I shriek EEEEK!! everytime I see the ditty dotty polka dot dress ever since she first wore it in Canada. I'm really beginning to think the DOC is reading the TRF's and having a jolly good laugh on me.

I don't remember this polka dot dress. Is it really that bad?!

It depends on your taste. No, I don't find it that bad. By the way, mixing polka dotted and checked scarfs is a no-no, IMO.

Duchess of Cornwall's outfit reminds me of outfits worn by wives of First Secretaries of the Communist Party to demonstrate their husbands' exclusive position and all the material perquisites it had. As far as the polka-dot dress is concerned, I remember her wearing it with an English cape coat. Anyway, I do not expect much in terms of fashion choices from her.

That's exactly what I mean. The two look nice but on condition that they're worn separately.

IMHO, Al Bina is absolutely on the mark here - the polka dotty dress in several of its appearances, including the particularly awful last one, has all the chic appeal of the awkward dress sense shown by Communist First Ladies, vintage ca. 1973.
It's rather mind-boggling that it appears to be one of the DOC's favorite outfits.

I think its charming that Camilla manages to geet good wear out of most of her clothes. I am not a big fan of the polka dotted dress, but I think its fine, especially when worn with a plain coat that covers most of it. I do not think I have ever seen the dress without a coat on it.

As regards the scarf and dress combination, the scarf is a very expensive check Kashmiri shahtoosh from India, with some embroidery on it. The check and embroideery are quite subtle, and I think the plain coat sets off the scarf and the dress well.

I don't like the oufit combinations or the colours. Her hat is too big!

The hat is big however the Duchess wears large hats pretty well.
She always manages to pull it off.

She wears big hats well if they are the right color and structure. This one lost on both counts.

Am not a fan of the dress that Camilla worn, but I think it was probably just fine for the event.

The dress is hideous!
It looks like my grandmothers curtains! That sort of dress should be in a horror movie...not on the duchess.

CrownPrincess, yes, I agree. It's ugly and old-fashioned. Thumbs down indeed.

Oh no, that doesn't look good. I wonder what she was thinking... I believe Camilla should give up crazy prints in general (well, prints in general). JMO
