Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, dazzles in a white and blue ensemble.
THE DUCHESS OF Cornwall was in Oxford yesterday, wearing a lovely frock and visiting a children’s hospice.
Camilla is a patron of Helen & Douglas House, and she paid a visit to the hospice to express her gratitude to the staff for remotely caring for the hospice’s patients during the epidemic.
During the lockdowns, the staff would use video calling to assist their patients with their medication.
Camilla looked great in a navy blue knee-length dress with a perfect fit.
White stripes in a criss-cross pattern, a white collar, and white cuffs ornamented the garment.
She wore it with her favorite Sole Bliss nude kitten keels, which she frequently wears on royal engagements.
Her hair was curled and combed into her signature bob, with a centre fringe that was slightly split.
Camilla wore her regular gold bracelets on her right arm, and a Fitbit on her left arm to track her steps during the exhausting day.
The costume was completed with a lovely gold charm necklace that gleamed in the sunlight as she welcomed the youngsters and their families.
The entire ensemble was tailored to her and the occasion, which was one of sincerity.
“I wish there were more of these hospices,” Camilla said, praising the staff’s efforts.
The Duchess of Cornwall hosts children from Helen and Douglas House at Clarence House for a tree-decorating lunch every year at Christmas, but due to COVID, the event will be held virtually in 2020.
The Duchess spent the day meeting a variety of parents and their children, listening to their accounts of how the pandemic influenced their treatment.
At Merville Barracks in Colchester, her husband, Prince Charles, was giving New Colours to the Parachute Regiment.
“I just wanted to thank all of you – all of the staff and all of the volunteers and all of the parents and families, because I know how hard it is for them, but somehow this place has a way of sort of uplifting you,” Camilla said in a short speech to the families and staff.
“I know how well people are looked after, I know it cares, and I know it encompasses the entire family; it isn’t only the child that is looked after; it is also the parents.”
The imprinted white design on Camilla’s dress drew the eye of many throughout the day, as she fit. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
