Turquoise is definitely one of her best colours!
Over the years, Camilla has developed an extensive wardrobe of conservative, South Asian inspired clothes. She has used these clothes across geographies (in the M-E, Africa, South Asia, and the UK) and most of them have been used time and again.

Perfect for the occasion. The blue and white really suits her and she looks both cool and elegant. I like her beautiful "Poppy" which seems a sort of unofficial tip of the hat to the occasion while giving a real "pop" of colour. Just lovely.

A very flattering design for her figure. The Duchess looks very comfortable yet still very smart and elegant - not a easy combination to pull off.

I like the floral pattern of Camilla's dress, but I personally think that the outfit's design isn't particularly flattering.

I totally agree. She either has a talent for this, or has excellent advisers.

Gosh, she looks beautiful! I love the dress-such a lovely floral print. And the shoes, necklace, and hairstyle: all wonderful.

This latest outfit makes her look 80. I am not a fan of this at all.

If I look like that at the age of eighty, I'll be thanking my lucky stars. Love the outfit.

I am older than she is and would never wear that thing. But on the other hand she looks comfortable. You can look very stylish at 80. My mother will be 99 and would never wear that.

but then again we might not agree what is stylish.

Camilla looks comfortable, in tune with her surroundings, and people seem happy to be with her. That is more than many can say.

I like the look - and I talk as a fellow Brit, with blonde hair and a dislike of heat and humidity. Loose clothing helps a lot and a general cover-up ensures that no one can be offended.

I think she has developed a great wardrobe for the tour to date. But dont be surprised if you see it all again as she is doesn't buy new every time

And surely it is about how she looks and what is appropriate - not what we personally would wear.

In my opinion, The Duchess of Cornwall is looking really nice on that dress. My grandmother is over 70, and she uses some dresses like that of The Duchess.

Of course, different countries have different fashion, but a few years ago, a social columnist who is a friend of my family said grandmama is one of the most stylish old ladies of the Carioca society.

I like the outfits this trip. She blends in with the people and she looks comfortable. Being fair she already stands out.

Not keen on this outfit. The print of the fabric is far too busy and doesn't flatter her figure. Also the shoes are a definite no no .

Love the hat, but the zebra like pattern of the outfit makes my eyes hurt.

The dress is not my cup of tea. The shoes should be black but hat is okay.

I think the hair looks natural white as the roots are showing.

You and I think alike, because the dress made me think of zebras right away. Yeah, not a fan of that pattern. Very painful to look at. The hat is nice, however.
