TURQUOISE AND VELVET
Camilla helped put the finishing touches to the planning for Prince Charles' 50th birthday celebrations at Highgrove in 1998. And she seemed to put an equal amount of effort into putting together the perfect ensemble for the once-in-a-lifetime evening.

In what many believe marked a defining moment of Camilla's style transformation, a velvet peacock gown by Antony Price was specially designed to complement Camilla's showpiece jewels, which had never before been seen in public.

It was suggested the intricate turquoise and diamond necklace with matching earrings were handed down to her by her great-grandmother Alice Keppel, who was famously the mistress of Charles' ancestor, King Edward VII. However, the theory was later quashed, and it was reported that it was simply a rarely-worn treasure from the family collection.
