She’s got one of the most impressive wardrobes in the world alongside her royal family members and Camilla ensured she dressed for the occasion as she was welcomed as guest of honour at a Scottish concert on Monday.
The Duchess of Cornwall, 71, looked striking in a green tartan skirt and matching green jacket with a vibrant tartan collar as she met performers and staff at St Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh.
Holding a bouquet of flowers, Princes Charles’ wife flashed a beaming smile as she chatted ahead of a musical rendition by NYCO Scotland and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. They performed a new piece of music, ‘Requiem: The Souls of the Righteous’, composed by Professor Paul Mealor to mark the centenary of the First World War.
Funds raised from the concert will be donated to Osteoarthritis research at the University of Aberdeen, of which The Duchess is Chancellor.

Camilla wore her signature necklace featuring three rows of pearls finishing in a huge jewel at the front, in a design reminiscent of those previously worn by the Queen.
Funds raised from the concert are being donated to Osteoarthritis research at Aberdeen University – of which the duchess is now chancellor.
Social media users praised her appearance, with one writing: “She looks lovely as usual. I bet this was breathtaking to watch and experience. I’m sure the Duchess was honored (sic),” while another added: “The Duchess has some beautiful clothes. A very vintage feel.”
The Duchess of Rothesay has attended the premiere performance of a new piece of music, composed by Professor Paul Mealor to mark the centenary of the end of WWI. ‘Requiem: The Souls of the Righteous’ was performed by @NYCOScotland and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra on Saturday at St Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh. Funds raised from the concert will be donated to Osteoarthritis research at the @uniofaberdeen, of which The Duchess is Chancellor. The ‘reflective and poignant tribute to peace’ will be broadcasted on @ClassicFM in November.
Camilla has been enjoying a few weeks out of the spotlight with her family, having last been pictured out with Charles in Glasgow at the start of the month.
On that occasion, she looked stunning in an elegant powder blue suit with a flattering pleated skirt and light cream suede heels.
Adding a statement beaded necklace and classic pearl earrings, Camilla couldn’t fail to stand out at the Willow Tea Rooms on Sauchiehall Street, where the couple were placing a wood carving in position to mark the end of a four-year restoration project.
The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay carried out engagements in Glasgow today – thank you to everyone who came out to meet TRH. This morning, The Duke and Duchess toured the recently refurbished Mackintosh at the Willow tea rooms after the historic building was reopened following a four-year restoration project. The building was designed by Scottish architect and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1903. The new tea rooms have provided young people in Glasgow with a place to learn hospitality skills and training after a partnership was formed between Dumfries House, @theprincesfoundation and The Willow Tea Room Trust.
She co-ordinated perfectly with Charles who opted for a navy blue suit and patterned tie for the event.
The couple later met trainees taken on by the tea room following a course organised through the Prince’s Trust, before Camilla indulged in a cuppa of her own. Clarence House explained on Instagram: “The building was designed by Scottish architect and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1903.”
