Camilla Parker-Bowles has been busy this week as she has visited various locations in London alone, without Prince Charles. She will, however, be joining her husband at the reception of the G7 Summit in Cornwall tomorrow.
Camilla looked happy and cheerful today as she stepped out for her latest royal engagement on what would have been the 100th birthday of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Duchess visited the Garden Museum in London to open the annual British Flowers Week exhibition.
Photographs posted to the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall’s Twitter page showed Camilla speaking to staff at the museum and looking at the colourful flowers on display.
The Duchess’ outfit matched the flowers as she opted for a brightly coloured dress in strong colours.
Camilla’s dress was dark turquoise and covered in a unique jungle print.
Leaves, trees, and even animals featured on the garment.
Among the animals were red and purple toucans and black and white ring-tailed lemurs.
The dress was mid-length, reaching below Camilla’s knees and had three-quarter sleeves and a collared neckline.
The dress’ skirt was slightly pleated and was tied at the front.
The Duchess of Cornwall paired the printed garment with a colourful patterned mask, but this time the print was floral.
The mask was green and covered in white, blue, yellow, purple, and red flowers.
Although the mask did not match the dress, Camilla stylishly pulled off the print-clashing outfit.
As for accessories, the Duchess wore a pair of low pale orange heels and carried a small nude tote bag.
Camilla completed the summery outfit with two gold necklaces and tiny dangling gold and quartz earrings.
Royal fans were quick to comment on the Duchess’ look and noted how “beautiful” she looked.
One Twitter user wrote: “How lovely! Such beautiful flowers! And our Duchess is the most beautiful one of them all.”
Another person said: “Beautiful, natural and an asset to the Royal Family.”
One person added: “The Duchess’ mask game is strong.”
Another royal fan wrote: “Stunning!”
After seeing the exhibition, Camilla was given a bouquet by the museum containing a rosemary, which is a sign of remembrance.
The Duchess thanked the museum’s staff and made a short speech, in which she referred to the Duke of Edinburgh and her father, Major Bruce Shand, we passed away 15 years ago to tomorrow.
Camilla said: “I’m very honoured to be here, to be doing something I know they both would have appreciated.”
