You have to give credit to Camilla: With Kate Middleton out of commission for a bit and King Charles recovering from surgery, too, the Queen has—by default—been tasked with holding down the royal fort. Stressful, sure, but she handles it with grace—and in style. Case in point: The Anna Valentine cashmere camel coat she chose to wear during a visit to a women’s refuge in Swindon, England this week. (It’s past season and custom, but we found an equally striking option here, $280.)

For us, it’s the delicate stitching along the edges that makes it feel special and unique. A camel coat is a winter staple—this we know—but that added flourish was just enough to make this particular version of it a total stand-out.

It’s also not the first time Camilla has worn it. Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II and Camilla’s first Christmas as queen, she stepped out in this exact same Anna Valentine style for a church service while at Sandringham in January 2023. She wore it again this past December for the royals’ Christmas Day walk-about. This proves the value of a quality coat in a neutral hue: It provides structure, but also enables a bit of effortless one-and-done dressing. (TBH, who really cares what’s underneath with a coat that chic?)

So, what’s the easiest way to copy Camilla’s style? Sleuth out a camel coat that comes with a unique styling detail or flourish. We pulled a handful of unique options below that accomplish this exact idea and will make you feel like royalty in the process. A win-win.
