The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall continued their Canadian tour in Ontario on Friday, and the jewelry worn had a distinctive military flair.

Among their stops for the day: Canadian Forces Base Trenton, where Charles and Camilla visited the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada.

Appropriately, Camilla wore a bejeweled military badge on her coat. This is a gem-studded version of the cap badge of the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada. She has been the regiment's Colonel-in-Chief since 2010.

Along with his small maple leaf pin, Charles also wore a military pin. I believe this is the heraldic badge of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Charles is the RCMP's Honorary Commissioner.
