A wonderful butterfly outfit for the Duchess of Cornwall today, November 3rd in Johannesburg,
South Africa. It's elegant and fresh, I like it a lot!

Note that the hat is not part of the original outfit, she only tried it on

Prince Charles Prince Of Wales And Camilla Duchess Of Cornwall Pose

The White Indian style suit that Camilla wore at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in India last year made a reappearance in SA last night.

More from the visit to the Zulu King at the Uludi Palace.

Camilla the African queen: Duchess goes bush with a dainty parasol while Charles goes for blazer and tie in 36 degree heat | Mail Online

I love Camilla's style! She looks cool and comfortable and really knows how to wield that a parasol to good effect. She looks far cooler than Charles. I also love that she has restricted her jewellery to her trade mark pearl earrings and the large stylised Remembrance Poppy. (Is that a sprig of myrtle attached?)

Yes, I agree about Camilla's look; that's a beautiful ice-blue coat in a nice lightweight material and I like the white slacks as well. Those are also huge pearl earrings! That parasol looks like something out of a Merchant-Ivory movie and she wields it with style. I can't identify the leaf on the poppy, but it certainly adds a nice touch.

Good summary. Camila looks great and comfortable. I can't imagine being in that kind of heat in a stuffy and heavy outfit. The parasol was probably a godsend too in helping minimize the heat just a little.

The Duchess of Cornwall in Tanzania on November 7: I mostly like what she chooses, but this
time I'm undecided: the cut is great again, but the graphic print is too much in my eyes:

I love the cut and colour. It looks crisp, fresh and cool. As to the design, well now my eyes have adjusted I think I like it. Close up it's a little overpowering, but at a distance it looks great.

This is a lovely ensemble. This is aprt of a collection of Asian inspired clothes that Camilla has, designed largely for their trips to the ME, South Asia and Islamic states. Camilla has gradually been adding to this range over the years, and will often wear some of these clothes in Europe as well. Some of these, including the ice-blue coat worn in SA, date back to 2006.

I like the way Camilla dresses. However, she does need a pair of grey shoes to go with the butterfly and swirly ensembles.

It looks as though the poppy is crocheted and that the leaf is felt.

I like the style of the outfit, but the print is a little strong. Perhaps if either top or bottom were in a solid color, it won't be as overwhelming.

Looks like Camilla finally decided to updated her sunglasses. Her previous pair always looked like, and probably was, a relic from the late 1980s

The pattern looks like an optical illusion. Gives me a bit of a headache to look at, but I love that pearl necklace.

I really like the dress she wore on her arrival in Tanzania at Dar Es Salaam Airport. The colour really suits her and I love that particular pearl necklace.

And I loved the cut and colour of her evening gown for the State Dinner, and I think she is wearing her snake necklace, but I can't see her earrings.

I agree, the white dress looks lovely. I suspect it is new as I do not think I have seen it previously.

Indeed. I think the blue evening gown is the same one Camilla first wore in Portugal in spring this year, and again at the evening reception at BP following the wedding of William and Catherine.

Yes, that blue evening gown is the same Camilla wore to Will and Kate's wedding reception, but she's wearing her snake necklace in this recent event:

And I think that's the beautiful pearl choker with the pink center stone Camilla is wearing with the white dress.

Actually it was not the choker with the pink stone but the choker with the diamonds in the oxidised setting that Camilla was wearing. I think she has had this choker for the last 2-3 years.

Agreed, very suitable for the climate.
