Camilla Parker Bowles is back to carrying royal engagements again.

On Thursday, the Duchess of Cornwall visited the newly refurbished facilities at Victor Services Club as its Patron-in-Chief. The charity was founded in 1907 to promote “esprit de corps” among the retired members of the Armed Forces. At present, it has around 64,000 members.

Camilla attended the event without her husband Prince Charles. However, she still looked stunning in her pastel blue shirt dress.

The royal’s dress features a piped detail at the waist and has wide lapels. She paired her get-up with Chanel pumps with cream base and a contrasting black toe. She accessorized with a pair of pearl encrusted earrings.

On Sunday, Prince Charles accompanied Queen Elizabeth II for the church service. The Queen was photographed looking elegant and sophisticated with Princess Anne. Her Majesty donned a plum purple coat with matching hat. She accessorized with pearl earrings and a necklace.

The Prince of Wales was on a different vehicle. He looked dapper but his wife Camilla was visibly missing.

In the past, Prince Charles and Camilla had a hard time convincing the public to support their relationship. Princess Diana said in her infamous Panorama interview that her marriage with the future king didn’t work because “there were three of us in this marriage,” implying about Prince Charles and Camila’s affair.

Even Queen Elizabeth II didn’t approve of Camilla for Prince Charles. In fact, according to royal expert Penny Junor, Her Majesty wanted the Duchess of Cornwall gone even before Princess Diana died. Queen Elizabeth II didn’t feel any different after that. The Queen reportedly liked Camilla, but the monarch blamed her for the disasters that had befallen Prince Charles and his marriage to Princess Diana.

Many wondered why the Prince of Wales chose the older and divorcee Camilla over the young and beautiful Princess Diana. Netizens believed that Prince Charles and Princess Diana had a lot of differences that’s why their relationship didn’t work.

According to Basil Fondu, Prince Charles was considerably older, well-educated, well-traveled and worldly. On the other hand, Princess Diana was the complete opposite because she was young, undereducated, poorly traveled and unworldly.
