Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is the second wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, heir apparent to the British throne. Camilla became an official member of the Royal Family in 2005, at age 58. After a late night of entertaining the NATO leaders from around the world last night, today Camilla visited Emmaus Greenwich - a charity that provides a home and meaningful work to people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion - in celebration of their 25th anniversary.
Camilla was dressed in purple for the occasion, a colour that is typically associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power and ambition. So was she trying to send a secret message to the British public?
Camden Clark, a royal enthusiast and blogger, seemed to think so. She commented: “The Duchess’ look today definitely gave off vibes that she is trying to convey to the public that she is ready to be our Queen, traditionally purple was only reserved for the elite of royals and the wealthy.
“I think in a subtle way she’s trying to convey that she’s stepping up to her future role and responsibilities as Queen,” she speculated.
“After all, she has been stepping up on several occasions recently including taking on the responsibilities of greeting the Trumps [with Charles] before the NATO reception at Buckingham Palace,” she added.

However, today’s outfit choice wasn’t the only secret message that Camilla was trying to convey. She also chose to wear a particular piece of jewellery which could have significance. What was it?
Being married to the heir of the British throne definitely has some perks, such as access to some of the impressive jewels in the royal vault.
However, the Duchess of Cornwall has her own jewellery collection which is no less impressive.
There are many beautiful jewels and gems in Camilla’s personal collection that she has inherited from her family, but there’s one particular piece she regularly wears since marrying Prince Charles.
The piece in question is a pair of pansy brooches the Duchess has worn pretty regularly since her marriage to the Prince of Wales.
