The Duchess of Cornwall steals the show with her flashy red hat as she celebrates Wales.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth was brought to Wales by Camilla Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles for the opening of the Welsh Parliament.
At the sixth ceremonial opening of the Senedd in Cardiff, the Queen was joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Camilla looked stunning with a red gown and coat, as well as a stunning hat that matched the color of the Welsh flag.
This was a lovely reference to the country to give respect to the people there, as her husband, Prince Charles, is the Prince of Wales.
Suzanne Brompton, a royal admirer, praised the Queen and Camilla on Twitter, writing, “Both ladies look wonderful today.”
“Camilla donning red for Wales,” another fan, Heather Lacey, remarked. It’s fantastic!” Camilla wore a magnificent red wool crepe coat dress by Fiona Clare with a striking matching hat by Philip Treacy as she arrived with Prince Charles ahead of the monarch.
The hat resembled the Welsh flag, and royal analysts interpreted it as a sign of respect for the locals.
The blonde queen wore her hair in a bob with fringe and minimal makeup to draw attention to her features.
The Duchess also carried a black bag and donned her black kitten heel shoes.
In a Stewart Parvin costume that included a rose A-line coat and a silk dress with seasonal florals in grey, fuchsia, and olive, the Queen looked stunning.
She also wore a Rachel Trevor-Morgan matching hat and a Welsh Daffodil brooch as a sign of respect.
The Welsh National Anthem and the British National Anthem were both played when the Queen arrived at the Welsh Parliament, and a royal salute was delivered.
In front of the Senedd, the Guard of Honour was in place.
The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, and the Llywydd of the Senedd greeted the Queen.
However, a party advocating for Wales’ independence overshadowed the Queen’s entrance.
Before the royals arrived at the Senedd on October 14, République Cymru wrote on Twitter: “Our Senedd’s existence and right to exist as our seat of democracy inside Wales does not require the approval of a monarch.”
“Its entire existence was determined by the people, and one day it will be free of the residues of this foolish posturing to individuals. #NoKingsNoQueensNoCrowns”The.
