Duchess of Cambridge attends first Palace garden tea party

The Duchess of Cambridge makes her Palace garden party debut

The Duchess of Cambridge continues her winning streak with the press and public alike as she attends her first Palace garden party last weekend. 

The duchess’ charming was overflowing, and so was his thrifty but glamorous fashion sense. She gave a second chance to the £1,200 Emilia Wickstead dress she wore during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee lunch in Windsor two weeks ago.

The duchess joined the Princess Royal, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Philip, the Queen, and other members of the Royal Family, together with some 8,000 guests for tea within the Buckingham Palace grounds. The Duke of Cambridge was nowhere to be seen however because he was at the RAF Valley in Anglesey, where he works as a search and rescue pilot.

The event was this year’s second Palace garden party, and the duchess’ first since becoming a part of the Royal Family.
