Duchess Camilla has long been an unsung fashion hero of the royal family.

From her favourite classic Chanel ballet flats to her glimmering couture dresses worn to special occasions – the Duchess of Cornwall is just as stylish as her royal counterpart Kate Middleton when it comes to dressing up.

So when she stepped out this week for a public engagement with a rather dressed-down accessory – it was a break from the norm – though no less appropriate.

Attending the the Wightman Road Mosque in London on Wednesday, Camilla looked striking in a long black overcoat and white shirt.

During her visit, Camilla spoke to leaders from the London Islamic Cultural Society to hear how they had supported each other and the local community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Respectful to Islamic culture and Muslim custom, Camilla wore a white headscarf and left her boots behind as she entered the Mosque.

Instead, the Duchess wore a gorgeous pair of black fluffy slippers, which were adorned with a diamond-centered bow.

Camilla swapped into a pair of slippers as she stepped inside the Mosque.


The AUD $44 slippers come from British-based brand Pour Moi – chic and comfy footwear if you ask us.

Always one to push fashion boundaries, Camilla also added a standout leopard-print facemask to finish the look.

Never shy of making a fashion statement.


Camilla has never been shy of making a fashion statement.

On her recent visit to Greece, Camilla attended a dinner with husband Prince Charles looking incredible in a long, powder-blue dress with gold detailing.

Finishing the chic look to perfection, she wore a crimped satin-style gold facemask.

There was no denying this was one of Camilla’s most glamorous looks to date.

The Mosque visited by Camilla this week has been a staple in the areas relief effort in the wake of the pandemic.

As per a statement from Clarence House, members of the mosque helped people in need by distributing food hampers as well as providing counselling and advice to those struggling.

The Mosque was also the first to hold a pop-up vaccine centre in Haringey, in an effort to especially help people who felt hesitant about receiving the vaccine to come forward.
