Makes me appreciate Catherine doing it herself ans buying off the peg.
I do not think Camilla has ladies-in-waiting. Does anybody know any better?

Hardly....go to any bridal salon! Elderly matronly bride in pure white ball gown is not a flattering look on either Camilla or QE.

I always thought white lace was for babies and brides only.

It would seem that Sofia, Paola and MT also missed your memo on white lace

The dress appears to be a light cream. The white/cream lace dress seems to be the norm.

The bra might be built into the dress or she has on a strapless and for her bosom size it might not be enough support.

She needs a girdle until she loses some of the tummy.

I don't think she has any ladies in waiting, just 1 or 2 parttime assistants.

She needs a fulltime dress designer who can tailor her clothes as her weight fluctuates or make new clothes for important events or overseas travel.

Or, she could do what the rest of us do...get on the treadmill a few hours a week. Fat is no respecter of titles!

May 9, 2013 - Camilla in a navy dress with a white collar.

The fit looks good on her but the hem looks added to make it slightly longer IMO.

Navy dress with white collar. Odd bit on hem, lining showing? Lovely smile :)

Wonderful in the court dress. Love the lace top and the pleating where it started really does flatter her. do think the drooping has improved considerably.
She wears the Greville tiara beautifully. She looked great, the best of the four of them by far!

Just a question ---at these state ceremonies does the queen and female members of the royal family have to wear uninterrupted white. I only ask because I was looking back at state opening of parliament videos from 1950s 60s and 1981 and everyone was in uninterrupted white including when Diana in 1981.

I know for my social organizations on formal occasions like installations , inductions, and funerals , we have to wear on interrupted white.

I think the Queen always wears White for occasions such as state banquets, state opening of parliament etc. This she she wore her Diamond Jubilee State Gown. Presumably the formality of the event enables the ladies in waiting and this year Camilla to follow suit.
I suppose it's abit like saying does Prince Philip always have to wear his uniform or the peers their robes!

In this picture, the dress does not look white-white. I understand that it is an old B/W, but compare it to the white shirts in the crowd.

Jack - I found this. The opening of Parliament is a white or gold event for the Queen.
I hope you enjoy the old pics (and think you will). I did!

The grey green coat / dress emerged again today in Exeter when Camilla inaugurated the Devon County Fair. This ensemble first premiered in NZ last year, and has since been seen in Middlesborough, Amsterdam and again today.

If I am not mistaken, the hat dates back to 2006, and has been used every so often previously. I think the last outing was last summer.

According to the Express Camilla was at a Memorial service at St Pauls today. Repeat outfit but it seems to be fitting better. And she looks lovely.

The Duchess of Cornwall proves she's as stylish as ever in matching monochrome | Royal | News | Daily Express

Agreed, the navy Bruce Oldfield coat works very well for Camilla. She has used it on a number of occassions in the last year including at the trip to Fortnums, at Easter 2012 and in Canada.

Interesting that Camilla is increasingly now turning to Bruce Oldfield for her clothes. Has she moved on from Anna Valentine?
