In accordance with royal protocol, all Windsors are required to wear black upon the death of one of their family members. In the case of a sovereign, moreover, the days of national mourning are 10 and only after that can the state funeral be held. Carlo and Camilla respected tradition by appearing in all-black a few hours after Elizabeth II’s death, even if the new queen consort managed to attract media attention anyway. She wore a strict, elegant black coat, complete with opaque tights and matching shoes. She also added a necklace with three pearl necklaces around her neck, a jewel often worn by the late sovereign.

The symbolic meaning of Camilla’s brooch

The tributes to the late queen don’t seem to have ended here: whether it was a case or a desired detail, it doesn’t matter, what is certain is that to protect herself from the rain Camila used a transparent plastic umbrella, a model that was often displayed until by Elizabeth II during rainy days. A diamond-studded brooch in the shape of a love knot also stood out on the coat dress. According to tradition, it would be the symbol of a strong, invincible, authentic love, capable of lasting beyond time. Did the new queen consort mean to indirectly refer to her troubled history with Charles? What is certain is that the two not only managed to stay together after their respective failed marriages, but today they have also fulfilled their dream of ascending the English throne side by side.
