Earlier in the trip, Camilla Parker Bowles wore a mask with a special motif on it.
It featured the Prince of Wales feathers, a nod – of course – to her husband.
The symbol is the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales. While Charles is the Prince of Wales now, the Prince of Wales is the position always held by the son of the Monarch.
When Charles becomes king, Prince William will then be the Prince of Wales.

Due to the translucent properties of the rock crystal, the brooch takes on the hue of the garment it is worn on, making it very versatile.
