The Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex made a glamorous appearance tonight at the Rifles Awards Dinner in London.

Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles, Camilla, 74, cut a dapper figure in a floor-length black dress with a nifty V-neck around the luscious gem-studded necklace she received on her arrival at the City of London.

Equally fashionable looking, Sophie stole the limelight with a touch of color in her role as Royal Colonel when she opted for a bright blue maxi dress with a ruched waist and an angular neckline.

The Duchess and Countess were accompanied on the biennial occasion by the Queen’s first cousins, the Duke of Kent and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

Camilla beamed when she arrived at the event where she met with members, veterans, and specially invited guests for a reception – where she’ll say a few words.

She paired her sophisticated ensemble with a gem-studded clutch and wore The Rifles’ silver Bugle Horn brooch that she received last year after Prince Philip conferred the historic military title of Colonel of The Rifles Infantry Regiment on her in July.

To compliment the glitzy outfit, the Prince of Wales’s wife opted for some glamorous makeup to accentuate her look and kept her blonde locks open.

Making sure she looked just as elegant as Camilla, Sophie opted for a brightly colored set of diamond earrings and a silver brooch while pairing her bright dress with a metallic clutch.

The Queen’s daughter-in-law held her hair up to better show off her glamorous jewels and sported a bronze makeup look as well as a smoky eye.

The Duke of Edinburgh was closely associated with The Rifles and its previous regiments for nearly 70 years. In a socially distant ceremony, he transferred his role as Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles to the Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Philip remained in isolation at Windsor Castle while the Duchess of Cornwall was at Highgrove.

The Duke of Edinburgh was officially thanked for his 67 years of support and service to The Rifles and their formation and previous regiments.

The Duchess of Cornwall paid her first visit to The Rifles headquarters in September.

The Rifles were formed in February 2007 after the merger of four famous infantry regiments – The Devonshire and Dorset Light Infantry; The light infantry; The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire, and Wiltshire Light Infantry; and the royal green jackets.

Forged during the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, they are now the largest infantry regiment in the British Army. Their motto is: “Fast and fat”.
