The Duchess of Cornwall dazzles in an white silky number on the second evening of the Jordan tour

The Duchess of Cornwall dazzled in a glamourous all-white ensemble on the second day of her and Prince Charles’ official visit to Jordan on Wednesday evening. 

Camilla, 74, cut an elegant figure in a floaty white top and trousers by Anna Valentine, which she paired with a matching white scarf, as she and husband Prince Charles attended a Centenary Celebration of the founding of the Jordanian state at the Jordan Museum in Amman. 

The royal, who wore her white blonde-hair carefully coiffed, looked perfectly poised in the stylish outfit following a busy day of engagements around the Jordanian capital.  

Meanwhile, Prince Charles, who also made a quick change for the occasion, cut a dapper display in a crisp white shirt, navy blue suit, patterned tie and smart pocket square.

The Duchess of Cornwall accessorised with gold bracelets on each wrist, an elegant necklace and a pair of pearl drop earrings.

She completed her outfit with an eye-catching gold clutch bag and matching shoes to complement her ensemble. 

Camilla opted for glamourous makeup and added a dash of mascara to bring out her blue gaze, a layering of foundation to complement her healthy glow, as well as a nude lipstick. 

The couple arrived alongside the British ambassador to Jordan Bridhet Brind, who looked smart in a white suit jacket and pale pink dress, and the Jordanian Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, who was dressed in black.

After arriving in the Jordanian capital yesterday on official duties, the couple were hosted at Al Husseiniya Palace by King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, including a lavish private dinner on Tuesday evening.

Today, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Umm Qais, the site of the ancient 3rd century BC city of Gadara, before returning to Amman to visit a secondary school and refugee centre.  

Keeping cool in the desert sun, the Prince of Wales opted for a light, camel-hued suit with a striped tie and white checked shirt and a comfy-looking pair of beige shoes, while Camilla wore a sage-coloured Fiona Clare floral dress – with low-heeled court shoes in caramel. 

The second day of their visit, delayed by almost two years due to the Covid pandemic, saw the couple turn tourists as they made the 75-mile hop north of the Jordanian capital to the town – where Jesus was said to have performed one of his seven miracles. 

Day two! Prince Charles, 73, and Camilla, 74, arrived in Umm Qais, the site of the ancient city of Gadara, this morning for a walking tour around the historic ruins, which lie two hours' drive north of the Jordanian capital of Amman, where the couple enjoyed an extravagant dinner at Al Husseiniya Palace on Tuesday evening (Pictured: Charles and Camilla on the main Roman street at Umm Qais)

After a walking tour of the main amphitheater and museum, accompanied by Jordan’s Princess Dana Firas, the couple returned to the capital this afternoon, as the Duchess of Cornwall carried out two solo engagements focusing on empowering women. The Prince spent time hearing the stories of refugees at a Amman community centre. 

Addressing guests at an event for the Women of the World Foundation, of which Camilla is President, the Duchess said: ‘There are so many inspirational ladies here doing so many things and they have done it by themselves. We’ve got the first lady plumber here, someone from the Army, so many things.

‘I think here[Jordan] would be the perfect place to start a WoW. I feel we could do a great job here. 

She joked with the gathered crowd: ‘I have written down a speech but I seem to have gone off-piste a bit!’

She went on: ‘I heard some wise words from Queen Rania. Her Majesty once said: “When a woman succeeds, she reaches out to those around her and pulls them up to her. That is why when you empower women, you empower a whole society.”

‘The collective experience of the women in this room proves the truth of those words.’

Acknowledging the strong relations between the UK and Jordan, the royal added that there was now ‘serious reaching out and pulling up across our two countries.’

At the WoW event, which was held at the Manara (the Arabic word for ‘lighthouse’) Arts and Culture Café in the cultural district of Amman [NB the embassy chap described this to me as ‘the Shoreditch of Amman’], Camilla enjoyed a cuddle with four-week-old baby Sarah Abu Ammerah.

Sarah’s mother Dr Alaa Azzam, 42, a Physics Professor at the University of Jordan, said: ‘The Duchess said to me “Sarah will be one of the women of the future and that is very inspiring.”’

Camilla was presented with a picture of herself, framed with the words ‘Women Empowerer’.
