However, there is one aspect of the late Queen’s style that Camilla seems to have taken cues from since King Charles ascended the throne last year: matching her umbrella to her outfit.

This week, Camilla was spotted wearing an all-white outfit during a garden party at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. To keep off the rain, she held a clear umbrella with a white trim and a white handle, which perfectly matched her outfit - something the late Queen used to do.
It’s not the first time Camilla has done this since becoming Queen. She was also pictured in March at the Cheltenham Festival holding a black-trimmed umbrella with a black handle to match the gloves she was wearing that day.
While Camilla has long used clear-topped umbrellas, it appears that she has only made the switch to matching them with her outfits recently as before the late Queen’s death, Camilla often used an umbrella with a white trim only.

Matching an umbrella to her outfit was a favoured style hack of the late Queen, and she was pictured on numerous occasions touting pink, green, blue and purple umbrellas which perfectly matched her outfit.
Yet, it doesn’t appear to be a rule that extends to other members of the Royal Family. At the same garden party this week, Princess Anne stood behind Camilla touting a black umbrella.
The Princess of Wales has matched her umbrella to her outfit in the past, but tends to mix it up and was even seen with a rainbow umbrella in 2021.
What brand of umbrellas did the late Queen (and now Queen Camilla) use?
Like the late Queen, Camilla uses Fulton Umbrellas. Fulton Umbrellas were given a Royal Warrant by the late Queen in 2008, which is a mark of recognition to people and companies that regularly supply goods to the monarch.
The Fulton Birdcage Clear Dome Umbrella, which is the umbrella used by the late Queen and Camilla, is £25 and comes in seven different hues. However, you can currently find the umbrella discounted on Amazon for just £22.
A blog post from Fulton Umbrellas in 2017 explained the reason why the late Queen opted for the umbrellas: "Not only do these allow her to be seen by her public, they’re completely bespoke and are made to match her outfit. The Queen’s senior dresser sends us a colour swatch of the outfit she’ll be wearing in advance of an engagement and we’ll create an umbrella with a perfectly matched trim."
It really is all in the details.
