I thought the outfit was a nice balance of winter elegance and English eccentricity. I do thinks she looks great in fitted suits, like that purple one worn during the state visit, but I'm fond of the fun and different as well.

Day four outfit was absolutley Horrible, IMO! The DoC looks fat and frumpy, any fashion that renders a person looking older with more weight, is not a good choice!

I agree. The coat especially is quite ugly & unflattering for the Duchess of Cornwall, just the wrong choice IMO. Beside from that I like her boots and gloves. I wonder how that dress looks like that she's obviously wearing.

OMG, she's taking fashion advice from Jo Frost! The cape is not a good look for her... and I had thought she was looking very nice. What a puzzle.

haha, i guess im in the big minority who likes the outfit. The duchess wore an interesting evening outfit on the third night but im having a hard time find a proper pic. Ive only seen the upper portion and it looks like a blue silk blazer and blue knit dress? The top bit didnt look to good, tbh, but Id like to see the whole outfit.

All wrong

The first thing I thought of was an Edgar Wallace movie - The strangler from Blackmoor castle.

Sad, Camilla could do so much better.

Perhaps she wore it because it was cold and she didn´t want to appear shivering. Canadians on the forum can tell me what the temperature was at the time....
It is a bit eccentric, but it was amusing and she certainly looked warm.
As to the rabbit fur, if it is recycled I am all for it, I believe in recycling and throwing a garment out because it has old fur sounds very wasteful.

Well vintage for sure. Reminds me of a well known "Fashion icon" back in the glorious 80's...

Really unflattering. Too bad, I like the color of the coat so much.

I like the colour and the pattern - but the shape of the cape is all wrong - it just bloats her.

Does anyone know the maunufacturer(designer) of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall's brown suede knee high boots and/or a similar style of boots?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,
EaO.

I've been a bit disappointed by Camilla's wardrobe for the Canadian trip - the cape aside, they were all fine, but nothing outstanding - she relies too much on dark browns and navys, when reds and purples work for her in winter - help her stand out a bit more. It's just all been a bit, well... dull.

Generally she wears L K Bennet shoes and boots so that would be my guess

I agree with James in London, very disappointing fashion on Camilla DoC on the trip to Canada. Nothing really stands out as regal, royal or elegant to me, which is unfortunate!

I really wish she would have worn at least one suit cut along those lines, nicely tailored and in a strong color, during the visit to Canada.
Her whole Canada wardrobe was dowdy, drab, shapeless und unflattering. Her own mother-in-law wears more appealing clothes, especially when it comes to daywear.

Although the purple suit doesn't seem well-tailored, it's nice and decent. Much better than that cape.

A well tailored two-piece suit. Its black, but it fits right.
