What makes you think that the hat wouldn't have tried to fly away? How many pins would she have needed to keep it securely in place?

I remember an interview of the Queen's hairdresser some years ago. To the question "what's the secret oh HM's indestructible do", his answer was "the secret? Hairspray, hairspray and more hairspray"...

As many as it took and, with a little help from that marvellous invention . . . . . "Hairspray" any hat would have stayed the course!

I remember Princess Mary loosing her hat at an engagement before her marriage. I don't think that has ever happened again. There are itsy bitsy royal secrets passed down generation to generation that impart the secrets of retaining hats and not having Marilyn Munro dress moments.

PS: Wish someone had imparted the second bit to Catherine in Canada!

The 2nd green floral dress really makes her blend in with the garden.

I like the black/white polka dot dress. I think it's cute.

Indeed you can tell she uses a lot of hairspray as her hair never moves even when it's windy.

Great summer style for the Duchess. Very similar to a dress worn recently by Princess Mabel. Perhaps fashion is taking a turn for the better.

There is something I don't like about the dress in this pic. I think it is the neckline. Yet in the other pic, the neckline, and indeed the whole outfit looks wonderful. Werid.

Might that be because a stole is obscuring the neck in thepicture above?

Even with the best will in the world - sometimes you can't get it right, even when you try !

Not sure whether there is a thread here showing unfavourable juxtapositions of images ?

I think the outfit would have looked better without the wrap around her shoulders. Other than that, Camilla looks fine.

Yes I think in the first photo she's wearing a wrap or scarf and in the the other photo she's not wearing it.

It was quite nippy in London for most of last week, so I guess the wrap was required.

I like how the sleeves were done. It adds some style to an otherwise simple dress.
