Earlier this month, Queen Camilla wore the stunning State Diadem for the first time, and now, she’s turning to another first, choosing a show-stopping piece of royal headwear from the collection of Queen Elizabeth for.

At tonight’s state banquet hosted at Buckingham Palace to celebrate a visit from South Korea’s president, Yoon Suk Yeol, and his wife, Kim Keon-hee, Queen Camilla wore a red velvet dress by Fiona Clare and the late Queen’s ruby and diamond Burmese tiara (also called the Burmese Ruby tiara).

It is Camilla’s first time wearing this tiara, which was created by the House of Garrard and commissioned by Queen Elizabeth 1973.

The tiara includes rubies that were gifted from Burma to then-Princess Elizabeth upon her marriage to Prince Philip in 1947. Per the jeweler, “The 96 rubies are a symbolic gesture, as rubies in Burmese culture protect from illness and evil, in this case to protect the wearer from the 96 diseases that can afflict humans. The rubies and diamonds are set in a series of rose motifs inspired by the Tudor Rose, the heraldic symbol of Britain.” Queen Elizabeth wore the tiara to numerous State Banquets, including when U.S. President Donald Trump visited in June 2019 and when President Roh Moo-Hyun of South Korea visited back in 2004.

Since becoming queen, Camilla has had numerous tiara moments, as she now has full access to the royal vaults. She’s worn her go-to Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara (also called the Greville Tiara), but she’s also switched it up. For her first state banquet as queen last November, Camilla wore a diamond and sapphire tiara that belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth, and just last month, she wore Queen Elizabeth’s favorite tiara, the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland.
