When she and Charles, Prince of Wales, were newlyweds, Camilla, now the Duchess of Cornwall, must have thought all her birthdays and Christmases had come at once. Charles loves to shower his second wife with gifts, and has done so both before and after the illicit relationship that rocked the royal family. Since their marriage in April 2005, Camilla has amassed a treasure trove of jewels from both Charles and the Saudis. Camilla dazzled crowds at a London film premiere in 2015 with her magnificent diamond and ruby necklace, which was almost blinding in its sparkle. The rubies are thought to have been a gift from Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah. Thus Camilla has acquired the nickname, Duchess of Dazzle. You don’t have to give a loved one diamonds and rubies to make a hit. You can capture lots of sparkle in a personalized gift.
Perhaps the greatest gift of all to Camilla (the former Camilla Parker Bowles) was the title Duchess of Cornwall. Since her April 2005 marriage to Charles, Prince of Wales. Prior to their marriage, the title was normally used only in Cornwall; customarily the Sovereign’s eldest son and heir is created Prince of Wales and his wife is styled the Princess of Wales, and it is those names that are typically used to refer to them. In Scotland the couple use the title Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. Since the title of Duke of Cornwall can be held only by an heir-apparent who is also the eldest son of the monarch, no woman can be Duchess of Cornwall in her own right. However, this may change now that proposals to change the rules of succession are completed.
