On Thursday evening, a special concert was held in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace to mark the upcoming 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales, and his wife brought out a major heirloom necklace for the occasion.

The images of Camilla from this event were all at least partially obstructed, sadly, so here's a look at the Duchess from a previous event wearing the necklace and earrings with the Greville Tiara. (You can see more images of the necklace and learn about its history in our previous post here!)

Charles and Camilla weren't the only Windsors present for the concert. His cousins, the Earl and Countess of Snowdon and Lady Sarah and Daniel Chatto, were also in attendance.
