Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, yesterday joined her husband Prince Charles, and sister-in-law Princess Anne, for the first of the Prince's annual Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace.
And while the Duchess rarely gets it wrong when it comes to style anyway, she looked especially chic in the outfit she chose for the sunny day in London.
Camilla wore a gorgeous, all-white look for the party, with a button-down white dress designed by Bruce Oldfield, and a matching white hat complete with a white pearl necklace and matching earrings.
In a break from royal convention, the Duchess also opted for bare legs, rather than tights, given the warm weather in the capital on Wednesday.
Normally, female members of the royal family wear tights to formal occassions like these, although there are of course exceptions.
It looks like Camilla also wore a pair of stylish multi-tone heels from her favourites, Sole Bliss, who make comfrotable shoes for people who suffer from bunions, for the day at the palace.
Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace are an historic annual event, which have been hosted by the royal family for years, since the 1860s.
Members of the public are normally invited to attend, in recognition the service to their communities. It means that a range of people usually attend, including anyone from schoolchildren to charity workers and beyond.
The palace Garden Parties were normally hosted by the Queen herself, with the Duke of Edinburgh by her side. But in recent years, she's handed many of the events over to her son, the Prince of Wales, as she's slowly been handing more of her official duties to him as he prepares to become the next monarch.
It's likely that the rest of the family will attend more similar events over the upcoming summer months, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
The Duchess of Sussex may not attend this year, given that she is currently on maternity leave after welcoming baby Archie two weeks ago.
