Both QE and Camilla would benefit from better underpinnings, IMO. Also think with the silver hair, jewel tones are a better choice.

I think this particular look is very lovely for Camila. The jacket and the shoes provide a good contrast to the light beige.

I think with Camilla, it is very apparent when she has made an effort with her appearance and when she has not. She clearly looks much better when she has had her hair and makeup done. also, I think she has put on weight in the last 2-3 years, which clearly impacts the overall look.

For sure. Also the hysterectomy a few years ago plays havoc on your metabolism. And she spends way less time riding now.

One of Camilla's "summer staples", the navy blue spotted dress and blue jacket, were out in use in Wales today. She probably has got her money's worth out of this outfit, it has probbaly been used >20 times over the last 4-5 years, and it still looks very smart.

It's a nice look, and I love her handbag. That's a sweet photo of the couple as well.

Camilla looks lovely, and I like the dress and the jacket.
However, don't mean to be rude, but I wish she wore more supportive undergarments.

A wonderful picture of the couple indeed.

That's true, Artemisia, the jacket doesn't fit well across the top. Ah, but Charles so likes what he sees!

I am happy that Charles likes what he sees... He is Always in well-tailored and dapper looking apparel that fits him to perfection! I just wish some of that would rub off on Camilla and her ill-fitting outfits. Perhaps his tailor could show her. Hmm? :)

Their Highnesses look very lovely in that photo, and Camila's outfit is very flattering as well. The way Charles looks at his wife is very sweet. I think he more than likes what he sees, which is delightful to notice.

I did not mean to sound snarky. It is lovely to see that Charles is happy and it shows just how much in this photo.

Well, it is true that Camilla could benefit from the expertise of a good seamstress and supportive undergarments.

The duchess of Cornwall looks nice in this outfit with the spotted dress and blue jacket plus pearls add a touch of elegance.

Very true, indeed, Baroness. But you say things in a much better way than I do! I so wish I had your talent.

Women in their mid/late 60s tend to!
Age doesn't make women look frumpy, lack of style and good undergarments do. Lots of older women look terrific. They know how to dress.

I really love this blue suit; it suits her.
Plus, Camilla is wearing my favourite brooches.

Absolutely delightful, and I do love those brooches. I'm so glad that some members of the British Royal Family wear blue relatively often. It's one of my favorite colors, and it doesn't hurt that they all look great in it.

Great balance between white and beige. I love the brooch too. I think overall, the Duchess looks very nice.
