King Charles marked a special milestone this week as he welcomed President Cyril Ramaphosa and his wife, Tshepo Motsepe to the UK and held the first State Banquet of his reign. The royal family arrived in all their finery, especially Kate Middleton, who opted for a white, bridal-style designer gown which she paired with some sentimental jewelry.
Kate Middleton attended the white-tie event alongside Prince William, who also looked very dapper in a black suit. The mother of two wore a long white Jenny Packham gown, with silver, embellishment across the shoulders and an open-arm caped design.
Over her gown, she wore the family order, the GCVO star and sash and accessorized her look with a number of poignant pieces of jewelry, including the Lover’s Knot tiara (opens in new tab)- which features pearls and diamond and was frequently worn by Princess Diana, notably in 1983 and 1985.
To match her tiara, Princess Kate also wore a pearl bracelet from Queen Elizabeth’s jewelry collection, after also wearing the late Monarch's famous Bahrain pearl earrings on Remembrance Sunday (opens in new tab).
Royal fans were blown away by Kate’s white ensemble, dubbing her ‘stunning’ as they raced to comment on a picture shared by British Vogue on Instagram, one commented, “😍woww Princess Catherine.”
