The Duchess of Cornwall made some furry friends today as she opened a new Medical Detection Dogs centre in Milton Keynes. 

Camilla, 71, dressed for the blustery weather in a smart emerald coat and classic long black boots.  

Fashion fans of the Duchess will notice she thriftily recycled one of her favourite polka dot dresses, which she has been pictured in several times since she first wore it in 2012.

The Duchess, who has been a patron of the charity since 2014, met a variety of medical assistance dogs as they performed a guard of honour during the visit 

Camilla was pictured in a near identical outfit in 2012 when she visited Battersea Cats and Dogs Home with her Jack Russel terriers Beth and Bluebell.  

Today she paired the outfit with a classic green £295 ‘Mini Venice’ handbag by DeMillier London, which is a favourite of the royal family – the Duchess of Sussex has also been pictured with the bag.

Meghan was snapped carrying it on one of her first public appearances in 2018, when she visited Cardiff, Wales with future husband Harry. 

Camilla, who has been a patron of the Medical Detection Dogs charity since 2014, added the final touch to her outfit with a ‘Medical Detection Dogs’ brooch.

The royal, who adopted two of her own dogs from Battesea Cats and Dogs Home in 2012, went on to meet dogs inside the centre 


The polka dot dress appears to be a favourite of the royal: She last wore it to visit a school in Brixton in February (pictured here) 

The Duchess walked along a guard of honour during the visit, greeting many of the friendly service dogs before one passed her the scissors she needed to open the centre. 

The centre aims to train medical alert assistance dogs, to support people with life threatening health conditions, as well as bio-detection dogs, who are able to detect the early onset of diseases.

During today’s visit the royal met a number of the Medical Detection Dogs clients, puppy socialisers, other volunteers and people who have helped the charity fund the new building. 

The charity’s new training centre has been built to provide space for the puppy socialising department, which makes sure the charity has enough dogs to train as future assistance dogs and bio detection dogs.

It also includes space for a team who support applicants to the medical alert assistance dog scheme.  

Camilla has always been a dog lover, adopting two of her own pets Beth and Bluebell from Battersea Cats and Dogs Home in 2012.
