Camilla Parker Bowles was dripping in diamonds for her first overseas trip as Queen Consort.
The 75-year-old royal attended a state banquet in Germany on Wednesday night wearing the Greville Tiara and an elaborate diamond necklace that previously belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
She paired the special pieces with equally extravagant diamond earrings and a matching bracelet.
Queen Consort Camilla — clad in a long-sleeved black gown with silver embroidery — and King Charles III, 74, were celebrated as the guests of honor, and certainly looked the part.
The King opted for a tailcoat tuxedo and white bow tie for the diplomatic dinner in Berlin.
The royal couple posed for pictures alongside President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his wife, Frau Elke Budenbender, before heading inside the palace to meet with former German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The trip officially marks the pair’s new reign as Britain’s monarchs following Queen Elizabeth’s death on Sept. 8 at age 96.

Since then, the Queen Consort has found ways to honor her late mother-in-law with her fashion choices.
Camilla went for a bold blue look this month for the annual Commonwealth Day celebration at Westminster Abbey, selecting a meaningful brooch for the annual church service.
She adorned her monochromatic look with an enormous sapphire-and-diamond pin, known as the Russian Sapphire Cluster Brooch, that also belonged to Queen Elizabeth II.
The striking piece was frequently worn by the Queen Mother and dates all the way back to Empress Marie Feodorovna of Russia in the late 1800s, according to Maxwell Stone of UK jeweler Steven Stone.
Stone estimated the brooch is “worth $680,000” and “features 18 large diamonds around a smaller, detailed gold setting, with a large eight to 10 sapphire stones in the center.”
The jeweler said the selection of the piece was “a poignant choice from Camilla as it’s the first time that the event has taken place since the Queen’s death in September.”
