The Duchess of Cornwall opted for a gorgeous holiday must-have handbag for a recent engagement.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall always wins in the style stakes (opens in new tab) and now that the coronavirus lockdown (opens in new tab) has eased she is certainly making the most of being seen out and about in public again.

The Duchess has been seen a number of times over the last few weeks as she has been carrying out important engagements (opens in new tab), making visits with Prince Charles (opens in new tab) and even celebrated her birthday with a lovely photoshoot (opens in new tab) out in the Clarence House (opens in new tab) gardens.

And as always the Duchess looked fabulous as she pulled off her elegant but fashionable sense of style.

But it seems, just like all of us, that the Duchess may be missing being able to get away on summer holiday, as it looks like she’s broken out her holiday wardrobe for summer engagements.

Duchess Camilla attended a royal engagement in Cornwall earlier this week alongside her husband the Prince of Wales, where she was seen sporting a chic bamboo handbag.

The Heidi Klein number looks perfect for sunny days wandering around cobbled streets or even days at the beach with a cocktail in hand.

Duchess Camilla accompanied the bag with a gorgeous pale blue checked short-sleeved dress and a pair of pointed tan heels.
