Camilla Parker Bowles gave us all a masterclass in heatwave dressing with her stylish look for Royal Ascot 2022.

Royal Ascot 2022 is in full swing, with the Royal Family - and what they're wearing - firmly in the spotlight, despite the Queen pulling out of the first and second day of the event due to her ongoing health problems. Prince William and Duchess Catherine also skipped Royal Ascot in order to attend a service in memory of the 107 Grenfell Tower tragedy. 

Camilla Parker Bowles made an appearance at the highlight of the racing season alongside her husband Prince Charles, driven by horse and carriage into the Royal Ascot racecourse on the second day of the races.

Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles rode in the first of three royal carriages. In the second was the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Edward and Sophie, and Princess Beatrice in the third.

Camilla was certainly dressed for the occasion, wearing a white summer dress and wide-brimmed hat to protect herself for the sun. She looked stylish and relaxed, seemingly unfazed by the soaring temperatures in the UK.

Like Kate Middleton's dresses selling out time after time, Duchess Camilla's outfit choices are often put in spotlight and fans were quick to praise her "beautifully elegant" outfit.

One royal fan wrote on twitter, "The Duchess of Cornwall is looking beautifully elegant today, as she and Prince Charles attend the 2nd day of Royal Ascot! #DuchessofCornwall #Camilla #PrinceCharles #RoyalAscot #RoyalAscot2022 #RoyalFamily."

While another royal fan revealed her dress was from designer Anna Valentine, writing, "We have lovely Camilla on Day 2 of Ascot Dress - Anna Valentine, hat is Philip Treacy, her jewelry includes her Alhambra & an anniversary heart bracelet, Launer London clutch vintage Chanel shoes, pearl choker small Diamond clasp, diamond earrings from Jubilee."

The Duchess' outfits have been the talk of the town lately, particularly after Camilla was photographed at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee wearing an item of clothing that once belonged to Prince Charles

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot the recycled outfit, with one writing on Twitter, "Loved the long jacket The Duchess of Cornwall wore at the concert, but love it even more now that she found it in Prince Charles' wardrobe … now that’s a rewear!"
