As much of Australia shivers through the last months of winter the UK is basking in the height of summer, enjoying a peculiarly warm spell as temperatures skyrocket this week, but the Duchess of Cornwall kept her cool in the warm weather as she stepped out at the Sandringham Flower Show in pretty pastels.
Camilla looked stunning in a mint green pleated frock on Wednesday as she joined husband Prince Charles at the annual event, clutching a charming parasol overhead to shade her from the midday sunlight.
The 72-year-old duchess kept her look simple opting for an accordion-pleat shift dress in a flattering shade of pastel green, which featured a V-neckline, mid-length sleeves and a drop hem-line, flowing down to her knees.
Camilla paired the understated frock with one of her signature pearl necklaces, this time opting for a low-hanging, single strand piece, along with a pair of beige court shoes and a pair of dark sunglasses to shield her eyes from the summer sun.
She was joined by her husband the Prince of Wales for the outing and the heir to the throne looked dapper in a beige suit, which featured a double breasted jacket, as he greeted members of the public at the flower show, which is in its 138th year.
Charles mirrored his wife, carrying a large golf umbrella around with him for the royal outing, as well as opting to wear a pair of dark wayfarer style sunglasses.
Earlier this week, Camilla delighted royal fans as she mingled with royal supporters and got up close to some adorable animals at the UK’s biggest agricultural show.
The duchess is known for her love of horses and she looked in her element as she posed for a photo with a small pony at the Royal Welsh Show in Wales on Monday. Joining husband Prince Charles, the duchess looked lovely in a beautiful pink polka dot dress, teamed with a pair of nude court shoes and a smart Burberry trench-coat.
During the visit, the royal couple met farming leaders and representatives of the prince’s charity Countryside Fund, as well as presenting prizes to winning breeders and their sheep and cattle, while the duchess visited the floral pavilion and saw a number of horticultural projects from local communities.
