We loved Camilla's latest look. She decided to opt for a beautiful pastel blue, fit and flare dress, that came complete with a collared neckline.The light material kept her cool whilst still looking glam, and she added her fave slingback nude heels, a fab rattan bag and topped the look off with a pair of leopard print Ray-ban sunnies. Chic!

The mother-of-two stayed cool during the blistering hot heat wave by carrying a parasol which shaded her from the harsh summer sun. Camilla's hair looked as coiffed as ever and subtle makeup accentuated her features.

Maybe Camilla has chosen to take style tips from another royal – the Duchess of Cambridge. During their royal tour of Asia in 2012 Kate visited a war memorial in Singapore with husband Prince William and stayed cool by carrying white parasol, making sure she was shaded during the walk.

Duchess Kate looked as gorgeous as ever in a  bespoke, duck egg blue dress with lace panelling by Jenny Packham and although the parasol was a must-have in the over 30C heat, it did provide a super chic addition to her outfit.
