I don't like that dress still. I really do wish someone would 'accidentally' burn it or donate it to a UK equivalent of Good Will.

Their Majesties King Carl Gustav and Queen Silvia welcomed Prince Charles and Camilla to Drottningholm Palace Theatre for a short performance.

Hopefully, there'll be better pictures soon.

I love that hot pink lining to her wrap, but that's all I can say (or see) about her outfit for now.

Oh, I thought it was one of my favorites, but it isn't!
Love the hot pink wrap!

Perhaps you meant the burgundy dress that Camilla has worn on several occasions.
Because of the wrap, I initially thought she was wearing that gown as well.

I wish since that's a gorgeous color. It looks like she's wearing a simple black gown, maybe in chiffon, with a ruffled white collar.

The wrap adds good contrast to the dark color of the gown. I'd love to see better pictures. The gown looks velvet to me.

A black two-piece I'd say, with a velvet top featuring white ruffles and a very unflattering cut... along with the un-matching cape, there are just too many muddled layers of velvet here, a fabric she should avoid anyway:

Yes, that is what I thought it was at first, that was the gown I was reffering to, one of my favorites of hers, (though nothing can beat the purple Norway dress.)
But alas, I was wrong!

From what I can see from Boris's link, it looks disastrous. Too bad as she was doing well for a bit... I will reserve my final decision when I am able to see more definitive pics.

Lol, in a weird way my first thought was that Camilla's gown looked like the simplified version of the Elizabethan style of dress. Her velvet top almost looks like a bodice/corset that was detachable from the overskirt. Added to it is the blouse beneath as a version of a smock/shift. Of course, it doesn't have all the fancy bells and whistles of a kirtle, petticoat or stomacher like in the olden days, but it certainly has an antique look to me and just reminded me of a dress from a bygone era.

Thank you; you're very descriptive yourself.

Unfortunately, we never got to see better pictures. Then again, it was a private event.

Today, Prince Charles and Camilla, accompanied by Their Majesties, visited the Vasa Museum in Stockholm.
Camilla wore a lovely grey coat with blue detailing and matching bag and a blue dress under the coat.
The coat is nice looking and she finally got a different bag. Wish she wore a vibrant colour though.
No clear picture of the jewellery, but she appears to be wearing the pearl choker from Norway.

Nice coat indeed but grey again !
I've the feeling that Camilla didn't expect the coming of spring so fast. Her wardrobe is still a little bit too winterish.

I'm with the "burn baby burn" on the navy white collared dress posters! Put the beast to bed, then buy a miracle bra!

I like Camilla's gray coat; it's nicely tailored with the blue trim. The matching blue dress is certainly an improvement over the grim navy dress, she's wearing soft black hose and it looks like she's wearing her new pearl choker.

Maybe an accident should be arranged with the navy and white dress.

I'm in complete agreement regarding the grey and blue coat. It fits her very nicely. The 'arranged accident' is a great idea. Perhaps some of the staff can be creative in this department and get rid of the dress, but keep everything else in tact . And I too love your way with words. You paint pictures with them, and that's very helpful to someone like me who can't always see the details.
