The Princess Diana Three
The Prince of Wales’s Feather pendant was a Present to Diana. It bears The Prince of Wales heraldic badge of three ostrich feathers coming out of a coronet.
Originally the pendant was a wedding gift in 1863 from the Ladies of Bristol to Princess Alexandra of Denmark when she married Bertie, the then-Prince of Wales who became Edward VII, it was passed down to her daughter-in-law, Queen Mary, and then to Mary’s daughter-in-law, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, who gave it to the new Princess of Wales in 1981. Diana preferred to suspend the pendant on a short tennis necklace, part of a suite of diamonds she received as a wedding present from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
When Diana died, the piece became part of the Queen’s collection once again, free to be borrowed by other royal ladies with Her Majesty’s permission. Somewhat surprisingly, the first and only wearer of the pendant has been Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
