In celebration of the Poetry Together initiative’s return, which Camilla has been a long-time supporter of, a new photo of the Duchess has appeared on social media. In it, she wears a casual, “trendy” outfit and holds a Victoria Sponge cake.
Poetry Together brings both young and old people together through the “joy of poetry”.
Clarence House explained the initiative’s goal by sharing a photo of Camilla and her well-presented sponge cake on Instagram yesterday.
The post’s caption read: “In celebration of the return of @poetry_together tea parties this year, The Duchess has shared her recipe for a Victoria Sponge for young and old(er!) alike to enjoy after reciting a poem by heart together.
“Launched by @gylesbrandreth in 2019, the Poetry Together initiative aims to unite people of all ages through the power of poetry – and not forgetting plenty of tea and cake!
“After signing up, schools will be linked with their local care homes, allowing pupils and care home residents to come together to recite poetry together.
“This year’s events will be particularly special as schoolchildren and the elderly will be able to convene in person once again following last year’s event being forced online due to the pandemic.”
As well as sharing a recipe, Camilla posted a photo of herself smiling into the camera.
Instead of one of her usual smart dresses, blazers, or skirt suits, the Duchess wore a casual outfit for the picture.

The 74-year-old donned a royal blue jumper in a thin material with long sleeves.
Two white stripes run down the side of the sleeves giving the garment a sporty, athletic look.
The jumper has a sports brand feel to it, such as Adidas, but it is not known where it is from.
Underneath, Camilla wore a white polo shirt with only its collar on show.
The white collar is not a new look for Camilla, but the jumper is.
According to personal stylist and fashion expert Samantha Harman, the Duchess’ outfit was planned – the casual feel to her look was intended to make her seem “homely” and “human”.
Samantha said: “This is very much an at home, off-duty look. Which is deliberate.
“It makes the Duchess seem homely. It humanises her and she’s also doing something we might associate with our mothers or grandmothers – baking a cake.
“As she prepares to be the queen consort, she’ll be wanting to win the hearts and minds of the public, and what do we love more than cake.”
Samantha noted Camilla’s look fits in with the “athleisure” fashion trend, which sees style enthusiasts wearing sporty clothes everywhere, not only to the gym.
The personal stylist said: “In terms of the look itself, athleisure is huge right now.
“During lockdown, we obviously saw a massive rise in demand for pyjamas and homewear.
“But what we’re seeing now is much more luxe – something you can wear at home with your yoga pants, or dress up for lunch out.”
Samantha added: “This is such a great colour on the Duchess.
“As you get older, it’s tempting to opt for muted or darker colours, but as the Duchess proves here – bright colours can make you look so vibrant.
“Camilla often wears a white collar like this. Wearing white near the face breaks up the colour but also reflects light, which makes her skin glow.”
Although this is the first time royal fans have seen Camilla’s sporty jumper, the Duchess has worn “homely” casualwear in the past.
Last year during lockdown, she was pictured on various occasions wearing jeans and slouchy jumpers, giving people a glimpse into what she enjoys wearing from the comfort of her own home.
