The Duchess of Cornwall stunned fans as supported a local cause. The royal stepped out in a gorgeous blue coat.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall stunned fans earlier this week as she stepped out in a gorgeous blue coat.

The Duchess visited the London borough of Brent as she supported the Kiln Theatre and the Granville Youth & Community Centre to celebrated the borough’s new status as the 2020 London Borough of Culture.

In usual royal form, Camilla looked incredible as she wore a bright blue coat with statement buttons and a sleek silk collar.

She finished off her look with her winter go-to casual knee-high black suede boots and black leather gloves to keep her warm in the cold outdoor weather.

Alongside a series of photos of the Duchess carrying out her important engagement, Clarence House wrote, ‘Today, The Duchess visited Brent to celebrate its new status as the 2020 London Borough of Culture.

‘At The Granville Youth and Community Centre in Kilburn, The Duchess met advisers and volunteers involved in the @lboc2020 programme,’ they continued. ‘The London Borough of Culture award aims to bring Londoners together and inspire young people to put culture at the heart of local communities’.

Speaking of the community centre, they continued, ‘The multi-use community building encompasses affordable workspace and studios for social enterprises and creative artists. On a tour of the @thegranvillesk, Her Royal Highness met local businesses and organisations in the enterprise space.

‘The community centre is inclusive, accessible and affordable for all local people and groups. The Duchess watched performances from a number of groups who use the space, including an Irish dance group’.

The post then went on to outline the Duchess’s later visit, adding, ‘Later, Her Royal Highness visited the recently renovated facilities at the Kiln Theatre. 🎭 The internationally renowned, and proudly local, theatre produces work presenting the world through a variety of lenses’.

They revealed that the Duchess even joined a youth theatre workshop, explaining, ‘The @kilntheatre has recently converted its stage ‘in the round’. Her Royal Highness met cast and crew of ‘Pass Over’, the first play to be performed in the new layout.

‘Before departing, The Duchess met Agents from the Brent 2020 social change project, The Agency,’ they added.

The initiative works with young people from marginalised areas to create social enterprises, events and projects that will have a positive impact on their local communities’.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
