The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall stepped in for the Queen today at the Maundy Thursday service held at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
For this event, the Duchess wore a new hat in navy sinamay. The design’s angular crown is trimmed with navy lace, the brim raises in an elegant sidesweep and the hat is trimmed with a double white silk rope hatband knotted into a wired flying bow on the side.
The hat’s shape and scale are familiar ones for Camilla, so it’s the details that set this design apart. The lace trim is a lovely touch, although I wonder if, to pair with this ensemble, omitting it would have calmed the overall look? Our conversations here often wish for Camilla to choose bolder colours and looks, I’m reticent to criticize this one, even though it feels a bit busy to me.
Designer: Philip Treacy. Dress and Coat by Bruce Oldfield.
