Kate, 37, channelled Hollywood glamour in a bespoke, white, one-shoulder gown by designer favourite Alexander McQueen, with tulle flowers embroidered on one shoulder. She teamed it with glittery heels, believed to be Jimmy Choo’s £525 Romy style, and a jewel-topped satin clutch bag.
The mum-of-three accessorised with Princess Diana‘s diamond and south sea pearl dangle earrings. Diana wore the earrings to a Pavarotti Concert at The Royal Albert Hall in 1995.
Kate also borrowed the Queen’s diamond quatrefoil bracelet, which once belonged to the Queen Mother. The Duchess was first loaned the exquisite piece for the Anna Freud Centre Gala Dinner in November 2017.
Kate’s brunette locks were styled into an intricate updo and she finished her look with a shimmering grey smoky eye, bronzer and rose-pink lipstick.
Prince William was equally glamorous. The Duke looked smart in a black tux, complete with satin lapels, and a bow-tie for the ceremony.
