  1. You have all covered everything I wanted to say. Thank you all for the chance to observe and admire but with respect.

  2. Normally I would restrict my comments to what the site is intended for–hats, but today I will simply say thank you for not posting the picture of Camilla in tears. It was quite an invasion. Also, I love that Charles is not only holding her hand but that their fingers are intertwined. Perfectly loving display. That’s all.

  3. It’s a stunning outfit and a wonderful photo. The hat obviously is black in the other wearings, but today’s hat does look navy. (Could she have two?) I hope she wears this outfit again — at a happier occasion.

  4. I know it’s not the right time… But Camilla looks absolutely stunning. That suit is beautiful, and so flattering. I feel very sad for her loss, it was far too soon – and her brother seemed a much loved character.

    • I think her suit is navy but the hat is black. If you look back at its previous wearings, you’ll see it is black. I suppose she dressed to match Charles’ navy suit and black tie. I’m not usually a fan of black and navy together but it looks beautiful today.

  5. Thanks for the respectful photo and coverage. All the other royal sites showing Camilla crying are tasteless.
