I feel like Camilla could use the services of a seamstress that understands fitting and the use of darts, etc. As a long time seamstress I cringe everytime I see ill fitted clothing.

:previous: She needs to throw back those shoulders, too. Pilates would help. :tongue: (But its all in the bra! ;) )

The same coat earlier with a dark scarf against the cold:

I can't quite make out which choker she is wearing . . . anyone else spot it?

As this is a fashion and not a jewellery thread, a couple of posts have been moved to the following thread:

** Duchess of Cornwall Jewellery 7: September 2011- **. Please continue the discussion there!

I like the coat but the brown boots don't match the outfit at all, I'm afraid.

Baroness of Books 04-06-2012 10:49 AM

Agreed, gray or black would have looked better.

For a visit to Aberdeen today, the Duchess of Cornwall wore a lovely tartan suit.

Just as for the official visit to Sweden, the Duchess is wearing the noblest of Royal Tartans - the Balmoral Tartan.
The Balmoral Tartan was designed by Prince Albert, The Prince Consort back in 1850's. The overall grey look with over-checks of red and black was meant to achieve the appearance of rough granite. The Balmoral Tartan can be worn by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family - but only with the Queen's permission.

That is a very nice tartan on her; I like the blend of colors.

Daria_S 04-18-2012 11:19 PM

I really like this particular tartan on Camila. The blend of colors are complimentary and suit her very well.

blujean 04-21-2012 11:20 PM

Her suit is really nice. Love the tartan print

NoorMeansLight 04-22-2012 09:42 AM

The tartan suit looks good on Camilla.

Thanks for posting the history of the Balmoral tartan and fashion, I did bot know Prince Albert was responsible for designing it!

Camilla looks lovely.
The top and the skirt do appear to be a bit mismatched colour wise, but the overall look is quite pleasant. The choker is beautiful.

As Honorary Air Commodore, RAF Halton, the Duchess of Cornwall received the Freedom of Thame on behalf of RAF Halton today, May 2nd, 2012.
Camilla wore a lovely blue coat combining it with matching hat and a scarf, as well as her regiment's wings (the pin).
Love the hat; it's quite quirky and not at all like the usual hats Camilla wears.

Really like the outfit, especially the hat; and its Airforce Blue - fantastic!

Baroness of Books 05-02-2012 01:54 PM

A beanie fascinator, it does look good on her though I have somewhat mixed feelings about it. But I love the blue outfit and the scarf.

Danish girl 05-02-2012 03:40 PM

I really like the black outfit except the bottom of the skirt.

I like the blue outfit too. Especially the crazy hat. However the scarf just looks misplaced.

Daria_S 05-02-2012 04:52 PM

I like the black and the blue outfit on Camila. The grey-blue coat is lovely, and the hat is...interesting. The light scarf gives very nice contrast too. It stands out, and gives the look some pizzaz.
