Camilla turns heads in a crochet mini-dress, stunning fans with her luxurious turquoise earrings
Duchess Camilla turned heads last week as she arrived at the Guildhall in London. She was there to present this year's The Man Booker Prize.
She kept her look Royally elegant as she wore black. Her jewelry was the center-piece of her outfit with the earrings she wore catching the eye.
Prince Charles’ wife, Duchess Camilla, 71, wore all-black for the reception at Guildhall in London. She wore a crotched top black dress with a knee-length skirt.
Her outfit was completed with a pair of black heels and delicate turquoise earrings. This year's Man Booker Prize winner was Northern Irish writer Anna Burns.

In her speech, Camilla mentioned a number of women on the Man Booker shortlist. Four out of the six authors happened to be women.
She praised the inclusiveness saying:
“Yes, despite what you read in the newspapers, some things are moving in the right direction.”
The Duchess has been scarce lately as she missed Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding on October 12. It was revealed that she had a prior engagement on that day.
The Royal had to visit a school in Crathie, near Prince Charles' Scottish estate. On that Tuesday, Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter had given away the reason on Twitter.
She’d written at the time:
"Turns out Camilla is carrying out 2 engagements with a number of children on Friday 12th, Eugenie's wedding day. This stuff is not as easy to reschedule as you might think."
The Duchess’ spokesperson denied any bad feelings between her and the newlywed couple saying:
"They get on very well, the couple has no issue with it. They have known about the diary clash for some time."
