At the centre, young carers take part in outdoor activities as part of a team and build their self-esteem and confidence. The Youth Action CF centre closed during the lockdown but has reopened for small groups of carers to enjoy the outdoor activities on offer.

  1. This is Camilla's usual style which I like although in this instance I think it could be a bit more fitted - it looks a bit big for her. Absolutely love the cornflower blue.

  2. I like the updated look of the Duchess of Cornwall's dress. I have noticed for some time now she does not put much emphasis on the style and color of her shoes. I would like to see her wear more flattering shoes and also ones that coordinate with the color of her dresses!

  3. Not her best dress nor shoes colour combination with that blue.

  4. I would like to see her engage someone else to make her dresses. A different designer just might bring some beautiful results to her wardrobe. We saw how much better she can look when she was quarantining, wearing jeans, button downs and blazers. Her dresses all have a similar look and I have never found them attractive. Until she gets better undergarments, everything she wears will look ill fitting.

    1. She isn't going to get better fitting undergarments - this is obviously how she feels comfortable. As she frequents Rigby and Peller I think they will have been able to advise on the best. I think when you're in your 70s and you don't want to wear your bosom under your chin you've kind of earned that right.

    2. Of course you exaggerate when you say she doesn't want her bosom under her chin. It is ridiculous to say that any woman would. Camilla would look much better if her bra lifted her breasts closer to their natural position for the simple reason that it would create more space between them and her waist. She does not have much shape, being rather thick waisted. Putting things back where they belong would help give her some shape, which would be very flattering. It looks to me that Rigby & Peller is failing their client. A well-fitting bra should do its job and still be comfortable. It is also my understanding that Rigby & Peller lost their royal warrant a few years ago. Maybe their hearts aren't into their work after the downgrade from the Queen.

    3. I'm sorry - I don't understand how her breasts at not in their natural position here. If they need lifting somewhere, that implies moving, that isn't putting them in their natural position - it's putting them back where they would have been 40 years ago. Where they are now is their current natural position, fashion aesthetics notwithstanding.

      If she has chosen feeling comfortable over the advice of a "stylist", good for her. It's time older women were allowed to stop following the diktats of an industry that doesn't even especially target them.

    4. You should have stopped at "I don't understand". It is not possible to discuss anything with a person that has a closed mind. Camilla is in a fashion rut, and has every resource at her disposal. It is a shame she is not taking advantage of those opportunities.

      Enjoy color-coordinating your bras and shoes, since you think that is a perfectly normal, "natural" thing as you age.

    5. My mind is no more closed than yours with your rules and regulations about what someone should wear. Good to see that you are unable to explain how moving breasts somewhere they don't naturally sit is natural.

      Maybe you should stop smoking whatever substance makes you read things people never wrote in the first place.

  5. I'm sorry to say this dress is a miss for me, but I do like the colour.
    I used to think she is usually well fitted to flatter her, but lately I am not so sure.
    Maybe the tried and true style is getting a little old, and Camilla needs some new Ideas or Designers. (and some new shoes!)

  6. Beautiful shade of blue, which looks summery and comfortable. Mot a great fan of the brown shoes but think the dress suits her well

  7. Joli modèle estival mais je trouve que les surpiqûres qui partent de la taille semblent superflues ; un style plus sobre lui conviendrait mieux. Toujours ses belles boucles d'oreilles avec perles que nous voyons particulièrement bien sur la première photo !

  9. Quite frankly, I don't understand the discussion about Duchess Camilla Undergarments.
    There is nothing wrong with them or her figure, it is what it is and for a 70 + yrs. old Woman perfectly normal.
    Most of her outfits are well designed and well fitted, maybe too much of the same similar styles but that's a matter of taste.
    My comment about the blue dress was more about the strange trim and pleating that I personally don't like, certainly not about her under garments!

    1. Neither do I. But saying that will leave you open to ageist insults from people who can't even back up their own arguments.

  10. Well at least the argument isn’t regarding a lack of mask 😂
