And here we are. Predictable.

The Duchess looks very nice and Charles just looks bored.

Lets face it Cams has a "difficult" body. But i do think her last dresses (all from Bruce Oldfield i guess) are a major improvement from her first outfits with their low necklines. They are more structured and fitted too.

I'm glad the DM wrote a piece about Camilla's regalia today. It help give the readers some insight into what she was wearing and the history behind The Boucheron Tiara. Although they didn't mention that Camilla was wearing her Dames Grand Cross Royal Victorian Order sash and badge.

It's amazing to think that she attended today after all this time and I was so proud to see her at the State Opening looking truly regal. I don't know who her knew stylist is but give the man a Knighthood. HRH is looking wonderful recently.

This dress's fit is awful for HRH's body. Why on earth would she get a dress that is so fitted across midsection???

Also, until she gets a better bra, I'm just going to repeat: "droopy royal boobs."

I thought Camilla looked wonderful today. The dress is very nice and of course the diamonds are to die for.

I still think there's a a major improvement on the "structure" front with these Oldfield's dresses. No more low neckline is not bad either.

We had this :

And now this :

The overall effect is much much better.

I am not sure i have ever since Camilla lookking quite so regal as she did today.

Personally, I accept without question the size and shape of the decolletage of HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, not to mention the rest of her body. I'm not sure it is proper form to go about publically commenting in a negative way something that clearly does not wish to be changed.

Clearly she doesn't want to change it, but that doesn't take away from her décolletage looking rather déjected.

Also, Arthur the anteater would also look regal in gloves and diamonds, so I'm not going to give Camilla extra points for that.

The white colour is not particularly flattering on Camilla's, Duchess of Cornwall, figure. It appears to make her look bigger. She is not graceful or dainty to pull such pure white colour off.
I agree with TRF members noting that she needs to find better shapewear.

Your way with words never fails to impress me, Al_bina. I so agree with you and your comments. Perfectly stated, as usual.

Camilla did look good - way better than The Queen who looked old, tired and ill.

I love the dress- very elegant, and divine even though Camilla needs a better bra.

I think Camilla wore this dress last year at the state dinner for the Kuwaiti's at Windsor. Very few pictures were made available, but there is one on the blog link above.

Makes me appreciate Catherine doing it herself ans buying off the peg.
I think Camilla or, for that matter Catherine, could find it hard to buy a "regulation" White Court Dress off the peg.

I agree, and speaking from personal experience, finding undergarments that fit right is a pain the neck, and sometimes, no matter what you do, it just doesn't work the way you'd like. I give Camila props for going with what is more than likely comfortable at this point. I love the dress, and the jewels. She looked truly majestic.

Interesting, i think we have indeed a match. In november in Windsor i though the dress was beige but on second thought it's maybe the light :
