When it comes to royal fashion, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle get all of the attention. And it’s well deserved. But who is the best dressed according to British Vogue editor Edward Enninful?
The winner is….neither.
“[He] adores Camilla, he thinks she’s the best-dressed royal,’” royal correspondent Emily Andrews said on Channel 5’s new documentary, “Secrets of the Royal Dressmaker.”
“He thinks she’s gorgeous and he wants to put her on the cover of Vogue.”
Both Duchess Kate and Princess Diana have been featured on the cover, so Camilla Parker-Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, wouldn’t exactly be throwing her fascinator into new territory.
According to International Business Times, Camilla has recently upped her fashion game. “In March, she wowed the royal fans when she attended Cheltenham Ladies Day in a cream coat, polka-dot dress and a chic pair of chocolate brown suede knee-high boots. Prince Charles’ second wife complemented her outfit with a matching plush fur-trimmed hat.”

The #RoyalVisitGermany continued today in the city of Leipzig, where The Prince and The Duchess were welcomed by crowds of local residents and visitors outside the Old City Hall. TRH signed Leipzig’s Golden Book and visited two churches: St Thomas’s Church and St Nicholas Church, which is the oldest and largest church in the city. St Nicholas Church is known as being a key location in the events of the “Peaceful Revolution”, the events which led to the division of Germany in 1989 and German Unification a year later. Tens of thousands of people marched peacefully from the church through the centre of the city. The Prince of Wales laid a white rose at the memorial column commemorating the Peaceful Revolution.
Like her daughter-in-law Middleton, Camilla is more comfy wearing casual clothes, but knows how to dress for the camera.
Royal author Claudia Joseph says, “Camilla, like Kate, is much happier in jeans and wellies playing with her grandchildren and dogs than she is in posh frocks,” adding that “She wears quite traditional clothing, elegant, tailored, not showing too much flesh.”
