I am surprised to hear that you think that, the story was on the BBC as shown by Nico's link. I can't speak for ITV as I don't tend to watch their news. It has also been in all of the papers.

I got stuck on a train tonight and during the silence, two old girls were going over the London Lite;

Old Biddy A : Is that the Queen Mum?
Old Biddy B : No, it's Camilla
Old Biddy A : Launchin' a boat? Oh she was launchin' a boat that's right, I see it on the news before I come out
Old Biddy B : That's a nice 'at. I want summink like that for Julie's weddin'.
Old Biddy A : It's probably Marksies.

I agree about the newspaper coverage, but I don't recall the BBC running this story as part of their main evening programme ... I might have nipped out & made a cuppa & missed it!! I don't think either ITV or Sky gave it a high profile either.

I'm surprised by how much praise this outfit is getting. I think it is one of the worst she has worn since she married Prince Charles. The colour is lovely but the clothes are totally shapeless and it dosn't look nearly warm enough for this time of the year, especially beside the sea. I also don't think her hat is sitting properly on her head, I like these kind of hats usually but it just dosn't look right. All in all a 6 out of 10 IMO.

BeatrixFan, you are positively hilarious! Old Biddy A and Old Biddy B--too much!
Regarding the hat and the outfit--I think she looks nice, she always looks nice and she is just radiant! But, she has looked better and more regal. Someone did point out that one of her regular sized hats might not have been appropriate which is why she went with this hat; I don't particularly like it, it's a little too matronly for me, but Camilla always looks lovely irregardless.

I think Camilla looks lovely, and Charles must be very proud.

The first thing I noticed was how radiant the Duchess looked, then how happy Prince Charles was. Then I noticed her outfit which seemed to honor the Queen Mother. I think that this was a special occasion and the Duchess and PoW looked very happy to be there and it showed. She looked lovely and I think it had more to do with how happy she was than the clothes she was wearing.

I agree! She didn't look like herself. She looked like she raided QE or QE2's closet for an outfit to wear. It really isn't her usual style and doesn't suit her.

What a delightful way to put it... But I enjoyed the idea, too, that she raided the closet Charles inherited from his grandmother as well - maybe they kept it when redecorating Clarence House.... . Okay, it's said any man instinctively sees for a woman who resembles his mother or grandmother (depends on who he felt closer to) and I found that it's true with my husband, as I could be a relative of my mother-in-law, we have a lot in common including looks. Maybe Charles simply enjoys this style and as the 70/80ties retro is still in fashion - why not?

The outfit may seem 'old fashioned' to some of you, but to me it really brought sunshine to a cold day. The style wasn't just from the Queen Mothers 'day', it is a timeless classic with it's duster coat.

We would all have been complaining (at least I think we would), if she had turned up in the mini skirt and crop top, worn by an OAP, I had to endure looking at! Thank goodness I hadn't eaten!

I have seen photos of the Duchess' outfit. In some photos it is blue in other photos the coat looks gray. I guess it must be the light that day.

In most photos, Camilla looks good. It is her signature style of updated, classical look. I think her hat is a little different then her usual and the blue color of the garment that reminds everyone of the Queen Mother.

In another gallery of images, I noticed the pic of Charles all giddy. He was so tickled to see a photo of his teen self visiting Southampton! It was very cute!
