Once again Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is upping the fashion stakes. On a rainy autumnal day, she visitedEbony Horse Club andDwaynamics boxing club in Brixton, London.To hear about how both places have been coping during the pandemic.
Sheltering from the rain with a large Fulton umbrella she wore a joyouspatterned scarf with a green tartan skirt, black blazer jacket and block-heeled knee-high boots - we think they’re the same ones she wore the other day too! Not forgetting her leather gloves, which have become a bit of a staple for her and pearl earrings. A lesson in style for all of us.
