Not too keen on the hat for the racing event though. I'm trying to picture the size of the hat box used to transport it in:smile:

Elly - I thought I was the only one who ever thought about those big hat boxes in transit! I suppose because I used to travel so much for business and lug the printed materials, the laptop, occasionally the golf clubs or tennis racquet - I know what a drag all the extra baggage can be. I wonder if the royals use UPS/FedEx to ship things ahead the way I used to :lol::tongue::lol:

This is so funny - these adorable little girls are giving Camilla flowers, and she is saying (I am sure), "Oh and I have a dress just like yours only it is long sleeved and navy blue - and everyone is so tired of seeing me wear it!"

It would be funny if she actually said that :biggrin:. That dress is indeed getting extremely old. However, what she's wearing in the photo is quite lovely.

Fully agree with you, she looks lovely.

The Duchess seems to have found, at last, what really suits her with the simple dress/ fitted jacket combination :

Does anyone recognize the day 4 dress from an earlier outing? I'd like to see what the top looks like without the jacket. It seems to be a patterned fabric on top?

Camilla looking lovely in white today in Sydney

Also, a lovely beige dress for the reception

I like both the colour and the beading of the reception dress - the colour suits her complexion. I must say Camilla has chosen dresses for this tour which are flattering to her figure and appear to be comfortable to wear. I know she has many variations of pearl necklaces/chokers but I would now like to see a very different choice for an evening event.

Lovely, plain and simple.

I love the second dress, but not the first.

Loved both her dresses today. She looked very nice. Also loved Charles holding her shoes as she was stepping down. What a gentleman.

The top half a nightgown, the bottom half a costume fit for Pocahonta's Granny on a musical stage:
The shapeless creation chosen by The Duchess of Cornwall in Auckland last night must be one of the worst evening dresses she has ever worn.

Tragic front! Like synthetic curtains sewed togeter and including a short bead curtain. The cape is nice and goes well with her hair. But that dress.

Oh Camilla i heart you but i fear this one is a big no no ...

On the other hand, she had plenty of room to fit in her meal! And she is wearing the serpent necklace.
