Camilla often wears low, often leather, pumps. Last year, she wore a pair from Chanel, featuring a cap-toe, for a reception at Buckingham Palace. She also wore a pair of light brown pumps from Sole Bliss to the Paris Flower Market last year.

About the shoe

Camilla’s shoe was a classic pump. Only a few inches in height, the shoe featured a heel that was thinner than a block heel and thicker than a stiletto. The shoe was also made of dark brown leather, with no visible seams.
