The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall spent the second day of their visit to the United States with stops at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, George Washington’s Mt. Vernon estate and the Shakespeare Company. Camilla began the day in a new coat topped with one of her go-to wool winter hats trimmed in faux fur around the brim (the same hat we saw her wear last week).
Update: according to several people who attended these events, Camilla started the day without her hat and added it half way through. Reports are that it was a breezy day and I suspect Camilla added hat hat to protect against the wind. Whatever the reasons behind this addition, it created a very unusual sight as we seldom see royal women carrying their hats.
I have promised a closer look at Camilla’s many hats in this style- stay tuned for this later this week, after we get through all of these state and foreign visits!
