Camilla pulled a Princess Beatrice on Wednesday when she honored the Royal Air Force — while attending a town parade near a local air base — by wearing an Eeyore-hued blue-gray beret featuring an over-sized navy rose encircled with what looked like Saturn's rings. Like Beatrice's pretzel-antler creation, the noticeable fascinator was fashioned by world-renowned London milliner Philip Treacy.
The Duchess of Cornwall, 64, further accessorized with a pearl necklace, pearl earrings, a blue paisley and polka dot scarf, a blue Anna Valentine coat dress, blue sweater ... i.e, a lot of blue, as it's the RAF's official uniform color.
While it might come off as a little overkill, you gotta hand it to the royal for taking a few risks. Now, how do we get her to toss around a few toilet bowls, ala Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander?
Rina Raphael is a TODAY.com editor who wants to adopt Camilla as her godmother.
