Is that a new purse she’s clutching? It really is deliciously beautiful grey leather.

A classic duchess of Cornwall signature look and a wonderful soft colour too.

This definitely feels like classic Camilla. And I absolutely say that in a positive manner. She knows what works for her, what she feels comfortable in, what looks beautiful on her. All around well done.

I have to admit that, some years ago, I could not have imagined that she can look so adorable.

In my younger teenage years I was Team Diana, but as I grow older and understood more and got a wider look on everything, I can say I am totally Team Camilla by now.

And yes, she knows what looks good on her and I absolutely love how she can wear the big hats. Creme, beige and offwhite are her colours.

I love her hat today. Gorgeous.

It seems that beige, cream, and blush nude are going to be the trend this summer among royal women.

It still surprises me that this woman that leans sporty/country life can carry off these huge, elegant hats with such ease. It's a rather delightful fashion mystery. Keep bringing it, DOC.

100% agreed. I know that her outfits will almost always be in the same vein but I still look forward to them every time because even though they follow the same pattern, they're always just perfection for him. And those hats...

Yes, Camilla likes a pared-down unfussy look and this definitely reflects in yet another wonderful hat, but the dress is very deceptive. It is the result of clever creation of downright magical proportions that looks like it is lined with heavy silk or some such substantial material that they have used to create a more straight shoulder and also makes the embroidered pearls look natural but the end of the three-quarter sleeves was the wonderful flare of chiffon silk, soft and feminine that echoed in the multitudinous layers of the skirt that moved and swirled with such feminine elegance from soft inverted pleats whereas before she would have worn sharpe pleats or inverted pleats with no floaty anything.

Her attention to detail was spot on with the light and dark curls on her drool-worthy hat, neat little clutch and perfectly bi-colour pair of shoes with an illusion heel that makes them look just a little higher than they actually are and accentuate a fine pair of legs with trim ankles. Further, the magnificent millinery, elegant clutch and shoes are all from "shopping her closet".

A really lovely colour on the duchess and a nice neat hairstyle too.
Perfect look for warm summer day events.

She really seems to have taken to shirt dresses this year! The good thing is that they work for her, and she seems to be willing to try darker colours than those she normally wears in summer.

This dress style does suit her nicely. Pretty shade of green.

The darker backgrounds really look good on her and the shirtwaister style is a great look for her. The last few summers fashion seems to have been large pastel florals on a pastel background which do not look good on Camilla. For daywear, she has these handy workhorses which look very comfortable yet suitably elegant for the occasion and for specials occasions such as Ascot she defaults to her equally beautiful block neutrals with stunning hats. Camilla really does know how to shuffle her wardrobe to best effect and gives women of a certain age a lift by proving you don't have to be dowdy.

I agree, she seems to be having a good run currently. In recent years, there have been times her clothes have looked quite dowdy, but she seems to be on a good run currently. Perhaps she now has a new stylist working for her.

You'll have to get in line! It is beautiful and so very few people can wear green well and with confidence. It is my favourite colour.
