I liked the scarf and grey colour of the suit. The suit is poorly tailored.

I like the scarf and I like the female suit, but I think it doesn't fit for July even on a rainy day (which it was) - the look is too wintry.

If her top had been a color - any color - or white, I think it would have negated that "wintry" look.

I like the color combination that Camila chose, even if it was a bit dreary and wintery. The scarf was a nice touch.

It was indeed, and Camilla has worn this hat with a variety of outfits for he last 5-6 years.

To be honest, although it's summer we've had no summery weather in the UK. It's been the wettest June ever and July has started in the same vein. Camilla's suit is pretty appropriate.

For me, what sticks out like a sore thumb are her brown shoes with the gray and black. That's just a bad combination. If it's that cold in the UK, I don't blame her for wearing a winter-like suit; it's just too bad that the jacket seems a bit snug.

Perhaps she just read the comments on TRF and the calls for her to not wear loose clothes, and instead wear fitted suits!

Poor lady, if that's true, she just can't win! But she does look better in more form-fitting clothes, but not too snug.

She should wear fitted suits,and fitted dresses, she looks amazing when she does. I'll repeat she has a nice figure, why not show it off.

Wearing clothes that fit well, make you look better. The earlier picture with the ill fitting jacket and the shoes that didn't go at all, makes her look frumpy. The light blue suit, is still uninteresting, but fits better.

Those brown shoes must be very comfortable for Camila, because she's wearing them again with the blue suit. I love the shade of blue on the Duchess, and when she has her coat on, the shoes compliment it quite well.

I like the fit of the blue suit and color, but love the expression on her face with the dog on the couch. It looks like she thinks it poached her spot!

I just got a picture in my head of Camila telling the dog to scoot over .

Really like the outfit.
The combination of beige and white works well for Camilla. AND she's wearing a brooch, so all boxes checked in my "perfect royal" guidebook.

She looks frumpy though. I don't think the style of the top suits her.

I agree, the ensemble really works for her. She has had this outfit for 5-6 years, and uses it extensively.

Women in their mid/late 60s tend to!

The queen doesn't ever look frumpy and she's well over 60!

Camilla needs some color too, the beige does nothing for her.

I have a friend in her mid-60s who definitely doesn't look frumpy at all in her style and clothing; I can only hope to look like her reaching that age. This is an OK look for Camilla.
