Day 3 in Amman, when C&C visited the refugee camps. Camilla was wearing a beige tunic, with creme trousers. This is a style she has used very effectively for many years, and has tunics in similar designs in soft blue and sea green as well.

The "far east" wardrobe from Anna Valentine is always very flattering and appropriate.

Camila looks very lovely, and comfortable a well.

Love the color, even if it looks like she's wearing a bathrobe, or nightie!

Point taken , though I think this may be down to not having great pictures without watermarks.

Both shades of blue are lovely for the Duchess. She must be very comfortable in this attire, since I imagine the heat is pretty intense.

Oh my, this is not a good look. The hat looks like something out of My Fair Lady, the fit on the coat makes it seem like a shirt is bunching up underneath, and the boots are straight off the seedy parts of Wilshire Blvd.

I love the outfit and hat, though the boots are a bit much for Camilla!

I am in total agreement with casualfan. Too much going on and the shiny boots don't help. I do however, like her in purple.

The purple is a flattering color. However, she really needs to add some form of exercise to her day, now that she has little time to ride. At her age especially, the post menopausal hormone levels really do a number on your metabolism.

I noticed that, too. Last week though, in relatively flimsy outfits in the Middle East, she didn't look as chunky. She seems to have a peculiar relationship with the camera. From one day to the next, she can look better or worse, more so than most people. Maybe it's her posture. Maybe it's just my perception.

I'm sure you're right about the exercise, too. I'm around her age, and with that schedule I'd go nuts.

Are you suggesting that HRH has gained weight?- laughs

Her Highness looks wonderful in purple, and healthy as well. The shade is very flattering.

Her undergarments were never of the finest quality if I dare say so... Perhaps quality is the wrong word, but they never seem to help the fit of some of her outfits.

I realised that this might be misunderstood. I am a bit younger than Camilla but built on similar lines and it is so difficult to overcome that middle spread, especially when exercise is limited. This is a woman who loves walking ,riding - an active life, but since she broke her leg a few years ago and had a period of enforced rest, the weight went on and at 67 it must be difficult to shift. I've been through the same and I'm trying to shift it but it is so much harder than it used to be.

Love the color on her! She just needs a more supportive bra.

Or let's just say as a general theme...what used to be called better corsetry. I can understand why she doesnt want to wear them as they are not exactly comfortable. But a bit more aerobic exercise would solve the issue. Time is a bitch with claws and she gets meaner as we get older....
