Camilla did not wear a traditional choice of a tiara for the service, as the couple were not marrying in a church. Instead she opted for a white hat by designer Philip Treacy for the official ceremony and for the blessings she wore a headpiece constructed of dramatic gold feathers. The bride-to-be chose two outfits for the day, both designed by Anna Valentine and Antonia Robinson. For the service she wore a cream silk dress, followed by a pale blue chiffon gown with a long-sleeved, gold-embroidered coat over the top. 

Her Majesty and the late Duke of Edinburgh did not attend the ceremony but were present for the blessings and photographs at Windsor Castle. The rest of the immediate Royal Family were in attendance, including Charles’ sons by his first marriage Prince William and Prince Harry and Camilla’s children Laura and Tom Parker Bowles. Other notable guests included Joanna Lumley, Richard E. Grant, Edward Fox, Jilly Cooper, Valentino Garavani and of course, a plethora of foreign royals. 

The newlyweds honeymooned at Birkhall house, a royal seat Charles had inherited from his grandmother, the Queen Mother, after her death in 2002. Situated in the grounds of the Balmoral estate, the couple’s first days of married life were no doubt spent out on the windy Scottish moors and in the cosy confines of the royal residence.
