Camilla offers a glamorous take on traditional tennis whites as she arrives at Wimbledon

The Duchess of Cornwall is the latest royal to enjoy a visit to the All England Club, arriving at SW19 for a behind-the-scenes tour this morning. 

Camilla recycled a favourite dress for her trip to south-west London, sporting the elegant v-necked Fiona Clare dress she wore to Prince Louis‘ christening in July 2018.

The royal looked on sparkling form for the solo visit to SW19 as she met with the staff, officials and ball-boys and girls who help to bring the two-week tournament to life.
