Diamond Jubilee Watch: Camilla Reveals Her Penchant For A Statement Accessory, And, Er, Beige...

11/07/2013 18:43 | Updated 22 May 2015

Who: Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (aka MyDaily's unofficial favourite member of the royal family)

Where: Out and about for the Jubilee celebrations, first at the Diamond Jubilee street party by Fortnum & Masons, and then at the Jubilee pageant on the Thames.

What: You'll notice that the Duchess has acquired a knack for making statement accessory work for her. The pearl and diamond necklace, the kid leather gloves, the boxy clutch and the unapologetically ostentatious hat all get the royal thumbs us. We just wish the Duchess would take a leaf out of her daughter-in-law's book and add a splash of colour into the mix. Camilla began the day in a beige belted mac (we're willing to assume that she was wearing something underneath although this isn't entirely obvious), before making the transition to an even paler shade of beige for the celebrations on the Thames. We understand that it's the Queen's big day and all, but we can't help but feel that Camilla took the idea of blending in a little too literally.

By contrast, Kate was determined to make a splash on the Thames:
