Meghan and Kate are Known for Creating a Fashion Frenzy with Everything They Wear

Meghan and Kate are known for creating a fashion frenzy with everything they wear… but apparently it’s another royal who has caught the eye of the fashion press with her style.

Secrets of the Royal Dressmaker, which aired last night on Channel 5, claimed that Vogue editor Edward Enninful is a huge fan of the Duchess of Cornwall’s style, and even wants to secure her as his next royal cover-star.

If it comes to pass, Camilla would be following in the footsteps of her daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, who was British Vogue’s centenary cover star in April 2016.

Royal correspondent Emily Andrews said: ‘Edward Enninful, who’s the new editor of Vogue, adores Camilla, he thinks she’s the best-dressed royal,’ she said.

Andrews, who starred along with other royal experts in the Channel 5 documentary Secrets of the Royal Dressmaker, revealed that Enninful admired Camilla’s sense of style.

She went on: ‘He thinks she’s gorgeous and he wants to put her on the cover of Vogue.’

Camilla wouldn’t be the first royal to grace the cover of Vogue, as both Kate Middleton and Princess Diana have taken on the iconic magazine.

The Duchess of Cambridge graced the cover of Vogue in June 2016 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of British Vogue.

Vogue and the National Portrait Gallery collaborated on the series of striking photographic portraits which show a dressed-down and casual Kate relaxing in the countryside.

Shot in the Norfolk countryside and styled by Vogue Fashion Director Lucinda Chambers, the photographs captured the Duchess relaxed and happy, dressed down in casual clothes.

Kate followed in the footsteps of Princess Diana, who graced the cover of Vogue four times, shot by Patrick Demarchelier in July 1994 and December 1991 and in August 1981 when she was photographed by Lord Snowdon.

For the 1981 issue, the cover featured a then Lady Diana Spencer, with the magazine entitled, ‘The Day of the Wedding’, published before Charles and Diana’s wedding.

She also appeared on the cover posthumously in October 1997, when a photograph taken from 1994 was used for a special tribute issue to mark her death two months earlier.

Valentino, Mario Testino, Manolo Blahnik and John Galliano were among the fashion figures who used the magazine to pay tribute to the Princess.

At the time, a spokesperson for the Duchess of Cambridge said: ‘Since 1916, Vogue has been a leading champion of British portraiture.

‘The Duchess was delighted to play a part in celebrating the centenary of an institution that has given a platform to some of the most renowned photographers in this country’s history.’

Calling Camilla’s style ‘classic, royal expert Ingrid Stewart said: ‘She is a classic good plain dresser.’

Whilst she opts for fairly classic outfits for royal occasions, she suggested Camilla and Kate had similar attitudes towards style.

Kate Middleton, who grew up in the English countryside of Berkshire, shares Camilla’s love for a classic informal outfit.

Royal author Claudia Joseph explained: ‘Camilla, like Kate, is much happier in jeans and wellies playing with her grandchildren and dogs than she is in posh frocks.’

She went on that say that when Camilla does dress up, she likes to keep it traditional with tailored dresses that she knows will suit her shape.

‘She wears quite traditional clothing, elegant, tailored, not showing too much flesh. ‘

Roy Allen has been dressing Camilla for the past 14 years, and revealed he always sticks to the same shape in order to accentuate her waist.

He said the Duchess of Cornwall knows what made he feel and look good, and tends to opt for similar options for a variety of royal events.
