Camilla Parker Bowles is a senior royal known for championing women’s rights. She is the patron of a number of women-focused charities include Rape Crisis. Today she attended a girls school as part of her role as President of Women of the World.

The Duchess of Cornwall, who will one day be Queen, made a nod to Scotland with her tartan skirt.

Camilla is quite the fan of this look and has a vast number of tartan garments in her wardrobe.

She added a chic pie crust collar shirt under a grey jacket, ad wore her favourite everyday earrings – the pearl and diamond ones.

Earlier today she visited The Royal Foundation of St Katharine.
