Oh yes, it would be great to see the Crown Princess. Hopefully she is feeling much better.

I had the impression from the still photos that Camilla looked rather nervous, but it might have been just the strain of jet-lag.

According to the Prince of Wales's diary of engagements, TRH will be hosted a Dinner by the Emperor and Empress tonight. It will be a highlight event, and for sure that Camilla would be out for a Tiara, and Order of the Precious Crown as well.

It must have been jet lag, she isn't silly, after all, what is there to be nervous of?

Edit: I think Camilla owns this pair SMARTIE-Sale Courts-LK Bennett and this pair STORY-Sale Courts-LK Bennett as well, not sure about the color

Many many many many thanks to you jinigirl! I'm off to order (hope they ship internationally!)

But wouldn't it be usual for her to change before arrival?

I wonder what Crown Prince Naruhito said to make her laugh?

Camilla and Crown Prince Naruhito
The Crown Prince probably said "Those gloves looks really strange with that outfit"

Prince Charles arrives in Tokyo to campaign on global warming
October 27

Accompanied by the Duchess of Cornwall, he was greeted in Tokyo by Crown Prince Naruhito, who cut a solitary figure, being unaccompanied, as usual, by Crown Princess Masako, who has not carried out official functions since being diagnosed with depression.

I agree on the favourite pic. It just exudes marital harmony

It's listed as a private dinner not a gala so probably not a tiara and decorations event.

Thank you milla Ca and giov for all the pictures, I know it takes time to find them all! A wonderful selection from milla Ca as usual! Charles and Camilla really looked like they were enjoying themselves, but I am somewhat jealous, (not a normal reaction for me), they met my hero Asimo!
---------------------
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla arrived here Monday on a visit to Japan, the first in nearly two decades by the heir to the British throne

Channelnewsasia.com

What a pity they didn't have our own milla Ca picking the photograph to use!

I'm not sure to like this day outfit.
The color is nice but the pearls on the shoulders are a lilltle bit too'"Dolly Parton".


Sadly no tiara for the dinner but a very new beautiful and well cut dress for the DOC.

The color is flattering. Not too much cleavage. Nice and of course appropriate japanese touch. One of her best evening dress Imo.

A special bonus : a nice curtsey

No tiara? No decoration? One is sad.

Lovely pictures. The evening dress looks regal, it seem to fit very well and Camilla looked radiant in it. Its a pity that it is a private dinner, and we are robbed of the opportunity to see Camilla bedecked in her wonderful jewellery.

I too was not a huge fan of the suit that Camilla wore during the day - IMO the dangly bits on the shoulders were not really Camilla!

Her shape makes for an unnatractive fit where many of her evening gowns are involved, and as such, reflects the middle age spread quite well, imo. She could be better assisted and I do feel she's being let down. Certainly she wouldn't be the easiest shape to dress but a better job could be done! And considering it's no doubt tailored, I expect more.

It looked 'ok' from the back with the detailing. But front on...ugh! Still, it's a lovely colour on her and she wears it with a smile!

I do deplore that damn chocker, though. I'd love to learn of it's unforeseen dissapearance...

I agree that some of the detailing on the front of the dress is a bit amateurish, but IMO the dress as a whole works very well.

Her bust is ample enough without being subject to materials which induce shimmer across the chest. Her waist and hips are also areas which seem to possess a reasonable abundance of width and are often afflicted by detailings which draw the eyes, as is here the case. Overall, I think it's quite frumpy.

HRH has the potential to look amazing...though as of yet, I've seen such a sight but a mere few times.

Her posture truly isn't the best either.

All my own opinion, of course...
