King Charles III and his wife Camilla, The Queen Consort, were seen on a visit to Cardiff, Wales, on 16 September.

As part of their visit to Cardiff, the couple were attending a Service of Prayer and Reflection for the Life of The Queen at Llandaff Cathedral. Here, they were seen attending the service but also talking to the public, with a touching moment occurring when Camilla received flowers from a little girl, who then sweetly took hold of her hand.

For the service, Camilla was seen paying a subtle tribute to her late mother-in-law, the Queen, through her jewellery choice. Wearing all black, the Queen Consort added the Welsh Guards Leek Brooch to her coat.

The Queen was regularly seen in the Welsh Guards Leek Brooch throughout her reign. In a photograph from 1965, she can be seen wearing the brooch during a presentation of the colours to the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

This isn't the first jewellery tribute The Queen Consort has been seen in since the passing of Her Majesty. On 12 September, for a Service of Thanksgiving in St Giles. Cathedral, Edinburgh, Camilla wore a diamond thistle brooch, Scotland's national flower, to honour her mother-in-law and the country that the Queen is said to have felt most at home in.
