Dressed in bespoke Dior and £5,00,000 worth of the late Queen Elizabeth II's diamond and sapphire jewels as part of the precious King George VI Victoria Suite, Camilla's regal presence was declared one of her "personal best" style moments by royal fans.
Her Majesty is no stranger to wearing dazzling accessories, nor is she unfamiliar with a glamorous dress code. A look back to 2001, before King Charles and his wife (then Camilla Parker-Bowles) had married, shows one of the most daring looks in the Queen's style file.
The royal couple were invited to attend the "It's Fashion" party hosted by VOGUE and Jaguar in aid of cancer relief at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.
Dressed to the nines for the illustrious event, both Charles and Camilla looked dapper and delightful in immaculate outfits.
Camilla, then 53, wore a figure-hugging satin dress complete with a low-cut, sweetheart neckline, capped sleeves, and a scooped back design. Crafted from metallic, iridescent fabric, the royal's head-turning dress was a seriously statement ensemble.
Most striking, however, was the addition of a glittering serpent necklace coiled around the royal's neck and placed elegantly on her decolletage.
The statement piece, understood to have been a gift from King Charles to his wife-to-be back in 2001, resembled the shape of a snake crafted from round and square-cut diamonds.The reptilian piece was elevated with two delicate rubies in place of the serpent's eyes.
GLITTERING ROYAL JEWELS
Queen Camilla's serpent necklace was worn by the royal several times during the noughties, but she has rarely worn it public since adopting a more senior royal status.
The last time the mother-of-two was seen rocking the glittering reptile necklace was at a banquet in Buckingham Palace on 25 October, 2005, and a trip to the White House the same year.
