From  my  post.... 171   ...  you can see that  Judith is  a very attractive lady
(Im really quite taken with  her  from her appearances on Egg Head )
but I wonder ... is she really directly decended from Alice Keppel....  as  Camilla  undoubtedly is !
Alice was obviously a  very important lady in the life of  King Edward
(wonder if  Alice  has her own thread in here ? )
No Judith is not descended from Alice...but from a brother of Alices husband.
Alice had no sons only 2 daughters...the elder Violet Trefusis was childless the younger Sonia Cubbit was Camillas maternal grandmother.

Of course, the Duchess can turn out in a simple dress suitable to the climate, while Charles, as a man, will be expected to wear a suit and tie whatever the weather.Ann

But don't you think it's at least party Charles' preference to wear a suit and tie to every occasion?  I don't think anybody would be offended if he turned up in lighter attire and an open collar.  Surprised perhaps at this point, but not offended.  Other European royals dress more casually at official functions in hot climates, it's just the Brits that tend to stick to the conservative suits and ties all the time.

Check out William AND Camilla's hair.  I've never seen either wear their hair styled like this.

Yes, the shape of the face is very similar.

Camilla did look very nice!  What is the name of the tiara she was wearing?  For some odd reason,  I want to call it "The Honeycomb" - but am really not sure?

Also,  I noticed that Camilla was also wearing The Royal Family Order.  Anyone know when she got that?  This is the first time I've ever seen it on her ..

Quite - the Duchess was wearing the Boucheron Honeycomb tiara.   It was commissioned by Lady Grenville in 1921 from the French jeweler Boucheron.  Lady Grenville later left the tiara to the Queen Mother, who subsequently left it to the Prince of Wales. 

I'm not sure when the Duchess received the Queen's Family Order - there is never a formal announcement, one only knows it happened after the new holder wears it in public for the first time.

Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.
