Queen Camilla steps out in Dior dress days after Meghan distances herself from brand deal

NewsQueen Camilla steps out in Dior dress days after Meghan distances herself from brand deal

Queen Camilla donned an elegant gem-embellished coat and dress from Dior for the first day of the horse racing event.

She combined the bespoke white outfit with a white hat from royal favourite Philip Treacy and the stunning Courtauld Thomson Scallop-Shell Brooch.

Interestingly, the Queen Consort wore a Dior ensemble days after Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, reportedly decided to distance herself from the brand.

Recent reports suggested that Meghan was going to sign a multi-million dollar contract with the French fashion brand and become the brand’s ambassador, or “Duchess of Dior”.

Paris-based brand Dior, however, denied having any agreement or recent contact with the Duchess of Sussex.

A spokesman for Dior in Paris told Women’s Wear Daily that “the reports are unfounded” and stressed that “there have been no contract negotiations or recent contact with Markle”.

Meghan has worn designs from the French house on many occasions, including the black dress she donned for the Royal Air Force centenary celebrations in 2018.

Most recently, the Duchess of Sussex wore a statement white dress for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee service Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Queen Camilla has also chosen Dior for the most significant occasions, such as during a visit to France and Normandy in 2013. The monarch also visited the brand’s showroom in Paris during a solo trip a few years ago.

The Queen looked phenomenal at Ascot this week in her Dior ensemble and royal fans took to social media to praise her style.

On Instagram, @eliza_greensmith commented that “Dior is fabulous at any age” and added that the Queen looked “stunning”.

Another one, @birdnerd327, said: “Dior and bling. What’s not to like?! Love her sleeves! And the hat is fab too.”

Social media user @la_nadi_kovic commented: “Absolutely beautiful. Love the details!”

Royal fan @luxmeagainpreloved added: “Very striking in head to toe-off white! Would have never taken this look for a Dior. Reminds me of her style playbook of years gone by with A-line or inverted pleated or box pleated lower skirt and fabulous large hat!”

Express.co.uk has contacted Dior for comment.
