Battle Of Britain Anniversary Service

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall attended a Service of Thanksgiving and Rededication at Westminster Abbey yesterday on the 81st anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

For this event, the Duchess repeated the pale aqua blue hat with parabuntal straw domed crown and sinamay sidesweeping wide brim she debuted at Ascot in June. The design is trimmed with a padded silk hatband and knotted bow at the side, secured with a blue covered button.

It’s a scale and style of hat we’ve seen often on Camilla and while it makes a beautifully proportioned statement of its own, it does not compete with the star of the ensemble (that coat!).

  1. This coat is a stunner and the hat pairs so well with it. I also like the clutch as a nice foil to the blues. Camilla at some of her finest!

  2. One of my all-time favourite Camilla daytime looks. I just love the ribbon fabric coat and the colour looks great on her. The hat complements the outfit perfectly, and the pearls finish it off beautifully. It’s a 99.9 out of 100 for me – I just wish she’d take off the gold chains with pendants poking out that spoil the finish for me.

  3. This is such an excellent look for Camilla. The hat complements the outift beautifully.

    My husband and I were due to be at this service, but sadly they rescinded half the invitations a few months ago in order to be able to have distancing in the Abbey, and so it’s only people who were there in some official capacity representing various entities who were there in the end. But perhaps next year!

  4. Still a stellar look, that coat is stunning. This is such an iconic Camilla style, but if it looks this good, why not keep doing it?!

    • me too. Do you think she would let us borrow it? Just for those special occasions like grocery shopping etc. I would look great at Costco.
