  1. Something different than her usual type of dress, but still lovely! Even with the strange crinkles at the back... She knows very well what suits her. I may only hope I have that much style when I am her age...

  2. Amincie, bien habillée, enjouée, la duchesse est attachante.

  3. Bizarre la robe ; je ne suis pas sûre mais je crois voir des empiècements ou des poches sur les côtés qui alourdissent la silhouette de Camilla ; elle aurait beaucoup plus d'allure si elle portait une petite veste/jupe dans un tissu léger ; elle serait superbe !

  4. Oh dear, Charles, get a hair cut! I feel the dress looks rather, not sure the word, but its very 'every dayish' for a royal visit. The side-pocket things are useless, and take away from a clean line. Overall, both of them looked 'crinkled/wrinkled. It was a beautiful sunny day, the sky looked lovely.

    1. Thank goodness Princess Diana is not around to see these pictures. I have no consideration for either one of them.

    2. Absolutely Anon 1:40 - Diana was a total saint.

      You would think that knowing the pain she felt given her situation she might have thought twice before having affairs with not one, but two, married men.

      None of them behaved well.

      And your comment has nothing to do with the comment you replied to.

  5. Nice to see them on this lovely summery outing.

    I like Camilla's dress although it is a bit creased.

    I like the summer suit Charles is wearing. Personally I can't see anything wrong with his hair.

  6. Not a fan of the pleating. The mix of fabrics is lost in the sun. This may be one of those dresses that doesn’t photograph well.The color is nice and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Camilla wearing a smart watch before.

    1. She has been wearing the smart watch for a while now. I have been admiring it for several weeks.

    1. I like the dress, and I think it has a slimming effect. What a honor to have an air ambulance named after her. Well done, Duchess.

    2. No, I like it too. I think she looks really nice even if the back-side pleat is a bit odd and the shoe colour a bit strange with the blue. I think Charles hair also looks good. I do not see why just because he is older his hair cannot be longer. I would however like him to find another tailor. I don't mind the crumples so much as the cut of all his suits. He has slimmed down somewhat now his suits should be slimmed down too.

  8. I have the pleating is figured in to keep it from blowing up if the wind would pick up.

  9. They both look happy;great to see them out and about enjoying the sunny weather. I like Camilla's dress;Charles looks okay;but a sports jacket might look more relaxed.

  10. Camilla's dress surprises me. I like it much more than I don't. I like the weight of fabric and the pattern. What I don't like is the detail, whatever it is, on the hips. It reminds me of saddlebags. Added attention on the hips is rarely a good idea. Maybe it would have been better going with a kick pleat in the back. As much as I don't typically like Camilla's fashions, this is a refreshing change. She looks slimmer. Again, her shoe color is awful. I would love to see these shoes retired. Shoes the color of her bag would have looked so much better.

    Charles' hair looks bad because his neck is hairy. He is usually more pulled together than he has been lately. If he wants to wear his hair longer, but he should clean up his neck. Add in his suits that are now a bit over-sized, especially at a lighter summer weight, and he does not look like his usual dapper self.

  11. I like this dress, its very becoming on the Duchess. Love the colour of her shoes.

  12. Obviously the wind was blowing and Charles does need a new suit. A ,long drive from London so hence the creases!

  13. I like Camilla's dress very much. The length is also unusual but very good for her. (-Ann.)

  14. From Joann - First thing I noticed was how white their hair is. Camilla's dress didn't look that wrinkled until she got out of that helicopter. I think the material must be a pure cotton and not a blend of something. She probably chose the cotton to keep cool. The modern fabrics don't breathe that well in hot weather.
