The Duchess of Cornwall is often praised for her willingness to have a go at something new whilst on royal engagements, and Camilla’s latest outing saw her take on a popular tourist pastime and pose between the wings of a mural during a visit to Liverpool with husband Prince Charles.

Rugged up in a gorgeous blue coat, Camilla looked her typically stylish self as she smiled in front of Paul Curtis’ famous mural, For All Liverpool’s Liver Birds, on Tuesday.

The 70-year-old looked lovely in the vibrant blue outfit, which was matched with a knee-high black boots and gloves for a busy day attending a number of royal engagements across Merseyside.

Together, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall first visited the Victoria Gallery and Museum at the University of Liverpool.

At the university, the couple met with the president of Ireland, Michael D Higgins and his wife Sabrina Higgins. The establishment aims to formally cement the prince and the president’s roles as joint patrons of Liverpool University’s of Irish Studies. Charles and Camilla have visited Ireland on many occasions including most recently in June 2018.

The Prince of Wales then visited St George’s Hall to view the newly discovered undercroft — which is traditionally a cellar used for storage in mediaeval times but has now been transformed into gallery spaces — before meeting Nelson Mandela’s daughter Makiziwe Mandela.

Next, the prince visited the Royal Albert Dock to celebrate its new royal status ahead of the 175th anniversary of the Dock in 2021. The Dock was opened in 1846 by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria and Charles’s great-grandfather.

Meanwhile, Camilla went solo to a children’s literacy event at Liverpool Central Library. Camilla looked in excellent spirits as she chatted to a group of students taking part in a reading session during her visit.

A keen advocate for the importance of reading and writing, the duchess is patron of several organisations that promote and support literacy, including the Book Trust, First Story, the Wicked Young Writer Awards and Beanstalk.

It’s been a very busy week for the royal, who was spotted sporting a stylish blue button-down coat on Friday as she attended another royal engagement.

Camilla looked effortlessly elegant as she visited community groups in South London before greeting kids at St John’s Angell Town Church and Primary School. Flashing a beaming smile throughout, she looked in her element as she walked alongside a group of kids and chatted to them throughout the visit.

What do you think of Camilla’s style? Are you a fan of the British royal family?
