The Duchess of Cornwall and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands simply are two ladies with an outspoken love for big, bold hats and ladylike gloves, often in combination with outspoken jewels. I like that. They dress like you would expect a royal lady to dress for formal events. The Duchess of Cornwall often seems ready for transportation by time machine to the Reigns of Edward VII and George V.

Camilla wears the Edwardian look with its flamboyant styles very well. With a hat like that, a cape and a rapier, she could also be further transported back in time as one of the Three Muskateers.

This outfit is similar to the the 2010 Trooping of the Colours outfit.
It is the same hat & choker.
(IMO, the stone looks pale purple.)

Trooping the Colours
2005 Cream suit no necklace
2006 (Absent due to father's death)
2007 Gold with string of gold pearls.
2008 Green (repeat from her daughter's wedding minus the fascinator with 3 strand pearl necklace)
2009 Pale blue/aqua suit with her 3 strand pearl choker with aquamarine clasp.)
2010 Pink suit with cream blouse with a rounded collar and 5 strand pearl choker with pale purple stone.
2011 Cream suit with 5 strand pearl choker with pale purple stone.
2012 Pale blue with her 3 strand pearl choker with aquamarine clasp. The hat a repeat from 2009.
2013 Cream suit with 4 strand pearl choker with oval diamond clasp.
2014 Pink suit with cream cream blouse with a V neck collar and 5 strand pearl choker with pale purple stone. Hat a repeat from 2010.

The 2009 Ascot looks like the same outfit from 2010 Trooping the Colours.

Has it ever been established what the pink stone is? Sapphire, topaz, tourmaline, quartz? It's not a diamond, as they don't come that large in pink.

Her pink suit details (at the shoulders) are unusual and very attractive on her.

Not that I am aware of. Its a great choker, IMO, one of the best of the European RFs

It's pink topaz.

The Queen is lovely in cream as she arrives to see the royal steeds compete at Royal Ascot | Mail Online

Camilla looks lovely in crème today at Royal Ascot. She has used this jacket previously (not quite sure where). The hat was used at Ascot last year, and then again, in Normandy a few weeks ago for the D-Day commemorations.

Camilla looks wonderful. I love the detailing on the jacket, just gorgeous. Also, can I just give a shout out to Prince Philip, he is so dashing, adore the pink carnation. Two days in a row, he's been my best dressed at Ascot.

It is at formal events like this (the Trooping, Garter day, weddings etc) that Camilla is impeccably turned out. The less formal and more "regular" engagements are where standards can sometimes slip.

At fisrt glance i thought it was the same hat too, but in fact it seems to be a different one :

In Normandy

Camilla Parker Bowles Photos - The 70th Anniversary of D-Day Landings Commemorated - Zimbio

Today

Camilla Parker Bowles Photos - Royal Ascot 2014 Day Two - Zimbio

An i agree, Cams is at her best in formal.

Not sure I can still tell the difference, but if you are convinced, that is good enough for me

Camilla is looking great in the cream outfit. It's elegant, and suits her shape.

Ah, the Trooping of the Colour and a symphony of hats and ensembles and pretty, pretty baubles. This year I love the whole look and the "massive chapeau" is truely splendid. But, as we all know, the devil is in the detail . . . and what a "detail" it was. After being starved of the sight of this beauty out she popped with her glorious pearl and pink topaz choker and her signature drop pearl earrings.

Then came Day 1 at Ascot and a beautifully restrained blue ensemble that was subtle but nevertheless sported a magnificent chapeau, and finished with one of her favourite pearl chokers with a diamond clasp and her signature pearl drop earrings.

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...68_964x631.jpg

Ascot Day 2 and I am in love . . . from the top of her stunning Crème Chapeau throuh her Crème coat offsetting an ivory? dress. Camilla looked magnificent, the colour, the fit and flare of the skirt, the length, just perfect.

http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/C...iaITLo_Zkl.jpg

And Hello!! just to tantalise us once more, there was that magnificent Pearl and Pink Topaz choker. But wait a minute, what's that I see . . . she's wearing the matching pearl and pink topaz earrings and it gives the whole ensemble a feeling of warmth.

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...11_964x644.jpg

Mmmm. Sublime.

Camilla's old favourites made a return today when she carried out engagements in Wiltshire today. I think this jacket and skirt date back to 2007 or thereabouts.
