I think Camilla has a tendency to look better when she is out of the country. Her clothes are more colorful and more tailored. This look is too much like what she wore for William's wedding ....always cream (not flattering) coat dress or some variation thereon. Same old hair, same old big hat, same old Camilla. I have seen her look much better in other colors....blue, periwinkle, purple, etc

I think Camilla looks absolutely wonderful. The straw gold is really a good colour for her. It gives her face warmth and flatters her overall complexion. The sort of woven effect on the arms and inside her coat collar is really chic and the addition of darts give is a fitted elegance that has been, perhaps, a little lacking in some of her more recent ensembles.

I really love the style of the coat and dress ensemble with it's fitted top and flare and movement in the skirt. It is very feminine and flatters her legs which, incidentally, are very trim. Her marvellous new confection (aka "hat") is just that, marvellous. She really has got the "off the face" look sorted in her own unique style.

When she first arrived I notice she was also wearing gloves which is something she doesn't do as a rule . . . did she get a sneak weather forecast preview I wonder?

To be honest, I like this ensemble better than William 's wedding ensemble. It seems more elegant in some way.

Like Camilla's ensemble at the jubilee concert much better. She looks great with some color, even if it isn't a vibrant color.

I loved the blue-grayish tint of the dress. She looked so lovely.

Camilla looks great as always , but i think her choose of Philip Treacy's creation don't give as any addition on her style , both hats of the river pageant t and of the service looks similar for me !!!

I love the coat, the shoes and the clutch.
The over-sized hat, however, is somewhat distracting.

I think Camilla suits a hat with a brim that sweeps up like that. It's a technique that the Queen uses too so people can always see her face.

Both the hats Camilla's worn this weekend are simple enough to be used worn in future with a whole range of colours which is smart thinking on her part.

Sorry, but while Camilla's style at the pageant was quite appealing, this shiny metallic coat with its very loud pattern plus oversized hat combines to a look which is far from elegant; actually, it borders a bit on the bizarre.
Not a fortunate choice for this occasion.

This colour is amazing on her,
although I don't like the pattern on her coat,
a little too much IMO,
she's wearing that lovely necklace again

It's a magnificent choker which Camilla first wore this year, during visit to Scandinavia.
You can read a bit more about it here (second part).

The pattern of her coat gives me a headache.

I have to say that I also liked Camilla's flotilla outfit better than this one. This hat is too supersized and overwhelming, and I didn't liked the loud crosshatched pattern on her suit. But I did love her pearl choker!

A very bold and magnificent choice to wear - the hat is fabulous and the coat is amazing. The pattern is unusual and different so it's a case if you either love it or hate it!
