It's been a busy week for 73-year-old Camilla. On Tuesday, she joined husband Prince Charles on an official royal visit to Coventry Cathedral. The blonde royal looked amazing in a navy blue dress which she teamed with her favorite cape coat and a crisp white shirt. Layering her items, it gave her outfit a contemporary feel.  Accessorising to the max, she added black, knee-high boots and carried a black handbag by Demellier, which she also has in green.
