While many royalists congratulated the veterans, many also commented on how well the Duchess looks.

"The duchess looks lovely!"

One user wrote: "The Duchess looks lovely!' and another posted: "Another simply beautiful outfit!"

A third user commented: "What a lovely coat dress" and a further user remarked: "Camilla looks wonderful."

Yet another gushed: "RH the Duchess of Cornwall is such a beauty and amazing asset to the Royal Family."

However, some users were a little concerned that neither the Chelsea Pensioners nor Camilla were wearing face masks.

A user asked: "Why don't these folks wear face masks?" and another user replied: "Same thought I had."

However, a user reassured them: "They only need to wear them in medical settings or on public transportation. British recommendations are far different from American ones."

And it is clear from the photos and videos shared that Camilla is maintaining social distance throughout her appearance.
