Queen Camilla dons red velvet gown with late Queen’s £5m wedding gift

Queen Camilla stunned in red as she attends the white tie and tiara event alongside her husband and other senior royals as part of the president of South Korea’s official visit to the UK.

The 76-year-old royal stunned fans in a gorgeous red Fiona Clare Aldridge gown and also sported the late Queen’s Ruby and Diamond Burmese Tiara to mark the occasion.

The tiara, which is estimated to cost around £5million, is complete with rubies that the late Queen was gifted upon her wedding day in 1947.

The King and Queen are currently hosting President Yoon Suk Yeol and his wife Kim Keon Hee as part of their three-day visit to the UK.

The royal couple treated the President and First Lady to a private lunch at Buckingham Palace earlier today, with the pair having arrived at Stansted Airport yesterday afternoon.

Tonight 170 guests will gather for the banquet in the opulent Palace ballroom, where both the King and Mr Yoon will make speeches.
