Queen Camilla’s Coronation Gown Designer Has Been Creating Dramatic Looks for the Royals for Decades

It had been rumored since February that Queen Consort Camilla had commissioned Bruce Oldfield, British couturier and longtime friend of the royal family, to design her coronation dress. It isn’t surprising that Queen Camilla turned to someone she already trusts, having worked with Oldfield to design pieces for other landmark moments, from the 2016 State Opening of Parliament to the 2021 premiere of No Time to Die. Even in her shoot for the July 2022 issue of British Vogue—her first solo appearance in the magazine—Camilla opted to wear a Bruce Oldfield design, a lace evening gown in royal blue selected from her personal wardrobe.

“The embellishment of the Coronation dress features delicate garlands of abstract wildflowers from fields and hedgerows: daisy chains, forget-me-nots, celandine, and scarlet pimpernel, representing The King and The Queen Consort’s affection for nature and the British countryside,” Buckingham Palace revealed in a statement.
