Queen Camilla looked suitably festive in a bold red dress as she met with Santa Claus and his reindeer at a very special children's charity event.
- Queen Camilla looked ultra festive and cozy as she teamed a red dress with a smart cape to meet with Santa and a real life reindeer for an important Christmas get-together at Clarence House.
- The newly-appointed Queen Consort hosted the event for two children's charities, spending time with charity bosses, little ones and parents.
- In other royal news, Queen Camilla just wore King Charles' coat with a showstopping tiara on a red carpet.
With Santa Claus himself arriving at Clarence House with a real-life reindeer in tow, Camilla joined with children supported by Helen & Douglas House and Ronald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity to decorate the Christmas tree at the royal residence.
The charities work to support terminally ill children and children with complex health needs and Camilla gathered with young charity users to hang decorations on the tree, with Father Christmas joining in too.
Queen Camilla, who is a patron of both of the UK-based charities for unwell children, looked festive in a merry red wool crepe dress by Fiona Clare as she thanked charity staff for all they do for the families in need at the annual event.
Addressing attendees and wishing them all a joyous Christmas, the Queen Consort said, "It’s always a treat for me to start the Christmas season here, it literally kicks it off for us.
"I’d really like to say a huge thank you to all of you because I’m sure all the parents here are so indebted to what both the charities do for your lovely children.
"So I'd just like to wish you all a very, very happy Christmas," she added.
