As the celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee intensify, today marked the gathering of an array of international royals at Windsor Castle for the World Sovereign’s Lunch. The Queen is one lady who definitely knows how to throw a party; the guests included so many royals from around the globe, that it was officially the biggest gathering of figureheads since the Queen’s Coronation in 1953! Now, that’s one A-Lister party to beat all A-Lister parties. Although, she may now realise that inviting the controversial King of Bahrain may have been a bit of a faux pas, as demonstrators have since set up in protest outside Buckingham Palace. Let’s hope this doesn’t affect Prince Charles’ Black Tie party and ruin the chance of a second Kate outfit in one day, as it’s set to take place there later this evening.
What Kate wore for lunch
For this afternoon’s special lunch, Kate in attendance with William, opted for a pink blush pleated Emilia Wickstead dress, which luckily for us, is one Kate outfit which is still in stock to buy. Surprisingly, she didn’t opt for any patriotic red, white, or blue given the occasion.
Temperley's expansion plans
This week we were also excited to hear the news that one of Kate's and sister Pippa’s favourite labels is in the process of expansion. Temperley, the brand in which the sisters are frequently photographed, is set to open its first ever London flagship store later this year in the exclusive Mayfair area. There’s no denying that the label has struggled in recent years, but thanks to its designs being seen on two of the most famous sisters in the world, this has encouraged a significant surge in sales.
