Just days after wow'd the world on the red carpet at the Earthshot Prize Awards in Boston, Kate Middleton delivered another glamorous look for an event held at Buckingham Palace.

This evening, the Princess of Wales and her husband, Prince William, joined King Charles and Queen Camilla, the Queen Consort to host a reception for members of the Diplomatic Corps at the royal residence. Kate looked gorgeous in a red Jenny Packham gown with sequins embellishments and topped her long hair with the Lotus Flower Tiara (which is also sometimes referred to as the Papyrus Tiara), making this her second tiara moment in less than a month. This is her fourth time wearing this particular headpiece; she last wore it in 2015 for a state banquet in honor of the president of China, Xi Jinping, and also styled it with a red gown at the time.

To finish her look, Kate paired her elegant dress with Queen Elizabeth’s diamond earrings and wore the royal family order and the Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order star and sash. Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales looked dapper in a black tuxedo alongside his wife.

Tonight's reception celebrates one of the largest Diplomatic Corps in the world and will see Their Majesties meet representatives of countries accredited to the Court of St. James. The last time the Reception for the Diplomatic Corps was held was in December 2019 and was hosted by Queen Elizabeth. King Charles and Camilla, as well as the Prince and Princess of Wales, were also in attendance at the time.
