Uffizi Gallery, where she viewed famous paintings like Botticelli's Primavera. She was given a tour of the gallery by its director, Dr. Eike Schmidt.

Camilla also stopped at St. Mark's Anglican Church, where she viewed a memorial plaque to her great-grandmother, Alice Keppel. Alice, who was the last mistress of King Edward VII, died at her Italian villa in 1947, and she is buried in Florence.
