THE Duchess of Cornwall yesterday gave Cheltenham races Ladies' Day the royal seal of approval.
The duchess, accompanied by her son Tom Parker Bowles daughter Laura Lopes, and Princess Anne, was in the royal box for the day and was also spotted talking to Zara Phillips. Arriving by helicopter at mid-day, Camilla was wearing a dark jade jacket, brown boots and a brown-rimmed fur hat.
Sarah Johns, 45, of Manchester, said: "She was looking as classy as ever. I think the colour really suited her."
Belinda Wiltshire, from Swindon, waited to catch a glimpse of the duchess.
She said: "I've seen Prince Charles before and Princess Anne, but never met Camilla so I thought it might be nice. She looked absolutely fantastic."
