In a fashion statement that has since lit up social media platforms, Queen Camilla, 76, recently made headlines and spurred discussions with her latest public appearance. Stepping in for her husband, King Charles III, the Queen of England attended a significant event at Worcester Cathedral.

Adding to her ensemble, the Queen donned a furry hat from Lock & Co. and wore two gold and sapphire flower brooches pinned on each side of her coat’s collar, heirlooms that once belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth II. Her attire was rounded off with dark brown leather gloves and a dark-colored, stylish Moynat handbag, retailing at $3,500 on Sotheby’s online store.

As images and videos of the Queen at the event circulated online, social media users did not hold back in voicing their opinions. Many people were unimpressed with the Queen’s look, expressing their dislike for what she wore. One social media user criticized, “She is soo thrifty.. Buy a new hat,” while another exasperatedly stated, “Why does she always spoil her outfit with BOOTS!”

Another pondered, “Why does she wear the same hat (sometimes a different color)???” and someone else even went so far as to deem her “the bag lady.” However, amongst the vitriol, some people complimented Queen Camilla‘s style. One fan praised, “Love the ensemble” and another gushed, “The Queen looked fabulous.”

Despite the fashion furor and commentary, what remains a focal point of the story is the significance of the event. The official Instagram page for the King and Queen of England shed light on the contextual background of the special occasion.

In one of their captions accompanying the pictures they shared of the event, they explained, “Maundy Thursday commemorates Jesus sharing the Last Supper with his disciples and commanding them to ‘Love one another as I have loved you.’ The tradition of the Monarch or their representative presenting alms on Maundy Thursday goes back to 1213.”

Among the sea of signs and well-wishers, a particularly poignant moment unfolded as Queen Camilla approached a group of young girls, their hands clasping signs that bore messages of love and support for Princess Catherine, who has been battling cancer. Among them was a young girl, her sign simple yet powerful, reading, “Send our love to Kate.” This touching display led to Queen Camilla speaking directly to the girls.

The Queen Consort, embodying grace and compassion, engaged with the group, ensuring that their heartfelt messages would reach Princess Catherine. Queen Camilla remarked that Princess Catherine would be “thrilled” with the signs, a statement that not only acknowledged their efforts but also bridged the gap between the royal family and the public. Taking the signs from the group, she promised to deliver them to Princess Catherine. The girls were sisters Lois, six, and Harriet, ten.

The promise to transport their letters “carefully” for the Princess was made amidst apologies from Harriet about the cards’ slightly creased condition, a result of the day’s blustery wind. “I’ll take them carefully and will make sure she knows they’re coming,” the Queen responded, her voice carrying the weight of assurance and comfort.

This recent unfolding of events sheds light not only on the public’s unwavering support for Princess Catherine in her battle with cancer but also on the evolving relationships within the royal family.

“Camilla is as stoic as she is forgiving,” Seward noted, emphasizing the Queen Consort’s capacity for compassion and resilience. The diagnosis of Princess Catherine’s illness has served as a catalyst, bringing her closer to William, who had harbored intense disapproval of Queen Camilla in the past.
