Camilla never disappoints when it comes to her fashion choices, but her latest outfit choice may be her best yet as she stepped out for a solo engagement on Tuesday in a stunning silky summer dress.
The Duchess of Cornwall visited Ivydale Primary School in London to mark Internation Literacy Day. The 73-year-old looked lovely in the patterned midi dress with a pussy-bow neckline as she visited the school’s new library. The duchess is the patron of the National Literacy Trust, and believes “each child should have the opportunity to discover the magic of reading”.
Camilla teamed the beautiful dress by Fiona Clare with a silk mask made by the fashion designer, nude heels and a straw bag. Clarence House shared several images from the outing on social media, captioning the post: “Today on International #LiteracyDay, The Duchess of Cornwall met students at Ivydale Primary School in London who were getting creative and taking part in fun literacy activities.
“Author Chris Smith entertained the students with poetry readings in the school hall and the duchess visited the school’s new library, which aims to use the power of stories to excite, inspire and educate its pupils, staff and the wider community.”
Royal fans were quick to praise the duchess on her efforts, with one writing: “Good work always done by The Duchess of Cornwall. That outfit looks amazing on her.” Another added: “The duchess is such an elegant lady. She looks fabulous as always.” While a third wrote: “Camilla looks lovely and is a real asset to the RF [royal family].”
The engagement comes just a few days after Camilla shared a delicious recipe for Scottish oatcakes as part of a virtual taste tour around the UK. Camilla and her husband Prince Charles came across the delicious oatcakes during their visit to Blair Atholl Watermill, in Pitlochry back in 2017.
Clarence House shared a step-by-step guide to creating the delicious oatcakes last Wednesday — and revealed the simple recipe only requires three main ingredients — oatmeal, salt and water — and takes less than an hour to prepare and cook!
The royal residence also revealed that oatcakes are thought to date back to the Roman times and “are commonly eaten at breakfast or served up with a cheeseboard”.
