In the past, the only glimpse of what the members of the Royal Family were wearing to the Diplomatic Corps reception was from the car arrivals. Leaving most of the outfit to the imagination.

All three royal ladies were on the page in shades of white, embellished with beading and crystals.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a bespoke Jenny Packham off-white gown with silver crystals, and slightly off-shoulder cap sleeves. She completed her outfit with the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara and pearl earrings.

Her Majesty wore a dress by Angela Kelly and one of her favourite tiaras, the Queen Mary Girls of Great Britain and Ireland. Finished with a gold purse.
