Camilla Parker Bowles Looks Summer Ready in a Light Blue Ensemble

The Duchess of Cornwall accessorized with a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses.

From royal weddings and black tie events to international tours of the Commonwealth, Camilla Parker Bowles carries out a number of official duties—and she has to look the part of the wife of the future King of England. Unlike the Queen—and her step-daughter-in-law Kate—the Duchess of Cornwall usually steers clear of bright colors, favoring neutrals, pastels, and navy—with the occasional pop of bright blue. But when it comes to hats, she's not afraid to make a bold statement.
