The Queen Consort and the Princess of Wales were both out and about in England on Wednesday, wearing subtle daytime jewelry and remembrance poppies.
King Charles III and Queen Camilla headed to Yorkshire on Wednesday, making stops in both York and Doncaster.
At York Minster, Charles and Camilla unveiled a new statue of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Originally designed to celebrate the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the statue now commemorates the legacy of her reign.
Here’s a look at the statue, which stands on the outside of the church building. The late Queen is depicted wearing Garter robes and the George IV Diamond Diadem.
Charles and Camilla also viewed an exhibition inside the sanctuary that shows the process of creating the sculpture, as well as a scaled replica of the final version.
The day’s events also included a stop at Mansion House in Doncaster, where Charles and Camilla posed beneath a portrait of the late Queen wearing the Lover’s Knot Tiara. King Charles officially granted city status to Doncaster during the visit, an upgrade that was previously announced as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Queen Camilla wore green for the day’s engagements, paired with diamonds and pearls. She wore her favorite diamond floral and pearl drop earrings, plus a single strand of pearls with a pavé-set bead clasp. She also pinned a crystal poppy brooch to her jacket.
We also caught a glimpse of her engagement and wedding rings as she signed the visitor book at Mansion House.
Meanwhile, the Princess of Wales also made an appearance on Wednesday, visiting Colham Manor Children’s Centre in Hillingdon.
The visit was made on behalf of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance, a charity for which Kate serves as patron.
Like Camilla, Kate also wore green on Wednesday, choosing an ensemble in shades of deep olive.
The princess accessorized with a pair of earrings that she’s been wearing for more than a decade: the Classic Citrine Pear Drop Earrings from Kiki McDonough.
Here’s another look at the earrings from today’s outing. Kate also wore her usual rings, plus a paper poppy.
You’ll note, though, that the poppy is missing from her coat in some of the photographs taken as she left the children’s center.
That’s because she gave it to an inquisitive and interested young man, three-year-old Akeem, as she departed, explaining to him that it was a symbol of remembrance for soldiers. You can view video of the lovely exchange here.
