The Duchess of Cornwall looked elegant as ever on Friday as she hosted an engagement in order to meet young women who have been supported by The Prince's Trust at Clarence House - as part of the Big Breakfast campaign.

Looking lovely in blue, Camilla chose to wear a statement dress for the special event, accessorising with a matching cardigan in a similar shade.

The women invited to meet with Camilla on Friday have taken part in different Prince's Trust courses including the Enterprise programme, which helps young people to start their own businesses, and the Get Into programme, which gives young people the vital training and experience they need to secure entry-level roles across a range of employment sectors.
