Queen Camilla Honors Her Rescue Dogs by Embroidering Their Images on Her Coronation Gown

Camilla, the Queen of England, has two rescue dogs named Bluebell and Beth, and it seems that she loves them very much. In fact, it appears that she had their images embroidered on her coronation gown.

Queen Camilla’s coronation gown was a white coat dress created by Bruce Oldfield, and it had two dogs embroidered at the bottom.

Designer Bruce Oldfield created a historic gown for Queen Camilla that featured two dogs embroidered at the bottom. The gown was made in Battersea, London of Peau de Soie, a silk fabric. According to Oldfield, the gown reflected a more modern representation of the king and queen consort’s love for nature and the British countryside.

He also looked back at previous coronation gowns for inspiration. Oldfield stated that this commission was the most important of his life and he felt honored to have been asked to design it.

Additionally, the names of the Queen’s children and grandchildren were embroidered on the dress. Oldfield said that the gown reflects the King and Queen’s love for nature and the British countryside and is a modern interpretation of royal attire.

Queen Camilla has expressed her fondness for dogs, stating in the introduction to Top Dogs: A British Love Affair that her own dogs, Beth and Bluebell, are a source of pride due to their resilience, even though they have not saved any lives.

Queen Camilla adopted her two Jack Russells, Beth and Bluebell, from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. Bluebell was found abandoned in the woods at three weeks old, while Beth came from a family that could no longer care for her. Camilla visited the Battersea centre in 2012 and fell in love with Bluebell.
