Kate Middleton wore an Alexander McQueen gown to the Queen’s 2019 Diplomatic Corps Reception—and it made quite the regal impression.
The dress was was a long and luxe, velvet gown complete with long sleeves, a subtle concave neckline, and a slim, body-skimming fit. She layered a blue sash, symbolizing her Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order honor from the Queen alongside her yellow brooch that signifies the Royal Family Order.
Before Kate made her entrance into the affair, we caught a glimpse of her tiara and beauty look for the evening. The Duchess decided to wear the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara from the House of Garrard, matching chandelier earrings, and an elegantly flushed makeup look to accompany the McQueen gown. Her shimmering, statement-making Nizam of Hyderabad necklace, which she previously wore to the 2014 Portrait Gala, made a repeat appearance as well.
The dress was a stark change from Kate’s 2018 Diplomatic Corps Reception gown where she had donned a Jenny Packham Cinderella-esque ensemble complete with an ever so relaxed boat neckline, subtle rhinestone detailing, cinched waist, and a flowing, empire style waist.
The Diplomatic Corps Reception is one of the most highly anticipated royal events of the year where senior members of the royal family and U.K. based global diplomats, ambassadors, and government officials all come together in their best white tie fashion to honor and celebrate the work they’ve accomplished for the year.
