The Duchess's Sun Parasol
A custom sun parasol was designed by Sunbella and gifted to the Duchess of Cornwall by the State of Western Australia.
Perth Nurse Jillian Intini first designed Sunbella sun parasols to give women a stylish alternative to existing sun protection options, after seeing too many women suffering from skin cancer.
The parasol gifted to the Duchess has a white cotton canopy that features the highest possible UPF rating; meaning it blocks over 98% of UV rays making it perfect for the hot weather in Australia. This particular parasol featured a unique tear-drop handle that was hand-turned by a local retiree at the Wood Turners Association of Western Australia.
“We’re so proud of Western Australia and I hope that we helped The Duchess to enjoy her stay here, particularly with such hot weather. We created Sunbella so that women can enjoy our incredible outdoor lifestyle and WA's stunning natural attractions in a stylish and sun-safe way.” - Jillian Intini
