Duchess of Cornwall Awards Service Medals

The Duchess of Cornwall  presented medals to soldiers from the 4th Battalion The Rifles to mark their return from Afghanistan at their barracks in Bulford yesterday. For this engagement, Camilla repeated her slouchy black hat with faux fur upturned brim. If this hat looks very familiar you are quite correct- Camilla has this same hat in chocolate brown, in grey, in lighter brown, in medium brown, in brown tweed and in black (the other black version has a bushier faux fur brim). To own the same hat in six versions obviously shows that the Duchess is mad about this hat. I’m afraid I can’t say the same thing as the top is just too slouchy for me to fall in love with. What do you think about this one?

  1. Having viewed all the versions, I agree that this version is the best. The close-up makes it look a little like a witch’s hat, but it goes well with the coat. It’s a good outfit.
    Camilla does not need additional versions of this hat, however.

  2. Hmmm, I actually thought this one was real fur. I agree, though, there can be too much of a good thing, and this is it! I do love her though!!

  3. Camilla looks very smart in this hat. I like how the fur brim matches the collar and cuffs on her coat. It’s a beautiful coat.

  4. I actually prefer this version of the hat compared to the other six versions, and I think it looks rather smart with her outfit. While it is not my favorite hat, I think she looks lovely in it.

    • I also like this version best- I think it’s because the faux fur brim on this hat is trimmed more than on the other hats and it makes the hat look more tailored (and less wild).
