It's wonderful to see them enjoying their trip. They both look great, and the Camila's attire choice is praise-worthy.

Agreed. And it's wonderful to see that not only are they enjoying their trip but they so obviously enjoy being together.

I think Charles is a witty and charming man and his "sense of fashion only changes every 25 years" comment is a typical, laughing self-(fashion) deprecating statement. Not something people should think is graven in stone.

His sartorial taste is modern enough and fashionable enough to land him on the Best Dressed List on occasion, 2009 being the last I think. His lightweight suits worn in Africa seem to have passed the fashion commentators by as they shake their heads at his wearing a 'heavy suit" in the heat of Africa.

Obviously there is a dearth of journalists who actually have a sense of humour let alone those who can recognise it as they watch and listen witlessly as Charles strides cheerfully in his father's (humorous) footsteps!

Fashion-wise, this has been a great tour for Camilla. I especially liked her white trousers and blue frock coat, as well as her beautifully coloured and patterned dresses worn with an assortment of jackets, her parasol the ultimate accessory! I just wish we could have seen Charles in a safari suit at least once, but I'll settle for his beautifully cut lightweight grey suits.

You can't help but laugh with Prince Charles.

Yeah,Prince Charles can be very witty and ironic sometimes,I always laugh about his fathers legendary awkward quotes,but he is also funny!
I believe both Camilla and Charles take great care in their outfits,they always look proper and elegant without trying too hard.It seems they are enjoying their time in Africa,I guess they are are happy they can leave Great Britain when it´s foggy and cold there ;-)

I would have said that Charles changes his style about once every 50 years - it has never changed. I don't think Camilla looked all that good on this trip - poor dress choices on too many occasions which is surprising as she normally gets it right.

If it wasn't the fashion that was so great it must have been the sheer happiness they exude as they move around Africa. Their smiles are infectious and a joy to behold.

Quite right. This was just an example of the self deprecating humour the British are best at!

I thought she was well dressed, as usual.

The "white trousers and blue frock coat" have been a favourite of Camilla's for some time. The ensemble first made its debut on her first official trip to the ME in 2006, and has been used extensively since then in travels to Asia and Africa.
